Some of my thoughts
- The Jewish People are connected to the Holy Land with a Biblical cord. Vechut Hameshulesh lo bimheiro yinotek (The triple-braided cord of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob cannot be easily severed).
- He who only knows how to talk, but cannot hear what others have to say - is talking to himself.
- If the grass isn't greener on the other side - then you have already seen the other side.
- One of the secrets to longevity - is to make the best out of every situation.
- "Countries have no friends, only interests" - Benjamin Disraeli, Prime Minister of Great Britain.
- "Napoleon has a brother; France has no brothers" - supposedly said by Napoleon
- "There is nothing in life so pathetic as a former president" - John Quincy Adams, 6th president of the United States. (Jimmy Carter comes to mind).
- "No iron spike can pierce a human heart as icily as a period in the right place" - Isaac Babel
- "A smart person, learns from the mistakes of others, an ordinary person learns from their own mistakes, and a fool never learns" - ?
