It takes all kinds


Pirkei Avot 1:2 - "Shimon haTzaddik, of the remnant of the Great Assembly, taught: The world stands on three things: Torah, Service and Acts of generosity."

"This also hints that there are three types of people in the world. Some pursue ideas and a life of intellectual study; some pursue a life of work and the tasks of plowing, planting and similar activities; some pursue a life of directing and governing to lead the nation and judge them, teaching them generously how to act. All of these are needed in the world."

(R' Shlomo b"R' Yitzchak haLevi, Lev Avot to Pirkei Avot 1:2)

Have a great day,
