No Pain, No Gain


"Ben Hei Hei taught: The reward received matches the pain invested."

(Pirkei Avot 5:23)

Rambam (Maimonides), known for his rigorous approach to study, noted: The only knowledge retained is knowledge which comes through strain and work, and respect for the teacher. Enjoyable reading, performed while resting, neither lasts nor benefits.

Have a great day,
