Are you Aggressor or Victim?


"Among a person's ethical obligations is to work to plant in his heart this great principle: That in every confrontation, he weigh upon the halachic scale who is the pursuer and who is the pursued.

"Study of ethics engenders love and mercy for the pursued, and bitter rage against the pursuer. How terrible is the obstacle, how great is the trap, to be among those who switch the pursuer for the pursued and the pursued for the pursuer!

"Knowledge of the truth can come only through the writings of the authorities, as transmitted to us by the pillars of the world, our masters of blessed memory."

(Chazon Ish, Emunah uBitachon 3:2)

Have a great day,
