"A customer once entered Rav Safra's store to make a purchase. He made an offer for an item, but R' Safra was reciting the daily 'Shma' and did not respond. The customer raised his offer repeatedly, and still Rav Safra did not respond.

"When Rav Safra completed the Shma, he said he would accept the initial price. He explained: 'I was willing to accept the first offer. Since in my heart I said 'Yes' - although I could not speak - I will not change my mind."

(She'iltot d'Rav Achai, Vayyechi 36)

Have a great day,
