+ 403 I originally welcomed the mobile phone, as it seemed to me that it would enable you to work from anywhere.

+ 428 Do I really want to do a mobile game that's one of 300,000, where discoverability is everything? You really have to have a little more sizzle on the steak. I would rather be one of 100 apps for Google Glass than one of 300,000 for iOS and Android. Nolan Bushnell


+ 399 Britain, however, has ended up specializing in the ones you don't see as much of: defense aerospace, making drive shafts for cars, pills and drugs, designing chips that go into 94 percent of the world's mobile phones. Evan Davis


+ 470 Look for when the environment is changing - the big shift now is mobile Internet. It's really happening big-time. The way you interact with services on a smart phone compared to the Web is quite different, so there's a huge opportunity. Niklas Zennstrom

+ 373 Instagram was created because there was no single place dedicated to giving your mobile photos a place to live and to be seen. Kevin Systrom


+ 412 People interact with their phones very differently than they do with their PCs, and I think that when you design from the ground up with mobile in mind, you create a very different product than going the other way. Kevin Systrom

+ 516 I just think people have a lot of fiction. But, you know, I mean, the real story of Facebook is just that we've worked so hard for all this time. I mean, the real story is actually probably pretty boring, right? I mean, we just sat at our computers for six years and coded. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 384 I think a simple rule of business is, if you do the things that are easier first, then you can actually make a lot of progress. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 436 Think about what people are doing on Facebook today. They're keeping up with their friends and family, but they're also building an image and identity for themselves, which in a sense is their brand. They're connecting with the audience that they want to connect to. It's almost a disadvantage if you're not on it now. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 362 All of my friends who have younger siblings who are going to college or high school - my number one piece of advice is: You should learn how to program. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 450 One good habit can change your whole life. Begin to keep promises. Especially promises given for yourself.


+ 420 I updated my grilling app, iGrill, today and it now has Facebook integration that lets you see what other people are grilling right now around the world. Awesome. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 353 Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 434 We want Facebook to be one of the best places people can go to learn how to build stuff. If you want to build a company, nothing better than jumping in and trying to build one. But Facebook is also great for entrepreneurs/hackers. If people want to come for a few years and move on and build something great, that's something we're proud of. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 344 The companies that work are the ones that people really care about and have a vision for the world so do something you like. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 410 When you give everyone a voice and give people power, the system usually ends up in a really good place. So, what we view our role as, is giving people that power. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 463 I actually do think you're seeing this trend towards organizations just caring more about their brand and engaging. And so I think Home Depot will want to humanize itself. I think that's a lot of why companies are starting blogs, are just giving more insight into what's going on with them. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 416 I think that more flow of information, the ability to stay connected to more people makes people more effective as people. And I mean, that's true socially. It makes you have more fun, right. It feels better to be more connected to all these people. You have a richer life. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 430 In terms of doing work and in terms of learning and evolving as a person, you just grow more when you get more people's perspectives... I really try and live the mission of the company and... keep everything else in my life extremely simple. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 455 It used to be the case, like you'd switch jobs, and then maybe you wouldn't keep in touch with all the people that you knew from that old job, just because it was too hard. But one of the things that Facebook does is it makes it really easy to just stay in touch with all these people. Mark Zuckerberg


+ 382 People don't understand the logistics of advertising. To have the ads purchased and run, you need to have a series of products that work together. Susan Wojcicki


+ 333 The great thing about the Internet is you can launch a product, and within just a few hours, people will tell you what they think about it. Susan Wojcicki


+ 424 First there's my role just as an executive being responsible for advertising, regardless of gender. I think that's a position that I take seriously. That's the first role. But I think for my role as a woman at Google, you try to set a good example and be a role model for the other women in the organization. Susan Wojcicki


+ 379 I think the phone is a really personal device in a lot of ways. If you drop your phone or lose it there's a moment of panic. On the other hand there's a lot of control that users have. Susan Wojcicki


+ 380 Though we do need more women to graduate with technical degrees, I always like to remind women that you don't need to have science or technology degrees to build a career in tech. Susan Wojcicki


+ 425 Today, most young women are exposed to technology at a very young age, with mobile phones, tablets, the Web or social media. They are much more proficient with technology than prior generations since they use it for all their school work, communication and entertainment. Susan Wojcicki

+ 404 I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate. George Burns


+ 433 I feel there's an existential angst among young people. I didn't have that. They see enormous mountains, where I only saw one little hill to climb. Sergey Brin


+ 365 We want Google to be the third half of your brain. Sergey Brin


+ 410 Once you go from 10 people to 100, you already don't know who everyone is. So at that stage you might as well keep growing, to get the advantages of scale. Sergey Brin


+ 487 The kind of environment that we developed Google in, the reason that we were able to develop a search engine, is the web was so open. Once you get too many rules, that will stifle innovation. Sergey Brin


+ 361 Today, if you want to access a typical out-of-print book, you have only one choice - fly to one of a handful of leading libraries in the country and hope to find it in the stacks. Sergey Brin


+ 349 If you're changing the world, you're working on important things. You're excited to get up in the morning. Larry Page


+ 385 If you ask an economist what's driven economic growth, it's been major advances in things that mattered - the mechanization of farming, mass manufacturing, things like that. The problem is, our society is not organized around doing that. Larry Page


+ 401 Many leaders of big organizations, I think, don't believe that change is possible. But if you look at history, things do change, and if your business is static, you're likely to have issues. Larry Page


+ 422 The ultimate search engine would basically understand everything in the world, and it would always give you the right thing. And we're a long, long ways from that. Larry Page

+ 399 There is probably a perverse pride in my administration... that we were going to do the right thing, even if short-term it was unpopular.

Barack Obama


+ 332 In seeking happiness for others, you will find it in yourself.

And the icing on the cake is for me is to be able to walk around with pride, feeling that the product you put out is worthy of being watched. But honestly, it's not a big deal.

+ 375 It gave me a lot of pleasure and pride that 90 percent of the crew for 'Monsoon Wedding,' and most of my film, are women. We get the work done, you know, much lesser play of ego...

+ 406 Playing football and rugby is the Samoan sport. It's part of the conversation at church. It's part of the conversation in their barbershops, in the grocery stores.

+ 393 Gay life in 1970 was very bleak, compartmentalized. You didn't take it to work. You had to really lead a double life. There were bars, but you sort of snuck in and snuck out. Activism and gay pride simply didn't exist. I don't even think the word 'gay' was in existence. Larry Kramer

+ 358 I spent money, and I kept thinking, 'I get one more movie and I'll wipe these bills out,' but that movie never came. That black pride, I said, 'Man, I'm going to hang in there, I'm going to pay these bills.' So you owe a million dollars. 'I can pay that.' OK, fines, fees, now you owe two and a half million. 'But I didn't do nothin'!' Sinbad


+ 345 Before seeing 'The Pride of the Yankees,' you may or may not know that the Yankees referred to are the ones who win the World Series each year. After seeing it you will find that the reference is indirect. Manny Farber


+ 374 I'm certainly proud to be Cuban American, and it's a fantastic opportunity for anybody - regardless of their ethnicity or nationality. It does carry a measure or pride to know where you're from and to know what your roots are. Danny Pino


+ 403 I hate shows, personally, where people stand around tossing stuff at each other, and any character can say any line, because you don't believe any of these characters care for each other.

+ 335 Bring your desires down to your present means. Increase them only when your increased means permit. Aristotle

+ 345 Nothing great is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig. I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen. Epictetus


+ 309 Never in any case say I have lost such a thing, but I have returned it. Is your child dead? It is a return. Is your wife dead? It is a return. Are you deprived of your estate? Is not this also a return? Epictetus


+ 299 If you do not expect the unexpected you will not find it, for it is not to be reached by search or trail. Heraclitus

+ 293 One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. Plato

+ 243 Your silence gives consent. Plato


+ 265 The highest reach of injustice is to be deemed just when you are not. Plato

+ 360 I exhort you also to take part in the great combat, which is the combat of life, and greater than every other earthly conflict. Plato


+ 339 He who is of calm and happy nature will hardly feel the pressure of age, but to him who is of an opposite disposition youth and age are equally a burden. Plato

+ 284 The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear. Socrates


+ 387 I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled poets to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean. Socrates


+ 273 To know, is to know that you know nothing. That is the meaning of true knowledge. Socrates


+ 271 Be as you wish to seem. Socrates


+ 254 True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing. Socrates


+ 347 Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for. Socrates


+ 320 My advice to you is get married: if you find a good wife you'll be happy; if not, you'll become a philosopher. Socrates


+ 335 By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy; if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher. Socrates


+ 292 The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing. Socrates


+ 327 Has a philosopher like you failed to discover that our country is more to be valued and higher and holier far than mother or father or any ancestor, and more to be regarded in the eyes of the gods and of men of understanding? Socrates


+ 317 I realized that it was not by wisdom that poets write their poetry, but by a kind of nature or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets; for these also say many beautiful things, but do not know anything of what they say.


+ 435 Now answer me this. Do you think that the same holds of horses? Do people in general improve them, whereas one particular person corrupts them or makes them worse? Or is it wholly the opposite: one particular person - or the very few who are horse trainers - is able to improve them, whereas the majority of people, if they have to do with horses and make use of them, make them worse? Isn't that true, Meletus, both of horses and of all other animals? Of course it is, whether you and Anytus say so or not. Indeed, our young people are surely in a very happy situation if only one person corrupts them, whereas all the rest benefit them.


+ 368 Either I do not corrupt them, or I corrupt them unintentionally, so that on either view of the case you lie. If my offense is unintentional, the law has no cognizance of unintentional offenses; you ought to have taken me privately, and warned and admonished me; for if I had been better advised, I should have left off doing what I only did unintentionally — no doubt I should; whereas you hated to converse with me or teach me, but you indicted me in this court, which is the place not of instruction, but of punishment.


+ 441 Someone will say: And are you not ashamed, Socrates, of a course of life which is likely to bring you to an untimely end? To him I may fairly answer: There you are mistaken: a man who is good for anything ought not to calculate the chance of living or dying; he ought only to consider whether in doing anything he is doing right or wrong — acting the part of a good man or a bad. ...For wherever a man's place is, whether the place he has chosen or that where he has been placed by a commander. there he ought to remain in the hour of danger; he should not think of death or of anything, but of disgrace.


+ 476 I shall never cease from the practice and teaching of philosophy, exhorting anyone whom I meet after my manner, and convincing him, saying: O my friend, why do you who are a citizen of the great and mighty and wise city of Athens, care so much about laying up the greatest amount of money and honor and reputation, and so little about wisdom and truth and the greatest improvement of the soul, which you never regard or heed at all? Are you not ashamed of this? And if the person with whom I an arguing says: Yes, but I do care: I do not depart or let him go at once; I interrogate and examine and cross-examine him, and if I think that he has no virtue, but only says that he has, I reproach him with overvaluing the greater, and undervaluing the less. ...For this is the command of God, as I would have you know...


+ 390 I do nothing but go about persuading you all, old and young alike, not to take thought for your persons or your properties, but and chiefly to care about the greatest improvement of the soul. I tell you that virtue is not given by money, but that from virtue comes money and every other good of man, public as well as private. This is my teaching, and if this is the doctrine which corrupts the youth, I am a mischievous person.


+ 397 If you kill such a one as I am, you will injure yourselves more than you will injure me. Meletus and Anytus will not injure me: they cannot; for it is not in the nature of things that a bad man should injure one better than himself. I do not deny that he may, perhaps, kill him, or drive him into exile, or deprive him of civil rights; and he may imagine, and others may imagine, that he is doing him a great injury: but in that I do not agree with him; for the evil of doing what Anytus is doing — of unjustly taking away another man's life — is greater far.


+ 432 So now, Athenian men, more than on my own behalf must I defend myself, as some may think, but on your behalf, so that you may not make a mistake concerning the gift of god by condemning me. For if you kill me, you will not easily find another such person at all, even if to say in a ludicrous way, attached on the city by the god, like on a large and well-bred horse, by its size and laziness both needing arousing by some gadfly; in this way the god seems to have fastened me on the city, some such one who arousing and persuading and reproaching each one of you I do not stop the whole day settling down all over. Thus such another will not easily come to you, men, but if you believe me, you will spare me; but perhaps you might possibly be offended, like the sleeping who are awakened, striking me, believing Anytus, you might easily kill, then the rest of your lives you might continue sleeping, unless the god caring for you should send you another.


+ 374 If I had engaged in politics, I should have perished long ago and done no good to either you or to myself. ...for the truth is that no man who goes to war with you or any other multitude, honestly struggling against the commission of unrighteouosness and wrong in the State, will save his life; he who will really fight for right, if he would live even for a little while, must have a private station and not a public one.


+ 393 I have had no regular disciples: but if anyone likes to come and hear me while I am pursuing my mission, whether he be young or old, he may freely come. Nor do I converse with those who pay only, and not with those who do not pay; but anyone, whether he be rich or poor, may ask and answer me and listen to my words; and whether he turns out to be a bad man or a good one, that cannot be justly laid to my charge, as I never taught him anything. And if anyone says that he has ever learned or heard anything from me in private which all the world has not heard, I should like you to know that he is speaking an untruth.


+ 378 I did not go where I could do no good to you or to myself; but where I could do the greatest good privately to everyone of you, thither I went, and sought to persuade every man among you that he must look to himself, and seek virtue and wisdom before he looks to his private interests, and look to the State before he looks to the interests of the State; and that this should be the order which he observes in all his actions. What shall be done to such a one? Doubtless some good thing.


+ 450 Someone will say: Yes, Socrates, but cannot you hold your tongue, and then you may go into a foreign city, and no one will interfere with you? Now I have great difficulty in making you understand my answer to this. For if I tell you that this would be a disobedience to a divine command, and therefore that I cannot hold my tongue, you will not believe that I am serious; and if I say that the greatest good of a man is daily to converse about virtue, and all that concerning which you hear me examining myself and others, and that the life which is unexamined is not worth living — that you are still less likely to believe.


+ 383 I would rather die having spoken in my manner, than speak in your manner and live. For neither in war nor yet in law ought any man use every way of escaping death. For often in battle there is no doubt that if a man will throw away his arms, and fall on his knees before his pursuers, he may escape death, if a man is willing to say or do anything. The difficulty, my friends, is not in avoiding death, but in avoiding unrighteousness; for that runs deeper than death.


+ 394 And I prophesy to you who are my murderers, that immediately after my death punishment far heavier than you have inflicted on me will surely await you. Me you have killed because you wanted to escape the accuser, and not to give an account of your lives. But that will not be as you suppose: far otherwise. For I say that there will be more accusers of you than there are now; accusers whom hitherto I have restrained: and as they are younger they will be more severe with you, and you will be more offended at them. For if you think that by killing men you can avoid the accuser censoring your lives, you are mistaken; that is not a way of escape which is either possible or honorable; the easiest and the noblest way is not to be crushing others, but to be improving yourselves.


+ 395 When my sons are grown up, I would ask you, O my friends, to punish them; and I would have you to trouble them, as I have troubled you, if they seem to care about riches, or anything, more than about virtue; or if they pretend to be something when they are really nothing — then reprove them, as I have reproved you, for not caring about that for which they ought to care, and thinking that they are something when they are really nothing. And if you do this, I and my sons will have received justice at your hands.


+ 321 The hour of departure has arrived, and we go our ways — I to die and you to live. Which is the better, only God knows.


+ 381 There is a doctrine uttered in secret that a man is a prisoner who has no right to open the door to his prison and run away; this is a great mystery which I do not understand. Yet I too, believe that the gods are our guardians, and that we are a possession of theirs. ...And if one of your possessions, an ox or an ass, for example took the liberty of putting himself out of the way when you had given no intimation of your wish that he should die, would you not be angry with him, and would you not punish him if you could? ...Then there may be reason in saying that a man should wait, and not take his own life until God summons him, as he is now summoning me.


+ 339 If generation were in a straight line only, and there were no compensation or circle in nature, no turn or return into one another, then you know that all things would at last have the same form and pass into the same state, and there would be no more generation of them.


+ 365 Let us... be careful of admitting into our souls the notion that there is no truth or health or soundness in any arguments at all; but let us rather say that there is as yet no health in us, and that we must quit ourselves like men and do our best to gain health--you and all other men with a view to the whole of your future life, and I myself with a view to death.


+ 454 When I was young, Cebes, I had a prodigious desire to know the department of philosophy which is called Natural Science; this appeared to me to have lofty aims, as being the science which has to do with the causes of things, and which teaches why a thing is, and is created and destroyed; and I always agitated myself with the consideration of such questions as these... I went on to examine the decay of them, and then to the study of the heaven and earth, and at last I concluded that I was wholly incapable of these inquiries... There was a time when I thought that I understood the meaning of greater and less pretty well... that ten is more than eight, and that two cubits are more than one, because two is twice one. I should be far from imagining... that I knew the cause of any of them, indeed I should, for I cannot satisfy myself that when one is added to one, the one to which the addition is made becomes two... nor can I understand how the division of one is the way to make two; for then a different cause would produce the same effect.


+ 418 And thus one man makes a vortex all round and steadies the earth by the heaven; another gives the air as support for the earth, which is sort of a broad trough. Any power which in disposing them as they are disposes them for the best never enters into their minds, not do they imagine that there is any superhuman strength in that; they rather expect to find another Atlas of the world who is stronger and more everlasting and more containing than the good is, and are clearly of the opinion that the obligatory and containing power of the good is as nothing; and yet this is the principle which I would fain learn if anyone would teach me. But as I have failed either to discover myself or to learn of anyone else, the nature of the best, I will exhibit to you, if you like, what I have found to be the second best mode of inquiring into the cause.


+ 350 I would not have him sorrow at my hard lot, or say at the burial, Thus we lay out Socrates, or, Thus we follow him to the grave or bury him; for false words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil. Be of good cheer then, my good Crito, and say that you are burying my body only, and do with that as is usual, and as you think best.


+ 476 What do you say about making a libation out of this cup to any god? ...I may and I must pray to the gods to prosper my journey from this to that other world--may this, then, which is my prayer, be granted to me. [Then holding the cup to his lips, quite readily and cheerfully he drank off the poison. And hitherto most of us had been able to control their sorrow; but now, when we saw him drinking, and saw too, that he had finished the draft, we could no longer forbear, and in spite of myself my own tears were flowing fast; so that I covered my face and wept over myself, for certainly I was not weeping over him, but at my own calamity at having lost such a companion. Nor was I the first, for Crito, when he found himself unable to restrain his tears, had got up, and moved away, and I followed; and at that moment, Apollodorus, who had been weeping all the time, broke out in a loud cry which made cowards of us all. Socrates alone retained his calmness:] What is this strange outcry? ...I sent away the women mainly in order that they might not offend in this way, for I have heard that a man should die in peace. Be quiet then, and have patience.


+ 297 You will know that the divine is so great and of such a nature that it sees and hears everything at once, is present everywhere, and is concerned with everything.


+ 353 Really, Ischomachus, I am disposed to ask: "Does teaching consist in putting questions?" Indeed, the secret of your system has just this instant dawned upon me. I seem to see the principle in which you put your questions. You lead me through the field of my own knowledge, and then by pointing out analogies to what I know, persuade me that I really know some things which hitherto, as I believed, I had no knowledge of.


+ 349 Socrates having heard Plato read the Lysis, said, "O Hercules! what a number of lies the young man has told about me." For he had set down a great many things as sayings of Socrates which he never said.


+ 331 The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. Socrates


+ 392 This man here is so bizarre, his ways so unusual, that, search as you might, you'll never find anyone else, alive or dead, who's even remotely like him. The best you do is not to compare him to anything human, but liken him, as I do, to Silenus and the satyrs, and the same goes for his ideas and arguments.


+ 344 Seemeth it nothing to you, never to accuse, never to blame either God or Man? to wear ever the same countenance in going forth as in coming in? This was the secret of Socrates: yet he never said that he knew or taught anything... Who amongst you makes this his aim? Were it indeed so, you would gladly endure sickness, hunger, aye, death itself.


+ 308 May all your cherished dreams come true and your life be always as bright as the brightest star in the sky!


+ 374 The wisest of you men is he who has realized, like Socrates, that in respect of wisdom he is really worthless.

+ 291 Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them. Dalai Lama

+ 285 If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion. Dalai Lama


+ 344 It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come. Dalai Lama

+ 326 Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you. Thomas Jefferson


+ 352 A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks. Thomas Jefferson

+ 347 Whenever a youth is ascertained to possess talents meriting an education which his parents cannot afford, he should be carried forward at the public expense. James Madison

+ 372 I can never consent to being dictated to as to what I shall or shall not do. I, as President, shall be responsible for my administration. I hope to have your hearty co-operation in carrying out its measures. So long as you see fit to do this, I shall be glad to have you with me. When you think otherwise, your resignations will be accepted. John Tyler

+ 312 Sir, if you are as happy in entering the White House as I shall feel on returning to Wheatland, you are a happy man indeed. James Buchanan


+ 543 Accounts of outrages committed by mobs form the every-day news of the times. They have pervaded the country from New England to Louisiana, they are neither peculiar to the eternal snows of the former nor the burning suns of the latter; they are not the creature of climate, neither are they confined to the slaveholding or the non-slaveholding States. Alike they spring up among the pleasure-hunting masters of Southern slaves, and the order-loving citizens of the land of steady habits. Whatever then their cause may be, it is common to the whole country. [...] Such are the effects of mob law, and such are the scenes becoming more and more frequent in this land so lately famed for love of law and order, and the stories of which have even now grown too familiar to attract anything more than an idle remark. But you are perhaps ready to ask, "What has this to do with the perpetuation of our political institutions?" I answer, "It has much to do with it." Its direct consequences are, comparatively speaking, but a small evil, and much of its danger consists in the proneness of our minds to regard its direct as its only consequences. Abraham Lincoln


+ 489 Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well-wisher to his posterity swear by the blood of the Revolution never to violate in the least particular the laws of the country, and never to tolerate their violation by others. As the patriots of seventy-six did to the support of the Declaration of Independence, so to the support of the Constitution and laws let every American pledge his life, his property, and his sacred honor—let every man remember that to violate the law is to trample on the blood of his father, and to tear the charter of his own and his children's liberty. Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap; let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in primers, spelling-books, and in almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation; and let the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the grave and the gay of all sexes and tongues and colors and conditions, sacrifice unceasingly upon its altars. While ever a state of feeling such as this shall universally or even very generally prevail throughout the nation, vain will be every effort, and fruitless every attempt, to subvert our national freedom. Abraham Lincoln


+ 491 It is to deny, what the history of the world tells us is true, to suppose that men of ambition and talents will not continue to spring up amongst us. And, when they do, they will as naturally seek the gratification of their ruling passion, as others have so done before them. The question then, is, can that gratification be found in supporting and maintaining an edifice that has been erected by others? Most certainly it cannot. Many great and good men sufficiently qualified for any task they should undertake, may ever be found, whose ambition would inspire to nothing beyond a seat in Congress, a gubernatorial or a presidential chair; but such belong not to the family of the lion, or the tribe of the eagle. What! think you these places would satisfy an Alexander, a Caesar, or a Napoleon? — Never! Towering genius disdains a beaten path. It seeks regions hitherto unexplored. — It sees no distinction in adding story to story, upon the monuments of fame, erected to the memory of others. It denies that it is glory enough to serve under any chief. It scorns to tread in the footsteps of any predecessor, however illustrious. It thirsts and burns for distinction; and, if possible, it will have it, whether at the expense of emancipating slaves, or enslaving freemen. Is it unreasonable then to expect, that some man possessed of the loftiest genius, coupled with ambition sufficient to push it to its utmost stretch, will at some time, spring up among us? And when such a one does, it will require the people to be united with each other, attached to the government and laws, and generally intelligent, to successfully frustrate his designs. Abraham Lincoln


+ 368 Allow the President to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so, whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such purpose, and you allow him to make war at pleasure. Study to see if you can fix any limit to his power in this respect, after having given him so much as you propose. If, to-day, he should choose to say he thinks it necessary to invade Canada, to prevent the British from invading us, how could you stop him? You may say to him, "I see no probability of the British invading us" but he will say to you, "Be silent; I see it, if you don't." The provision of the Constitution giving the war making power to Congress was dictated, as I understand it, by the following reasons. Kings had always been involving and impoverishing their people in wars, pretending generally, if not always, that the good of the people was the object. This, our Convention understood to be the most oppressive of all Kingly oppressions; and they resolved to so frame the Constitution that no one man should hold the power of bringing this oppression upon us. But your view destroys the whole matter, and places our President where kings have always stood. Abraham Lincoln


+ 297 In law it is a good policy never to plead what you need not, lest you oblige yourself to prove what you cannot. Abraham Lincoln


+ 292 The way for a young man to rise, is to improve himself every way he can, never suspecting that any body wishes to hinder him. Abraham Lincoln


+ 406 Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. Point out to them how the nominal winner is often a real loser — in fees, expenses, and waste of time. As a peacemaker the lawyer has a superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough. Abraham Lincoln


+ 433 There is a vague popular belief that lawyers are necessarily dishonest. I say vague, because when we consider to what extent confidence and honors are reposed in and conferred upon lawyers by the people, it appears improbable that their impression of dishonesty is very distinct and vivid. Yet the impression is common, almost universal. Let no young man choosing the law for a calling for a moment yield to the popular belief — resolve to be honest at all events; and if in your own judgment you cannot be an honest lawyer, resolve to be honest without being a lawyer. Choose some other occupation, rather than one in the choosing of which you do, in advance, consent to be a knave. Abraham Lincoln


+ 427 If A. can prove, however conclusively, that he may, of right, enslave B. Why may not B. snatch the same argument, and prove equally, that he may enslave A? You say A. is white, and B. is black. It is color, then; the lighter, having the right to enslave the darker? Take care. By this rule, you are to be slave to the first man you meet, with a fairer skin than your own. You do not mean color exactly? You mean the whites are intellectually the superiors of the blacks, and, therefore have the right to enslave them? Take care again. By this rule, you are to be slave to the first man you meet, with an intellect superior to your own. But, say you, it is a question of interest; and, if you can make it your interest, you have the right to enslave another. Very well. And if he can make it his interest, he has the right to enslave you. Abraham Lincoln


+ 402 You enquire where I now stand. That is a disputed point. I think I am a whig; but others say there are no whigs, and that I am an abolitionist. When I was at Washington I voted for the Wilmot Proviso as good as forty times, and I never heard of any one attempting to unwhig me for that. I now do more than oppose the extension of slavery. I am not a Know-Nothing. That is certain. How could I be? How can any one who abhors the oppression of negroes, be in favor of degrading classes of white people? Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes." When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty — to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be take pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy. Abraham Lincoln


+ 366 Our defense is in the preservation of the spirit which prizes liberty as the heritage of all men, in all lands, everywhere. Destroy this spirit, and you have planted the seeds of despotism around your own doors. Familiarize yourselves with the chains of bondage and you are preparing your own limbs to wear them. Accustomed to trample on the rights of those around you, you have lost the genius of your own independence, and become the fit subjects of the first cunning tyrant who rises. Abraham Lincoln


+ 439 Slavery is founded in the selfishness of man's nature — opposition to it, in his love of justice. These principles are an eternal antagonism; and when brought into collision so fiercely, as slavery extension brings them, shocks, and throes, and convulsions must ceaselessly follow. Repeal the Missouri Compromise — repeal all compromises — repeal the Declaration of Independence — repeal all past history, you still can not repeal human nature. It still will be the abundance of man's heart, that slavery extension is wrong; and out of the abundance of his heart, his mouth will continue to speak. Abraham Lincoln


+ 456 Those arguments that are made, that the inferior race are to be treated with as much allowance as they are capable of enjoying; that as much is to be done for them as their condition will allow. What are these arguments? They are the arguments that kings have made for enslaving the people in all ages of the world. You will find that all the arguments in favor of king-craft were of this class; they always bestrode the necks of the people, not that they wanted to do it, but because the people were better off for being ridden. That is their argument, and this argument of the Judge is the same old serpent that says you work and I eat, you toil and I will enjoy the fruits of it. Turn in whatever way you will, whether it come from the mouth of a King, an excuse for enslaving the people of this country, or from the mouth of men of one race as a reason for enslaving the men of another race, it is all the same old serpent, and I hold if that course of argumentation that is made for the purpose of convincing the public mind that we should not care about this, should be granted, it does not stop with the negro. I should like to know if, taking this old Declaration of Independence, which declares that all men are equal upon principle, and making exceptions to it, where will it stop? If one man says it does not mean a negro, why not another say it does not mean some other man? If that declaration is not the truth, let us get the Statute book, in which we find it, and tear it out! Who is so bold as to do it? If it is not true let us tear it out! Abraham Lincoln


+ 469 My friend has said to me that I am a poor hand to quote Scripture. I will try it again, however. It is said in one of the admonitions of our Lord, As your Father in Heaven is perfect, be ye also perfect. The Saviour, I suppose, did not expect that any human creature could be perfect as the Father in Heaven; but He said, As your Father in Heaven is perfect, be ye also perfect. He set that up as a standard; and he who did most toward reaching that standard, attained the highest degree of moral perfection. So I say in relation to the principle that all men are created equal, let it be as nearly reached as we can. If we cannot give freedom to every creature, let us do nothing that will impose slavery upon any other creature. Let us then turn this Government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it. Let us stand firmly by each other. If we do not do so we are turning in the contrary direction, that our friend Judge Douglas proposes — not intentionally — as working in the traces tend to make this one universal slave nation. He is one that runs in that direction, and as such I resist him. My friends, I have detained you about as long as I desired to do, and I have only to say, let us discard all this quibbling about this man and the other man; this race and that race and the other race being inferior, and therefore they must be placed in an inferior position; discarding our standard that we have left us. Let us discard all these things, and unite as one people throughout this land, until we shall once more stand up declaring that all men are created equal. My friends, I could not, without launching off upon some new topic, which would detain you too long, continue to-night. I thank you for this most extensive audience that you have furnished me to-night. I leave you, hoping that the lamp of liberty will burn in your bosoms until there shall no longer be a doubt that all men are created free and equal. Abraham Lincoln


+ 437 Now, I have upon all occasions declared as strongly as Judge Douglas against the disposition to interfere with the existing institution of slavery. You hear me read it from the same speech from which he takes garbled extracts for the purpose of proving upon me a disposition to interfere with the institution of slavery, and establish a perfect social and political equality between negroes and white people. Allow me while upon this subject briefly to present one other extract from a speech of mine, more than a year ago, at Springfield, in discussing this very same question, soon after Judge Douglas took his ground that negroes were not included in the Declaration of Independence: I think the authors of that notable instrument intended to include all men, but they did not mean to declare all men equal in all respects. They did not mean to say all men were equal in color, size, intellect, moral development, or social capacity. They defined with tolerable distinctness in what they did consider all men created equal — equal in "certain inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." This they said, and this they meant. They did not mean to assert the obvious untruth that all were then actually enjoying that equality, or yet that they were about to confer it immediately upon them. In fact, they had no power to confer such a boon. They meant simply to declare the right, so that the enforcement of it might follow as fast as circumstances should permit. They meant to set up a standard maxim for free society which should be familiar to all, constantly looked to, constantly labored for, and even, though never perfectly attained, constantly approximated, and thereby constantly spreading and deepening its influence, and augmenting the happiness and value of life to all people, of all colors, everywhere. Abraham Lincoln


+ 434 That is the real issue. That is the issue that will continue in this country when these poor tongues of Judge Douglas and myself shall be silent. It is the eternal struggle between these two principles — right and wrong — throughout the world. They are the two principles that have stood face to face from the beginning of time; and will ever continue to struggle. The one is the common right of humanity, and the other the divine right of kings. It is the same principle in whatever shape it develops itself. It is the same spirit that says, "You toil and work and earn bread, and I'll eat it." No matter in what shape it comes, whether from the mouth of a king who seeks to bestride the people of his own nation and live by the fruit of their labor, or from one race of men as an apology for enslaving another race, it is the same tyrannical principle. Abraham Lincoln


+ 446 I agree with you, Mr. Chairman, that the working men are the basis of all governments, for the plain reason that they are the most numerous, and as you added that those were the sentiments of the gentlemen present, representing not only the working class, but citizens of other callings than those of the mechanic, I am happy to concur with you in these sentiments, not only of the native born citizens, but also of the Germans and foreigners from other countries. Mr. Chairman, I hold that while man exists, it is his duty to improve not only his own condition, but to assist in ameliorating mankind; and therefore, without entering upon the details of the question, I will simply say, that I am for those means which will give the greatest good to the greatest number. Abraham Lincoln


+ 384 I have scarcely felt greater pain in my life than on learning yesterday from Bob's letter, that you had failed to enter Harvard University. And yet there is very little in it, if you will allow no feeling of discouragement to seize, and prey upon you. It is a certain truth, that you can enter, and graduate in, Harvard University; and having made the attempt, you must succeed in it. Must? is the word. I know not how to aid you, save in the assurance of one of mature age, and much severe experience, that you can not fail, if you resolutely determine, that you will not. Abraham Lincoln


+ 468 I thank you, in common with all others, who have thought fit, by their votes, to indorse the Republican cause. I rejoice with you in the success which has, so far, attended that cause. Yet in all our rejoicing let us neither express, nor cherish, any harsh feeling towards any citizen who, by his vote, has differed with us. Let us at all times remember that all American citizens are brothers of a common country, and should dwell together in the bonds of fraternal feeling. Abraham Lincoln


+ 418 Human action can be modified to some extent, but human nature cannot be changed. There is a judgment and a feeling against slavery in this nation, which cast at least a million and a half of votes. You cannot destroy that judgment and feeling — that sentiment — by breaking up the political organization which rallies around it. You can scarcely scatter and disperse an army which has been formed into order in the face of your heaviest fire; but if you could, how much would you gain by forcing the sentiment which created it out of the peaceful channel of the ballot-box, into some other channel? Abraham Lincoln


+ 423 If I saw a venomous snake crawling in the road, any man would say I might seize the nearest stick and kill it; but if I found that snake in bed with my children, that would be another question. I might hurt the children more than the snake, and it might bite them. Much more if I found it in bed with my neighbor's children, and I had bound myself by a solemn compact not to meddle with his children under any circumstances, it would become me to let that particular mode of getting rid of the gentleman alone. But if there was a bed newly made up, to which the children were to be taken, and it was proposed to take a batch of young snakes and put them there with them, I take it no man would say there was any question how I ought to decide! That is just the case! The new Territories are the newly made bed to which our children are to go, and it lies with the nation to say whether they shall have snakes mixed up with them or not. It does not seem as if there could be much hesitation what our policy should be! Abraham Lincoln


+ 391 You have done nothing, and have protested that you have done nothing, to injure the South. And yet, to get back the shoe trade, you must leave off doing something that you are now doing. What is it? You must stop thinking slavery wrong! Let your institutions be wholly changed; let your State Constitutions be subverted, glorify slavery, and so you will get back the shoe trade -- for what? You have brought owned labor with it to compete with your own labor, to underwork you, and to degrade you! Are you ready to get back the trade on those terms? Abraham Lincoln


+ 335 You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time. Abraham Lincoln


+ 401 Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. Abraham Lincoln


+ 241 In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years. Abraham Lincoln


+ 292 Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other. Abraham Lincoln


+ 291 A friend is one who has the same enemies as you have. Abraham Lincoln


+ 270 Be sure you put your feet in the right place, then stand firm. Abraham Lincoln


+ 293 You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today. Abraham Lincoln


+ 302 My great concern is not whether you have failed, but whether you are content with your failure. Abraham Lincoln


+ 253 Whatever you are, be a good one. Abraham Lincoln


+ 314 If once you forfeit the confidence of your fellow-citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem. Abraham Lincoln


+ 403 How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg. Abraham Lincoln


+ 291 Do not worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition. Abraham Lincoln


+ 281 Avoid popularity if you would have peace. Abraham Lincoln


+ 291 You have to do your own growing no matter how tall your grandfather was. Abraham Lincoln


+ 265 The way for a young man to rise is to improve himself in every way he can, never suspecting that anybody wishes to hinder him. Abraham Lincoln


+ 365 Allow the president to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such a purpose - and you allow him to make war at pleasure. Abraham Lincoln


+ 349 If you call a tail a leg, how many legs has a dog? Five? No, calling a tail a leg don't make it a leg. Abraham Lincoln


+ 356 When you have got an elephant by the hind legs and he is trying to run away, it's best to let him run. Abraham Lincoln


+ 375 Discourage litigation. Persuade your neighbors to compromise whenever you can. As a peacemaker the lawyer has superior opportunity of being a good man. There will still be business enough. Abraham Lincoln


+ 373 Our defense is in the preservation of the spirit which prizes liberty as a heritage of all men, in all lands, everywhere. Destroy this spirit and you have planted the seeds of despotism around your own doors. Abraham Lincoln


+ 256 Whenever you hear a man prating about the Constitution, spot him as a traitor. Andrew Johnson


+ 355 If you could extend the elective franchise to all persons of color who can read the Constitution of the United States in English and write their names and to all persons of color who own real estate valued at not less than two hundred and fifty dollars and pay taxes thereon, and would completely disarm the adversary. This you can do with perfect safety. And as a consequence, the radicals, who are wild upon negro franchise, will be completely foiled in their attempts to keep the Southern States from renewing their relations to the Union. Andrew Johnson


+ 359 Your President is now the Tribune of the people, and, thank God, I am, and intend to assert the power which the people have placed in me... Tyranny and despotism can be exercised by many, more rigorously, more vigorously, and more severely, than by one. Andrew Johnson


+ 427 The life of a republic lies certainly in the energy, virtue, and intelligence of its citizens; but it is equally true that a good revenue system is the life of an organized government. I meet you at a time when the nation has voluntarily burdened itself with a debt unprecedented in our annals. Vast as is its amount, it fades away into nothing when compared with the countless blessings that will be conferred upon our country and upon man by the preservation of the nation's life. Now, on the first occasion of the meeting of Congress since the return of peace, it is of the utmost importance to inaugurate a just policy, which shall at once be put in motion, and which shall commend itself to those who come after us for its continuance. We must aim at nothing less than the complete effacement of the financial evils that necessarily followed a state of civil war. Andrew Johnson


+ 265 I have known Andy for many years... he made a bad slip the other day, but you need not be scared. Andy ain't a drunkard. Abraham Lincoln


+ 265 My lord, I have heard that your father was a military man. Was that the case? Ulysses S. Grant


+ 274 The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Ulysses S. Grant


+ 306 Be fit for more than the thing you are now doing. Let everyone know that you have a reserve in yourself; that you have more power than you are now using. If you are not too large for the place you occupy, you are too small for it. James A. Garfield


+ 343 Poverty is uncomfortable, as I can testify; but nine times out of ten the best thing that can happen to a young man is to be tossed overboard and compelled to sink or swim for himself. James A. Garfield


+ 231 I thank you doctor, but I am a dead man. James A. Garfield


+ 355 Gentlemen of the Convention, your present temper may not mark the healthful pulse of our people. When your enthusiasm has passed, when the emotions of this hour have subsided, we shall find below the storm and passion that calm level of public opinion from which the thoughts of a mighty people are to be measured, and by which final action will be determined. James A. Garfield


+ 354 Then, after the storms of battle, were heard the calm words of peace spoken by the conquering nation, saying to the foe that lay prostrate at its feet: "This is our only revenge — that you join us in lifting into the serene firmament of the Constitution, to shine like stars for ever and ever, the immortal principles of truth and justice: that all men, white or black, shall be free, and shall stand equal before the law." James A. Garfield


+ 384 He has shown himself able to meet with calmness the great emergencies of the government. For twenty-five years he has trodden the perilous heights of public duty, and against all the shafts of malice has borne his breast unharmed. He has stood in the blaze of "that fierce light that beats against the throne"; but its fiercest ray has found no flaw in his armor, no stain upon his shield. I do not present him as a better Republican or a better man than thousands of others that we honor; but I present him for your deliberate and favorable consideration. I nominate John Sherman, of Ohio. James A. Garfield


+ 347 I am about to assume the great trust which you have committed to my hands. I appeal to you for that earnest and thoughtful support which makes this Government in fact, as it is in law, a government of the people. I shall greatly rely upon the wisdom and patriotism of Congress and of those who may share with me the responsibilities and duties of administration, and, above all, upon our efforts to promote the welfare of this great people and their Government I reverently invoke the support and blessings of Almighty God. James A. Garfield


+ 352 The laws and the entire scheme of our civil rule, from the town meeting to the State capitals and the national capital, is yours. Your every voter, as surely as your Chief Magistrate, under the same high sanction, though in a different sphere, exercises a public trust. Nor is this all. Every citizen owes to the country a vigilant watch and close scrutiny of its public servants and a fair and reasonable estimate of their fidelity and usefulness. Thus is the people's will impressed upon the whole framework of our civil polity — municipal, State, and Federal; and this is the price of our liberty and the inspiration of our faith in the Republic.


+ 428 We are not here today to bow before the representation of a fierce warlike god, filled with wrath and vengeance, but we joyously contemplate instead our own deity keeping watch and ward before the open gates of America and greater than all that have been celebrated in ancient song. Instead of grasping in her hand thunderbolts of terror and of death, she holds aloft the light which illumines the way to man's enfranchisement. We will not forget that Liberty has here made her home, nor shall her chosen altar be neglected. Willing votaries will constantly keep alive its fires and these shall gleam upon the shores of our sister Republic thence, and joined with answering rays a stream of light shall pierce the darkness of ignorance and man's oppression, until Liberty enlightens the world. Grover Cleveland


+ 301 What is the use of being elected or re-elected unless you stand for something? Grover Cleveland


+ 292 I have always been fond of the West African proverb "Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far." Theodore Roosevelt


+ 264 I'm as strong as a bull moose and you can use me to the limit. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 335 A good many of you are probably acquainted with the old proverb: "Speak softly and carry a big stick—you will go far." If a man continually blusters, if he lacks civility, a big stick will not save him from trouble; and neither will speaking softly avail, if back of the softness there does not lie strength, power. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 342 Life is as if you were traveling a ridge crest. You have the gulf of inefficiency on one side and the gulf of wickedness on the other, and it helps not to have avoided one gulf if you fall into the other. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 312 Be practical as well as generous in your ideals. Keep your eyes on the stars, but remember to keep your feet on the ground. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 248 I don't know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 287 Do what you can, with what you've got, where you are. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 364 Our Constitution guarantees equal rights to all our citizens, without discrimination on account of race or color. I have taken my oath to support that Constitution. It is the source of your rights and my rights. I propose to regard it, and administer it, as the source of the rights of all the people, whatever their belief or race. Calvin Coolidge


+ 441 You convey too great a compliment when you say that I have earned the right to the presidential nomination. No man can establish such an obligation upon any part of the American people. My country owes me no debt. It gave me, as it gives every boy and girl, a chance. It gave me schooling, independence of action, opportunity for service and honor. In no other land could a boy from a country village, without inheritance or influential friends, look forward with unbounded hope. My whole life has taught me what America means. I am indebted to my country beyond any human power to repay. Herbert Hoover


+ 259 Let me remind you that credit is the lifeblood of business, the lifeblood of prices and jobs. Herbert Hoover


+ 250 Older men declare war. But it is youth that must fight and die. Herbert Hoover


+ 338 You cannot extend the mastery of government over the daily life of a people without somewhere making it master of people's souls and thoughts.… Every step in that direction poisons the very roots of liberalism. It poisons political equality, free speech, free press, and equality of opportunity. It is the road not to more liberty but to less liberty. Herbert Hoover


+ 332 Blessed are the young, for they shall inherit the national debt. Herbert Hoover


+ 278 Older men declare war. But it is youth that must fight and die. And it is youth who must inherit the tribulation, the sorrow and the triumphs that are the aftermath of war. Herbert Hoover


+ 328 What this country needs is a great poem. John Brown’s Body was a step in the right direction. I’ve read it once, and I’m reading it again. But it’s too long to do what I mean. You can’t thrill people in 300 pages... The limit is about 300 words. Kipling’s “Recessional” really did something to England when it was published. It helped them through a bad time. Let me know if you find any great poems lying around. Herbert Hoover


+ 373 Dear Sallie: I am very sorry you have a cold and you are in bed. I played with Mary today for a little while. I hope by tomorrow you will be able to be up. I am glad today [sic] that my cold is better. Your loving, Franklin D. Roosevelt


+ 432 The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it: If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something. The millions who are in want will not stand by silently forever while the things to satisfy their needs are within easy reach. We need enthusiasm, imagination and the ability to face facts, even unpleasant ones, bravely. We need to correct, by drastic means if necessary, the faults in our economic system from which we now suffer. We need the courage of the young. Yours is not the task of making your way in the world, but the task of remaking the world which you will find before you. May every one of us be granted the courage, the faith and the vision to give the best that is in us to that remaking! Franklin D. Roosevelt


+ 282 I pledge you, I pledge myself, to a new deal for the American people. Franklin D. Roosevelt


+ 316 I'm just afraid that I may not have the strength to do this job. After you leave me tonight, Jimmy, I am going to pray. I am going to pray that God will help me, that he will give me the strength and the guidance to do this job and to do it right. I hope that you will pray for me, too, Jimmy. Franklin D. Roosevelt


+ 327 The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson — and I am not wholly excepting the Administration of W. W. The country is going through a repetition of Jackson's fight with the Bank of the United States — only on a far bigger and broader basis. Franklin D. Roosevelt


+ 266 I don't mind telling you in confidence that I am keeping in fairly close touch with that admirable Italian gentleman. Franklin D. Roosevelt


+ 300 I hope your committee will not permit doubts as to constitutionality, however reasonable, to block the suggested legislation. Franklin D. Roosevelt


+ 320 Yes, we are on the way back — not by mere chance, not by a turn of the cycle. We are coming back more soundly than ever before because we planned it that way, and don't let anybody tell you differently. Franklin D. Roosevelt


+ 365 Let me warn you, and let me warn the nation, against the smooth evasion that says: Of course we believe these things. We believe in social security. We believe in work for the unemployed. We believe in saving homes. Cross our hearts and hope to die! We believe in all these things. But we do not like the way that the present administration is doing them. Just turn them over to us. We will do all of them, we will do more of them, we will do them better and, most important of all, the doing of them will not cost anybody anything! Franklin D. Roosevelt

+ 434 Fiction pays best of all and when it is of fair quality is more easily sold. A good joke will sell quicker than a good poem, and, measured in sweat and blood, will bring better remuneration. Avoid the unhappy ending, the harsh, the brutal, the tragic, the horrible - if you care to see in print things you write. In this connection don't do as I do, but do as I say. Humour is the hardest to write, easiest to sell, and best rewarded. Do not write too much. Concentrate your sweat on one story, rather than dissipate it over a dozen. Don't loaf and invite inspiration; light out after it with a club, and if you don't get it you will nonetheless get something that looks remarkably like it. Jack London


+ 269 The more you accept herb, the more you accept rastafari. Bob Marley


+ 296 All dese governments and dis this and that, these people that say they're here to help, why them say you cannot smoke the herb? Herb... herb is a plant, you know? And when me check it, me can't find no reason. All them say is, 'it make you rebel'. Against what? Bob Marley

+ 265 First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. Mahatma Gandhi


+ 424 The popular medical formulation of morality that goes back to Ariston of Chios, "virtue is the health of the soul," would have to be changed to become useful, at least to read: "your virtue is the health of your soul." For there is no health as such, and all attempts to define a thing that way have been wretched failures. Even the determination of what is healthy for your body depends on your goal, your horizon, your energies, your impulses, your errors, and above all on the ideals and phantasms of your soul. Thus there are innumerable healths of the body; and the more we allow the unique and incomparable to raise its head again, and the more we abjure the dogma of the "equality of men," the more must the concept of a normal health, along with a normal diet and the normal course of an illness, be abandoned by medical men. Only then would the time have come to reflect on the health and illness of the soul, and to find the peculiar virtue of each man in the health of his soul. Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science, § 120 “Health of the Soul”

+ 364 And it comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don't get on the wrong track or try to do too much. We're always thinking about new markets we could enter, but it's only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important. Steve Jobs

+ 337 Bottom line is, I didn't return to Apple to make a fortune. I've been very lucky in my life and already have one. When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn't going to let it ruin my life. There's no way you could ever spend it all, and I don't view wealth as something that validates my intelligence. Steve Jobs

+ 263 Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Steve Jobs


+ 426 The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking. Don’t settle. Steve Jobs

+ 274 Whether you can observe a thing or not depends on the theory which you use. It is the theory which decides what can be observed. Albert Einstein

+ 334 Try and penetrate with our limited means the secrets of nature and you will find that, behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force beyond anything that we can comprehend is my religion. To that extent I am, in point of fact, religious. Albert Einstein

+ 326 Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding. You cannot subjugate a nation forcibly unless you wipe out every man, woman, and child. Unless you wish to use such drastic measures, you must find a way of settling your disputes without resort to arms. Albert Einstein


+ 419 Why does this magnificent applied science which saves work and makes life easier bring us so little happiness? The simple answer runs: Because we have not yet learned to make sensible use of it. In war it serves that we may poison and mutilate each other. In peace it has made our lives hurried and uncertain. Instead of freeing us in great measure from spiritually exhausting labor, it has made men into slaves of machinery, who for the most part complete their monotonous long day's work with disgust and must continually tremble for their poor rations. ... It is not enough that you should understand about applied science in order that your work may increase man's blessings. Concern for the man himself and his fate must always form the chief interest of all technical endeavours; concern for the great unsolved problems of the organization of labor and the distribution of goods in order that the creations of our mind shall be a blessing and not a curse to mankind. Never forget this in the midst of your diagrams and equations. Albert Einstein


+ 316 Today, in twelve countries, young men are resisting conscription and refusing military service. They are the pioneers of a warless world. Albert Einstein


+ 329 Everyone sits in the prison of his own ideas; he must burst it open, and that in his youth, and so try to test his ideas on reality. Albert Einstein


+ 276 As an eminent pioneer in the realm of high frequency currents... I congratulate you on the great successes of your life's work. Albert Einstein


+ 293 Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater. Albert Einstein


+ 400 I fully agree with you about the significance and educational value of methodology as well as history and philosophy of science. So many people today — and even professional scientists — seem to me like someone who has seen thousands of trees but has never seen a forest. A knowledge of the historic and philosophical background gives that kind of independence from prejudices of his generation from which most scientists are suffering. This independence created by philosophical insight is — in my opinion — the mark of distinction between a mere artisan or specialist and a real seeker after truth. Albert Einstein


+ 408 The position in which we are now is a very strange one which in general political life never happened. Namely, the thing that I refer to is this: To have security against atomic bombs and against the other biological weapons, we have to prevent war, for if we cannot prevent war every nation will use every means that is at their disposal; and in spite of all promises they make, they will do it. At the same time, so long as war is not prevented, all the governments of the nations have to prepare for war, and if you have to prepare for war, then you are in a state where you cannot abolish war. This is really the cornerstone of our situation. Now, I believe what we should try to bring about is the general conviction that the first thing you have to abolish is war at all costs, and every other point of view must be of secondary importance. Albert Einstein


+ 337 You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war. The very prevention of war requires more faith, courage and resolution than are needed to prepare for war. We must all do our share, that we may be equal to the task of peace. Albert Einstein


+ 281 I agree with your remark about loving your enemy as far as actions are concerned. But for me the cognitive basis is the trust in an unrestricted causality. Albert Einstein


+ 280 I do not know how the Third World War will be fought, but I can tell you what they will use in the Fourth — rocks! Albert Einstein


+ 332 I have repeatedly said that in my opinion the idea of a personal God is a childlike one. You may call me an agnostic, but I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters of religious indoctrination received in youth. I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being. Albert Einstein


+ 400 It is not enough to teach a man a specialty. Through it he may become a kind of useful machine but not a harmoniously developed personality. It is essential that the student acquire an understanding of and a lively feeling for values. He must acquire a vivid sense of the beautiful and of the morally good. Otherwise he—with his specialized knowledge—more closely resembles a well-trained dog than a harmoniously developed person. He must learn to understand the motives of human beings, their illusions, and their sufferings in order to acquire a proper relationship to individual fellow-men and to the community. These precious things are conveyed to the younger generation through personal contact with those who teach, not—or at least not in the main—through textbooks. It is this that primarily constitutes and preserves culture. This is what I have in mind when I recommend the "humanities" as important, not just dry specialized knowledge in the fields of history and philosophy. Albert Einstein


+ 305 If I would be a young man again and had to decide how to make my living, I would not try to become a scientist or scholar or teacher. I would rather choose to be a plumber or a peddler in the hope to find that modest degree of independence still available under present circumstances. Albert Einstein


+ 459 The theory of relativity is a beautiful example of the basic character of the modern development of theory. That is to say, the hypotheses from which one starts become ever more abstract and more remote from experience. But in return one comes closer to the preeminent goal of science, that of encompassing a maximum of empirical contents through logical deduction with a minimum of hypotheses or axioms. The intellectual path from the axioms to the empirical contents or to the testable consequences becomes, thereby, ever longer and more subtle. The theoretician is forced, ever more, to allow himself to be directed by purely mathematical, formal points of view in the search for theories, because the physical experience of the experimenter is not capable of leading us up to the regions of the highest abstraction. Tentative deduction takes the place of the predominantly inductive methods appropriate to the youthful state of science. Such a theoretical structure must be quite thoroughly elaborated in order for it to lead to consequences that can be compared with experience. It is certainly the case that here, as well, the empirical fact is the all-powerful judge. But its judgment can be handed down only on the basis of great and difficult intellectual effort that first bridges the wide space between the axioms and the testable consequences. The theorist must accomplish this Herculean task with the clear understanding that this effort may only be destined to prepare the way for a death sentence for his theory. One should not reproach the theorist who undertakes such a task by calling him a fantast; instead, one must allow him his fantasizing, since for him there is no other way to his goal whatsoever. Indeed, it is no planless fantasizing, but rather a search for the logically simplest possibilities and their consequences. Albert Einstein


+ 407 The work on satisfactory formulation of technical patents was a true blessing for me. It compelled me to be many-sided in thought, and also offered important stimulation for thought about physics. Following a practical profession is a blessing for people of my type. Because the academic career puts a young person in a sort of compulsory situation to produce scientific papers in impressive quantity, a temptation to superficiality arises that only strong characters are able to resist. Albert Einstein


+ 333 You see, when a blind beetle crawls over the surface of a globe he doesn't notice that the track he has covered is curved. I was lucky enough to have spotted it. Albert Einstein


+ 344 Schopenhauer's saying, that "a man can do as he will, but not will as he will," has been an inspiration to me since my youth up, and a continual consolation and unfailing well-spring of patience in the face of the hardships of life... Albert Einstein


+ 411 In human freedom in the philosophical sense I am definitely a disbeliever. Everybody acts not only under external compulsion but also in accordance with inner necessity. Schopenhauer's saying, that "a man can do as he will, but not will as he will," has been an inspiration to me since my youth up, and a continual consolation and unfailing well-spring of patience in the face of the hardships of life, my own and others'. This feeling mercifully mitigates the sense of responsibility which so easily becomes paralyzing, and it prevents us from taking ourselves and other people too seriously; it conduces to a view of life in which humor, above all, has its due place. Albert Einstein


+ 340 In the judgment of the most competent living mathematicians, Fraulein Noether was the most significant creative mathematical genius thus far produced since the higher education of women began. In the realm of algebra, in which the most gifted mathematicians have been busy for centuries, she discovered methods which have proved of enormous importance in the development of the present-day younger generation of mathematicians. Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas. Albert Einstein, New York Times, May 1, 1935


+ 284 Ocean is an amazing solution for your soul. Sergey Letchenya


+ 380 What is the meaning of human life, or of organic life altogether? To answer this question at all implies a religion. Is there any sense then, you ask, in putting it? I answer, the man who regards his own life and that of his fellow creatures as meaningless is not merely unfortunate but almost disqualified for life. Albert Einstein


+ 458 You will hardly find one among the profounder sort of scientific minds without a peculiar religious feeling of his own. But it is different from the religion of the naive man. For the latter God is a being from whose care one hopes to benefit and whose punishment one fears; a sublimation of a feeling similar to that of a child for its father, a being to whom one stands to some extent in a personal relation, however deeply it may be tinged with awe. But the scientist is possessed by the sense of universal causation. The future, to him, is every whit as necessary and determined as the past. There is nothing divine about morality, it is a purely human affair. His religious feeling takes the form of a rapturous amazement at the harmony of natural law, which reveals an intelligence of such superiority that, compared with it, all the systematic thinking and acting of human beings is an utterly insignificant reflection. This feeling is the guiding principle of his life and work, in so far as he succeeds in keeping himself from the shackles of selfish desire. It is beyond question closely akin to that which has possessed the religious geniuses of all ages. Albert Einstein


+ 243 I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity. Albert Einstein


+ 349 It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it. Albert Einstein


+ 390 In my opinion, condemning the Zionist movement as "nationalistic" is unjustified. Consider the path by which Herzl came to his mission. Initially he had been completely cosmopolitan. But during the Dreyfus trial in Paris he suddenly realized with great clarity how precarious was the situation of the Jews in the western world. And courageously he drew the conclusion that we are discriminated against or murdered not because we are Germans, Frenchmen, Americans, etc. of the "Jewish faith" but simply because we are Jews. Thus already our precarious situation forces us to stand together irrespective of our citizenship. Zionism gave the German Jews no great protection against annihilation. But it did give the survivors the inner strength to endure the debacle with dignity and without losing their healthy self respect. Keep in mind that perhaps a similar fate could be lying in wait for your children. Albert Einstein


+ 355 I am the one to whom you wrote in care of the Belgian Academy... Read no newspapers, try to find a few friends who think as you do, read the wonderful writers of earlier times, Kant, Goethe, Lessing, and the classics of other lands, and enjoy the natural beauties of Munich's surroundings. Make believe all the time that you are living, so to speak, on Mars among alien creatures and blot out any deeper interest in the actions of those creatures. Make friends with a few animals. Then you will become a cheerful man once more and nothing will be able to trouble you. Albert Einstein


+ 413 Many people think that the progress of the human race is based on experiences of an empirical, critical nature, but I say that true knowledge is to be had only through a philosophy of deduction. For it is intuition that improves the world, not just following a trodden path of thought. Intuition makes us look at unrelated facts and then think about them until they can all be brought under one law. To look for related facts means holding onto what one has instead of searching for new facts. Intuition is the father of new knowledge, while empiricism is nothing but an accumulation of old knowledge. Intuition, not intellect, is the 'open sesame' of yourself. Albert Einstein


+ 342 What do you think of Spinoza? For me he is the ideal example of the cosmic man. He worked as an obscure diamond cutter, disdaining fame and a place at the table of the great. He tells us the importance of understanding our emotions and suggests what causes them. Man will never be free until he is able to direct his emotions to think clearly. Only then can he control his environment and preserve his energy for creative work. Albert Einstein


+ 398 I cannot conceive of anything after my physical death—perhaps it will end it all. The knowledge that I am now on this earth and a mysterious part of eternity is enough for me. My death will be an easy one, too, for since early youth I have always detached myself from family, friends, and surroundings. And should I live on, I have no fear of the next life. Whatever good I did helped to free me from myself. What a miserable creature man would be if he were good not for the sake of being good, but because religion told him that he would get a reward after this life, and that if he weren't good he'd be punished. Albert Einstein


+ 249 My God may not be your idea of God, but one thing I know of my God — he makes me a humanitarian. I am a proud Jew because we gave the world the Bible and the story of Joseph. Albert Einstein


+ 369 About God, I cannot accept any concept based on the authority of the Church. As long as I can remember, I have resented mass indoctrination. I do not believe in the fear of life, in the fear of death, in blind faith. I cannot prove to you that there is no personal God, but if I were to speak of him, I would be a liar. I do not believe in the God of theology who rewards good and punishes evil. My God created laws that take care of that. His universe is not ruled by wishful thinking, but by immutable laws. Albert Einstein


+ 336 You must warn people not to make the intellect their God. The intellect knows methods but it seldom knows values, and they come from feeling. If one doesn't play a part in the creative whole, he is not worth being called human. He has betrayed his true purpose. Albert Einstein


+ 337 Be a loner. That gives you time to wonder, to search for the truth. Have holy curiosity. Make your life worth living. Albert Einstein

We are nothing without you
We are as cold as a stone.

The brook of life rushes to
have its way.
The number of friends is getting less.
But what has been you will
remember as the best.

+ 271 There’s much deception and lie.
Only with God
You can save your heart
And pass it by.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 273 The best friend can betray
You can’t alone trot your way.
Your mum will do her best
Your native land is your
dearest nest.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 268 You can’t embrace all
the world.
It is a useless wish.
Better mow the meadow
Gather the crops
Or catch some fish.
Alexander Alpeev

“Good bye”.

+ 279 Our destiny have been predicted
Don’t lie to yourself.
Nor prayers, nor requests
Will give us desired rest
Alexander Alpeev


+ 265 Don’t sow seeds of hatred
They won’t grow.
You will have no mercy as well.
Don’t do so.
Alexander Alpeev

Don’t regret about the years
that passed.
Expect that one day, perhaps,
to-morrow,
The better days will last.
Alexander Alpeev

Its sense is deep.
Wait! Your time will come
All difficulties you will overcome.

Even a hint at it makes me sad.
Such thoughts have no right to live
If you think so stop and pleasure

You are not alone.
A coming day will bring you hope.
Alexander Alpeev

To eat Adam’s fruit.

Firm is the sky.
It gives you its utmost
When you for this saint fortress die.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 273 Stop drinking wine
You ruin your soul.
Give up this habit.
Do as you’ve been told.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 297 When you see a man,
who is as black as a storm-cloud
Carefully look around.
Know! He ruins people’s souls.
He is deaf to anyone’s calls.
Alexander Alpeev

You had before.

And will be happy under the stars.

My heart is longing for you
I feel like a child.
Only after drinking your water it
will get mild.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 265 I can’t forget the years I was young.
Only then I had a real fun.
Every day I see them again.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 276 In the dreams of my heart
I see a spring.
Saint water, give me strength.
I don’t want you and me to be apart.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 271 I see a truthful dream.
It tells me that all are alive.
That they are young and strong.
I want this dream to go on and on.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 274 I am walking along
Life’s paths full of thorn.
One day I gallop, the other I creep.
Could you do the same when
the gaps are deep?
Alexander Alpeev


+ 279 Don’t copy anyone
It is a useless affair.
Live your own life
I wish it were your only care.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 241 A truth is not easy to get.
It makes you feel depressed
and sad A man can’t understand the
universe He can’t get the knack of it.
Better to submit And live on.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 284 Pour me some poison.
There’s no relief after it
So mortal is your treat.

One day you will pass away
Without saying good bye.
A soul is afraid to go to the hell.
Only in paradise
It will be feeling well.

Idols are not good for this world.
Your life is your only fate.
Hurry! Or it will be too late.

This trial is very long.
Your body is not ready yet To serve God.
It can’t about pleasures forget.

The sense of life I find in it.
Your soul will be filled by love
To our God, who is above.

Listen to your inner voce.
Open your soul to God.
Don’t be hauty,
Don’t make much noise.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 313 Leave you passion alone.
It is not true love.
Give your heart to God.
It is the only way, is it not?
Alexander Alpeev


+ 299 Joy is descending from the sky.
This present is not for all.
If devil graws you inside
You will get no help
Even from the bell’s toll.

Heartless, sick tribe.
All bridges were burnt
Nothing will help you Even a bribe.

But with your eyes
You can’t see a soul.
A soul sings about love.
Let love be eternal
Here happiness lies.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 289 Who can escape from love?
No one I know.
Captivity of love is getting stronger
Wherever you go.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 350 You don’t love me, why.
You ruin my sacred heart.
But God will give me another life
With Him my happiness will start.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 264 My grandson - it’s me.
My hope and my joy,
A great gift of God
I want you to be a happy boy.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 523 Great love comes to me, it is light.
You are wanted and loved, I don’t lie.
Great love touches my feelings at night.
It comes to me through the Earth and the sky.
Alexander Alpeev


+ 408 Eventually there was a split between my parents about me. My mother obviously knew what was going on with me and the girls my friends lined up. She never came out and said anything directly, but she let me know she was concerned. Things were different between me and my father. He assumed that when I was eighteen, I would just go into the Army and they would straighten me out. He accepted some of the things my mother condemned. He felt it was perfectly all right to make out with all the girls I could. In fact, he was proud I was dating the fast girls. He bragged about them to his friends. "Jesus Christ, you should see some of the women my son's coming up with." He was showing off, of course. But still, our whole relationship had changed because I'd established myself by winning a few trophies and now had some girls. He was particularly excited about the girls. And he liked the idea that I didn't get involved. "That's right, Arnold," he'd say, as though he'd had endless experience, "never be fooled by them." That continued to be an avenue of communication between us for a couple of years. In fact, the few nights I took girls home when I was on leave from the Army, my father was always very pleasant and would bring out a bottle of wine and a couple of glasses. Arnold Schwarzenegger


+ 340 Just remember, you can't climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets. Arnold Schwarzenegger


+ 282 I play the Terminator, but you guys are the true terminators. Arnold Schwarzenegger


+ 390 My hair was pulled. I was hit with belts. So was the kid next door, and so was the kid next door. It was just the way it was. Many of the children I've seen were broken by their parents, which was the German-Austrian mentality. Break the will. They didn't want to create an individual.... It was all about conforming. I was one who did not conform and whose will could not be broken. Therefore I became a rebel. Every time I got hit, and every time someone said, 'You can't do this,' I said, 'This is not going to be for much longer, because I'm going to move out of here... of course, I had no plan how. Arnold Schwarzenegger


+ 324 In sports, you learn competition means go after it, win it. And not to let anything else interfere. It's something you learn, and it sticks with you. I consider myself an expert in looking into a particular idea or goal and then going after it without anything else in mind... It's always the same kind of thing. You pick a goal, and then you just go after it, accomplish it, and get satisfaction out of that. Arnold Schwarzenegger


+ 292 Why not? With my way of thinking, you always shoot for the top. Arnold Schwarzenegger


+ 214 If you wake up at a different time, in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?


+ 306 You wake up at SeaTac, SFO, LAX. You wake up at O'Hare, Dallas-Fort Worth, BWI. Pacific, mountain, central. Lose an hour, gain an hour. This is your life, and it's ending one minute at a time.


+ 316 The joke is even the surrendering is not in your control. Why? Because so long as there is an individual who says "I surrender" there is a surrenderer, an individual ego... What I'm saying is that even the surrendering is not in [your] hands. Ramesh Balsekar


+ 341 Truth or Reality is itself a concept. When you are in the truth or in deep sleep, which is only a pale reflection of the real, in that state of deep sleep is the Truth. And in that Truth there is no experience. In the waking state, the state of deep sleep is a concept. In deep sleep it is the Truth. But the moment you think of Reality, the moment you think Subject, the moment you think of the Absolute, the moment you think of the Truth, it is a concept. It is only when the thinking totally stops that Truth exists. Ramesh Balsekar


+ 325 When we talk of time and space, we say infinite space and eternal time. It is still a mental concept of total space and total time. But the mind cannot conceive of that state prior to the arising of the space-time. The moment you think of Reality, the reality is a concept. You are the Reality of which the split-mind makes a concept. You are the Reality, but not as the "me". Ramesh Balsekar


+ 288 It's very simple. Don't think about what you have heard here. Just don't think about what you think you've understood. And then that understanding will have a chance to flower. But the more you think about what you have understood, the more it's wasted. Ramesh Balsekar


+ 417 I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. Jesus

+ 341 The Kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living Father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty. Jesus


+ 271 You read the face of the sky and of the earth, but you have not recognized the one who is before you, and you do not know how to read this moment. Jesus

+ 312 Jesus Christ : Wanted — For Sedition, Criminal Anarchy — Vagrancy, and Conspiring to Overthrow the Established Government. ~ Art Young


+ 338 The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. The unnameable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. Free from desire, you realize the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding. Laozi


+ 361 Unfortunately, no one can be told what The Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.

+ 329 Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. Lao Tzu


+ 370 Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is. Jim Morrison

+ 324 Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.

+ 240 The words you speak become the house you live in. Hafiz


+ 313 A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you. Elbert Hubbard


+ 367 I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together. Marilyn Monroe


+ 287 To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. Ralph Waldo Emerson


+ 368 Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. Apple Inc.


+ 350 Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. H. Jackson Brown Jr., P.S. I Love You


+ 292 It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for what you are not. Andre Gide, Autumn Leaves


+ 583 Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life. Bob Marley


+ 284 There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. Albert Einstein

+ 263 A day without sunshine is like, you know, night. Steve Martin


+ 437 You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She's not perfect—you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break—her heart. So don't hurt her, don't change her, don't analyze and don't expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she's not there. Bob Marley


+ 273 Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving. Albert Einstein


+ 303 Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book. John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

+ 313 Remember, we're madly in love, so it's all right to kiss me anytime you feel like it. Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games


+ 261 If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking. Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood


+ 349 You don’t forget the face of the person who was your last hope. Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games


+ 298 You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world...but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. John Green, The Fault in Our Stars


+ 251 It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. E.E. Cummings

+ 239 Act enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic. Dale Carnegie

+ 248 For better or worse, you must play your own instrument in the orchestra of life. Dale Carnegie


+ 287 Do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it… that is the quickest and surest way ever yet discovered to conquer fear. Dale Carnegie

+ 371 Don’t let people walk all over you. Sometimes when your too nice of a person and you always give and give, you might not know if you’re are being taken advantaged of, or if you’re being used. A kind person with a soft heart is always there for people and seldom speak out for themselves. Learn how to say no. Your true friendships will be revealed.

Don’t let anyone, including yourself, convince you otherwise.

+ 329 True love knows no distance, beauty face and body size, it’s all about what you feel inside your heart and accept someone for who they are.


+ 435 The hardest lesson you will ever learn will be to love yourself. But you can do it. There will always be days when you hate yourself, days when you wish you had never been born. But you are beautiful, and if Shakespeare had met you, you would’ve inspired his 18th sonnet, and if Monet had known you, he would’ve given up painting water lilies and chosen to paint you instead. I know it’s hard to love yourself, but sometimes it’s okay to be a little selfish with your love..Live for the life you always wanted but were too scared to pursue. Live for you. Live for every person who has ever loved you. Live for the fire that burns in your soul, that tells you: keep going, you’re almost there, just a little farther. M.K.

+ 240 Sometimes you just have to do what's best for you.


+ 246 If you don't follow your heart, you might spend the rest of your life wishing you had. Brigitte Nicole


+ 245 Don't fear the enemy that attacks you but the fake friend that hugs you.


+ 261 The best feeling is when someone appreciates everything about you that someone else took for granted.


+ 285 Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.


+ 241 You should never have to think twice about who your real friends are.

+ 247 Never speak bad about yourself.


+ 246 Never give up on your dreams.

Spend more time with those who make you smile and less time with those who you constantly feel pressured to impress. Marc Chernoff


+ 373 If you love someone show them, don't tell them. If you stop loving someone tell them, don't show them.

In the first week I picked up a tolerable working knowledge of the language and the next seven years convinced me gradually but thoroughly that I would never know it really well, let alone perfectly. This is sad. My only consolation being that nobody speaks English perfectly.

Remember that those five hundred words an average Englishman uses are far from being the whole vocabulary of the language. You may learn another five hundred and another five thousand and yet another fifty thousand and still you may come across a further fifty thousand you have never heard of before, and nobody else either. If you live here long enough you will find out to your greatest amazement that the adjective nice is not the only adjective the language possesses, in spite of the fact that in the first three years you do not need to learn or use any other adjectives. You can say that the weather is nice, a restaurant is nice, Mr Soandso is nice, Mrs Soandso's clothes are nice, you had a nice time, and all this will be very nice. Then you have to decide on your accent. You will have your foreign accent all right, but many people like to mix it with something else. I knew a Polish Jew who had a strong Yiddish-Irish accent. People found it fascinating though slightly exaggerated. The easiest way to give the impression of having a good accent or no foreign accent at all is to hold an unlit pipe in your mouth, to mutter between your teeth and finish all your sentences with the question: 'isn't it?' People will not understand much, but they are accustomed to that and they will get a most excellent impression.

I have known quite a number of foreigners who tried hard to acquire an Oxford accent. The advantage of this is that you give the idea of being permanently in the company of Oxford dons and lecturers on medieval numismatics; the disadvantage is that the permanent singing is rather a strain on your throat and that it is a type of affection that even many English people find it hard to keep up incessantly. You may fall out of it, speak naturally, and then where are you? The Mayfair accent can be highly recommended, too. The advantages of Mayfair English are that it unites the affected air of the Oxford accent with the uncultured flavour of a half-educated professional hotel-dancer.

The most successful attempts, however, to put on a highly cultured air have been made on the polysyllabic lines. Many foreigners who have learnt Latin and Greek in school discover with amazement and satisfaction that the English language has absorbed a huge amount of ancient Latin and Greek expressions, and they realize that
a) it is much easier to learn these expressions than the much simpler English words;
b) that these words as a rule are interminably long and make a simply superb impression when talking to the greengrocer, the porter and the insurance agent. Imagine, for instance, that the porter of the block of flats where you live remarks sharply that you must not put your dustbin out in front of your door before 7.30 a.m. Should you answer 'Please don't bully me,' a loud and tiresome argument may follow, and certainly the porter will be proved right, because you are sure to find a dause in your contract (small print, of last page) that the porter is always right and you owe absolute allegiance and unconditional obedience to him. Should you answer, however, with these words: 1 repudiate your petulant expostulations,' the argument will be closed at once, the porter will be proud of having such a highly cultured man in the block, and from that day onwards you may, if you please, get up at four o'clock in the morning and hang your dustbin out of the window. But even in Curzon Street society, if you say, for instance, that you are a tough guy they will consider you a vulgar, irritating and objectionable person. Should you declare, however, that you are an inquisitorial and peremptory homo sapiens, they will have no idea what you mean, but they will feel in their bones that you must be something wonderful. When you know all the long words it is advisable to start learning some of the short ones, too. You should be careful when using these endless words. An acquaintance of mine once was fortunate enough to discover the most impressive word notalgia for back-ache. Mistakenly, however, he declared in a large company: 'I have such a nostalgia.' 'Oh, you want to go home to Nizhne-Novgorod?' asked his most sympathetic hostess. 'Not at all,' he answered. 'I just cannot sit down.' . Finally, there are two important points to remember:
1. Do not forget that it is much easier to write in English than to speak English, because you can write without a foreign accent.
2. In a bus and in other public places it is more advisable to speak softly in good German than to shout in abominable English.
Anyway, this whole language business is not at all easy. After spending eight years in this country, the other day I was told by a very kind lady: 'But why do you complain? You really speak a most excellent accent without the slightest English.'

+ 346 When I was in college, my school newspaper accepted an ad from a Holocaust revisionist organization.

+ 290 You know, in 1975 I couldn't get a job in New York City because I was American. The kitchens were predominantly run by French, Swiss, German, and basically I got laughed at. I had education, I had experience, but got laughed at because I was American. Emeril Lagasse


+ 219 I live in a Swiss village so small, if you sneeze everyone knows. Geraldine Chaplin


+ 275 Life-writing calls for any number of dubious gifts: A touch of O.C.D., a lack of imagination, a large desk, neutrality of Swiss proportions, tactlessness, a high tolerance for archival dust. Most of all it calls for an act of displacement. 'To find your subject, you must in some sense lose yourself along the way,' is Richard Holmes's version. Stacy Schiff


+ 223 A witticism in an airport security line is like a Swiss tap - turn it on, and you instantly find yourself in hot water. Shashi Tharoor

+ 287 Note to self: finding a cool quote and writing it in your journal is not a substitute for Getting. It. Done. Betsy Canas Garmon


+ 398 Well-matured and well-disciplined talent is always sure of a market, provided it exerts itself; but it must not cower at home and expect to be sought for. There is a good deal of cant, too, in the whining about the success of forward and impudent men, while men of retiring worth are passed over with neglect. But it happens often that those forward men have that valuable quality of promptness and activity, without which worth is a mere inoperative property. A barking dog is often more useful than a sleeping lion. Endeavor to make your talents convertible to ready use, prompt for the occasion, and adapted to the ordinary purposes of life; cultivate strength rather than gracefulness; in our country it is the useful, not the ornamental, that is in demand. Washington Irving, letter to Pierre Paris Irving (nephew), 1824 December 7th


+ 254 Remember, people will judge you by your actions, not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold — but so does a hard-boiled egg.

+ 339 We, like you, are people who want to build a home, to plant a tree, to love, live side by side with you in dignity, in empathy, as human beings, as free men. We are today giving peace a chance and again saying to you in a clear voice: Enough. Yitzhak Rabin


+ 315 Hollywood is a place where they'll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty cents. Marilyn Monroe


+ 257 Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned. Buddha


+ 359 You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection. Buddha


+ 250 The mind is everything. What you think you become. Buddha


+ 273 It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell. Buddha


+ 207 Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind. Buddha


+ 244 However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them? Buddha


+ 206 You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger. Buddha


+ 219 Work out your own salvation. Do not depend on others. Buddha


+ 280 You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection. Buddha


+ 267 One nice thing about putting the thing away for a couple of months before looking at it is that you start appreciate your own wit. Of course, this can be carried too far. But it's kind of cool when you crack up a piece of writing, and then realize you wrote it. I recommend this feeling. Steven Brust


+ 230 Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly


+ 262 Writing is a cop-out. An excuse to live perpetually in fantasy land, where you can create, direct and watch the products of your own head. Very selfish. Monica Dickens

+ 277 Forget all the rules. Forget about being published. Write for yourself and celebrate writing. Melinda Haynes


+ 267 Close the door. Write with no one looking over your shoulder. Don't try to figure out what other people want to hear from you; figure out what you have to say. It's the one and only thing you have to offer. Barbara Kingsolver


+ 360 Are we, who want to create, in some way specially talented people? Or has everybody else simply given up, either by preassures of modesty or laziness, and closed their ears from their inner need to create, until that need has died, forgotten and abandoned? When you look at children, you start to think the latter. I still haven't met a child who doesn't love - or who at least hasn't loved - drawing, writing or some other creative activity. Natalia Laurila


+ 259 The only reason for being a professional writer is that you just can't help it. Leo Rosten


+ 307 Reading usually precedes writing and the impulse to write is almost always fired by reading. Reading, the love of reading, is what makes you dream of becoming a writer. Susan Sontag


+ 246 Write something to suit yourself and many people will like it; write something to suit everybody and scarcely anyone will care for it. Jesse Stuart


+ 245 I learned that you should feel when writing, not like Lord Byron on a mountain top, but like a child stringing beads in kindergarten - happy, absorbed and quietly putting one bead on after another. Brenda Ueland


+ 232 If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud. Emile Zola


+ 211 Quantity produces quality. If you only write a few things, you're doomed. Ray Bradbury


+ 312 I don't think it is possible to give tips for finding one's voice; it's one of those things for which there aren't really any tricks or shortcuts, or even any advice that necessarily translates from writer to writer. All I can tell you is to write as much as possible. Poppy Z. Brite


+ 288 Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way. E. L. Doctorow


+ 318 People on the outside think there's something magical about writing, that you go up in the attic at midnight and cast the bones and come down in the morning with a story, but it isn't like that. You sit in back of the typewriter and you work, and that's all there is to it. Harlan Ellison


+ 283 You can't say, I won't write today because that excuse will extend into several days, then several months, then… you are not a writer anymore, just someone who dreams about being a writer. Dorothy C. Fontana


+ 251 Writing is physical work. It's sweaty work. You just can't will yourself to become a good writer. You really have to work at it. Will Haygood


+ 240 The way you define yourself as a writer is that you write every time you have a free minute. If you didn't behave that way you would never do anything. John Irving


+ 285 Sometimes you have to go on when you don't feel like it, and sometimes you're doing good work when it feels like all you're managing is to shovel shit from a sitting position. Stephen King


+ 263 Writing is a fairly lonely business unless you invite people in to watch you do it, which is often distracting and then have to ask them to leave. Marc Lawrence


+ 277 Hardly anybody ever writes anything nice about introverts. Extroverts rule. This is rather odd when you realise that about nineteen writers out of twenty are introverts. We are been taught to be ashamed of not being 'outgoing'. But a writer's job is ingoing. Ursula K. LeGuin


+ 222 You may be able to take a break from writing, but you won't be able to take a break from being a writer. Stephen Leigh


+ 219 Writing energy is like anything else. The more you put in, the more you get out. Richard Reeves


+ 231 The only way to avoid being miserable is not to have enough leisure to wonder whether you are happy or not. George Bernard Shaw


+ 286 Either marry your work – take it seriously and do it every day – or date it – write only when you feel like it – but know which you are doing and the repercussions of both.


+ 342 I got to thinking about the point in every freelancer's life where he has to decide whether he wants to A, have a social life, and do art in his spare time, or B, do art, and have a social life in his spare time. It has always seemed to me that if you have any hope of making a living as an artist – writer, musician, whatever – you absolutely must learn to tell people to leave you alone, and to mean it, and to eject them from your life if they don't respect that. This is necessary not because your job is more important than anyone else's – it isn't – but because a great many people will think of you as not having a job. 'Oh, how wonderful – you can work whenever you want to!' Well, yes, to a point, but generally 'whenever you want to' had better be most of the time, or else you won't have a roof over your head. Poppy Z. Brite


+ 244 Writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you earn no money. Jules Renard

+ 292 Authors who never give you something to disagree with never give you anything to think about. Michael LaRocca


+ 269 Better keep yourself clean and bright; you are the window through which you must see the world. George Bernard Shaw


+ 317 If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put foundations under them. Henry David Thoreau


+ 268 You cannot depend on your eyes when your imagination is out of focus. Mark Twain


+ 287 Detail makes the difference between boring and terrific writing. It’s the difference between a pencil sketch and a lush oil painting. As a writer, words are your paint. Use all the colors. Rhys Alexander


+ 220 Writing is a lot easier if you have something to say Sholem Asch


+ 256 I take the view, and always have, that if you cannot say what you are going to say in twenty minutes you ought to go away and write a book about it. Lord Brabazon


+ 291 If you have other things in your life - family, friends, good productive day work - these can interact with your writing and the sum will be all the richer. David Brin


+ 260 Young writers shouldn't be afraid of striving to emulate their favorites. It's a good way to learn, as long as you move on from it and don't publish too many of the results. Poppy Z. Brite


+ 199 Don't explain why it works; explain how you use it. Steven Brust


+ 250 It only takes one person to change your life – you. Ruth Casey


+ 256 Write your story as it needs to be written. Write it honestly, and tell it as best you can. I'm not sure that there are any other rules. Not ones that matter. Neil Gaiman


+ 257 You can take for granted that people know more or less what a street, a shop, a beach, a sky, an oak tree look like. Tell them what makes this one different. Neil Gaiman


+ 259 All fiction is a process of imagining: whatever you write, in whatever genre or medium, your task is to make things up convincingly and interestingly and new. Neil Gaiman


+ 257 Writing a novel is like heading out over the open sea in a small boat. It helps, if you have a plan and a course laid out. John Gardner


+ 272 You must learn to overcome your very natural and appropriate revulsion for your own work. William Gibson


+ 210 If you read good books, when you write, good books will come out of you. Natalie Goldberg


+ 280 My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others, and that's nice, too, but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success. Helen Hayes


+ 285 They're fancy talkers about themselves, writers. If I had to give young writers advice, I would say don't listen to writers talk about writing or themselves. Lillian Hellman


+ 201 You have to have a lot of patience to learn patience. Stanislaw Jerzy Lec


+ 241 In order for you to be yourself, you have to be somebody first. Stanislaw Jerzy Lec


+ 245 Before you use a fancy word, make room for it. Joseph Joubert


+ 233 Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the face. Helen Keller


+ 311 It's hard for me to believe that people who read very little - or not at all in some cases - should presume to write and expect people to like what they have written. Can I be blunt on this subject? If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time - or the tools - to write. Simple as that. Stephen King


+ 240 If you don't have the time to read, you don't have the time or the tools to write. Stephen King


+ 301 One of the really bad things you can do to your writing is to dress up the vocabulary, looking for long words because you're maybe a little bit ashamed of your short ones. Stephen King


+ 263 My most important piece of advice to all you would-be writers: when you write, try to leave out all the parts readers skip. Elmore Leonard


+ 266 Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say 'infinitely' when you mean 'very'. Otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. C. S. Lewis


+ 243 If you think you're boring your audience, go slower not faster. Gustav Mahler


+ 285 For anyone who is: just keep writing. Keep reading. If you are meant to be a writer, a storyteller, it’ll work itself out. You just keep feeding it your energy, and giving it that crucial chance to work itself out. By reading and writing. Robin McKinley


+ 219 To produce a mighty book, you must choose a mighty theme. Herman Melville


+ 259 We writers have this saying 'Kill your darlings'... but I suppose you family men don't agree with it. Mike Pohjola


+ 254 You only pass through this life once, you don't come back for an encore. Elvis Presley


+ 372 Most beginning writers - and I was the same - are like chefs trying to cook great dishes that they've never tasted themselves. How can you make a great - or even an adequate - bouillabaisse if you've never had any? If you don't really understand why people read mysteries - or romances or literary novels or thrillers or whatever - then there's no way in the world you're going to write one that anyone wants to publish. This is the meaning of the well-known expression "Write what you know." Daniel Quinn


+ 208 Do what you can, with what you have, where you are. Theodore Roosevelt


+ 233 Say all you have to say in the fewest possible words, or your reader will be sure to skip them; and in the plainest possible words or he will certainly misunderstand them. John Ruskin


+ 179 If you don't know it, don't write it. Darrell Schweitzer


+ 247 There are no rules in writing. There are useful principles. Throw them away when they're not useful. But always know what you're throwing away. Will Shetterly


+ 311 Moving around is good for creativity: the next line of dialogue that you desperately need may well be waiting in the back of the refrigerator or half a mile along your favorite walk. Will Shetterly


+ 167 You are what you read. Esko Valtaoja


+ 244 If you really want to hurt your parents and you don't have nerve enough to be homosexual, the least you can do is go into the arts. Kurt Vonnegut


+ 249 If you think that something small cannot make a difference, try going to sleep with a mosquito in the room.


+ 278 Don't worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you'll have to ram them down people's throats. Howard Aiken


+ 317 Fitzgerald never got rid of anything; the ghosts of his adolescence, the failures of his youth, the doubts of his maturity plagued him to the end. He was supremely a part of the world he described, so much a part that he made himself its king and then, when he saw it begin to crumble, he crumbled with it and led it to death. John Aldridge


+ 217 Invent your own mythology or be slave to another man’s. William Blake


+ 207 Everything that doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. And later on you can use it in some story. Tapani Bagge


+ 265 If you haven't got an idea, start a story anyway. You can always throw it away, and maybe by the time you get to the fourth page you will have an idea, and you'll only have to throw away the first three pages. William Campbell Gault


+ 250 You need more than a beginning if you're going to start a book. If all you have is a beginning, then once you've written that beginning, you have nowhere to go. Neil Gaiman

+ 249 Every bush can burn if you fire it with your imagination. Stanislaw Jerzy Lec


+ 290 I hated school. I don't trust anybody who looks back on the years from 14 to 18 with any enjoyment. If you liked being a teenager, there's something really wrong with you. Stephen King


+ 274 It is crazy even to ask what creativity is. It would be just as useful to interview a caraway plant in your garden and ask: How did you decided to be a spice? Eeva Kilpi


+ 280 If you’re going to be a writer, the first essential is just to write. Do not wait for an idea. Start writing something and the ideas will come. You have to turn the faucet on before the water starts to flow. Louis L’Amour


+ 256 If you can't annoy somebody, there's little point in writing. Kingsley Amis


+ 259 Find the key emotion; this may be all you need know to find your short story. F. Scott Fitzgerald


+ 231 It's better to write about things you feel than about things you know about. L P. Hartley


+ 217 There is no agony like bearing an untold story inside you. Z.N. Hurston


+ 255 If you would write emotionally, be first unemotional. If you would move your readers to tears, do not let them see you cry. James J. Kilpatrick


+ 282 If you can tell stories, create characters, devise incidents, and have sincerity and passion, it doesn't matter a damn how you write. Somerset Maugham


+ 310 If you do not have an alert and curious interest in character and dramatic situation, if you have no visual imagination and are unable to distinguish between honest emotional reactions and sentimental approaches to life, you will never write a competent short story. Edward J. O'Brien


+ 239 Writing is communication, not self-expression. Nobody in this world wants to read your diary except your mother. Richard Peck


+ 253 Short stories can be rather stark and bare unless you put in the right details. Details make stories human, and the more human a story can be, the better. V. S. Pritchett


+ 269 Everything changes when you change. Jim Rohn


+ 312 In a thousand words I can have the Lord's Prayer, the 23rd Psalm, the Hippocratic Oath, a sonnet by Shakespeare, the Preamble to the Constitution, Lincoln's Gettysburg Address and almost all of the Boy Scout Oath. Now exactly what picture were you planning to trade for all that? Roy H. Williams


+ 324 If the sex scene doesn't make you want to do it - whatever it is they're doing - it hasn't been written right. Sloan Wilson


+ 286 Writing for adults, you have to keep reminding them of what is going on. The poor things have given up using their brains when they read. Children you only need to tell things to once. Diana Wynne Jones


+ 267 I think the first duty of all art, including fiction of any kind, is to entertain. That is to say, to hold interest. No matter how worthy the message of something, if it's dull, you're just not communicating. Poul Anderson


+ 254 Have something to say, and say it as clearly as you can. That is the only secret. Matthew Arnold


+ 311 Your stuff starts out being just for you… but then it goes out. Once you know what the story is and get it right - as right as you can, anyway - it belongs to anyone who wants to read it. Or criticize it. Stephen King


+ 258 Readers, after all, are making the world with you. You give them the materials, but it's the readers who build that world in their own minds. Ursula Le Guin


+ 300 Write what you want to read. The person you know best in this world is you. Listen to yourself. If you are excited by what you are writing, you have a much better chance of putting that excitement over to a reader. Robin McKinley


+ 313 Tell the readers a story! Because without a story, you are merely using words to prove you can string them together in logical sentences. Anne McCaffrey


+ 266 Anything you have to acquire a taste for was not meant to be eaten. Eddie Murphy


+ 291 The reader has certain rights. He bought your story. Think of this as an implicit contract. He's entitled to be entertained, instructed, amused; maybe all three. If he quits in the middle, or puts the book down feeling his time has been wasted, you're in violation. Larry Niven


+ 278 Be anything you want to be, but don't be dull. Frank Robinson


+ 299 Writing gives you the illusion of control, and then you realize it's just an illusion, that people are going to bring their own stuff into it. David Sedaris


+ 341 The main question to a novel is - did it amuse? Were you surprised at dinner coming so soon? Did you mistake eleven for ten? Were you too late to dress? And did you sit up beyond the usual hour? If a novel produces these effects, it is good; if it does not – story, language, love, scandal itself cannot save it. It is only meant to please; and it must do that or it does nothing. Sydney Smith


+ 273 If you try to please audiences, uncritically accepting their tastes, it can only mean that you have no respect for them: that you simply want to collect their money. Andrei Tarkovsky


+ 297 Thank your readers and the critics who praise you, and then ignore them. Write for the most intelligent, wittiest, wisest audience in the universe: Write to please yourself. Harlan Ellison


+ 287 Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow. Delay may give clearer light as to what is best to be done. Aaron Burr


+ 252 Do something today that your future self will thank you for.


+ 260 It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes. Douglas Adams


+ 236 You live and learn. At any rate, you live. Douglas Adams


+ 282 Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind - bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space. Douglas Adams


+ 292 Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. Anything that’s invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty- five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. Anything invented after you’re thirty-five is against the natural order of things. Douglas Adams


+ 268 Always love, even when you want to fight.


+ 243 Beware of the young doctor and the old barber. Benjamin Franklin

+ 232 When you have faults, do not fear to abandon them. Confucius, The Confucian Analects

+ 231 Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it. Mahatma Gandhi

+ 185 Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. Voltaire


+ 241 To succeed in the world it is not enough to be stupid, you must also be well-mannered. Voltaire

+ 233 The world owes you nothing.


+ 297 It's only when the tide goes out that you discover who's been swimming naked. Warren Buffett


+ 279 Most people get interested in stocks when everyone else is. The time to get interested is when no one else is. You can't buy what is popular and do well. Warren Buffett


+ 230 Price is what you pay. Value is what you get. Warren Buffett

+ 255 Time is on the side of the oppressed today, it's against the oppressor. Truth is on the side of the oppressed today, it's against the oppressor. You don't need anything else. Malcolm X, Malcolm X Speaks, 1965


+ 258 You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom. Malcolm X, Malcolm X Speaks, 1965

+ 257 With you I should love to live, with you be ready to die. Horace, Odes

+ 259 The best time to plan a book is while you're doing the dishes. Agatha Christie


+ 327 I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming that comes when you finish the life of the emotions and of personal relations; and suddenly find - at the age of fifty, say - that a whole new life has opened before you, filled with things you can think about, study, or read about...It is as if a fresh sap of ideas and thoughts was rising in you. Agatha Christie, An Autobiography, 1977


+ 286 Be thankful that you woke up alive each morning. Develop a childlike sense of wonder towards life. Focus on the beauty of every living thing. Make the most of each day. Don't take anything for granted. Don't sweat the small stuff.


+ 320 Surround yourself with happy, positive people who share your values and goals. Friends that have the same ethics as you will encourage you to achieve your dreams. They help you to feel good about yourself. They are there to lend a helping hand when needed.


+ 325 Accept others for who they are as well as where they are in life. Respect them for who they are. Touch them with a kind and generous spirit. Help when you are able, without trying to change the other person. Try to brighten the day of everyone you come into contact with.


+ 295 Keep up to date with the latest news regarding your career and hobbies. Try new and daring things that has sparked your interest – such as dancing, skiing, surfing or sky-diving.


+ 259 Don't wallow in self-pity. As soon as you face a challenge get busy finding a solution. Don't let the set backs affect your mood, instead see each new obstacle you face as an opportunity to make a positive change. Learn to trust your gut instincts – it's almost always right.


+ 338 Some statistics show that 80% of people dislike their jobs! No wonder there's so many unhappy people running around. We spend a great deal of our life working. Choose a career that you enjoy – the extra money of a job you detest isn't worth it. Make time to enjoy your hobbies and pursue special interests.


+ 339 Take the time to see the beauty around you. There's more to life than work. Take time to smell the roses, watch a sunset or sunrise with a loved one, take a walk along the seashore, hike in the woods etc. Learn to live in the present moment and cherish it. Don't live in the past or the future.


+ 313 Do not take yourself - or life to seriously. You can find humor in just about any situation. Laugh at yourself - no one's perfect. When appropriate laugh and make light of the circumstances. Naturally there are times that you should be serious as it would be improper to laugh.


+ 273 Holding a grudge will hurt no one but you. Forgive others for your own peace of mind. When you make a mistake – own up to it – learn from it – and FORGIVE yourself.


+ 329 Develop an attitude of gratitude. Count your blessings; All of them – even the things that seem trivial. Be grateful for your home, your work and most importantly your family and friends. Take the time to tell them that you are happy they are in your life.


+ 316 Always make sure your loved ones know you love them even in times of conflict. Nurture and grow your relationships with your family and friends by making the time to spend with them. Don't break your promises to them. Be supportive.


+ 290 Honesty is the best policy. Every action and decision you make should be based on honesty. Be honest with yourself and with your loved ones.


+ 409 Meditation gives your very active brain a rest. When it's rested you will have more energy and function at a higher level. Types of meditation include yoga, hypnosis, relaxation tapes, affirmations, visualization or just sitting in complete silence. Find something you enjoy and make the time to practice daily.


+ 313 Concentrate on creating your life the way you want it. Take care of you and your family. Don't get overly concerned with what other people are doing or saying. Don't get caught up with gossip or name calling. Don't judge. Everyone has a right to live their own life the way they want to – including you.


+ 284 See the glass as half full. Find the positive side of any given situation. It's there – even though it may be hard to find. Know that everything happens for a reason, even though you may never know what the reason is. Steer clear of negative thoughts. If a negative thought creeps in – replace it with a positive thought.


+ 316 Accept others for who they are. You don't put limitations on your love. Even though you may not always like the actions of your loved ones – you continue to love them.


+ 302 Never give up. Face each new challenge with the attitude that it will bring you one step closer to your goal. You will never fail, as long as you never give up. Focus on what you want, learn the required skills, make a plan to succeed and take action. We are always happiest while pursuing something of value to us.


+ 319 Accept what can not be changed. Happy people don't waste energy on circumstances beyond their control. Accept your limitations as a human being. Determine how you can take control by creating the outcome you desire – rather than waiting to respond.


+ 303 Take care of your mind, body and health. Get regular medical check ups. Eat healthy and work out. Get plenty of rest. Drink lots of water. Exercise your mind by continually energizing it with interesting and exciting challenges.


+ 304 Don't try to be someone that you're not. After all no one likes a phony. Determine who you are in the inside – your own personal likes and dislikes. Be confident in who you are. Do the best you can and don't second guess yourself.


+ 223 Be true to yourself


+ 201 Sleep more – you'll be less sensitive to negative emotions


+ 296 If you can't take the time for a vacation right now, or even a night out with friends, put something on the calendar—even if it's a month or a year down the road. Then whenever you need a boost of happiness, remind yourself about it.


+ 206 Meditate – rewire your brain for happiness


+ 347 I want to make it clear that my intention of presenting this information is to demonstrate that thoughts, intentions, prayer and other units of consciousness can directly influence our physical material world. Consciousness can be a big factor in creating change on the planet. Sending thoughts of love, healing intent, prayer, good intention, and more can have a powerful influence on what you are directing those feelings towards. Fukushima for example, if a mass amount of people send their thoughts and good intention to our waters, we can help mitigate the situation. These concepts can be used on a mass scale as one human race with one intent in their hearts, for multiple problems, as well as individual situations in our own lives. When our consciousness starts to merge into one as a collective, and we all start to see through the same eyes, we will begin to transform the world around us. I believe we are currently in this process.


+ 206 What you refuse to accept, will continue for you.


+ 238 You can not think of two things at the same time.


+ 284 If you believe something to be true,then sometime in your life you will be called upon to demonstrate that particular truth.


+ 295 Take ownership: When you think everything is someone else's fault, you will suffer a lot. When you realize that everything springs only from yourself, you will learn both peace and joy. Dalai Lama


+ 297 Cancel negative thoughts and replace them with positive thoughts. This takes practice, dedication and making a decision to see the world through the eyes of “what can go right” instead of “what can go wrong.” You'll have to catch yourself anytime you are acting out or speaking out your negativity, and immediately change your tune.


+ 341 Your thoughts do indeed create your reality. Thoughts are forms of energy that are sent ahead and eventually manifest as physical matter. The thoughts you think determine the outcome of your worldly experiences, from finances to health, relationships to environment. In fact, there is no aspect of your life that is not affected by your thoughts.


+ 287 Your imagination is your preview of life's coming attractions. Albert Einstein


+ 308 Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics. Albert Einstein/Bashar


+ 323 Most of us were taught to be sloppy thinkers. We remain frozen in worry or defeated by fear. We believe that we have become victims of our circumstances. As our thoughts remain negative or mostly unconscious, we end up attracting by default. We are stunned when we develop a horrible disease, become involved in a tragic car accident or suffer from financial failure. Without realizing it, the thoughts we have been thinking are all responsible for this. The ability to focus a thought becomes the driving force behind The Law of Attraction. Focusing on a single thought purely and clearly for a short duration of time becomes the starting point. Once you become adept at focusing your thoughts it will be easier and more efficient.


+ 378 Words do not matter much but the emotion behind the words does. The Universe works on vibration. Everything is vibration first and matter second. When you feel an affirming emotion when focusing thought you are now creating dynamic change. Pure thought with positive emotion is said to be the equivalent of 2000 action hours. The problem that many people run into is that they "pretend" to be positive on the outside but are really vibrating negativity on the inside. They might not even be aware of what it is that they are doing. The Law of Attraction is so powerful that it trumps all other laws and forces in the Universe. It never takes time off or breaks and it is always working. It supersedes science, viruses, bacteria, pathogens, parasites, natural disasters, bad luck, heredity, genetics, chance, random, poor diet, too much sugar, astrology, numerology, tea leaves and psychology. Under The Law of Attraction, there are no odds and statistics are meaningless.


+ 427 Nothing happens by mistake. The thoughts you think do indeed create your reality. There are two primary forces in the Universe — allowing and resisting. If your manifestation has not yet arrived it is only because you are resisting it. Here is how this works. Imagine driving your car with one foot on the gas pedal and one foot on the brake at the same time. Your car might be moving forward but there will be quite a bit of resistance along the way, not to mention the damage done to the brakes. Most people become frustrated and stop believing in the power of their own thoughts only because they have unconsciously placed great resistance in front of their dreams. Frustration will pull you even more into the negative thinking mode and create more mistrust in the Law of Attraction. Let's say that you desire to have more money. This is a positive thinking manifestation. You are now in a state of creation and allowing. You then might begin to worry about how complicated it will be to have all of this money. You imagine that you won't know how to manage it. Others will want some of it and you might not know how to say "No" to them. Now you are in a state of resistance. Your foot is "sharply pressing down on the brakes" in your "vibrational" world. This is why your creation has not yet arrived. When you are in a state of judgment you are also in a state of resistance. Imagine wanting an expensive new car but you have judgments about those who are able to afford expensive new cars. You are now in a state of resistance. Imagine that you want an easy life where you did not have to work so hard to get by. You keep yourself in a state of resistance when you judge others who already have an easy life where they do not have to work so hard. You can not belong to a club where you despise the current members. If you want your manifestations to arrive you must already be a vibrational match to them. Festering in a state of judgment is just pushing your desires away.


+ 306 Who are you really? An amazing lecture given by Alan Watts a British philosopher, writer, and speaker. He wrote more than 25 books and numerous articles on subjects such as personal identity, the true nature of reality, higher consciousness, meaning of life.


+ 283 While this way of perceiving the world might be difficult to digest for many, when you understand our investment in sabotage things become much clearer.

+ 279 Send me 300 francs; that sum will enable me to go to Paris. There, at least, one can cut a figure and surmount obstacles. Everything tells me I shall succeed. Will you prevent me from doing so for the want of 100 crowns? Napoleon


+ 368 My waking thoughts are all of thee. Your portrait and the remembrance of last night's delirium have robbed my senses of repose. Sweet and incomparable Josephine, what an extraordinary influence you have over my heart. Are you vexed? Do I see you sad? Are you ill at ease? My soul is broken with grief, and there is no rest for your lover. Napoleon


+ 280 What I have done up to this is nothing. I am only at the beginning of the course I must run. Do you imagine that I triumph in Italy in order to aggrandise the pack of lawyers who form the Directory, and men like Carnot and Barras? What an idea! Napoleon


+ 378 I do not care to play the part of Monk; I will not play it myself, and I do not choose that others shall do so. But those Paris lawyers who have got into the Directory understand nothing of government. They are poor creatures. I am going to see what they want to do at Rastadt; but I doubt much that we shall understand each other, or long agree together. They are jealous of me, I know, and notwithstanding all their flattery, I am not their dupe; they fear more than they love me. They were in a great hurry to make me General of the army of England, so that they might get me out of Italy, where I am the master, and am more of a sovereign than commander of an army. They will see how things go on when I am not there. I am leaving Berthier, but he is not fit for the chief command, and, I predict, will only make blunders. As for myself, my dear Miot, I may inform you, I can no longer obey; I have tasted command, and I cannot give it up. I have made up my mind, if I cannot be master I shall leave France; I do not choose to have done so much for her and then hand her over to lawyers. Napoleon


+ 311 What is a throne? — a bit of wood gilded and covered in velvet. I am the state— I alone am here the representative of the people. Even if I had done wrong you should not have reproached me in public — people wash their dirty linen at home. France has more need of me than I of France. Napoleon


+ 292 God placed me on the throne, and you reptiles of the earth dare oppose me. I owe no account of my administration to the pope,— only to God and Jesus Christ. Napoleon

Johanan said: When thou seest a generation overwhelmed by many troubles as by a river, await him, as it is written, "When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him;" which is followed by, "And the Redeemer shall come to Zion."

+ 313 Jerusalem Post in 2001 Berger explained that in the view of some elokists: “The supremely righteous, of whom the Rebbe and Moses are the chief exemplars, annul their own essence to the point where their entire essence is that of God. It is permissible to bow to them with this understanding. For this reason, the Rebbe is omniscient, omnipotent, and entirely without limits. He is ‘indistinguishable’ from God. Because he is a transparent window for pure divinity, a ‘man-God,’ ‘when you speak to him, you speak to God.’"

+ 225 In the Torah, God says, “There are things I want you to say yes to, and other things I want you to say no to.”

+ 338 I believe that through discipline, though not through discipline alone, we can achieve serenity, and a certain small but precious measure of the freedom from the accidents of incarnation, and charity, and that detachment which preserves the world which it renounces. I believe that through discipline we can learn to preserve what is essential to our happiness in more and more adverse circumstances, and to abandon with simplicity what would else have seemed to us indispensable; that we come a little to see the world without the gross distortion of personal desire, and in seeing it so, accept more easily our earthly privation and its earthly horror — But because I believe that the reward of discipline is greater than its immediate objective, I would not have you think that discipline without objective is possible: in its nature discipline involves the subjection of the soul to some perhaps minor end; and that end must be real, if the discipline is not to be factitious. Therefore I think that all things which evoke discipline: study, and our duties to men and to the commonwealth, war, and personal hardship, and even the need for subsistence, ought to be greeted by us with profound gratitude, for only through them can we attain to the least detachment; and only so can we know peace. Robert Oppenheimer


+ 365 It is with appreciation and gratefulness that I accept from you this scroll for the Los Alamos Laboratory, and for the men and women whose work and whose hearts have made it. It is our hope that in years to come we may look at the scroll and all that it signifies, with pride. Today that pride must be tempered by a profound concern. If atomic bombs are to be added as new weapons to the arsenals of a warring world, or to the arsenals of the nations preparing for war, then the time will come when mankind will curse the names of Los Alamos and Hiroshima. The people of this world must unite or they will perish. This war that has ravaged so much of the earth, has written these words. The atomic bomb has spelled them out for all men to understand. Other men have spoken them in other times, and of other wars, of other weapons. They have not prevailed. There are some misled by a false sense of human history, who hold that they will not prevail today. It is not for us to believe that. By our minds we are committed, committed to a world united, before the common peril, in law and in humanity. Robert Oppenheimer


+ 306 When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you've had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb. Robert Oppenheimer


+ 296 But when you come right down to it the reason that we did this job is because it was an organic necessity. If you are a scientist you cannot stop such a thing. If you are a scientist you believe that it is good to find out how the world works; that it is good to find out what the realities are; that it is good to turn over to mankind at large the greatest possible power to control the world and to deal with it according to its lights and its values. Robert Oppenheimer

+ 318 Shammai would say: Make your Torah study a permanent fixture of your life. Say little and do much. And receive every man with a pleasant countenance. Pirkei Avot 1:15


+ 319 Rabbi Judah HaNassi would say: Which is the right path for man to choose for himself? Whatever is harmonious for the one who does it, and harmonious for mankind. Be as careful with a minor mitzvah as with a major one, for you do not know the rewards of the mitzvot. Consider the cost of a mitzvah against its rewards, and the rewards of a transgression against its cost. Contemplate three things, and you will not come to the hands of transgression: Know what is above from you: a seeing eye, a listening ear, and all your deeds being inscribed in a book. Pirkei Avot 2:1


+ 318 Rabban Yochanan the son of Zakkai received the tradition from Hillel and Shammai. He would say: If you have learned much Torah, do not take credit for yourself - it is for this that you have been formed. Pirkei Avot 2:8


+ 338 Rabbi Yochanan said to them: Go and see which is the best trait for a person to acquire. Said Rabbi Eliezer: A good eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: A good friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: A good neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To see what is born out of one's actions. Said Rabbi Elazar: A good heart. Said He to them: I prefer the words of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. He said to them: Go and see which is the worst trait, the one that a person should most distance himself from. Said Rabbi Eliezer: An evil eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: An evil friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: An evil neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To borrow and not to repay; for one who borrows from man is as one who borrows from the Almighty, as is stated, "The wicked man borrows and does not repay; but the righteous one is benevolent and gives" (Psalms 37:21). Said Rabbi Elazar: An evil heart. Said He to them: I prefer the word of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. Pirkei Avot 2:10


+ 355 Rabbi Eliezer would say: The honor of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own, and do not be easy to anger. Repent one day before your death. Asked his disciples: Does a man know on which day he will die? Said he to them: So being the case, he should repent today, for perhaps tomorrow he will die; hence, all his days are passed in a state of repentance. Indeed, so said Solomon in his wisdom (Ecclesiastes 9:8): 'At all times, your clothes should be white, and oil should not lack from your head'" (Talmud, Shabbat 153a). Pirkei Avot 2:10


+ 332 Rabbi Tarfon would say: The day is short, the work is much, the workers are lazy, the reward is great, and the Master is pressing. He would also say: It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither are you free to absolve yourself from it. If you have learned much Torah, you will be greatly rewarded, and your employer is trustworthy to pay you the reward of your labors. And know, that the reward of the righteous is in the World to Come. Pirkei Avot 2:15-16


+ 312 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


+ 355 There are four types of people: One who says, "What is mine is yours, and what is yours is mine" is a boor. One who says "What is mine is mine, and what is yours is yours" - this is a median characteristic; others say that this is the character of Sodom. One who says, "What is mine is yours, and what is yours is yours" is a chassid [pious person]. And one who says "What is mine is mine, and what is yours is mine" is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:10


+ 347 Antignos of Socho received the tradition from Shimon the Righteous. He would say: Do not be as slaves, who serve their master for the sake of reward. Rather, be as slaves who serve their master not for the sake of reward. And the fear of Heaven should be upon you. Pirkei Avot 1:3


+ 287 Yossei the son of Yoezer of Tzreidah, and Yossei the son of Yochanan of Jerusalem, received the tradition from them. Yossei the son of Yoezer of Tzreidah would say: Let your home be a meeting place for the wise; dust yourself in the soil of their feet, and drink thirstily of their words. Pirkei Avot 1:4


+ 356 Yossei the son of Yochanan of Jerusalem would say: Let your home be wide open, and let the poor be members of your household. And do not engage in excessive conversation with a woman. This is said even regarding one's own wife--how much more so regarding the wife of another. Hence, the sages said: One who excessively converses with a woman causes evil to himself, neglects the study of Torah, and, in the end, inherits purgatory. Pirkei Avot 1:5


+ 311 Joshua the son of Perachia and Nitai the Arbelite received from them. Joshua the son of Perachia would say: Assume for yourself a master, acquire for yourself a friend, and judge every man to the side of merit. Pirkei Avot 1:6


+ 319 Nitai the Arbelite would say: Distance yourself from a bad neighbor, do not cleave to a wicked person, and do not abandon belief in retribution. Pirkei Avot 1:7


+ 333 Judah the son of Tabbai and Shimon the son of Shotach received from them. Judah the son of Tabbai would say: When sitting in judgement, do not act as a counselor-at-law. When the litigants stand before you, consider them both guilty; and when they leave your courtroom, having accepted the judgement, regard them as equally righteous. Pirkei Avot 1:8


+ 314 Shimon the son of Shotach would say: Increasingly cross-examine the witnesses. Be careful with your words, lest they learn from them how to lie. Pirkei Avot 1:9


+ 304 Avtalyon would say: Scholars, be careful with your words. For you may be exiled to a place inhabited by evil elements who will distort your words to suit their negative purposes. The disciples who come after you will then drink of these evil waters and be destroyed, and the Name of Heaven will be desecrated. Pirkei Avot 1:11


+ 312 Shammai would say: Make your Torah study a permanent fixture of your life. Say little and do much. And receive every man with a pleasant countenance. Pirkei Avot 1:15


+ 301 Rabban Gamliel would say: Assume for yourself a master; stay away from doubt; and do not accustom yourself to tithe by estimation. Pirkei Avot 1:16


+ 391 Rabbi Shimon the son of Gamliel would say: By three things is the world sustained: law, truth and peace. As is stated (Zachariah 8:16), "Truth, and a judgement of peace, you should administer at your [city] gates.'' Pirkei Avot 1:18


+ 328 Rabbi Judah HaNassi would say: Which is the right path for man to choose for himself? Whatever is harmonious for the one who does it, and harmonious for mankind. Be as careful with a minor mitzvah as with a major one, for you do not know the rewards of the mitzvot. Consider the cost of a mitzvah against its rewards, and the rewards of a transgression against its cost. Contemplate three things, and you will not come to the hands of transgression: Know what is above from you: a seeing eye, a listening ear, and all your deeds being inscribed in a book. Pirkei Avot 2:1


+ 344 Rabban Gamliel the son of Rabbi Judah HaNassi would say: Beautiful is the study of Torah with the way of the world, for the toil of them both causes sin to be forgotten. Ultimately, all Torah study that is not accompanied with work is destined to cease and to cause sin. Those who work for the community should do so for the sake of Heaven; for then merit of their ancestors shall aid them, and their righteousness shall endure forever. And you, [says G-d,] I shall credit you with great reward as if you have achieved it. Pirkei Avot 2:2


+ 320 He would also say: Make that His will should be your will, so that He should make your will to be as His will. Nullify your will before His will, so that He should nullify the will of others before your will. Hillel would say: Do not separate yourself from the community. Do not believe in yourself until the day you die. Do not judge your fellow until you have stood in his place. Do not say something that is not readily understood in the belief that it will ultimately be understood [or: Do not say something that ought not to be heard even in the strictest confidence, for ultimately it will be heard]. And do not say "When I free myself of my concerns, I will study,'' for perhaps you will never free yourself. Pirkei Avot 2:4


+ 289 He also saw a skull floating upon the water. Said he to it: Because you drowned others, you were drowned; and those who drowned you, will themselves be drowned. Pirkei Avot 2:6


+ 303 Rabban Yochanan the son of Zakkai received the tradition from Hillel and Shammai. He would say: If you have learned much Torah, do not take credit for yourself - it is for this that you have been formed. Pirkei Avot 2:8


+ 320 Rabbi Yochanan said to them: Go and see which is the best trait for a person to acquire. Said Rabbi Eliezer: A good eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: A good friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: A good neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To see what is born [out of ones actions]. Said Rabbi Elazar: A good heart. Said He to them: I prefer the words of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. He said to them: Go and see which is the worst trait, the one that a person should most distance himself from. Said Rabbi Eliezer: An evil eye. Said Rabbi Joshua: An evil friend. Said Rabbi Yossei: An evil neighbor. Said Rabbi Shimon: To borrow and not to repay; for one who borrows from man is as one who borrows from the Almighty, as is stated, ``The wicked man borrows and does not repay; but the righteous one is benevolent and gives'' (Psalms 37:21). Said Rabbi Elazar: An evil heart. Said He to them: I prefer the word of Elazar the son of Arach to yours, for his words include all of yours. They would each say three things: Rabbi Eliezer would say: The honor of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own, and do not be easy to anger. Repent one day before your death.** Warm yourself by the fire of the sages, but be beware lest you be burned by its embers; for their bite is the bite of a fox, their sting is the sting of a scorpion, their hiss is the hiss a serpent, and all their words are like fiery coals. Pirkei Avot 2:10


+ 338 Rabbi Yossei would say: The property of your fellow should be as precious to you as your own. Perfect yourself for the study of Torah, for it is not an inheritance to you. And all your deeds should be for the sake of Heaven. Pirkei Avot 2:12


+ 308 Rabbi Shimon would say: Be meticulous with the reading of the Shma and with prayer. When you pray, do not make your prayers routine, but [an entreaty of] mercy and a supplication before the Almighty, as is stated ``For He is benevolent and merciful, slow to anger and abundant in loving kindness, and relenting of the evil decree'' (Joel 2:13). And do not be wicked in your own eyes. Pirkei Avot 2:13


+ 357 Rabbi Elazar would say: Be diligent in the study of Torah. Know what to answer a heretic. And know before whom you toil, and who is your employer who will repay you the reward of your labors. Pirkei Avot 2:14


+ 313 He would also say: It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither are you free to absolve yourself from it. If you have learned much Torah, you will be greatly rewarded, and your employer is trustworthy to pay you the reward of your labors. And know, that the reward of the righteous is in the World to Come. Pirkei Avot 2:16


+ 273 Akavia the son of Mahalalel would say: Reflect upon three things and you will not come to the hands of transgression. Know from where you came, where you are going, and before whom you are destined to give a judgement and accounting. From where you came - from a putrid drop; where you are going - to a place of dust, maggots and worms; and before whom you are destined to give a judgement and accounting - before the supreme King of Kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. Pirkei Avot 3:1


+ 336 Rabbi Chalafta the son of Dosa of the village of Chanania would say: Ten who sit together and occupy themselves with Torah, the Divine Presence rests amongst them, as is stated: "The Almighty stands in the congregation of G-d" (Psalms 82:1). And from where do we know that such is also the case with five? From the verse, "He established his band on earth" (Amos 9:6). And three? From the verse, "He renders judgement in the midst of the tribunal" (Psalms 82:1). And two? From the verse, "Then the G-d-fearing conversed with one another, and G-d listened and heard" (Malachi 3:16). And from where do we know that such is the case even with a single individual? From the verse, "Every place where I have My name mentioned, I shall come to you and bless you" (Exodus 20:21). Pirkei Avot 3:6


+ 315 Rabbi Elazar of Bartosa would say: Give Him what is His, for you, and whatever is yours, are His. As David says: "For everything comes from You, and from Your own hand we give to You" (I Chronicles 29:14). Rabbi Yaakov would say: One who walks along a road and studies, and interrupts his studying to say, "How beautiful is this tree!", "How beautiful is this ploughed field!"---the Torah considers it as if he had forfeited his life. Pirkei Avot 3:7


+ 363 Rabbi Dusta'i the son of Rabbi Yannai would say in the name of Rabbi Meir: Anyone who forgets even a single word of this learning, the Torah considers it as if he had forfeited his life. As is stated, "Just be careful, and verily guard your soul, lest you forget the things that your eyes have seen" (Deuteronomy 4:9). One might think that this applies also to one who has forgotten because his studies proved too difficult for him; but the verse goes on to tell us "and lest they be removed from your heart, throughout the days of your life." Hence, one does not forfeit his life unless he deliberately removes them from his heart. Pirkei Avot 3:8


+ 369 He would also say: Beloved is man, for he was created in the image [of G-d]; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to him that he was created in the image, as it is says, "For in the image of G-d, He made man" (Genesis 9:6). Beloved are Israel, for they are called children of G-d; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they are called children of G-d, as it is stated: "You are children of the L-rd your G-d" (Deuteronomy 14:1). Beloved are Israel, for they were given a precious article; it is a sign of even greater love that it has been made known to them that they were given a precious article, as it is stated: "I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it" (Proverbs 4:2). Pirkei Avot 3:14


+ 321 Ben Zoma would say: Who is wise? One who learns from every man. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): "From all my teachers I have grown wise, for Your testimonials are my meditation." Who is strong? One who overpowers his inclinations. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), "Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city." Who is rich? One who is satisfied with his lot. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): "If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you"; "fortunate are you" in this world, "and good is to you" in the World to Come. Who is honorable? One who honors his fellows. As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): "For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned." Pirkei Avot 4:1


+ 306 Rabbi Ishmael the son of Rabbi Yossei would say: One who learns Torah in order to teach, is given the opportunity to learn and teach. One who learns in order to do, is given the opportunity to learn, teach, observe and do. Rabbi Tzaddok would say: Do not separate yourself from the community. Do not act as a counselor-at-law (when serving as a judge). Do not make the Torah a crown to magnify yourself with, or a spade with which to dig. So would Hillel say: one who make personal use of the crown of Torah shall perish. Hence, one who benefits himself from the words of Torah, removes his life from the world. Pirkei Avot 4:5


+ 323 He would also say: Do not judge on your own, for there is none qualified to judge alone, only the One. And do not say, You must accept my view, for this is their the majority's right, not yours. Pirkei Avot 4:8


+ 296 Rabbi Meir would say: Engage minimally in business, and occupy yourself with Torah. Be humble before every man. If you neglect the Torah, there will be many more causes for neglect before you; if you toil much in Torah, there is much reward to give to you. Pirkei Avot 4:10


+ 309 Rabbi Eliezer the son of Shamua would say: The dignity of your student should be as precious to you as your own; the dignity of your colleague, as your awe of your master; and your awe of your master as your awe of Heaven. Pirkei Avot 4:12


+ 303 Rabbi Judah would say: Be careful with your studies, for an error of learning is tantamount to a willful transgression. Rabbi Shimon would say: There are three crowns--the crown of Torah, the crown of priesthood and the crown of sovereignty--but the crown of good name surmounts them all. Pirkei Avot 4:13


+ 301 Rabbi Nehora'i would say: Exile yourself to a place of Torah; do not say that it will come after you, that your colleagues will help you retain it. Rely not on your own understanding. Pirkei Avot 4:14


+ 329 Rabbi Yaakov would say: This world is comparable to the antechamber before the World to Come. Prepare yourself in the antechamber, so that you may enter the banquet hall. Pirkei Avot 4:16


+ 332 Rabbi Shimon the son of Elazar would say: Do not appease your friend at the height of his anger; do not comfort him while his dead still lies before him; do not ask him about his vow the moment he makes it; and do not endeavor to see him at the time of his degradation. Pirkei Avot 4:18


+ 305 Samuel the Small would say: "When your enemy falls, do not rejoice; when he stumbles, let your heart not be gladdened. Lest G-d see, and it will displeasing in His eyes, and He will turn His wrath from him [to you]" (Proverbs 24:17-18). Pirkei Avot 4:19


+ 303 Elisha the son of Avuyah would say: One who learns Torah in his childhood, what is this comparable to? To ink inscribed on fresh paper. One who learns Torah in his old age, what is this comparable to? To ink inscribed on erased paper. Rabbi Yossei the son of Judah of Kfar HaBavli would say: One who learns Torah from youngsters, whom is he comparable to? To one who eats unripe grapes and drinks [unfermented] wine from the press. One who learns Torah from the old, whom is he comparable to? To one who eats ripened grapes and drinks aged wine. Said Rabbi Meir: Look not at the vessel, but at what it contains. There are new vessels that are filled with old wine, and old vessels that do not even contain new wine. Pirkei Avot 4:20


+ 329 He would also say: Those who are born will die, and the dead will live. The living will be judged, to learn, to teach and to comprehend that He is G-d, He is the former, He is the creator, He is the comprehender, He is the judge, He is the witness, He is the plaintiff, and He will judge. Blessed is He, for before Him there is no wrong, no forgetting, no favoritism, and no taking of bribes; know, that everything is according to the reckoning. Let not your heart convince you that the grave is your escape; for against your will you are formed, against your will you are born, against your will you live, against your will you die, and against your will you are destined to give a judgement and accounting before the king, king of all kings, the Holy One, blessed be He. Pirkei Avot 4:22


+ 383 There are four types of people: One who says, "What is mine is yours, and what is yours is mine" is a boor. One who says "What is mine is mine, and what is yours is yours" - this is a median characteristic; others say that this is the character of a Sodomite. One who says, "What is mine is yours, and what is yours is yours" is a chassid (pious person). And one who says "What is mine is mine, and what is yours is mine" is wicked. Pirkei Avot 5:10


+ 381 Whoever possesses the following three traits is of the disciples of our father Abraham; and whoever possesses the opposite three traits is of the disciples of the wicked Balaam. The disciples of our father Abraham have a good eye, a meek spirit and a humble soul. The disciples of the wicked Balaam have an evil eye, a haughty spirit and a gross soul. What is the difference between the disciples of our father Abraham and the disciples of the wicked Balaam? The disciples of our father Abraham benefit in this world and inherit the World To Come, and as is stated, "To bequeath to those who love Me there is, and their treasures I shall fill" (Proverbs 8:21). The disciples of the wicked Balaam inherit purgatory and descent into the pit of destruction, as is stated, "And You, G-d, shall cast them into the pit of destruction; bloody and deceitful men, they shall not attain half their days. And I shall trust in you" (ibid., 55:24). Pirkei Avot 5:19


+ 307 Judah the son of Teima would say: Be bold as a leopard, light as an eagle, fleeting as a deer and mighty as a lion to do the will of your Father in Heaven. He would also say: The brazen--to purgatory; the bashful--to paradise. May it be Your will, L-rd our G-d and G-d of our fathers, that the Holy Temple be rebuilt speedily in our days; and grant us our portion in Your Torah. Pirkei Avot 5:20


+ 344 One who learns from his fellow a single chapter, or a single law, or a single verse, or a single word, or even a single letter, he must treat him with respect. For so we find with David, king of Israel, who did not learn anything from Achitofel except for two things alone, yet he called him his "master," his "guide" and his "intimate," as is stated (Psalms 55:14), "And you are a man of my worth, my guide and intimate friend." Surely we can infer a fortiori: if David, king of Israel, who learned nothing from Achitofel except for two things alone, nevertheless referred to him as his master, guide and intimate, it certainly goes without saying that one who learns from his fellow a single chapter, a law, a verse, a saying, or even a single letter, is obligated to revere him. And there is no reverence but Torah, as is stated (Proverbs 3:35; 28:10), "The sages shall inherit honor" "and the integral shall inherit good"; and there is no good but Torah, as is stated (ibid. 4:2), "I have given you a good purchase; My Torah, do not forsake it." Pirkei Avot 6:3


+ 296 Such is the way of Torah: Bread with salt you shall eat, water in small measure you shall drink, and upon the ground you shall sleep; live a life of deprivation and toil in Torah. If so you do, "fortunate are you, and good is to you" (Psalms 128:2): fortunate are you in this world, and it is good to you in the World To Come. Pirkei Avot 6:4


+ 320 Do not seek greatness for yourself, and do not lust for honor. More than you study, do. Desire not the table of kings, for your table is greater than theirs, and your crown is greater than theirs, and faithful is your Employer to pay you the rewards of your work. Pirkei Avot 6:5


+ 302 Great is Torah, for it gives life to its observers in this world, and in the World To Come. As is stated (Proverbs 4:22): "For they are life to he who finds them, and a healing to all his flesh." And it says (ibid. 3:8): "It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones." And it says (3:18): "She is a tree of life for those who hold fast to her, and happy are those who support her." And it says (1:9): "For they shall be a garland of grace for your head, and necklaces about your neck." And it says(4:9): "She shall give to your head a garland of grace, a crown of glory she shall grant you." And it says (9:11): "With me, your days shall be increased, and years of life shall be added to you." And it says (3:16): "Long days in her right hand; in her left, wealth and honor." And it says (3:2): "For long days, years of life and peace, they shall add to you." Pirkei Avot 6:7


+ 325 Rabbi Shimon the son of Judah would say in the name of Rabbi Shimon the son of Yochai: Beauty, strength, wealth, honor, wisdom, sageness, old age and children are becoming to the righteous and becoming to the world. As is stated (Proverbs 16:31): "Old age is a crown of beauty, to be found in the ways of righteousness." And it says (ibid. 20:29): "The beauty of youths is their strength, and the glory of sages is their age." And it says (ibid., 17:6): "The crown of sages are their grandchildren, and the beauty of children their fathers." And it says (Isaiah 24:23): "And the moon shall be abashed and the sun shamed, for the Lord of hosts has reigned in Zion, and before his elders is glory." Rabbi Shimon the son of Menasia would say: these seven qualities enumerated by the sages for the righteous were all realized in Rabbi [Judah HaNassi] and his sons. Pirkei Avot 6:8


+ 344 Said Rabbi Yossei the son of Kisma: Once, I was traveling and I encountered a man. He greeted me and I returned his greetings. Said he to me: "Rabbi, where are you from?" Said I to him: "From a great city of sages and scholars, am I." Said he to me: "Rabbi, would you like to dwell with us in our place? I will give you a million dinars of gold, precious stones and pearls." Said I to him: "If you were to give me all the silver, gold, precious stones and pearls in the world, I would not dwell anywhere but in a place of Torah. Indeed, so is written in the book of psalms by David the king of Israel: `I prefer the Torah of Your mouth over thousands in gold and silver' (Psalms 118:72). Furthermore, when a person passes from this world neither silver, nor gold, nor precious stones, nor pearls accompany him, only Torah and good deeds, as is stated (Proverbs 6:22): `When you go it will direct you, when you lie down it will watch over you, and when you awaken it shall be your speech.' `When you go it will direct you' - in this world; `when you lie down it will watch over you' - in the grave; `and when you awaken it shall be our speech' - in the World To Come. Also it says (Chaggai 2:8): `Mine is the silver and Mine is the gold, so says the L-rd of Hosts.' " Pirkei Avot 6:9


+ 372 God acquired five acquisitions in his world. These are: one acquisition is the Torah, one acquisition are the heavens and the earth, one acquisition is Abraham, one acquisition is the people of Israel, and one acquisition is the Holy Temple. The Torah, as it is written (Proverbs 8:22), "God acquired me as the beginning of His way, before His works of yore." The heavens and the earth, as it is written (Isaiah 66:1), "So says God: The heavens are My throne and the earth is My footstool; what house, then, can you build for Me, and where is My place of rest?"; and it says (Psalms 104:25), "How many are your works, O God, You have made them all with wisdom; the earth is filled with Your acquisitions." Abraham, as it is written (Genesis 14:19), "And he blessed him, and said: Blessed be Abram to God Most High, acquirer of heavens and earth." Israel, as it is written (Exodus 15:16), "Till Your nation, O God, shall pass, till this nation You have acquired shall pass"; and it says (Psalms 16:3), "To the holy who are upon earth, the noble ones, in whom is all My delight." The Holy Temple, as it is written (Exodus 15:17), "The base for Your dwelling that you, God, have achieved; the Sanctuary, O Lord, that Your hands have established"; and it says (Psalms 78:54), "And He brought them to His holy domain, this mount His right hand has acquired." Pirkei Avot 6:10


+ 312 "Let me tell you what I try to do. Imagine that you're looking at a candle. What you're really seeing is a lump of wax with a thread down its middle. So when do the thread and wax become a candle? Or, in other words, when do they fulfill the purpose for which they were created? When you put a flame to the thread, then the candle becomes a candle. "The wax is the body, and the wick the soul. Ignite the soul with the fire of Torah and a person will then fulfill the purpose for which he or she was created. And that is what I try to do -- to ignite the soul of our people with the fire of Torah." "My candle," I asked, "has the Rebbe lit it?" "I have given you the match," he said. "Only you can light your candle." — From a conversation between the Lubavitcher Rebbe and Yehudah Avner


+ 365 Grand Rabbi Moshe Shternbuch of the Eda Charedit, a great grandson of the Gaon of Vilna osb"m, said this past week that the times of the Mashiach are here. His source is the Vilna Gaon himself. Rav Shternbuch received a closely guarded secret that came to him from Rabbi Yitzchak Chever zatza"l, who received it from Rabbi Chaim of Volozhyn zatza"l, who received it from the Gaon of Vilna himself, who revealed it shortly before his death: “When you hear that the Russians have captured the city of Crimea, you should know that the times of the Messiah have started, that his steps are being heard. And when you hear that the Russians have reached the city of Constantinople (today’s Istanbul), you should put on your Shabbat clothes and don’t take them off, because it means that the Messiah is about to come any minute.” According to the above, we owe a note of thanks to Russian president Vladimir Putin for helping to bring Mashiach a step closer.

+ 277 They teach wisdom and self-control; they will help you understand wise words. Mishlei 1:2


+ 257 They will teach you how to be wise and self-controlled and will teach you to do what is honest and fair and right. Mishlei 1:3


+ 247 They make the uneducated wise and give knowledge and sense to the young. Mishlei 1:4


+ 299 My child, listen to your father’s teaching and do not forget your mother’s advice. Mishlei 1:8


+ 261 Their teaching will be like flowers in your hair or a necklace around your neck. Mishlei 1:9


+ 240 My child, if sinners try to lead you into sin, do not follow them. Mishlei 1:10


+ 282 Come join us, and we will share with you stolen goods. Mishlei 1:14


+ 242 You fools, how long will you be foolish? How long will you make fun of wisdom and hate knowledge? Mishlei 1:22


+ 275 If only you had listened when I corrected you, I would have told you what’s in my heart; I would have told you what I am thinking. Mishlei 1:23


+ 251 I called, but you refused to listen; I held out my hand, but you paid no attention. Mishlei 1:24


+ 226 You did not follow my advice and did not listen when I corrected you. Mishlei 1:25


+ 291 So I will laugh when you are in trouble. I will make fun when disaster strikes you, Mishlei 1:26


+ 376 When disaster comes over you like a storm, when trouble strikes you like a whirlwind, when pain and trouble overwhelm you. Mishlei 1:27


+ 299 Then you will call to me, but I will not answer. You will look for me, but you will not find me. Mishlei 1:28


+ 256 It is because you rejected knowledge and did not choose to respect the Lord. Mishlei 1:29


+ 237 You did not accept my advice, and you rejected my correction. Mishlei 1:30


+ 242 So you will get what you deserve; you will get what you planned for others. Mishlei 1:31


+ 252 My child, listen to what I say and remember what I command you. Mishlei 2:1


+ 270 Listen carefully to wisdom; set your mind on understanding. Mishlei 2:2


+ 259 Then you will understand respect for the Lord, and you will find that you know God. Mishlei 2:5


+ 251 Then you will understand what is honest and fair and what is the good and right thing to do. Mishlei 2:9

+ 231 Good sense will protect you; understanding will guard you. Mishlei 2:11


+ 245 It will keep you from the wicked, from those whose words are bad, Mishlei 2:12


+ 272 It will save you from the unfaithful wife who tries to lead you into adultery with pleasing words. Mishlei 2:16


+ 284 She leaves the husband she married when she was young. She ignores the promise she made before God. Mishlei 2:17


+ 241 But wisdom will help you be good and do what is right. Mishlei 2:20


+ 283 Then you will live a long time, and your life will be successful. Mishlei 3:2


+ 257 Don’t ever forget kindness and truth. Wear them like a necklace. Write them on your heart as if on a tablet. Mishlei 3:3


+ 257 Then you will be respected and will please both God and people. Mishlei 3:4


+ 245 Trust the Lord with all your heart, and don’t depend on your own understanding. Mishlei 3:5


+ 243 Remember the Lord in all you do, and he will give you success. Mishlei 3:6

+ 255 You won’t be afraid of sudden trouble; you won’t fear the ruin that comes to the wicked, Mishlei 3:25


+ 309 Because the Lord will keep you safe. He will keep you from being trapped. Mishlei 3:26


+ 261 Whenever you are able, do good to people who need help. Mishlei 3:27


+ 263 If you have what your neighbor asks for, don’t say, “Come back later. I will give it to you tomorrow.” Mishlei 3:28

+ 241 My children, listen to your father’s teaching; pay attention so you will understand. Mishlei 4:1


+ 237 What I am telling you is good, so do not forget what I teach you. Mishlei 4:2


+ 236 When I was a young boy in my father’s house and like an only child to my mother, Mishlei 4:3


+ 255 My father taught me and said, “Hold on to my words with all your heart. Keep my commands and you will live. Mishlei 4:4


+ 349 Hold on to wisdom, and it will take care of you. Love it, and it will keep you safe. Mishlei 4:6


+ 246 Wisdom is the most important thing; so get wisdom. If it costs everything you have, get understanding. Mishlei 4:7


+ 308 Treasure wisdom, and it will make you great; hold on to it, and it will bring you honor. Mishlei 4:8


+ 223 It will be like flowers in your hair and like a beautiful crown on your head. Mishlei 4:9

+ 470 Nothing will hold you back; you will not be overwhelmed. Mishlei 4:12


+ 310 Always remember what you have been taught, and don’t let go of it. Keep all that you have learned; it is the most important thing in life. Mishlei 4:13


+ 244 Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life. Mishlei 4:23


+ 260 Don’t use your mouth to tell lies; don’t ever say things that are not true. Mishlei 4:24


+ 267 Keep your eyes focused on what is right, and look straight ahead to what is good. Mishlei 4:25


+ 252 Be careful what you do, and always do what is right. Mishlei 4:26

+ 236 But in the end she will bring you sorrow, causing you pain like a two-edged sword. Mishlei 5:4


+ 256 Or you will give your riches to others, and the best years of your life will be given to someone cruel. Mishlei 5:9


+ 256 Strangers will enjoy your wealth, and what you worked so hard for will go to someone else. Mishlei 5:10


+ 240 You will groan at the end of your life when your health is gone. Mishlei 5:11


+ 252 Then you will say, “I hated being told what to do! I would not listen to correction! Mishlei 5:12


+ 237 Be faithful to your own wife, just as you drink water from your own well. Mishlei 5:15


+ 298 Do not pour your water in the streets; do not give your love to just any woman. Mishlei 5:16


+ 255 These things are yours alone and shouldn’t be shared with strangers. Mishlei 5:17


+ 259 Be happy with the wife you married when you were young. She gives you joy, as your fountain gives you water. Mishlei 5:18


+ 300 She is as lovely and graceful as a deer. Let her love always make you happy; let her love always hold you captive. Mishlei 5:19


+ 243 My son, don’t be held captive by a woman who takes part in adultery. Don’t fondle a woman who is not your wife. Mishlei 5:20


+ 253 The Lord sees everything you do, and he watches where you go. Mishlei 5:21


+ 226 You might get trapped by what you say; you might be caught by your own words. Mishlei 6:2


+ 270 My child, if you have done this and are under your neighbor’s control, here is how to get free. Don’t be proud. Go to your neighbor and beg to be free from your promise. Mishlei 6:3


+ 231 Don’t go to sleep or even rest your eyes, Mishlei 6:4


+ 237 But free yourself like a deer running from a hunter, like a bird flying away from a trapper. Mishlei 6:5


+ 232 Go watch the ants, you lazy person. Watch what they do and be wise. Mishlei 6:6


+ 284 How long will you lie there, you lazy person? When will you get up from sleeping? Mishlei 6:9


+ 264 You sleep a little; you take a nap. You fold your hands and lie down to rest. Mishlei 6:10


+ 252 So you will be as poor as if you had been robbed; you will have as little as if you had been held up. Mishlei 6:11


+ 246 My son, keep your father’s commands, and don’t forget your mother’s teaching. Mishlei 6:20


+ 240 Keep their words in mind forever as though you had them tied around your neck. Mishlei 6:21


+ 245 They will guide you when you walk. They will guard you when you sleep. They will speak to you when you are awake. Mishlei 6:22


+ 242 These commands are like a lamp; this teaching is like a light. And the correction that comes from them will help you have life. Mishlei 6:23


+ 269 They will keep you from sinful women and from the pleasing words of another man’s unfaithful wife. Mishlei 6:24


+ 249 Don’t desire her because she is beautiful. Don’t let her capture you by the way she looks at you. Mishlei 6:25


+ 262 A prostitute will treat you like a loaf of bread, and a woman who takes part in adultery may cost you your life. Mishlei 6:26


+ 255 You cannot carry hot coals against your chest without burning your clothes, Mishlei 6:27


+ 322 And you cannot walk on hot coals without burning your feet. Mishlei 6:28


+ 256 The same is true if you have sexual relations with another man’s wife. Anyone who does so will be punished. Mishlei 6:29


+ 243 Obey my commands, and you will live. Guard my teachings as you would your own eyes. Mishlei 7:2


+ 248 Remind yourself of them; write them on your heart as if on a tablet. Mishlei 7:3


+ 285 Treat wisdom as a sister, and make understanding your closest friend. Mishlei 7:4


+ 289 Wisdom and understanding will keep you away from adultery, away from the unfaithful wife and her pleasing words. Mishlei 7:5


+ 312 And saw some foolish, young men. I noticed one of them had no wisdom. Mishlei 7:7


+ 222 So I have come out to meet you; I have been looking for you and have found you. Mishlei 7:15


+ 247 Do not let yourself be tricked by such a woman; do not go where she leads you. Mishlei 7:25


+ 298 Wisdom calls to you like someone shouting; understanding raises her voice. Mishlei 8:1


+ 226 Listen, everyone, I am calling out to you; I am shouting to all people. Mishlei 8:4


+ 260 You who are uneducated, seek wisdom. You who are foolish, get understanding. Mishlei 8:5


+ 225 Listen, because I have important things to say, and what I tell you is right. Mishlei 8:6


+ 224 Wisdom is more precious than rubies. Nothing you could want is equal to it. Mishlei 8:11


+ 240 Leave, you simpletons, and live, and step in the way of understanding. Mishlei 9:6


+ 245 Reprove not a scorner lest he hate you; reprove a wise man and he will love you. Mishlei 9:8


+ 252 For with me shall your days increase, and they will add to you years of life. Mishlei 9:11


+ 222 If you have become wise, you have become wise for yourself, and if you scorn, you will bear it alone. Mishlei 9:12


+ 249 A wink may get you into trouble, and foolish talk will lead to your ruin. Mishlei 10:10


+ 258 If you talk a lot, you are sure to sin; if you are wise, you will keep quiet. Mishlei 10:19


+ 242 Riches will not help when it’s time to die, but right living will save you from death. Mishlei 11:4


+ 243 The plans that good people make are fair, but the advice of the wicked will trick you. Mishlei 12:5


+ 258 Worry is a heavy load, but a kind word cheers you up. Mishlei 12:25


+ 255 It is sad not to get what you hoped for. But wishes that come true are like eating fruit from the tree of life. Mishlei 13:12


+ 326 Spend time with the wise and you will become wise, but the friends of fools will suffer. Mishlei 13:20


+ 262 If you do not punish your children, you don’t love them, but if you love your children, you will correct them. Mishlei 13:24


+ 224 Stay away from fools, because they can not teach you anything. Proverbs 14:7


+ 213 No one else can know your sadness, and strangers cannot share your joy. Mishlei 14:10


+ 218 It is a sin to hate your neighbor, but being kind to the needy brings happiness. Mishlei 14:21


+ 249 Peace of mind means a healthy body, but jealousy will rot your bones. Mishlei 14:30


+ 253 It is better to eat vegetables with those who love you than to eat meat with those who hate you. Mishlei 15:17


+ 210 Good news makes you feel better. Your happiness will show in your eyes. Mishlei 15:30


+ 242 If you listen to correction to improve your life, you will live among the wise. Mishlei 15:31


+ 232 Respect for the Lord will teach you wisdom. If you want to be honored, you must be humble. Mishlei 15:33


+ 236 You may believe you are doing right, but the Lord will judge your reasons. Mishlei 16:2


+ 258 Depend on the Lord in whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. Mishlei 16:3


+ 275 Love and truth bring forgiveness of sin. By respecting the Lord you will avoid evil. Mishlei 16:6


+ 246 Patience is better than strength. Controlling your temper is better than capturing a city. Mishlei 16:32


+ 291 A friend loves you all the time, and a brother helps in time of trouble. Mishlei 17:17


+ 239 It is not wise to promise to pay what your neighbor owes. Mishlei 17:18


+ 203 A happy heart is like good medicine, but a broken spirit drains your strength. Mishlei 17:22


+ 249 Do something evil, and people won’t like you. Do something shameful, and they will make fun of you. Mishlei 18:3


+ 252 The will to live can get you through sickness, but no one can live with a broken spirit. Mishlei 18:14


+ 239 Taking gifts to important people will help get you in to see them. Mishlei 18:16


+ 242 What you say can mean life or death. Those who speak with care will be rewarded. Mishlei 18:21


+ 274 Some friends may ruin you, but a real friend will be more loyal than a brother. Mishlei 18:24


+ 228 Enthusiasm without knowledge is not good. If you act too quickly, you might make a mistake. Mishlei 19:2


+ 269 Being kind to the poor is like lending to the Lord; he will reward you for what you have done. Mishlei 19:17


+ 263 Correct your children while there is still hope; do not let them destroy themselves. Mishlei 19:18


+ 251 People with quick tempers will have to pay for it. If you help them out once, you will have to do it again. Mishlei 19:19


+ 283 Listen to advice and accept correction, and in the end you will be wise. Mishlei 19:20


+ 268 Don’t stop listening to correction, my child, or you will forget what you have already learned. Mishlei 19:27


+ 238 An angry king is like a roaring lion. Making him angry may cost you your life. Mishlei 20:2


+ 246 Foolish people are always fighting, but avoiding quarrels will bring you honor. Mishlei 20:3


+ 262 If you love to sleep, you will be poor. If you stay awake, you will have plenty of food. Mishlei 20:13


+ 235 Get advice if you want your plans to work. If you go to war, get the advice of others. Mishlei 20:18


+ 265 Wealth inherited quickly in the beginning will do you no good in the end. Mishlei 20:21


+ 248 Don’t say, “I’ll pay you back for the wrong you did.” Wait for the Lord, and he will make things right. Mishlei 20:22


+ 235 It’s dangerous to promise something to God too quickly. After you’ve thought about it, it may be too late. Mishlei 20:25


+ 266 The young glory in their strength, and the old are honored for their gray hair. Mishlei 20:29


+ 250 You may believe you are doing right, but the Lord judges your reasons. Mishlei 21:2


+ 235 If you punish those who make fun of wisdom, a foolish person may gain some wisdom. But if you teach the wise, they will get knowledge. Mishlei 21:11


+ 267 You can get the horses ready for battle, but it is the Lord who gives the victory. Mishlei 21:31


+ 306 Respecting the Lord and not being proud will bring you wealth, honor, and life. Mishlei 22:4


+ 263 Listen carefully to what wise people say; pay attention to what I am teaching you. Mishlei 22:17


+ 249 It will be good to keep these things in mind so that you are ready to repeat them. Mishlei 22:18


+ 217 I am teaching them to you now so that you will put your trust in the Lord. Mishlei 22:19


+ 235 I have written thirty sayings for you, which give knowledge and good advice. Mishlei 22:20


+ 253 I am teaching you true and reliable words so that you can give true answers to anyone who asks. Mishlei 22:21


+ 226 If you do, you will be like them. Then you will be in real danger. Mishlei 22:25


+ 257 If you cannot pay the loan, your own bed may be taken right out from under you. Mishlei 22:27


+ 253 Don’t move an old stone that marks a border, because those stones were set up by your ancestors. Mishlei 22:28


+ 220 Do you see people skilled in their work? They will work for kings, not for ordinary people. Mishlei 22:29


+ 269 If you sit down to eat with a ruler, notice the food that is in front of you. Mishlei 23:1


+ 235 Control yourself if you have a big appetite. Mishlei 23:2


+ 225 Don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich; be wise enough to control yourself. Mishlei 23:4


+ 267 Selfish people are always worrying about how much the food costs. They tell you, “Eat and drink,” but they don’t really mean it. Mishlei 23:7


+ 216 You will throw up the little you have eaten, and you will have wasted your kind words. Mishlei 23:8


+ 234 Do not speak to fools; they will only ignore your wise words. Mishlei 23:9


+ 223 God, their defender, is strong; he will take their side against you. Mishlei 23:11


+ 235 Remember what you are taught, and listen carefully to words of knowledge. Mishlei 23:12


+ 227 Don’t fail to punish children. If you spank them, they won’t die. Mishlei 23:13


+ 233 If you spank them, you will save them from death. Mishlei 23:14


+ 239 My child, if you are wise, then I will be happy. Mishlei 23:15


+ 224 I will be so pleased if you speak what is right. Mishlei 23:16


+ 237 Then you will have hope for the future, and your wishes will come true. Mishlei 23:18


+ 240 Listen, my child, and be wise. Keep your mind on what is right. Mishlei 23:19


+ 254 Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not forget your mother when she is old. Mishlei 23:22


+ 224 Make your father and mother happy; give your mother a reason to be glad. Mishlei 23:25


+ 287 They ambush you like robbers and cause many men to be unfaithful to their wives. Mishlei 23:28


+ 236 Your eyes will see strange sights, and your mind will be confused. Mishlei 23:33


+ 264 You will feel dizzy as if you’re in a storm on the ocean, as if you’re on top of a ship’s sails. Mishlei 23:34


+ 241 You will think, They hit me, but I’m not hurt. They beat me up, but I don’t remember it. I wish I could wake up. Then I would get another drink.
Mishlei 23:35


+ 233 So you need advice when you go to war. If you have lots of good advice, you will win. Mishlei 24:6


+ 246 If you give up when trouble comes, it shows that you are weak. Mishlei 24:10


+ 250 If you say, “We don’t know anything about this,” God, who knows what’s in your mind, will notice. Mishlei 24:12


+ 275 If you say, “We don’t know anything about this,” God, who knows what’s in your mind, will notice. He is watching you, and he will know. He will reward each person for what he has done. Mishlei 24:12


+ 280 In the same way, wisdom is pleasing to you. If you find it, you have hope for the future, and your wishes will come true. Mishlei 24:14


+ 265 Don’t be happy when your enemy is defeated; don’t be glad when he is overwhelmed. Mishlei 24:17


+ 265 These are also sayings of the wise: It is not good to take sides when you are the judge. Mishlei 24:23


+ 253 Don’t tell the wicked that they are innocent; people will curse you, and nations will hate you. Mishlei 24:24


+ 260 But things will go well if you punish the guilty, and you will receive rich blessings. Mishlei 24:25


+ 247 First, finish your outside work and prepare your fields. After that, you can build your house. Mishlei 24:27


+ 253 Don’t testify against your neighbor for no good reason. Don’t say things that are false. Mishlei 24:28


+ 236 You sleep a little; you take a nap. You fold your hands and lie down to rest. Mishlei 24:33


+ 247 Soon you will be as poor as if you had been robbed; you will have as little as if you had been held up. Mishlei 24:34


+ 239 Don’t brag to the king and act as if you are great. Mishlei 25:6


+ 247 It is better for him to give you a higher position than to bring you down in front of the prince. Because of something you have seen, Mishlei 25:7


+ 220 Do not quickly take someone to court. What will you do later when your neighbor proves you wrong? Mishlei 25:8


+ 252 If you have an argument with your neighbor, don’t tell other people what was said. Mishlei 25:9


+ 232 Whoever hears it might shame you, and you might not ever be respected again. Mishlei 25:10


+ 238 With patience you can convince a ruler, and a gentle word can get through to the hard-headed. Mishlei 25:15


+ 213 If you find honey, don’t eat too much, or it will make you throw up. Mishlei 25:16


+ 227 Don’t go to your neighbor’s house too often; too much of you will make him hate you. Mishlei 25:17


+ 256 When you lie about your neighbors, it hurts them as much as a club, a sword, or a sharp arrow. Mishlei 25:18


+ 252 Trusting unfaithful people when you are in trouble is like eating with a broken tooth or walking with a crippled foot. Mishlei 25:19


+ 255 If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him a drink. Mishlei 25:21


+ 221 Doing this will be like pouring burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you. Mishlei 25:22


+ 264 Good news from a faraway place is like a cool drink when you are tired. Mishlei 25:25


+ 236 Good news from a faraway place is like a cool drink when you are tired. Mishlei 25:25


+ 243 It is not good to eat too much honey, nor does it bring you honor to brag about yourself. Mishlei 25:27


+ 229 Don’t answer fools when they speak foolishly, or you will be just like them. Mishlei 26:4


+ 270 Sending a message by a foolish person is like cutting off your feet or drinking poison. Mishlei 26:6


+ 245 Interfering in someone else’s quarrel as you pass by is like grabbing a dog by the ears. Mishlei 26:17


+ 240 Those who hate you may try to fool you with their words, but in their minds they are planning evil. Mishlei 26:24


+ 231 Don’t brag about tomorrow; you don’t know what may happen then. Mishlei 27:1


+ 257 Don’t praise yourself. Let someone else do it. Let the praise come from a stranger and not from your own mouth. Mishlei 27:2


+ 246 The slap of a friend can be trusted to help you, but the kisses of an enemy are nothing but lies. Mishlei 27:6


+ 224 When you are full, not even honey tastes good, but when you are hungry, even something bitter tastes sweet. Mishlei 27:7


+ 251 Don’t forget your friend or your parent’s friend. Don’t always go to your family for help when trouble comes. A neighbor close by is better than a family far away. Mishlei 27:10


+ 238 If you loudly greet your neighbor early in the morning, he will think of it as a curse. Mishlei 27:14


+ 253 Stopping her is like stopping the wind or trying to grab oil in your hand. Mishlei 27:16


+ 252 As water reflects your face, so your mind shows what kind of person you are. Mishlei 27:19


+ 280 Even if you ground up a foolish person like grain in a bowl, you couldn’t remove the foolishness. Mishlei 27:22


+ 212 Be sure you know how your sheep are doing, and pay attention to the condition of your cattle. Mishlei 27:23


+ 258 There will be plenty of goat’s milk to feed you and your family and to make your servant girls healthy. Mishlei 27:27


+ 256 If you refuse to obey what you have been taught, your prayers will not be heard. Mishlei 28:9


+ 231 If you hide your sins, you will not succeed. If you confess and reject them, you will receive mercy. Mishlei 28:13


+ 250 Correct your children, and you will be proud; they will give you satisfaction. Mishlei 29:17


+ 241 Do you see people who speak too quickly? There is more hope for a foolish person than for them. Mishlei 29:20


+ 247 If you spoil your servants when they are young, they will bring you grief later on. Mishlei 29:21


+ 238 Being afraid of people can get you into trouble, but if you trust the Lord, you will be safe. Mishlei 29:25


+ 254 Who has gone up to heaven and come back down?
Who can hold the wind in his hand?
Who can gather up the waters in his coat?
Who has set in place the ends of the earth?
What is his name or his son’s name?
Tell me, if you know!
Mishlei 30:4


+ 238 Do not add to his words, or he will correct you and prove you are a liar. Mishlei 30:6


+ 217 I ask two things from you, Lord. Don’t refuse me before I die. Mishlei 30:7


+ 251 If I have too much, I might reject you and say, ‘I don’t know the Lord.’
If I am poor, I might steal and disgrace the name of my God.
Mishlei 30:9


+ 258 Do not say bad things about servants to their masters, or they will curse you, and you will suffer for it. Mishlei 30:10


+ 261 If you make fun of your father and refuse to obey your mother, the birds of the valley will peck out your eyes, and the vultures will eat them. Mishlei 30:17


+ 255 If you have been foolish and proud, or if you have planned evil, shut your mouth. Mishlei 30:32


+ 263 My son, I gave birth to you. You are the son I prayed for. Mishlei 30:2


+ 213 Don’t waste your strength on women or your time on those who ruin kings. Mishlei 30:3


+ 239 Saying, “There are many fine women, but you are better than all of them.” Mishlei 31:29


+ 257 Charm can fool you, and beauty can trick you, but a woman who respects the Lord should be praised. Mishlei 31:30

+ 323 “For three thousand years, Jerusalem has been the center of Jewish hope and longing. No other city has played such a dominant role in the history, culture, religion and consciousness of a people as has Jerusalem in the life of Jewry and Judaism. Throughout centuries of exile, Jerusalem remained alive in the hearts of Jews everywhere as the focal point of Jewish history, the symbol of ancient glory, spiritual fulfillment and modern renewal. This heart and soul of the Jewish people engenders the thought that if you want one simple word to symbolize all of Jewish history, that word would be ‘Jerusalem.’” Teddy Kollek; Mayor of Jerusalem (1967-1993) Jerusalem, (DC: Washington Institute For Near East Policy, 1990), pp. 19-20.


+ 257 You ought to let the Jews have Jerusalem; it was they who made it famous. Winston Churchill to diplomat Evelyn Shuckburgh, 1955

+ 301 Oh Jerusalem, the city of sorrow
A big tear wandering in the eye
Who will halt the aggression?
On you, the pearl of religions?
Who will wash your bloody walls?
Who will safeguard the Bible?
Who will rescue the Quran?
Who will save Christ,
From those who have killed Christ?
Who will save man?
Nizar Qabbani


+ 365 Jerusalem! My Love,My Town
I wept until my tears were dry
I prayed until the candles flickered
I knelt until the floor creaked
I asked about Mohammed and Christ
Oh Jerusalem, the fragrance of prophets
The shortest path between earth and sky
Oh Jerusalem, the citadel of laws
A beautiful child with fingers charred
and downcast eyes
You are the shady oasis passed by the Prophet
Your streets are melancholy
Your minarets are mourning
You, the young maiden dressed in black
Who rings the bells at the Nativity Church,
On sunday morning?
Who brings toys for the children
On Christmas eve?
Oh Jerusalem, the city of sorrow
A big tear wandering in the eye
Who will halt the aggression
On you, the pearl of religions?
Who will wash your bloody walls?
Who will safeguard the Bible?
Who will rescue the Quran?
Who will save Christ, From those who have killed Christ?
Who will save man?
Oh Jerusalem my town
Oh Jerusalem my love
Tomorrow the lemon trees will blossom
And the olive trees will rejoice
Your eyes will dance
The migrant pigeons will return
To your sacred roofs
And your children will play again
And fathers and sons will meet
On your rosy hills
My town
The town of peace and olives
Nizar Qabbani


+ 262 Only God can change a season of war into a season of peace. Would you agree with me in prayer for peace? Mike Evans


+ 294 It is more than twenty years since we left the city. This is a serious chunk of time, longer than the years we spent living there. Yet we still think of Jerusalem as our home. Not home in the sense of the place that you conduct your daily life or constantly return to. In fact, Jerusalem is our home almost against our wills. It is our home because it defines us, whether we like it or not. Yotam Ottolenghi, Jerusalem: A Cookbook


+ 355 Here in this Babylon, that’s festering
forth as much evil as the rest of the earth;
Here where true Love deprecates his worth,
as his powerful mother pollutes everything.
Here where evil is refined and good is cursed,
and tyranny, not honor, has its way;
Here where the Monarchy, in disarray,
blindly attempts to mislead God, and worse.
Here in this labyrinth, where Royalty,
willingly, chooses to succumb before the Gates of Greed and Infamy;
Here in this murky chaos and delirium,
I carry out my tragic destiny,
but never will I forget you, Jerusalem!
William Baer


+ 282 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killer of the prophets and stoner of those sent forth to her,—how often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks together under her wings! But you people did not want it. Jesus Christ, Matthew 23:37


+ 235 The builder of Jerusalem is God, the outcast of Israel he will gather in... Praise God O Jerusalem, laud your God O Zion. Psalms 147:2-12


+ 273 Hi. I’m Spider Jerusalem. I smoke. I take drugs. I drink. I wash every six weeks. I masturbate constantly and fling my steaming poison semen down from my window into your hair and food. I’m a rich and respected columnist for a major metropolitan newspaper. I live with two beautiful women in the city’s most expensive and select community. Being a bastard works. Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan, Vol. 4: The New Scum


+ 210 Religion is a process of turning your skull into a tabernacle, not of going up to Jerusalem once a year. Austin O'Malley


+ 295 For thus saith the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore judgments upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast? / Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and ye shall see their way and their doings: and ye shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it.


+ 233 As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem.


+ 267 O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire in Bethhaccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction.


+ 260 You’re shaking … so am I. It’s because of Jerusalem, isn’t it? One doesn’t go to Jerusalem, one returns to it. That’s one of its mysteries. Elie Wiesel, A Beggar in Jerusalem


+ 330 In desperate attempt to give meaning to life, many turn to religion, because a struggle in the name of a faith is always a justification for some grand action that could transform the world.

‘We are doing God’s work,’ they tell themselves.

And they become devout followers, then evangelists and, finally, fanatics.

They don’t understand that religion was created in order to share the mystery and to worship, not to oppress or convert others. The great manifestation of the miracle of God is life. Tonight, I will weep for you, O Jerusalem, because that understanding of the Divine Unity is about to disappear for the next one thousand years. Paulo Coelho, Manuscript Found in Accra


+ 214 If life is a party, you should be the one throwing it! Talia Carner, Jerusalem Maiden


+ 263 You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you. 2 Chronicles 20:17


+ 281 Let us then, my brethren, endure in hope. Let us devote ourselves, side-by-side with our hoping, so that the God of all the universe, as he beholds our intention, may cleanse us from all sins, fill us with high hopes from what we have in hand, and grant us the change of heart that saves. God has called you, and you have your calling. St. Cyril of Jerusalem

+ 346 Wild eyes were another sign. It is something I have seldom seen — the expression of an ecstatic state — though much is foolishly written of them, as if they grew like Jerusalem artichokes along the road. The eyes are black, right enough, whatever their normal color is; they are black because their perception is condensed to a coal, because the touch and taste and perfume of the lover, the outcry of a dirty word, a welcome river, have been reduced in the heat of passion to a black ash, and this unburnt residue of oxidation, this calyx, replaces the pupil so it no longer receives but sends, and every hair is on end, though perhaps only outspread on a pillow, and the nostrils are flared, mouth agape, cheeks sucked so the whole face seems as squeezed as a juiced fruit; I know, for once Lou went into that wildness while we were absorbing one another, trying to kiss, not merely forcefully, not the skull of our skeleton, but the skull and all the bones on which the essential self is hung, kiss so the shape of the soul is stirred too, that's what is called the ultimate French, the furtherest fuck, when a cock makes a concept cry out and climax; I know, for more than once, though not often, I shuddered into that other region, when a mouth drew me through its generosity into the realm of unravel, and every sensation lay extended as a lake, every tie was loosed, and the glue of things dissolved. I knew I wore the wild look then. The greatest gift you can give another human being is to let them warm you till, in passing beyond pleasure, your defenses fall, your ego surrenders, its structure melts, its towers topple, lies, fancies, vanities, blow away in no wind, and you return, not to the clay you came from — the unfired vessel — but to the original moment of inspiration, when you were the unabbreviated breath of God. William H. Gass, The Tunnel


+ 230 I don't see how you can go too far, in the right direction. Margaret Drabble, Jerusalem the Golden


+ 277 It is more than twenty years since we left the city. This is a serious chunk of time, longer than the years we spent living there. Yet we still think of Jerusalem as our home.

+ 256 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is he, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey. Zechariah 9:9


+ 288 We have peace with Israel. We're actually the last man standing. So there is going to be immense pressure and people asking, 'Why are we having this relationship when it's not benefiting anybody?' Obviously, my answer is you always benefit from peace.

+ 295 Watch your feet when you go to the House of God, and be ready to obey rather than fools should give sacrifice, for they know not that they do evil. Kohelet 4:17


+ 267 Be not rash with your mouth, and let your heart not be hasty to utter a word before God, for God is in heaven, and you are on the earth; therefore, let your words be few. Kohelet 5:1


+ 231 When you pronounce a vow to God, do not delay to pay, for He has no pleasure in fools; that which you vow, pay. Kohelet 5:3


+ 243 It is better that you vow not, than that you vow and do not pay it. Kohelet 5:4


+ 263 Do not allow your mouth to cause sin to your flesh, and say not before the messenger that it is an error; why should God be wroth with your voice and destroy the work of your hands? Kohelet 5:5


+ 265 If you see oppression of the poor and deprivation of justice and righteousness in the province, wonder not about the matter, for the Highest over the high waits, and there are higher ones over them. Kohelet 5:7


+ 257 Be not hasty with your spirit to become wroth, for wrath lies in the bosom of fools. Kohelet 7:9


+ 228 Do not say, "How was it that the former days were better than these?" For not out of wisdom have you asked concerning this. Kohelet 7:10


+ 259 Be not overly righteous, and be not overly wise; why should you bring desolation upon yourself? Kohelet 7:16


+ 239 Be not overly wicked, and be not a fool; why should you die before your time? Kohelet 7:17


+ 259 It is good that you should take hold of this, and also from this you shall not withdraw your hand, for he who fears God will discharge himself of them all. Kohelet 7:18


+ 237 You know that many times you have insulted others. Ecclesiastes 7:22


+ 300 For your heart knows that many times you too cursed others. Kohelet 7:22


+ 261 Inasmuch as the King's word is the rule, and who will say to Him, What are You doing? Kohelet 8:4


+ 259 Go, eat your bread joyfully and drink your wine with a merry heart, for God has already accepted your deeds. Kohelet 9:7


+ 273 At all times, let your garments be white, and let oil not be wanting on your head. Kohelet 9:8


+ 286 Enjoy life with the wife whom you love all the days of the life of your vanity, whom He has given you under the sun, all the days of your vanity, for that is your portion in life and in your toil that you toil under the sun. Kohelet 9:9


+ 283 Whatever your hand attains to do as long as you are with your strength, do; for there is neither deed nor reckoning, neither knowledge nor wisdom in the grave, where you are going. Kohelet 9:10


+ 241 If the spirit of the Ruler ascends upon you, do not leave your place, for a cure assuages great sins. Kohelet 10:4


+ 216 Woe to you, O land whose king is a lad, and your princes eat in the morning. Kohelet 10:16


+ 244 Fortunate are you, O land, whose king is the son of nobles, and your princes eat at the proper time, in might and not in drinking. Kohelet 10:17


+ 249 On joyous occasions, a feast is made, and wine gladdens the living, and money answers everything. Kohelet 10:19


+ 292 Even in your thought, you shall not curse a king, nor in your bedrooms shall you curse a wealthy man, for the bird of the heaven shall carry the voice, and the winged creature will tell the matter. Kohelet 10:20


+ 255 Send forth your bread upon the surface of the water, for after many days you will find it. Kohelet 11:1


+ 247 Give a portion to seven and even to eight, for you do not know what evil will be on the earth. Kohelet 11:2


+ 226 As you do not know what is the way of the wind, just as things enclosed in the full womb; so will you not know God's work, Who does everything. Kohelet 11:5


+ 252 In the morning, sow your seed, and in the evening, do not withhold your hand, for you know not which will succeed, this one or that one, or whether both of them will be equally good. Kohelet 11:6


+ 266 Rejoice, O youth, in your childhood, and let your heart bring you cheer in the days of your youth, and go in the ways of your heart, and in the sight of your eyes, but know that for all these God will bring you to judgment. Kohelet 11:9


+ 290 And remove anger from your heart, and take evil away from your flesh, for childhood and youth are vanity. Kohelet 11:10


+ 265 And remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of evil come, and years arrive, about which you will say, "I have no desire in them." Kohelet 12:1


+ 207 Enjoy Life While You Can


+ 228 You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. Wayne Gretzky


+ 252 Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans. John Lennon


+ 259 Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover. Mark Twain


+ 271 The mind is everything. What you think you become. Buddha


+ 207 You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. Christopher Columbus


+ 238 I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. Maya Angelou


+ 308 Silicon Valley for the most part at that time was still orchards — apricot orchards and prune orchards — and it was really paradise. I remember the air being crystal clear, where you could see from one end of the valley to the other. Steve Jobs — On growing up in Silicon Valley in the early 1960s, Smithsonian Institution, 1995


+ 279 From almost the beginning at Apple we were, for some incredibly lucky reason, fortunate enough to be at the right place at the right time. I had dinner in Seattle at Bill Gates' house a couple of weeks ago. We were both remarking how at one time we were the youngest guys in this business, and now we're the graybeards. Steve Jobs


+ 348 So we went to Atari and said. 'Hey, we've got this amazing thing, even built with some of your parts, and what do you think about funding us? Or we'll give it to you. We just want to do it. Pay our salary, we'll come work for you'. And they said, 'No'. So then we went to Hewlett-Packard, and they said. 'Hey, we don't need you. You haven't got through college yet'. I think this is the start of something really big. Sometimes that first step is the hardest one, and we've just taken it. Steve Jobs


+ 392 I was lucky — I found what I love to do early in life. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and I very much like Bob Dylan's poetry, and we spent a lot of time thinking about a lot of that stuff. This was California. You could get LSD fresh made from Stanford. You could sleep on the beach at night with your girlfriend. California has a sense of experimentation and a sense of openness — openness to new possibilities. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 287 You saw the 1984 commercial. Macintosh was basically this relatively small company in Cupertino, California, taking on the goliath, IBM, and saying, 'Wait a minute, your way is wrong. This is not the way we want computers to go. This is not the legacy we want to leave. This is not what we want our kids to be learning. This is wrong and we are going to show you the right way to do it and here it is. It's called Macintosh and it is so much better. It's going to beat you and you're going to do it'. Steve Jobs — Smithsonian Institution. 1995


+ 285 You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new. Steve Jobs — Inc. 1989


+ 309 That's been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it's worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 1998


+ 288 You can't really predict exactly what will happen, but you can feel the direction that we're going. And that's about as close as you can get. Then you just stand back and get out of the way, and these things take on a life of their own. Steve Jobs — Rolling Stone, 1994


+ 295 You need a very product-oriented culture, even in a technology company. Lots of companies have tons of great engineers and smart people. But ultimately, there needs to be some gravitational force that pulls it all together. Otherwise, you can get great pieces of technology all floating around the universe. Steve Jobs — Newsweek, 2004


+ 276 You can't look back and say, well, gosh, you know, I wish I hadn't have gotten fired, I wish I was there, I wish this, I wish that. It doesn't matter. And so let's go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday. Steve Jobs — All Things Digital D5 conference, 2007


+ 254 The system is that there is no system. That doesn't mean we don't have process. Apple is a very disciplined company, and we have great processes. But that's not what it's about. Process makes you more efficient. Steve Jobs — Newsweek, 2004


+ 294 The subscription model of buying music is bankrupt. I think you could make available the Second Corning in a subscription model and it might not be successful. Steve Jobs — Rolling Stone. 2003


+ 260 I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what's next. Steve Jobs — MSNBC, 2006


+ 278 I used to be the youngest guy in every meeting I was in, and now I'm usually the oldest. And the older I get, the more I'm convinced that motives make so much difference. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 2004


+ 269 Well, you know us. We never talk about future products. There used to be a saying at Apple: Isn't it funny? A ship that leaks from the top. So — I don't wanna perpetuate that. So I really can't say. Steve Jobs — On any information regarding upcoming iPod releases, ABC News. 2005


+ 286 Òî turn realiy interesting ideas and fledgling technologies into a company that can continue to innovate for years, it requires a lot of disciplines. Process makes you more efficient. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 2004


+ 302 Customers think the price is realty good where it is. We're trying to compete with piracy — we're trying to pull people away from piracy and say, 'You can buy these songs legally for a fair price.' But if the price goes up a lot, they'll go back to piracy. Then, everybody loses. The HD revolution is over, it happened. HD won. Everybody wants. Steve Jobs — Apple Special Event keynote. 2010


+ 261 If I give you 20 bricks, you could lay them all on the ground and you'd have 20 bricks on the ground. Or you can lay them on top of each other and start building a wall. We hire people who want to make the best things in the world. Steve Jobs


+ 243 Technology is nothing. What's important is that you have a faith in people, that they're basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, they'll do wonderful things with them. Steve Jobs — Rolling Stone, 1994


+ 245 Do your best at every job. Don't sleep! Success generates more success so be hungry for it. Hire good people with a passion for excellence. Steve Jobs


+ 248 You make some of the best products in the world — but you also make a lot of crap. Get rid of the crappy stuff. Steve Jobs — As said to Nike


+ 296 There were too many people at Apple and in the Apple ecosystem playing the game of, for Apple to win, Microsoft has to lose. And it was clear that you didn't have to play that game because Apple wasn't going to beat Microsoft. Apple didn't have to beat Microsoft. Apple had to remember who Apple was because they'd forgotten who Apple was. Steve Jobs — All Things Digital D5 conference


+ 263 We all tend to reduce reality to symbols, but Superman went out a long time ago. The way you accomplish anything significant is with a team. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 268 Some people say, 'Oh, God, if jobs got run over by a bus, would be in trouble.' And, you know, I think it wouldn't be a party, but there are really capable people at Apple. And the board would have some good choices about who to pick as CEO. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2008


+ 298 Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower. Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything. It's very fortunate if you can work on just one of these in your career-Apple's been very fortunate in that it's introduced a few of these. Steve Jobs — Apple press release for the release of the iPhone, 2007


+ 247 It's really hard to design products by focus groups. A lot of times, people don't know what they want until you show it to them. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 1998


+ 356 What we want to do is make a leapfrog product that is way smarter than any mobile device has ever been, and super-easy to use. This is what iPhone is. OK? So. we're going to reinvent the phone. innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. it's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1998


+ 303 It was a great challenge. Let's make a great phone that we fall in love with. The broader one's understanding of the human experience, the better design we will have. Creativity is Just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things. Steve Jobs — 1996


+ 313 And [innovation] comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don't get on the wrong track or try to do too much. We're always thinking about new markets we could enter, but it's only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 2004


+ 262 It's rare that you see an artist in his 30s or 40s able to really contribute something amazing. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 245 You know, you keep on innovating, you keep on making better stuff. And if you always want the latest and greatest, then you have to buy a new iPod at least once a year. Steve Jobs — MSNBC, 2006


+ 289 When you're a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you're not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You'll know it's there, so you're going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through. Steve Jobs — 1985


+ 300 Don't take it all too seriously. If you want to live your life in a creative way, as an artist, you have to not look back too much. You have to be willing to take whatever you've done and whoever you were and throw them away. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 302 We cook up new products. You never really know if people will love them as much as you do. The most exciting thing is you have butterflies in your stomach in the days leading up to these events. Steve Jobs — CNBC, 2007


+ 323 Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations. Take the iPhone. We had a different enclosure design for this iPhone until way too close to the introduction to ever change it. And I came in one Monday morning, I said, I just don't love this. I can't convince myself to fall in love with this. And this is the most important product we've ever done.' And we pushed the reset button. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2008


+ 251 The design of the Mac wasn't what it looked like, although that was part of it. Primarily, it was how it worked. To design something really well, you have to get it. Steve Jobs


+ 269 The reason we wouldn't make a seven-inch tablet isn't because we don't want to hit a price point, it's because we don't think you can make a great tablet with a seven-inch screen. There's no other company that could make a MacBook Air and the reason is that not only do we control the hardware, but we control the operating system. And it is the intimate interaction between the operating system and the hardware that allows us to do that. There is no intimate interaction between Windows and a Dell notebook. Steve Jobs


+ 259 You've got to start with the customer experience and work back toward the technology — not the other way around. Steve Jobs — Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, 1997


+ 290 There's an old Wayne Gretzky quote that I love. 'I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.' And we've always tried to do that at Apple. Since the very very beginning. And we always will. You know, I've got a plan that could rescue Apple. I can't say any more than that it's the perfect product and the perfect strategy for Apple. But nobody there will listen to me… Steve Jobs— Fortune, 1995


+ 251 Who wants a stylus? You have to get 'em and put 'em away and you lose 'em. Yuck. Nobody wants a stylus. Steve Jobs


+ 284 With our technology, with objects, literally three people in a garage can blow away what 200 people at Microsoft can do. Bill Gates'd be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger. Steve Jobs — The New York Times, 1997


+ 328 I've seen the demonstrations on the Internet about how you can find another person using a Zune and give them a song they can play three times. It takes forever. By the time you've gone through all that, the girl's got up and left! You're much better off to take one of your ear buds out and put it in her ear. Then you're connected with about two feet of headphone cable. Steve Jobs — On competition between the iPod and Microsoft's Zune, NewsWeek, 2006


+ 293 The problem with the Internet startup craze isn't that too many people are starting companies; it's that too many people aren't sticking with it. That's somewhat understandable, because there are many moments that are filled with despair and agony, when you have to fire people and cancel things and deal with very difficult situations. That's when you find out who you are and what your values are. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2000


+ 326 The engineering is long gone in most PC companies. In the consumer electronics companies, they don't understand the software parts of it. And so you really can't make the products that you can make at Apple anywhere else right now. Apple's the only company that has everything under one roof. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2003


+ 298 You think I'm an arrogant expletive who thinks he's above the law, and I think you're a slime bucket who gets most of his facts wrong. Steve Jobs — To New York Times reporter who asked about jobs' health, 2008


+ 223 It'll make your jaw drop. Steve Jobs — On the first NeXT computer. The New York Times, 1989


+ 275 Computers are the first thing to come along since books that will sit there and interact with you endlessly, without judgment. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 313 We're getting to the point where everything's a computer in a different form factor. So what, right? So what if it's built with a computer inside it? It doesn't matter. It's, what is it? How do you use it? You know, how does the consumer approach it? And so who cares what's inside it anymore? Steve Jobs — All Things Digital D5 conference


+ 319 If you look at things I've done in my life, they have an element of democratizing. The Web is an incredible democratizer. A small company can look as large as a big company and be as accessible as a big company on the Web. Big companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars building their distribution channels. And the Web is going to completely neutralize that advantage. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 269 The Apple II peeled off the hardware layer. You didn't need to know about the hardware to use a computer. The next step was the transition from the Apple II to the Macintosh, which peeled off the computer-literacy layer, if you will. In other words, you didn't have to be a hacker or a computer scientist to use one of these. Steve Jobs — Inc., 1989


+ 269 We think basically you watch television to turn your brain off, and you work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on. Steve Jobs— Macworld, 2004


+ 326 You'll see more and more perfection of that — computer as servant But the next thing is going to be computer as a guide or agent. The most compelling reason for most people to buy a computer for the home will be to link it into a nationwide communications network. We're just in the beginning stages of what will be a truly remarkable breakthrough for most people — as remarkable as the telephone. Steve Jobs


+ 260 These technologies can make life easier, can let us touch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birth defect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latest experimental drugs. These things can profoundly influence life. I'm not downplaying that. Steve Jobs


+ 286 Whenever you do any one thing intensely over a period of time, you have to give up other lives you could be living. You have to have a real single-minded kind of tunnel vision if you want to get anything significant accomplished. Especially if the desire is not to be a businessman, but to be a creative person. Steve Jobs — Esquire, 1986


+ 275 Our DMA is as a consumer company — for that individual customer who's voting thumbs up or thumbs down. That's who we think about. And we think that our job is to take responsibility for the complete user experience. And if it's not up to par. it's our fault, plain and simply. We believe that customers are smart, and want objects which are well thought through. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. Steve Jobs


+ 308 I have a great respect for incremental improvement, and I've done that sort of thing in my life, but I've always been attracted to the more revolutionary changes. I don't know why. Because they're harder. They're much more stressful emotionally. And you usually go through a period where everybody tells you that you've completely failed. We don't get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die… And we've all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it, Steve Jobs — Fortune


+ 309 We want to stand at the intersection of computers and humanism. Why music? Well, we love music and it's always good to do something you love. Steve Jobs — Introducing the first iPod, 2001


+ 256 Everyone here has the sense that right now is one of those moments when we are influencing the future. People say you have to have a lot of passion for what you're doing and it's totally true. And the reason is because it's so hard that if you don't, any rational person would give up. Steve Jobs — All Things Digital D5 conference, 2007


+ 283 I'm convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance. It is so hard. You put so much of your life into this thing. Steve Jobs — Computerworld Smithsonian Awards, 1995


+ 303 You've got to be careful choosing what you're going to do. Once you pick something you really care about, and it's a worthwhile thing to do, then you can kind of forget about it and just work at it. The dedication comes naturally. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1998


+ 258 We're just enthusiastic about what we do. It's hard to tell with these Internet startups if they're really interested in building companies or if they're just interested in the money. I can tell you, though: If they don't really want to build a company, they won't luck into it. That's because it's so hard that if you don't have a passion, you'll give up. Steve Jobs — Fortune, 2000


+ 313 Apple is a $30 billion company, yet we've got less than 30 major products. I don't know if that's ever been done before. If you go out and ask people what's wrong with computers today, they'll tell you they're really complicated, they have a zillion cables coming out of the back, they're really big and noisy, they're really ugly, and they take forever to get on the Internet. And so we tried to set out to fix those problems with products like the iMac. Steve Jobs — CNA, 1999


+ 292 Most people have no concept of how an automatic transmission works, yet they know how to drive a car. You don't have to study physics to understand the laws of motion to drive a car. You don't have to understand any of this stuff to use Macintosh. Now, we are selling over 5 million songs a day now. Isn't that unbelievable? That's 58 songs every second of every minute of every hour of every day. Steve Jobs


+ 323 There's nothing that makes my day more than getting an e-mail from some random person in the universe who just bought an iPad over in the UK and tells rne the story about how it's the coolest product they've ever brought home in their lives. That's what keeps me going. Apple turns out many products — a dozen a year; if you count all the minor ones, probably a hundred. Pixar is striving to turn out one a year. But the converse of that is that Pixar's products will still be used fifty years from now, whereas I don't think you'll be using any product Apple brings to market this year fifty years from now. Steve Jobs — TIME, 1999


+ 255 We made the buttons on the screen look so good youl! want to lick them. Steve Jobs — Fortune. 2000


+ 252 Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life… Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Steve Jobs — Stanford University commencement address, 2005


+ 243 You can tell a lot about a person by who his or her heroes are. Steve Jobs — BusinessWeek, 2004


+ 286 Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. Just to try to be as good a father to them as my father was to me. I think about that every day of my life. Steve Jobs — On raising his children, The New York Times, 1997


+ 271 You have no reason not to follow your heart. When I stand before God at the end of my life I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, i used everything you gave me. Steve Jobs


+ 279 The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. Steve Jobs — Stanford University commencement address. 2005


+ 288 You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut. destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life. Steve Jobs — Stanford University commencement address. 2005


+ 295 I'm sorry, it's true. Having children really changes your view on these things. We're born, we live for a brief instant, and we die. It's been happening for a long time. Technology is not changing it much — if at all. Steve Jobs — Wired, 1996


+ 280 Bottom line is, I didn't return to Apple to make a fortune. I've been very lucky in my life and already have one. When I was 25, my net worth was $100 million or so. I decided then that I wasn't going to let it ruin my life. There's no way you could ever spend it all, and I don't view wealth as something that validates my intelligence. Steve Jobs


+ 265 You know, my main reaction to this money thing is that it's humorous, all the attention to it, because it's hardly the most insightful or valuable thing that's happened to me. Steve Jobs — Playboy, 1985


+ 329 I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come. Steve Jobs — Memo to Apple employees, 2011


+ 305 — An oft-used phrase used to unveil products towards the end of Apple presentations Remember The Whole Earth Catalog? The last edition had a photo on the back cover of a remote country road you might find yourself on while hitchhiking up to Oregon. It was a beautiful shot, and it had a caption that really grabbed me. It said: 'Stay hungry. Stay foolish.' It wasn't an ad for anything — just one of Stewart Brand's profound statements. It's wisdom. 'Stay hungry. Stay foolish.' Steve Jobs — Fortune, 1998


+ 236 Young, Wild and Free


+ 189 Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.


+ 318 The engineering is long gone in most PC companies. In the consumer electronics companies, they don't understand the software parts of it. And so you really can't make the products that you can make at Apple anywhere else right now. Apple's the only company that has everything under one roof. Steve Jobs


+ 281 Biology is a software process. Our bodies are made up of trillions of cells, each governed by this process. You and I are walking around with outdated software running in our bodies, which evolved in a very different era. Ray Kurzweil


+ 310 Whether it's watching a $4,000 laptop fall off the conveyor belt at airport security, contending with a software conflict that corrupted your file management system, or begging your family to stop opening those virus-carrying 'greeting cards' attached to emails, all computer owners are highly leveraged and highly vulnerable technology investors. Douglas Rushkoff


+ 316 The software program for motherhood is impossible to fully download into the male brain. You give them two tasks and they're like, 'I have to change the baby and get the dry cleaning?' Allison Pearson


+ 229 Certainly there's a phenomenon around open source. You know free software will be a vibrant area. There will be a lot of neat things that get done there. Bill Gates


+ 248 Free software is software that respects your freedom and the social solidarity of your community. So it's free as in freedom. Richard Stallman


+ 306 Microsoft Research has a thing called the Sense Cam that, as you walk around, it's taking photos all the time. And the software will filter and find the ones that are interesting without having to think, 'Let's get out the camera and get that shot.' You just have that, and software helps you pick what you want. Bill Gates


+ 291 Proprietary software tends to have malicious features. The point is with a proprietary program, when the users don't have the source code, we can never tell. So you must consider every proprietary program as potential malware. Richard Stallman


+ 330 Since when has the world of computer software design been about what people want? This is a simple question of evolution. The day is quickly coming when every knee will bow down to a silicon fist, and you will all beg your binary gods for mercy. Bill Gates


+ 218 Thank you for a wonderful year


+ 200 Thank you for a wonderful month


+ 179 Thank you for a wonderful week


+ 186 Thank you for a wonderful day


+ 204 Thank you for a wonderful hour


+ 194 Thank you for a wonderful moment


+ 242 Software comes from heaven when you have good hardware. Ken Olsen


+ 283 I have this hope that there is a better way. Higher-level tools that actually let you see the structure of the software more clearly will be of tremendous value. Guido van Rossum


+ 307 A lot of people assume that creating software is purely a solitary activity where you sit in an office with the door closed all day and write lots of code. Bill Gates


+ 289 Some people, through luck and skill, end up with a lot of assets. If you're good at kicking a ball, writing software, investing in stocks, it pays extremely well. Bill Gates


+ 248 Every young person gets so excited about new software packages and new technology. John Lasseter


+ 255 You can mass-produce hardware; you cannot mass-produce software - you cannot mass-produce the human mind. Michio Kaku

+ 263 A Good Life is when you smile often, dream big, laugh a lot and realize how blessed you are for what you have.


+ 228 Every morning you have two choices: Continue to sleep with dreams or Wake up and chase your dreams. The choice is yours...


+ 224 The choice is yours... Wake up and chase your dreams.


+ 158 Why not you?


+ 252 Why not you to do something for work that you love?


+ 185 Why not you to have a healthy body?


+ 245 Why not you to have healthy love?


+ 199 Why not you to be, have or do anything you have ever dreamed?


+ 201 The truth is that we all deserving. So why not you?


+ 194 Believe you can and you are halfway there.


+ 202 Be the best version of you.


+ 272 Success occurs when your dreams get bigger then your excuses.


+ 250 I hope you always find a reason to smile.


+ 304 So when you see the next consumer mobile or internet product with millions of engaged users, let’s stop asking about their business model expecting a clever answer – they’ll have dozens of off-the-shelf solutions to choose from – and instead, let’s start asking about the parts of their business that aren’t commoditized yet.


+ 254 You should aim to hit 100 million active users, and get an off-the-shelf monetization solution later.

+ 224 You are only given a little spark of madness. You must not lose it. Robin Williams


+ 268 For me, comedy starts as a spew, a kind of explosion, and then you sculpt it from there, if at all. It comes out of a deeper, darker side.

+ 223 As long as you live, keep learning how to live. Lucius Annaeus Seneca

+ 243 Youth is wasted on the young...


+ 152 How do you feel right now?


+ 283 I love you, but I'm mad at you is one of the most freeing, important things you can say in a stable relationship. Does that make sense? To know that you have the ability and the right to be mad at someone and know that it doesn't mean things are over, that it doesn't mean things are irreparable. That it just means I'm mad, but God, I love you. I love you. Now leave me alone.

+ 329 I'd rather be around a passionate nerd than a non-passionate cool person. Because if you lack passion, your soul is diminishing by the second. You have to be passionate about something. Call it obsessed or whatever you want, but be obsessed about something. Obsessed people care. I'm passionate about so many things, it becomes an issue at certain points, but at least you have the ability to feel that much about something. Matt Cohen


+ 258 If you rely exclusively on the advice of others, you may make terrible mistakes. Your heart knows what you need. Other people have other agendas. Brian L. Weiss

+ 231 You can ask the universe for all the signs you want, but ultimately, we see what we want to see when we're ready to see it.

where do you feed your sheep?
Where do you let them rest at noon?
Why should I look for you near your friend’s sheep,
like a woman who wears a veil?
Song of Solomon 1:7


+ 279 You are the most beautiful of women.
Surely you know to follow the sheep
and feed your young goats
near the shepherds’ tents.

+ 271 Among the young women, my darling is like a lily among thorns! Song of Solomon 2:2


+ 313 Among the young men, my lover
is like an apple tree in the woods!
I enjoy sitting in his shadow;
his fruit is sweet to my taste.
Song of Solomon 2:3


+ 330 My lover is like a gazelle or a young deer. Look, he stands behind our wall peeking through the windows, looking through the blinds.
Song of Solomon 2:9


+ 320 There are young figs on the fig trees, and the blossoms on the vines smell sweet.
Get up, my darling; let’s go away, my beautiful one.
Song of Solomon 2:13


+ 319 O my dove, in the clefts of the rock,
in the crannies of the cliff,
let me see your face,
let me hear your voice,
for your voice is sweet,
and your face is lovely.
Song of Solomon 2:14


+ 304 Until the day breathes
and the shadows flee,
turn, my beloved, be like a gazelle
or a young stag on cleft mountains.
Song of Solomon 2:17


+ 297 The watchmen found me as they patrolled the city,
so I asked, Have you seen the one I love?
Song of Solomon 3:3


+ 310 How beautiful you are, my darling!
Oh, you are beautiful!
Your eyes behind your veil are like doves.
Your hair is like a flock of goats streaming down Mount Gilead.
Song of Solomon 4:1


+ 313 Your teeth are white like newly sheared sheep just coming from their bath.
Each one has a twin, and none of them is missing.
Song of Solomon 4:2


+ 347 Your lips are like red silk thread,
and your mouth is lovely.
Your cheeks behind your veil are like slices of a pomegranate.
Song of Solomon 4:3


+ 286 Your neck is like David’s tower,
built with rows of stones.
A thousand shields hang on its walls;
each shield belongs to a strong soldier.
Song of Solomon 4:4


+ 266 Your breasts are like two fawns,
like twins of a gazelle,
feeding among the lilies.
Song of Solomon 4:5


+ 291 My darling, everything about you is beautiful,
and there is nothing at all wrong with you.
Song of Solomon 4:7


+ 276 My sister, my bride,
you have thrilled my heart;
you have thrilled my heart
with a glance of your eyes,
with one sparkle from your necklace.
Song of Solomon 4:9


+ 322 Your love is so sweet, my sister, my bride.
Your love is better than wine,
and your perfume smells better than any spice.
Song of Solomon 4:10


+ 291 My bride, your lips drip honey;
honey and milk are under your tongue.
Your clothes smell like the cedars of Lebanon.
Song of Solomon 4:11


+ 308 My sister, my bride, you are like a garden locked up,
like a walled-in spring, a closed-up fountain.
Song of Solomon 4:12


+ 314 Your limbs are like an orchard
of pomegranates with all the best fruit,
filled with flowers and nard,
Song of Solomon 4:13


+ 324 You are like a garden fountain— a well of fresh water flowing down from the mountains of Lebanon.
Song of Solomon 4:15


+ 294 Promise me, women of Jerusalem,
if you find my lover,
tell him I am weak with love.
Song of Solomon 5:8


+ 292 How is your lover better than other lovers,
most beautiful of women?
How is your lover better than other lovers?
Why do you want us to promise this?
Song of Solomon 5:9


+ 327 Where has your lover gone,
most beautiful of women?
Which way did your lover turn?
We will look for him with you.
Song of Solomon 6:1


+ 311 My darling, you are as beautiful as the city of Tirzah,
as lovely as the city of Jerusalem,
like an army flying flags.
Song of Solomon 6:4


+ 282 Turn your eyes from me,
because they excite me too much.
Your hair is like a flock of goats
streaming down Mount Gilead.
Song of Solomon 6:5


+ 309 Your teeth are white like sheep
just coming from their bath;
each one has a twin,
and none of them is missing.
Song of Solomon 6:6


+ 276 Your cheeks behind your veil are like slices of a pomegranate.
Song of Solomon 6:7


+ 299 There may be sixty queens and eighty slave women and so many girls you cannot count them,
Song of Solomon 6:8


+ 313 But there is only one like my dove, my perfect one.
She is her mother’s only daughter,

The young women saw her and called her happy;
the queens and the slave women also praised her.

Song of Solomon 6:12


+ 297 Come back, come back, woman of Shulam.
Come back, come back,
so we may look at you!

Why do you want to look at the woman of Shulam
as you would at the dance of two armies?
Song of Solomon 6:13


+ 327 Your feet are beautiful in sandals,
you daughter of a prince.
Your round thighs are like jewels shaped by an artist.

like twins of a gazelle.
Song of Solomon 7:3


+ 275 Your neck is like an ivory tower.
Your eyes are like the pools in Heshbon near the gate of Bath Rabbim.
Your nose is like the mountain of Lebanon that looks down on Damascus.
Song of Solomon 7:4


+ 299 Your head is like Mount Carmel,
and your hair is like purple cloth;
the king is captured in its folds.
Song of Solomon 7:5


+ 295 You are beautiful and pleasant;
my love, you are full of delights.
Song of Solomon 7:6


+ 257 You are tall like a palm tree,
and your breasts are like its bunches of fruit.

Let your breasts be like bunches of grapes,
the smell of your breath like apples,

Let this wine go down sweetly for my lover;
may it flow gently past the lips and teeth.

+ 305 Let’s go early to the vineyards
and see if the buds are on the vines.
Let’s see if the blossoms have already opened
and if the pomegranates have bloomed.
There I will give you my love.
Song of Solomon 7:12


+ 328 The mandrake flowers give their sweet smell,
and all the best fruits are at our gates.
I have saved them for you, my lover, the old delights and the new.
Song of Solomon 7:13


+ 290 I wish you were like my brother
who fed at my mother’s breasts.
If I found you outside,
I would kiss you,
and no one would look down on me.
Song of Solomon 8:1


+ 303 I would lead you and bring you
to my mother’s house;
she is the one who taught me.
I would give you a drink of spiced wine from my pomegranates.

leaning on her lover?
I woke you under the apple tree where you were born;
there your mother gave birth to you.
Song of Solomon 8:5


+ 386 Put me like a seal on your heart,
like a seal on your arm.
Love is as strong as death;
jealousy is as strong as the grave.
Love bursts into flames
and burns like a hot fire.

+ 290 You who live in the gardens,

let me hear it.
Song of Solomon 8:13


+ 382 Hurry, my lover,
be like a gazelle
or a young deer
on the mountains where spices grow.
Song of Solomon 8:14


+ 173 May I ask you a question?


+ 181 Same to you!


+ 192 You wanna talk about it?


+ 190 Did I get you right?


+ 177 It does you credit.


+ 212 Mind your own business.


+ 231 A little of what you fancy does you good.


+ 163 As you sow so shall you mow.

+ 215 What's your best childhood memory?


+ 187 It's up to you.


+ 351 If you are resolutely determined to make a lawyer of yourself, the thing is more than half done already. It is but a small matter whether you read with anyone or not. I did not read with anyone. Get the books, and read and study them till you understand them in their principal features; and that is the main thing. It is of no consequence to be in a large town while you are reading. I read at New Salem, which never had three hundred people living in it. The books, and your capacity for understanding them, are just the same in all places.... Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed, is more important than any other one thing. Abraham Lincoln


+ 234 It’s not about the victory, it's about who you defeat.


+ 260 If you want in the game, you have to wear the uniform.


+ 234 You think you want in on the family business?


+ 231 Do I believe in mentoring? Anyone worth having as a mentor would eat their young.


+ 288 Hey, hey, stay positive, pal. Most people, they lose,they whine and quit. But you got to be there for the turns. Everybody's got good luck, everybody's got bad luck. Don't run when you lose. Don't whine when it hurts. It's like the first grade, Jerry. Nobody likes a crybaby.


+ 260 Stop telling lies about me and I'll stop telling the truth about you.


+ 270 I tell you, the government's worse than a wife. They got all the power, they got half the money. Now they're working on getting the other half. Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

+ 267 I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you. Friedrich Nietzsche


+ 337 Above all, don't lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love. Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov


+ 273 If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people. Virginia Woolf

+ 248 Don't cry, I'm sorry to have deceived you so much, but that's how life is. Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita


+ 295 Love is a verb, not a noun. It is active. Love is not just feelings of passion and romance. It is behavior. If a man lies to you, he is behaving badly and unlovingly toward you. He is disrespecting you and your relationship. The words “I love you” are not enough to make up for that. Don’t kid yourself that they are. Susan Forward, When Your Lover Is a Liar: Healing the Wounds of Deception and Betrayal


+ 259 Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies. Oliver Goldsmith


+ 222 I guess sometimes you have to lie to find the truth. Scott Westerfeld, Extras


+ 534 “Why aren't you in school? I see you every day wandering around." "Oh, they don't miss me," she said. "I'm antisocial, they say. I don't mix. It's so strange. I'm very social indeed. It all depends on what you mean by social, doesn't it? Social to me means talking to you about things like this." She rattled some chestnuts that had fallen off the tree in the front yard. "Or talking about how strange the world is. Being with people is nice. But I don't think it's social to get a bunch of people together and then not let them talk, do you? An hour of TV class, an hour of basketball or baseball or running, another hour of transcription history or painting pictures, and more sports, but do you know, we never ask questions, or at least most don't; they just run the answers at you, bing, bing, bing, and us sitting there for four more hours of film-teacher. That's not social to me at all. It's a lot of funnels and lot of water poured down the spout and out the bottom, and them telling us it's wine when it's not. They run us so ragged by the end of the day we can't do anything but go to bed or head for a Fun Park to bully people around, break windowpanes in the Window Smasher place or wreck cars in the Car Wrecker place with the big steel ball. Or go out in the cars and race on the streets, trying to see how close you can get to lampposts, playing 'chicken' and 'knock hubcaps.' I guess I'm everything they say I am, all right. I haven't any friends. That's supposed to prove I'm abnormal. But everyone I know is either shouting or dancing around like wild or beating up one another. Do you notice how people hurt each other nowadays?” Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

+ 277 At times to be silent is to lie. You will win because you have enough brute force. But you will not convince. For to convince you need to persuade. And in order to persuade you would need what you lack: Reason and Right. Miguel de Unamuno

+ 351 If a man, who says he loves you, won’t tell you the details of a private conversation between him and another woman you can be sure he is not protecting your heart. He is protecting himself and the women he has feelings for. Wise women simply see things as they are, not as their low self-esteem allows. Shannon L. Alder

+ 265 “Do you know a cure for me?" Why yes," he said, "I know a cure for everything. Salt water." Salt water?" I asked him. Yes," he said, "in one way or the other. Sweat, or tears, or the salt sea.” Karen Blixen, Seven Gothic Tales


+ 245 You know you are truly alive when you’re living among lions. Karen Blixen, Out of Africa


+ 274 When you have a great and difficult task, something perhaps almost impossible, if you only work a little at a time, every day a little, suddenly the work will finish itself. Karen Blixen


+ 230 All sorrows can be borne if you can put them into a story. Karen Blixen

+ 287 There is a particular hapiness in giving a man whom you like very much, good food that you have cooked yourself. Karen Blixen, Out of Africa


+ 340 The real difference between God and human beings, he thought, was that God cannot stand continuance. No sooner has he created a season of a year, or a time of the day, than he wishes for something quite different, and sweeps it all away. No sooner was one a young man, and happy at that, than the nature of things would rush one into marriage, martyrdom or old age. And human beings cleave to the existing state of things. All their lives they are striving to hold the moment fast....Their art itself is nothing but the attempt to catch by all means the one particular moment, one light, the momentary beauty of one woman or one flower, and make it everlasting. Karen Blixen, Seven Gothic Tales


+ 273 Up in this air you breathed easily, drawing in a vital assurance and lightness of heart. In the highlands you woke up in the morning and thought: Here I am, where I ought to be. Karen Blixen, Out of Africa


+ 292 The Cicada sing an endless song in the long grass, smells run along the earth and falling stars run over the sky, like tears over a cheek. You are the privileged person to whom everything is taken. The Kings of Tarshish shall bring gifts. Karen Blixen, Out of Africa


+ 299 It is a sad hardship and slavery to people who live in towns, that in their movements they know of one dimension only; they walk along the line as if they were led on a string. The transition from the line to the plane into the two dimensions, when you wander across a field or through a wood, is a splendid liberation to the slaves, like the French Revolution. But in the air you are taken into the full freedom of the three dimensions; after long ages of exile and dreams the homesick heart throws itself into the arms of space. Karen Blixen, Out of Africa


+ 281 It is impossible that a town will not play a part in your life, it does not even make much difference whether you have more good or bad things to say of it, it draws your mind to it, by a mental law of gravitation. Karen Blixen, Out of Africa


+ 234 When you have caught the rhythm of Africa, you find out that it is the same in all her music. Karen Blixen, Out of Africa


+ 281 Then Martine said: So you will be poor now all your life, Babette? Poor? said Babette. She smiled as if to herself. No, I shall never be poor. I told you that I am a great artist. A great artist, Mesdames, is never poor.We have something, Mesdames, of which other people know nothing. Karen Blixen


+ 261 The views were immensely wide. Everything that you saw made for greatness and freedom, and unequealled nobility. Karen Blixen, Out of Africa


+ 308 It is when one begins to lose the consciousness of freedom, and when the idea of necessity enters the world at all, when there is any hurry or strain anywhere, a letter to be written or a train to catch, when you have got to work, to make the horses of the dream gallop, or to make the rifles go off, that the dream is declining, and turning into the nightmare, which belongs to the poorest and most vulgar class of dreams. Karen Blixen, Out of Africa


+ 294 It is more than their land that you take away from the people whose native land you take. It is their past as well, their roots and their identity. If you take away the things that they have been used to see, and will be expecting to see, you may, in a way, as well take out their eyes. Karen Blixen

+ 273 It sounds strange to say it, but you can be in a war zone and have a lot of fun. Even though war is essentially pain on all sides, human beings have the capacity to enjoy themselves. The soldiers are mostly young people, full of enthusiasm and energy, and that's an exciting thing for an old guy like me. Bruce Cockburn


+ 276 I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them … a world without rules or controls, borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you. The Matrix


+ 380 Unfortunately, no one can be told what The Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.


+ 267 I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you. A world without rules or controls, borders or boundaries. A world where anything is possible. Where we go from there is a choice I leave to you. The Matrix


+ 281 What is real? How do you define real? If you're talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then real is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain. Morpheus


+ 287 Neo, sooner or later you're going to realize, just as I did, that there's a difference between knowing the path, and walking the path. Morpheus


+ 285 I'm trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it. Morpheus


+ 242 Have you ever had a dream Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world, and the real world? Morpheus


+ 182 Don't think you are, know you are. Morpheus


+ 323 Neo, I'm not afraid anymore. The Oracle told me that I would fall in love and that that man... the man that I loved would be The One. So you see, you can't be dead. You can't be... because I love you. You hear me? I love you. Trinity


+ 238 I know what you're thinking, 'cause right now I'm thinking the same thing. Actually, I've been thinking it ever since I got here: Why oh why didn't I take the BLUE pill? Cypher


+ 314 As you can see, we've had our eye on you for some time now, Mr. Anderson. It seems that you've been living two lives. In one life, you're Thomas A. Anderson, program writer for a respectable software company. You have a Social Security number, you pay your taxes, and you... help your landlady carry out her garbage. The other life is lived in computers, where you go by the hacker alias "Neo" and are guilty of virtually every computer crime we have a law for. One of these lives has a future, and one of them does not. Agent Smith


+ 345 Have you ever stood and stared at it, marveled at its beauty, its genius? Billions of people just living out their lives, oblivious. Did you know that the first Matrix was designed to be a perfect human world, where none suffered, where everyone would be happy? It was a disaster. No one would accept the program, entire crops were lost. Some believed we lacked the programming language to describe your perfect world, but I believe that, as a species, human beings define their reality through misery and suffering. The perfect world was a dream that your primitive cerebrum kept trying to wake up from. Which is why the Matrix was redesigned to this, the peak of your civilization. I say your civilization, because as soon as we started thinking for you it really became our civilization, which is of course what this is all about. Evolution, Morpheus, evolution. Like the dinosaur. Look out that window. You've had your time. The future is our world, Morpheus. The future is our time. Agent Smith


+ 340 I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops an equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet; you are a plague and we are the cure. Agent Smith


+ 302 I'm going to be honest with you. I hate this place. This zoo, this prison, this reality, whatever you want to call it. I can't stand it any longer. It's the smell — if there is such a thing — I feel saturated by it. I can taste your stink and every time I do, I fear I have somehow been infected by it — it's repulsive! Isn't it? I must get out of here. I must get free...and in this mind is the key, my key. Once Zion is destroyed, there is no need for me to be here. Do you understand?! I need the codes, I have to get inside Zion and you have to tell me how. You're going to tell me, or you're going to die! Agent Smith


+ 226 The answer is out there, Neo, and it's looking for you, and it will find you if you want it to.


+ 194 Free your mind.


+ 256 Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.


+ 236 I can only show you the door, you have to walk through it.


+ 227 In a world of 1s and 0s... are you a zero, or The One?


+ 375 Zion, hear me! It is true, what many of you have heard. The machines have gathered an army and as I speak, that army is drawing nearer to our home. Believe me when I say we have a difficult time ahead of us. But if we are to be prepared for it, we must first shed our fear of it. I stand here, before you now, truthfully unafraid. Why? Because I believe something you do not? No, I stand here without fear because I remember. I remember that I am here not because of the path that lies before me but because of the path that lies behind me. I remember that for 100 years we have fought these machines. I remember that for 100 years they have sent their armies to destroy us, and after a century of war I remember that which matters most... We are still here! Today, let us send a message to that army. Tonight, let us shake this cave. Tonight, let us tremble these halls of earth, steel, and stone, let us be heard from red core to black sky. Tonight, let us make them remember, this is Zion, and we are not afraid! Morpheus


+ 215 You see, he's just a man. Merovingian


+ 332 The first Matrix I designed was quite naturally perfect, it was a work of art, flawless, sublime. A triumph equaled only by its monumental failure. The inevitability of its doom is apparent to me now as a consequence of the imperfection inherent in every human being. Thus, I redesigned it based on your history to more accurately reflect the varying grotesqueries of your nature. However, I was again frustrated by failure. I have since come to understand that the answer eluded me because it required a lesser mind, or perhaps a mind less bound by the parameters of perfection. Thus, the answer was stumbled upon by another, an intuitive program, initially created to investigate certain aspects of the human psyche. If I am the father of the Matrix, she would undoubtedly be its mother. The Architect


+ 301 Which brings us at last to the moment of truth, wherein the fundamental flaw is ultimately expressed, and the Anomaly revealed as both beginning and end. There are two doors. The door to your right leads to the Source and the salvation of Zion. The door to your left leads back to the Matrix, to her and to the end of your species. As you adequately put, the problem is choice. But we already know what you are going to do, don't we? Already I can see the chain reaction: the chemical precursors that signal the onset of an emotion, designed specifically to overwhelm logic and reason. An emotion that is already blinding you to the simple and obvious truth: she is going to die and there is nothing you can do to stop it. Hope. It is the quintessential human delusion, simultaneously the source of your greatest strength, and your greatest weakness. The Architect


+ 235 Damnit, Morpheus, not everyone believes what you believe.


+ 187 Free your mind.


+ 254 The program "Smith" has grown beyond your control. Soon he will spread through this city, as he spread through The Matrix. You cannot stop him. But I can.


+ 317 Only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love! You must be able to see it, Mr. Anderson! You must know it by now! You can't win! It's pointless to keep fighting! Why, Mr. Anderson?! Why? WHY DO YOU PERSIST?


+ 261 The program "Smith" has grown beyond your control. Soon he will spread through this city, as he spread through The Matrix. You cannot stop him. But I can. Neo


+ 239 You were right, Smith. You were always right. It was inevitable. Neo


+ 273 Everything that has a beginning has an end. I see the end coming. I see the darkness spreading. I see death... and you are all that stands in his way. The Oracle


+ 180 What do you want?


+ 219 There is some fiction in your truth, and some truth in your fiction. To know the truth, you must risk everything. Neo


+ 199 Move from your head to your heart!


+ 201 Open your eyes and smile


+ 228 Don't believe. Everything you hear. There are only three side of story, yours, theirs and the truth.


+ 241 Decide. That you want it more than you afraid of it. Bill Cosby


+ 303 Without the hard little bits of marble which are called 'facts' or 'data' one cannot compose a mosaic; what matters, however, are not so much the individual bits, but the successive patterns into which you arrange them, then break them up and rearrange them. Arthur Koestler


+ 303 Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. This idea is not novel. Men have been led to it long ago by instinct or reason; it has been expressed in many ways, and in many places, in the history of old and new. We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who derives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians and in many hints and statements of thinkers of the present time. Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic! If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic — and this we know it is, for certain — then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature. Nikola Tesla


+ 279 There is something within me that might be illusion as it is often case with young delighted people, but if I would be fortunate to achieve some of my ideals, it would be on the behalf of the whole of humanity. If those hopes would become fulfilled, the most exciting thought would be that it is a deed of a Serb. Nikola Tesla


+ 312 In one of the sinking spells [due to Cholera] which was thought to be the last, my father rushed into the room. I still see his pallid face as he tried to cheer me in tones belying his assurance. "Perhaps," I said, "I may get well if you will let me study engineering." "You will go to the best technical institution in the world," he solemnly replied, and I knew that he meant it. A heavy weight was lifted from my mind.… I came to life like Lazarus to the utter amazement of everybody. Nikola Tesla


+ 264 As an eminent pioneer in the realm of high frequency currents... I congratulate you on the great successes of your life's work. Nikola Tesla


+ 233 I do not think you can name many great inventions that have been made by married men. Nikola Tesla


+ 331 With ideas it is like with dizzy heights you climb: At first they cause you discomfort and you are anxious to get down, distrustful of your own powers; but soon the remoteness of the turmoil of life and the inspiring influence of the altitude calm your blood; your step gets firm and sure and you begin to look - for dizzier heights. Nikola Tesla


+ 230 Business and life are like a bank account-you can’t take out more than you put in. William Feather


+ 245 The way to become rich is to put all your eggs in one basket and then watch that basket. Andrew Carnegie


+ 248 Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones. Benjamin Franklin


+ 273 The financial markets generally are unpredictable. So that one has to have different scenarios... The idea that you can actually predict what's going to happen contradicts my way of looking at the market. George Soros


+ 229 Do you know the only thing that gives me pleasure? It's to see my dividends coming in. John D. Rockefeller


+ 245 The human brain has 100 billion neurons, each neuron connected to 10 thousand other neurons. Sitting on your shoulders is the most complicated object in the known universe. Michio Kaku

+ 240 Study hard what interests you the most in the most undisciplined, irreverent and original manner possible. Richard P. Feynman


+ 270 You have no responsibility to live up to what other people think you ought to accomplish. I have no responsibility to be like they expect me to be. It's their mistake, not my failing. Richard P. Feynman, Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!: Adventures of a Curious Character


+ 311 Fall in love with some activity, and do it! Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn't matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough. Work as hard and as much as you want to on the things you like to do the best. Don't think about what you want to be, but what you want to do. Keep up some kind of a minimum with other things so that society doesn't stop you from doing anything at all. Richard P. Feynman


+ 303 I have a friend who's an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don't agree with very well. He'll hold up a flower and say "look how beautiful it is," and I'll agree. Then he says "I as an artist can see how beautiful this is but you as a scientist take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing," and I think that he's kind of nutty. First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me too, I believe. Although I may not be quite as refined aesthetically as he is ... I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty. I mean it's not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there's also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. It adds a question: does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower. It only adds. I don't understand how it subtracts. Richard P. Feynman


+ 228 The first principle is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool. Richard P. Feynman

Let the words run through your veins and let the colors fill your mind until there is nothing left to do but explode. There are no wrong answers. Inspiration is everything. Sit back, relax, and take it all in. Now, go out and create something. Jac Vanek

+ 233 What Indigos are REALLY looking for is mutual respect/honor and energetic exchange that comes through high level Tantra, the art of conscious loving. Through Tantra you and your partner can move to elevated states of awareness/consciousness and truly “know thyself” in ways that nothing else can touch. It is one of the hidden keys in my book “Kryahgenetics: The Simple Secrets of Human Alchemy. ” Tantra is truly the bridge to higher consciousness, and that is precisely why organized religion has tried to make all sorts of rules and taboos to regulate it. They have deliberately created so much guilt and lies about sexuality to guarantee that you will not be free to explore and express your True Nature, the authentic God or Goddess within!


+ 222 First Wave Indigos, in their heart of hearts, know this to be true, and long for a “soul mate” …one they love and trust to explore “the God/Goddess within” and become “one” with their partner. Magick happens when two people become one …..one heart….one soul…and if you know how to command and conduct orgone energy, (the power of the Orgasm…..the power of life itself) you can change your reality and the matrix of the entire hologram! Orgone energy laced with Divine Love is THE MOST POWERFUL ENERGY/FORCE IN THE UNIVERSE! It is the power to create ANYTHING and also can be used for destruction!


+ 298 The Powers That Be know this, and THAT is one of the main reasons you have been kept so isolated and so disconnected from those from the Realm that you love. If your “soul mates” from the Realm came into your life, and you started practicing Creation and Re-Creation through Tantra…..this world would be a different movie! We would change the social structure, extinguish the tyrants, and bring balance, peace and life force back to the earth and let Justice and Karma reign once more. Then we would head off to the cosmic Bahamas for some R&R before going back to the Realm for our next assignment.

+ 210 God said, Behold, I have given you every seedbearing plant on the face of the earth, and every tree that has seedbearing fruit. It shall be to you for food. Bereshit 1:29


+ 192 God gave the man a commandment, saying, You may definitely eat from every tree of the garden. Bereshit 2:16


+ 182 But from the Tree of Knowledge of good and evil, do not eat, for on the day you eat from it, you will definitely die. Bereshit 2:17


+ 207 The serpent was the most cunning of all the wild beasts that God had made. The serpent asked the woman, Did God really say that you may not eat from any of the trees of the garden? Bereshit 3:1


+ 198 But of the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the garden, God said, Do not eat it, and do not even touch it, or else you will die. Bereshit 3:3


+ 158 The serpent said to the woman, You will certainly not die! Bereshit 3:4


+ 181 Really, God knows that on the day you eat from it, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil. Bereshit 3:5


+ 173 God called to the man, and He said, Where are you trying to hide? Bereshit 3:9


+ 188 I heard Your voice in the garden, replied the man, and I was afraid because I was naked, so I hid. Bereshit 3:10


+ 172 God asked, Who told you that you are naked? Did you eat from the tree which I commanded you not to eat? Bereshit 3:11


+ 176 The man replied, The woman that you gave to be with me - she gave me what I ate from the tree. Bereshit 3:12


+ 168 God said to the woman, What is this that you have done? The woman replied, The serpent seduced me and I ate it. Bereshit 3:13


+ 213 God said to the serpent, Because you did this, cursed are you more than all the livestock and all the wild beasts. On your belly you shall crawl, and dust you shall eat, all the days of your life. Bereshit 3:14


+ 161 I will plant hatred between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike you in the head, and you will strike him in the heel. Bereshit 3:15


+ 197 To the woman He said, I will greatly increase your anguish and your pregnancy. It will be with anguish that you will give birth to children. Your passion will be to your husband, and he will dominate you. Bereshit 3:16


+ 229 To Adam He said, You listened to your wife, and ate from the tree regarding which I specifically gave you orders, saying, Do not eat from it. The ground will therefore be cursed because of you. You will derive food from it with anguish all the days of your life. Bereshit 3:17


+ 174 It will bring forth thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the grass of the field. Bereshit 3:18


+ 195 By the sweat of your brow you will eat bread. Finally you will return to the ground, for it was from the ground that you were taken. You are dust, and to dust you shall return. Bereshit 3:19


+ 176 God said to Cain, Why are you so furious? Why are you depressed? Bereshit 4:6


+ 173 If you do good, will there not be special privilege? And if you do not do good, sin is crouching at the door. It lusts after you, but you can dominate it. Bereshit 4:7


+ 203 God asked Cain, Where is your brother Abel? I do not know, replied Cain. Am I my brother's keeper? Bereshit 4:9


+ 173 God said, What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood is screaming to Me from the ground. Bereshit 4:10


+ 191 Now you are cursed from the ground that opened its mouth to take your brother's blood from your hand. Bereshit 4:11


+ 202 When you work the ground, it will no longer give you of its strength. You will be restless and isolated in the world. Bereshit 4:12


+ 238 Behold, today You have banished me from the face of the earth, and I am to be hidden from Your face. I am to be restless and isolated in the world, and whoever finds me will kill me. Bereshit 4:14


+ 175 Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with compartments, and you shall caulk it both inside and outside with pitch. Bereshit 6:14


+ 177 And this is the size you shall make it: three hundred cubits the length of the ark, fifty cubits its breadth, and thirty cubits its height. Bereshit 6:15


+ 192 You shall make a skylight for the ark, and to a cubit you shall finish it to the top, and the entrance of the ark you shall place in its side; you shall make it with bottom compartments, second story compartments, and third story compartments. Bereshit 6:16


+ 181 And I will set up My covenant with you, and you shall come into the ark, you and your sons, and your wife and your sons' wives with you. Bereshit 6:18


+ 176 And of all living things of all flesh, two of each you shall bring into the ark to preserve alive with you; they shall be male and female. Bereshit 6:19


+ 194 Of the fowl after its kind and of the animals after their kind, of every creeping thing upon the ground after its kind; two of each shall come to you to preserve alive. Bereshit 6:20


+ 176 And you, take for yourself of every food that is eaten and gather it in to you, and it shall be for you and for them to eat. Bereshit 6:21


+ 224 And the Lord said to Noah, Come into the ark, you and all your household, for it is you that I have seen as a righteous man before Me in this generation. Bereshit 7:1


+ 188 Of all the clean animals you shall take for yourself seven pairs, a male and its mate, and of the animals that are not clean, two, a male and its mate. Bereshit 7:2


+ 182 Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons, and your sons wives with you. Bereshit 8:16


+ 189 Every living thing that is with you of all flesh, of fowl, and of animals and of all the creeping things that creep on the earth, bring out with you, and they shall swarm upon the earth, and they shall be fruitful and multiply upon the earth. Bereshit 8:17


+ 226 And the Lord smelled the pleasant aroma, and the Lord said to Himself, I will no longer curse the earth because of man, for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth, and I will no longer smite all living things as I have done. Bereshit 8:21


+ 218 And your fear and your dread shall be upon all the beasts of the earth and upon all the fowl of the heaven; upon everything that creeps upon the ground and upon all the fish of the sea, for they have been given into your hands. Bereshit 9:2


+ 174 Every moving thing that lives shall be yours to eat; like the green vegetation, I have given you everything. Bereshit 9:3


+ 177 But, flesh with its soul, its blood, you shall not eat. Bereshit 9:4


+ 193 But your blood, of your souls, I will demand an account; from the hand of every beast I will demand it, and from the hand of man, from the hand of each man, his brother, I will demand the soul of man. Bereshit 9:5


+ 188 And you, be fruitful and multiply; swarm upon the earth and multiply thereon. Bereshit 9:7


+ 168 And I, behold I am setting up My covenant with you and with your seed after you. Bereshit 9:9


+ 180 And with every living creature that is with you, among the fowl, among the cattle, and among all the beasts of the earth with you, of all those who came out of the ark, of all the living creatures of the earth. Bereshit 9:10


+ 194 And I will establish My covenant with you, and never again will all flesh be cut off by the flood waters, and there will never again be a flood to destroy the earth. Bereshit 9:11


+ 201 And God said: This is the sign of the covenant, which I am placing between Me and between you, and between every living soul that is with you, for everlasting generations. Bereshit 9:12


+ 223 And I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and between you and between every living creature among all flesh, and the water will no longer become a flood to destroy all flesh. Bereshit 9:15


+ 218 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon as you come to Gerar, until Gaza, as you come to Sodom and Gomorrah, and Admah and Zeboiim, until Lesha. Bereshit 10:19


+ 160 And their settlement was from Mesha, as you come to Sephar, the mountain of the east. Bereshit 10:30


+ 181 And the Lord said to Abram, Go forth from your land and from your birthplace and from your father's house, to the land that I will show you. Bereshit 12:1


+ 178 And I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you, and I will aggrandize your name, and you shall be a blessing. Bereshit 12:2


+ 187 And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse, and all the families of the earth shall be blessed in you. Bereshit 12:3


+ 175 And the Lord appeared to Abram, and He said, To your seed I will give this land, and there he built an altar to the Lord, Who had appeared to him. Bereshit 12:7


+ 182 Now it came to pass when he drew near to come to Egypt, that he said to Sarai his wife, Behold now I know that you are a woman of fair appearance. Bereshit 12:11


+ 177 And it will come to pass when the Egyptians see you, that they will say, This is his wife, and they will slay me and let you live. Bereshit 12:12


+ 192 Please say that you are my sister, in order that it go well with me because of you, and that my soul may live because of you. Bereshit 12:13


+ 192 And Pharaoh summoned Abram, and he said, What is this that you have done to me? Why did you not tell me that she was your wife? Bereshit 12:18


+ 181 Why did you say, She is my sister, so that I took her to myself for a wife? And now, here is your wife; take her and go. Bereshit 12:19


+ 207 And Abram said to Lot, Please let there be no quarrel between me and between you and between my herdsmen and between your herdsmen, for we are kinsmen. Bereshit 13:8


+ 200 Is not all the land before you? Please part from me; if you go left, I will go right, and if you go right, I will go left. Bereshit 13:9


+ 199 And Lot raised his eyes, and he saw the entire plain of the Jordan, that it was entirely watered; before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt, as you come to Zoar. Bereshit 13:10


+ 216 And the Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, Please raise your eyes and see, from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward. Bereshit 13:14


+ 168 For all the land that you see I will give to you and to your seed to eternity. Bereshit 13:15

+ 166 Rise, walk in the land, to its length and to its breadth, for I will give it to you. Bereshit 13:17


+ 173 And blessed be the Most High God, Who has delivered your adversaries into your hand, and he gave him a tithe from all. Bereshit 14:20


+ 183 And the king of Sodom said to Abram, Give me the souls, and the possessions take for yourself. Bereshit 14:21


+ 177 Neither from a thread to a shoe strap, nor will I take from whatever is yours, that you should not say, I have made Abram wealthy. Bereshit 14:23


+ 198 After these incidents, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram; I am your Shield; your reward is exceedingly great. Bereshit 15:1


+ 195 And Abram said, O Lord God, what will You give me, since I am going childless, and the steward of my household is Eliezer of Damascus? Bereshit 15:2


+ 212 And Abram said, Behold, You have given me no seed, and behold, one of my household will inherit me. Bereshit 15:3


+ 188 And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, This one will not inherit you, but the one who will spring from your innards-he will inherit you. Bereshit 15:4


+ 194 And He took him outside, and He said, Please look heavenward and count the stars, if you are able to count them. And He said to him, So will be your seed. Bereshit 15:5


+ 173 And He said to him, I am the Lord, Who brought you forth from Ur of the Chaldees, to give you this land to inherit it. Bereshit 15:7


+ 194 And He said to him, Take for Me three heifers and three goats and three rams, and a turtle dove and a young bird. Bereshit 15:9


+ 209 And He said to Abram, You shall surely know that your seed will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and they will enslave them and oppress them, for four hundred years. Bereshit 15:13


+ 159 But you will come to your forefathers in peace; you will be buried in a good old age. Bereshit 15:15


+ 188 On that day, the Lord formed a covenant with Abram, saying, To your seed I have given this land, from the river of Egypt until the great river, the Euphrates river. Bereshit 15:18


+ 197 And Sarai said to Abram, May my injustice be upon you! I gave my handmaid into your bosom, and she saw that she had become pregnant, and I became unimportant in her eyes. May the Lord judge between me and you! Bereshit 16:5


+ 197 And Abram said to Sarai, Here is your handmaid in your hand; do to her that which is proper in your eyes. And Sarai afflicted her, and she fled from before her. Bereshit 16:6


+ 189 And he said, Hagar, Sarai's servant, where are you coming from, and where are you going to? And she said, From before Sarai my mistress, I am fleeing. Bereshit 16:8


+ 178 And the angel of the Lord said to her, Return to your mistress, and allow yourself to be afflicted under her hands. Bereshit 16:9


+ 196 And the angel of the Lord said to her, I will greatly multiply your seed, and it will not be counted for abundance. Bereshit 16:10


+ 182 And the angel of the Lord said to her, Behold, you will conceive and bear a son, and you shall name him Ishmael, for the Lord has heard your affliction. Bereshit 16:11


+ 187 And she called the name of the Lord, Who had spoken to her, You are the God of seeing, because she said, Have I seen him here also after I have seen? Bereshit 16:13


+ 181 And I will place My covenant between Me and between you, and I will multiply you very greatly. Bereshit 17:2


+ 179 As for Me, behold My covenant is with you, and you shall become the father of a multitude of nations. Bereshit 17:4


+ 202 And your name shall no longer be called Abram, but your name shall be Abraham, for I have made you the father of a multitude of nations. Bereshit 17:5


+ 174 And I will make you exceedingly fruitful, and I will make you into nations, and kings will emerge from you. Bereshit 17:6


+ 196 And I will establish My covenant between Me and between you and between your seed after you throughout their generations as an everlasting covenant, to be to you for a God and to your seed after you. Bereshit 17:7


+ 190 And I will give you and your seed after you the land of your sojournings, the entire land of Canaan for an everlasting possession, and I will be to them for a God. Bereshit 17:8


+ 192 And God said to Abraham, And you shall keep My covenant, you and your seed after you throughout their generations. Bereshit 17:9


+ 206 This is My covenant, which you shall observe between Me and between you and between your seed after you, that every male among you be circumcised. Bereshit 17:10


+ 175 And you shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin, and it shall be as the sign of a covenant between Me and between you. Bereshit 17:11


+ 216 And at the age of eight days, every male shall be circumcised to you throughout your generations, one that is born in the house, or one that is purchased with money, from any foreigner, who is not of your seed. Bereshit 17:12


+ 210 Those born in the house and those purchased for money shall be circumcised, and My covenant shall be in your flesh as an everlasting covenant. Bereshit 17:13


+ 189 And God said to Abraham, Your wife Sarai-you shall not call her name Sarai, for Sarah is her name. Bereshit 17:15


+ 172 And I will bless her, and I will give you a son from her, and I will bless her, and she will become a mother of nations; kings of nations will be from her. Bereshit 17:16


+ 174 And Abraham said to God, If only Ishmael will live before You! Bereshit 17:18


+ 211 And God said, Indeed, your wife Sarah will bear you a son, and you shall name him Isaac, and I will establish My covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his seed after him. Bereshit 17:19


+ 182 And regarding Ishmael, I have heard you; behold I have blessed him, and I will make him fruitful, and I will multiply him exceedingly; he will beget twelve princes, and I will make him into a great nation. Bereshit 17:20


+ 200 But My covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this time next year. Bereshit 17:21


+ 217 And he said, My lords, if only I have found favor in your eyes, please do not pass on from beside your servant. Bereshit 18:3


+ 177 Please let a little water be taken, and bathe your feet, and recline under the tree. Bereshit 18:4


+ 204 And I will take a morsel of bread, and sustain your hearts; after wards you shall pass on, because you have passed by your servant. And they said, So shall you do, as you have spoken. Bereshit 18:5


+ 189 And to the cattle did Abraham run, and he took a calf, tender and good, and he gave it to the youth, and he hastened to prepare it. Bereshit 18:7


+ 169 And they said to him, Where is Sarah your wife? And he said, Behold in the tent. Bereshit 18:9


+ 192 And he said, I will surely return to you at this time next year, and behold, your wife Sarah will have a son. And Sarah heard from the entrance of the tent, and it was behind him. Bereshit 18:10


+ 192 Is anything hidden from the Lord? At the appointed time, I will return to you, at this time next year and Sarah will have a son. Bereshit 18:14


+ 177 And Sarah denied, saying, I did not laugh, because she was afraid. And He said, No, but you laughed. Bereshit 18:15


+ 187 And Abraham approached and said, Will You even destroy the righteous with the wicked? Bereshit 18:23


+ 176 Perhaps there are fifty righteous men in the midst of the city; will You even destroy and not forgive the place for the sake of the fifty righteous men who are in its midst? Bereshit 18:24


+ 168 Far be it from You to do a thing such as this, to put to death the righteous with the wicked so that the righteous should be like the wicked. Far be it from You! Will the Judge of the entire earth not perform justice? Bereshit 18:25


+ 183 Perhaps the fifty righteous men will be missing five. Will You destroy the entire city because of five? And He said, I will not destroy if I find there forty-five. Bereshit 18:28


+ 201 And he said, Behold now my lords, please turn to your servant's house and stay overnight and wash your feet, and you shall arise early and go on your way. And they said, No, but we will stay overnight in the street. Bereshit 19:2


+ 169 When they had not yet retired, and the people of the city, the people of Sodom, surrounded the house, both young and old, the entire populace from every end of the city. Bereshit 19:4


+ 179 And they called to Lot and said to him, Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, and let us be intimate with them. Bereshit 19:5


+ 214 Behold now I have two daughters who were not intimate with a man. I will bring them out to you, and do to them as you see fit; only to these men do nothing, because they have come under the shadow of my roof. Bereshit 19:8


+ 188 But they said, Back away. And they said, This one came to sojourn, and he is judging! Now, we will deal even worse with you than with them. And they pressed hard upon the man Lot, and they drew near to break the door. Bereshit 19:9


+ 174 And the men said to Lot, Whom else do you have here? A son-in-law, your sons, and your daughters, and whomever you have in the city, take out of the place. Bereshit 19:12


+ 206 And as the dawn rose, the angels pressed Lot, saying, Get up, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you perish because of the iniquity of the city. Bereshit 19:15


+ 192 And it came to pass, when they took them outside, that he said, Flee for your life, do not look behind you, and do not stand in the entire plain. Flee to the mountain, lest you perish. Bereshit 19:17


+ 206 Behold now, Your servant has found favor in Your eyes, and You have increased Your kindness, which You have done with me, to sustain my soul. But I cannot flee to the mountain, lest the evil overtake me, and I die. Bereshit 19:19


+ 173 And he said to him, Behold I have favored you also as regards this matter, that I will not overturn the city that you have mentioned. Bereshit 19:21


+ 183 Hasten, flee there, for I will not be able to do anything until you arrive there. Therefore, he named the city Zoar. Bereshit 19:22


+ 183 And the elder said to the younger, Our father is old, and there is no man on earth to come upon us, as is the custom of all the earth. Bereshit 19:31


+ 202 And it came to pass on the morrow, that the elder said to the younger, Behold, last night I lay with my father. Let us give him wine to drink tonight too, and come, lie with him, and let us bring to life seed from our father. Bereshit 19:34


+ 194 So they gave their father to drink on that night also, and the younger arose and lay with him, and he did not know of her lying down or of her rising up. Bereshit 19:35


+ 175 And the younger, she too bore a son, and she named him Ben-ami; he is the father of the children of Ammon until this day. Bereshit 19:38


+ 182 And God came to Abimelech in a dream of the night, and He said to him, Behold you are going to die because of the woman whom you have taken, for she is a married woman. Bereshit 20:3


+ 175 And Abimelech had not come near to her, and he said, O Lord, will You kill even a righteous nation? Bereshit 20:4


+ 182 And God said to him in a dream, I too know that you did this with the innocence of your heart, and I too have withheld you from sinning to Me; therefore, I did not let you touch her. Bereshit 20:6


+ 186 And now, return the man's wife, because he is a prophet, and he will pray for you and you will live; but if you do not return her, know that you will surely die, you and all that is yours. Bereshit 20:7


+ 186 And Abimelech summoned Abraham and said to him, What have you done to us, and what have I sinned against you, that you have brought upon me and upon my kingdom a great sin? Deeds that are not done, you have done to me. Bereshit 20:9


+ 192 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What did you see, that you did this thing? Bereshit 20:10


+ 187 And it came to pass, when God caused me to wander from my father's house, that I said to her: This is your kindness, which you shall do with me: whither we come, say about me, He is my brother. Bereshit 20:13


+ 183 And Abimelech said, Here is my land before you; wherever it pleases you, you may dwell. Bereshit 20:15


+ 203 And to Sarah he said, Behold I have given a thousand pieces of silver to your brother; behold it is to you a covering of the eyes for all who are with you, and with all you shall contend. Bereshit 20:16


+ 215 And God said to Abraham, Be not displeased concerning the lad and concerning your handmaid; whatever Sarah tells you, hearken to her voice, for in Isaac will be called your seed. Bereshit 21:12


+ 190 But also the son of the handmaid I will make into a nation, because he is your seed. Bereshit 21:13


+ 202 And God heard the lad's voice, and an angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, and said to her, What is troubling you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the lad's voice in the place where he is. Bereshit 21:17


+ 185 Rise, pick up the lad and grasp your hand upon him, for I shall make him into a great nation. Bereshit 21:18


+ 199 Now it came to pass at that time, that Abimelech and Phicol his general said to Abraham, saying, God is with you in all that you do. Bereshit 21:22


+ 213 And now, swear to me here by God, that you will not lie to me or to my son or to my grandson; according to the kindness that I have done with you, you shall do with me, and with the land wherein you have sojourned. Bereshit 21:23


+ 170 And Abimelech said, I do not know who did this thing, neither did you tell me, nor did I hear of it until today. Bereshit 21:26


+ 183 And Abimelech said to Abraham, What are these seven ewe lambs, which you have placed by themselves? Bereshit 21:29


+ 197 And he said, For these seven ewe lambs you shall take from my hand, in order that it be to me for a witness that I dug this well. Bereshit 21:30


+ 242 And He said, Please take your son, your only one, whom you love, yea, Isaac, and go away to the land of Moriah and bring him up there for a burnt offering on one of the mountains, of which I will tell you. Bereshit 22:2


+ 225 And Abraham arose early in the morning, and he saddled his donkey, and he took his two young men with him and Isaac his son; and he split wood for a burnt offering, and he arose and went to the place of which God had told him. Bereshit 22:3


+ 183 And Abraham said to his young men, Stay here with the donkey, and I and the lad will go yonder, and we will prostrate ourselves and return to you. Bereshit 22:5


+ 180 And he said, Do not stretch forth your hand to the lad, nor do the slightest thing to him, for now I know that you are a God fearing man, and you did not withhold your son, your only one, from Me. Bereshit 22:12


+ 196 And he said, By Myself have I sworn, says the Lord, that because you have done this thing and you did not withhold your son, your only one, Bereshit 22:16


+ 179 That I will surely bless you, and I will greatly multiply your seed as the stars of the heavens and as the sand that is on the seashore, and your descendants will inherit the cities of their enemies. Bereshit 22:17


+ 178 And through your children shall be blessed all the nations of the world, because you hearkened to My voice. Bereshit 22:18


+ 192 And Abraham returned to his young men, and they arose and went together to Beer sheba; and Abraham remained in Beer sheba. Bereshit 22:19


+ 185 And it came to pass after these matters, that it was told to Abraham saying: Behold Milcah, she also bore sons to Nahor your brother. Bereshit 22:20


+ 165 I am a stranger and an inhabitant with you. Give me burial property with you, so that I may bury my dead from before me. Bereshit 23:4


+ 229 Listen to us, my lord; you are a prince of God in our midst; in the choicest of our graves bury your dead. None of us will withhold his grave from you to bury your dead. Bereshit 23:6


+ 184 And he spoke with them, saying, If it is your will that I bury my dead from before me, listen to me and entreat for me to Ephron the son of Zohar. Bereshit 23:8


+ 198 That he may give me the Machpelah (double) Cave, which belongs to him, which is at the end of his field; for a full price let him give it to me in your midst for burial property. Bereshit 23:9


+ 202 No, my lord, listen to me. I have given you the field, and the cave that is in it, I have given it to you. Before the eyes of the sons of my people, I have given it to you; bury your dead. Bereshit 23:11


+ 205 And he spoke to Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, saying, But, if only you would listen to me. I am giving the money for the field; take it from me, and I will bury my dead there. Bereshit 23:13


+ 193 My lord, listen to me; a piece of land worth four hundred shekels of silver, what is it between me and you? Bury your dead. Bereshit 23:15


+ 204 And Abraham said to his servant, the elder of his house, who ruled over all that was his, Please place your hand under my thigh. Bereshit 24:2


+ 188 And I will adjure you by the Lord, the God of the heaven and the God of the earth, that you will not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose midst I dwell. Bereshit 24:3


+ 299 But you shall go to my land and to my birthplace, and you shall take a wife for my son, for Isaac. Bereshit 24:4


+ 180 And the servant said to him, Perhaps the woman will not wish to go after me to this land. Shall I return your son to the land from which you came? Bereshit 24:5


+ 173 And Abraham said to him, Beware, lest you return my son back there. Bereshit 24:6


+ 228 The Lord, God of the heavens, Who took me from my father's house and from the land of my birth, and Who spoke about me, and Who swore to me, saying, To your seed will I give this land He will send His angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there. Bereshit 24:7


+ 196 And if the woman will not wish to go after you, you will be absolved of this, my oath; only do not return my son back there. Bereshit 24:8


+ 200 And it will be, that the maiden to whom I will say, Lower your pitcher and I will drink, and she will say, Drink, and I will also water your camels, her have You designated for Your servant, for Isaac, and through her may I know that You have performed loving kindness with my master. Bereshit 24:14


+ 177 And the servant ran toward her, and he said, Please let me sip a little water from your pitcher. Bereshit 24:17


+ 183 And she finished giving him to drink, and she said, I will also draw for your camels, until they will have finished drinking. Bereshit 24:19


+ 171 And he said, Whose daughter are you? Please tell me. Is there place for us for lodging in your father's house? Bereshit 24:23


+ 164 And he said, Come, you who are blessed of the Lord. Why should you stand outside, when I have cleared the house, and a place for the camels? Bereshit 24:31


+ 202 And my master adjured me, saying, You shall not take a wife for my son from the daughters of the Canaanites, in whose land I dwell. Bereshit 24:37


+ 177 Instead, you must go to my father's house and to my family, and take a wife for my son. Bereshit 24:38


+ 197 And he said to me, The Lord, before Whom I walked, will send His angel with you and make your way prosper, and you shall take a wife for my son from my family and from my father's house. Bereshit 24:40


+ 182 You will then be absolved from my oath, when you come to my family, and if they do not give her to you, you will be absolved from my oath. Bereshit 24:41


+ 221 So I came today to the fountain, and I said, O Lord, God of my master Abraham, if You desire to prosper my way upon which I am going Bereshit 24:42


+ 200 Behold, I am standing by the water fountain. When a maiden comes out to draw water, I will say to her, Please, give me a little water to drink from your pitcher. Bereshit 24:43


+ 202 And if she will say to me, You too may drink, and I will also draw water for your camels, she is the woman whom the Lord has designated for my master's son. Bereshit 24:44


+ 183 And she hastened and lowered her pitcher from upon her, and she said, Drink, and I will also water your camels. So I drank, and she also watered the camels. Bereshit 24:46


+ 210 And I asked her, and I said, Whose daughter are you? And she replied, The daughter of Bethuel the son of Nahor, whom Milcah bore to him. And I placed the nose ring on her nose and the bracelets on her hands. Bereshit 24:47


+ 181 And now, if you will do loving kindness and truth with my master, tell me, and if not, tell me, and I will turn to the right or to the left. Bereshit 24:49


+ 184 And Laban and Bethuel answered and said, The matter has emanated from the Lord. We cannot speak to you either bad or good. Bereshit 24:50


+ 145 Behold Rebecca is before you, take her and go, and let her be a wife for your master's son, as the Lord has spoken. Bereshit 24:51


+ 183 And they summoned Rebecca, and they said to her, Will you go with this man? And she said, I will go. Bereshit 24:58


+ 182 And they blessed Rebecca and said to her, Our sister, may you become thousands of myriads, and may your seed inherit the cities of their enemies. Bereshit 24:60


+ 174 And the Lord said to her, Two nations are in your womb, and two kingdoms will separate from your innards, and one kingdom will become mightier than the other kingdom, and the elder will serve the younger. Bereshit 25:23


+ 195 And the youths grew up, and Esau was a man who understood hunting, a man of the field, whereas Jacob was an innocent man, dwelling in tents. Bereshit 25:27


+ 173 And Jacob said, Sell me as of this day your birthright. Bereshit 25:31


+ 176 And the Lord appeared to him, and said, Do not go down to Egypt; dwell in the land that I will tell you. Bereshit 26:2


+ 195 Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and I will bless you, for to you and to your seed will I give all these lands, and I will establish the oath that I swore to Abraham, your father. Bereshit 26:3


+ 189 And I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and I will give your seed all these lands, and all the nations of the earth will bless themselves by your seed, Bereshit 26:4


+ 246 So Abimelech called Isaac, and he said, Behold, she is your wife; so how could you have said, She is my sister? And Isaac said to him, Because I said, Lest I die because of her. Bereshit 26:9


+ 194 And Abimelech said, What have you done to us? The most prominent of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us. Bereshit 26:10


+ 200 And Abimelech said to Isaac, Go away from us, for you have become much stronger than we. Bereshit 26:16


+ 191 And the Lord appeared to him on that night and said, I am the God of Abraham, your father. Fear not, for I am with you, and I will bless you and multiply your seed for the sake of Abraham, My servant. Bereshit 26:24


+ 194 And Isaac said to them, Why have you come to me, since you hate me, and you sent me away from you? Bereshit 26:27


+ 178 And they said, We have seen that the Lord was with you; so we said: Let there now be an oath between us, between ourselves and you, and let us form a covenant with you. Bereshit 26:28


+ 193 If you do not harm us, as we have not touched you, and as we have done with you only good, and we sent you away in peace, so do you now, blessed of the Lord. Bereshit 26:29


+ 177 So, now, sharpen your implements, your sword and take your bow, and go forth to the field, and hunt game for me. Bereshit 27:3


+ 165 And make for me tasty foods as I like, and bring them to me, and I will eat, in order that my soul will bless you before I die. Bereshit 27:4


+ 202 And Rebecca said to Jacob her son, saying, Behold I have heard your father speaking to Esau your brother, saying, Bereshit 27:6


+ 171 Bring me game and make me tasty foods, and I will eat, and I will bless you before the Lord before my death. Bereshit 27:7


+ 169 And now my son, hearken to my voice, to what I am commanding you. Bereshit 27:8


+ 174 Go now to the flock, and take for me from there two choice kids, and I will make them tasty foods for your father, as he likes. Bereshit 27:9


+ 159 And you shall bring them to your father that he may eat, in order that he bless you before his death. Bereshit 27:10


+ 196 And his mother said to him, On me is your curse, my son. Only hearken to my voice and go, take them for me. Bereshit 27:13


+ 189 And Rebecca took the costly garments of Esau, her elder son, which were with her in the house, and she dressed Jacob, her younger son. Bereshit 27:15


+ 158 And he came to his father and said, My father! And he said, Here I am. Who are you, my son? Bereshit 27:18


+ 209 And Jacob said to his father, I am Esau your firstborn. I have done as you have spoken to me. Please rise, sit down and eat of my game, so that your soul will bless me. Bereshit 27:19


+ 279 And Isaac said to his son, How is it that you have found it so quickly, my son? And he said, Because the Lord your God prepared it before me. Bereshit 27:20


+ 223 And Isaac said to Jacob, Please come closer, so that I may feel you, my son, whether you are really my son Esau or not. Bereshit 27:21


+ 162 And he said, Are you indeed my son Esau? And he said, I am. Bereshit 27:24


+ 172 And he said, Serve it to me that I may eat of the game of my son, so that my soul will bless you. And he served him, and he ate, and he brought him wine, and he drank. Bereshit 27:25


+ 197 And may the Lord give you of the dew of the heavens and of the fatness of the earth and an abundance of grain and wine. Bereshit 27:28


+ 175 Nations shall serve you and kingdoms shall bow down to you; you shall be a master over your brothers, and your mother's sons shall bow down to you. Those who curse you shall be cursed, and those who bless you shall be blessed. Bereshit 27:29


+ 192 And he too had made tasty foods, and he brought them to his father, and he said to his father, Let my father arise and eat of the game of his son, so that your soul will bless me. Bereshit 27:31


+ 177 And his father Isaac said to him, Who are you? And he said, I am your son, your firstborn, Esau. Bereshit 27:32


+ 255 And Isaac shuddered a great shudder, and he said, Who then is the one who hunted game and brought it to me, and I ate of everything while you had not yet come, and I blessed him? He, too, shall be blessed. Bereshit 27:33


+ 176 And he said, Your brother came with cunning and took your blessing. Bereshit 27:35


+ 212 And he said, Is it for this reason that he was named Jacob? For he has deceived me twice; he took my birthright, and behold, now he has taken my blessing. And he said, Have you not reserved a blessing for me? Bereshit 27:36


+ 216 And Isaac answered and said to Esau, Behold, I made him a master over you, and I gave him all his brothers as servants, and I have sustained him with corn and wine; so for you then, what shall I do, my son? Bereshit 27:37


+ 166 And Esau said to his father, Have you but one blessing, my father? Bless me too, my father. And Esau raised his voice and wept. Bereshit 27:38


+ 204 And his father Isaac answered and said to him, Behold, your dwelling place shall be the fat places of the earth and of the dew of the heaven from above. Bereshit 27:39


+ 187 And you shall live by your sword, and you shall serve your brother, and it will be, when you grieve, that you will break his yoke off your neck. Bereshit 27:40


+ 195 And Rebecca was told of the words of Esau, her elder son, and she sent and called Jacob, her younger son, and she said to him, "Behold, your brother Esau regrets his relationship to you and wishes to kill you. Bereshit 27:42


+ 169 And you shall dwell with him for a few days until your brother's wrath has subsided. Bereshit 27:44


+ 174 Until your brother's rage subsides from you, and he forgets what you did to him, and I will send and bring you from there. Why should I be bereft of both of you on one day? Bereshit 27:45


+ 208 And Isaac called Jacob and blessed him, and he commanded him and said to him, You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Bereshit 28:1


+ 195 Arise, go to Padan aram, to the house of Bethuel, your mother's father, and take yourself from there a wife of the daughters of Laban, your mother's brother. Bereshit 28:2


+ 187 And may the Almighty God bless you and make you fruitful and multiply you, and you shall become an assembly of peoples. Bereshit 28:3


+ 198 And may He give you the blessing of Abraham, to you and to your seed with you, that you may inherit the land of your sojournings, which God gave to Abraham. Bereshit 28:4


+ 237 And Esau saw that Isaac had blessed Jacob and sent him away to Padan aram, to take himself a wife from there, and that when he blessed him, he commanded him, saying, You shall not take a wife of the daughters of Canaan. Bereshit 28:6


+ 188 And behold, the Lord was standing over him, and He said, I am the Lord, the God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac; the land upon which you are lying to you I will give it and to your seed. Bereshit 28:13


+ 195 And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you shall gain strength westward and eastward and northward and southward; and through you shall be blessed all the families of the earth and through your seed. Bereshit 28:14


+ 197 And behold, I am with you, and I will guard you wherever you go, and I will restore you to this land, for I will not forsake you until I have done what I have spoken concerning you. Bereshit 28:15


+ 178 Then this stone, which I have placed as a monument, shall be a house of God, and everything that You give me, I will surely tithe to You. Bereshit 28:22


+ 178 And Jacob said to them, My brothers, where are you from? And they said, We are from Haran. 29:4


+ 175 And he said to them, Do you know Laban the son of Nahor? And they said, We know him. Bereshit 29:5


+ 179 And Laban said to him, Indeed, you are my bone and my flesh. And so he stayed with him a full month. Bereshit 29:14


+ 210 And Laban said to Jacob, Because you are my kinsman, should you work for me gratis? Tell me what your wages shall be. Bereshit 29:15


+ 186 Now Laban had two daughters; the name of the elder was Leah, and the name of the younger was Rachel. Bereshit 29:16


+ 217 And Jacob loved Rachel, and he said, I will work for you seven years for Rachel, your younger daughter. Bereshit 29:19


+ 176 And Laban said, It is better that I give her to you than I should give her to another man. Stay with me. Bereshit 29:19


+ 201 And it came to pass in the morning, and behold she was Leah! So he said to Laban, What is this that you have done to me? Did I not work with you for Rachel? Why have you deceived me? Bereshit 29:25


+ 162 And Laban said, It is not done so in our place to give the younger one before the firstborn. Bereshit 29:26


+ 181 Complete the wedding week of this one, and we will give you this one too, for the work that you will render me for another seven years. Bereshit 29:27


+ 196 And Jacob became angry with Rachel, and he said, Am I instead of God, Who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb? Bereshit 30:2


+ 204 Reuben went in the days of the wheat harvest, and he found dudaim in the field and brought them to Leah, his mother, and Rachel said to Leah, Now give me some of your son's dudaim. Bereshit 30:14


+ 219 And she said to her, Is it a small matter that you have taken my husband, that you wish also to take my son's dudaim? So Rachel said, Therefore, he shall sleep with you tonight as payment for your son's dudaim. Bereshit 30:15


+ 212 When Jacob came from the field in the evening, and Leah came forth toward him, and she said, You shall come to me, because I have hired you with my son's dudaim, and he slept with her on that night. Bereshit 30:16


+ 182 Give me my wives and my children for whom I worked for you, and I will go, for you know my work, which I have worked for you. Bereshit 30:26


+ 181 And Laban said to him, If only I have now found favor in your eyes! I have divined, and the Lord has blessed me for your sake. Bereshit 30:27


+ 177 Then he said, Specify your wages for me, and I will give them. Bereshit 30:28


+ 172 And he said to him, You know how I have worked for you and how your livestock was with me. Bereshit 30:29


+ 181 For the little that you had before me has increased in multitude, and the Lord blessed you upon my arrival; but now, when will I, too, provide something for my household? Bereshit 30:30


+ 197 And he said, What shall I give you? And Jacob said, You shall give me nothing; if you do this thing for me, I will return, I will pasture your flocks, and I will watch them. Bereshit 30:31


+ 219 I will pass throughout all your flocks today, removing from there every speckled and spotted kid, and every brown lamb among the sheep, and every spotted and speckled one from among the goats, and this shall be my wages. Bereshit 30:32


+ 200 And my righteousness will testify for me at a future date for it will come upon my wages before you. Whatever is not speckled or spotted among the goats or brown among the sheep shall be counted as stolen with me. Bereshit 30:33


+ 186 And Laban said, Very well! If only it would be as you say! Bereshit 30:34


+ 211 And the flocks came into heat by the rods, and the animals bore ringed, spotted, and striped young. Bereshit 30:39


+ 195 And the Lord said to Jacob, Return to the land of your forefathers and to your birthplace, and I will be with you. Bereshit 31:3


+ 198 And the Lord said to Jacob, Return to the land of your forefathers and to your birthplace, and I will be with you. Bereshit 31:3


+ 191 And he said to them, I see your father's countenance, that he is not disposed toward me as he was yesterday and the day before, but the God of my father was with me. Bereshit 31:5


+ 190 And you know that with all my might I served your father. Bereshit 31:6


+ 183 But your father mocked me and changed my wages ten times, but God did not permit him to harm me. Bereshit 31:7


+ 158 If he would say thus, Speckled ones shall be your wages, all the animals would bear speckled ones, and if he would say thus, Ringed ones shall be your wages, all the animals would bear ringed ones. Bereshit 31:8


+ 160 Thus, God separated your father's livestock and gave it to me. Bereshit 31:9


+ 207 And he said, Now lift your eyes and see that all the he goats mounting the animals are ringed, speckled, and striped, for I have seen all that Laban is doing to you. Bereshit 31:12


+ 208 I am the God of Beth el, where you anointed a monument, where you pronounced to Me a vow. Now, arise, go forth from this land and return to the land of your birth. Bereshit 31:13


+ 184 But all the wealth that God separated from our father is ours and our children's. So now, all that God said to you, do. Bereshit 31:16


+ 209 And God came to Laban the Aramean in a dream of the night, and He said to him, Beware lest you speak with Jacob either good or evil. Bereshit 31:24


+ 218 And Laban said to Jacob, What have you done, that you concealed from me, and led away my daughters like prisoners of war? Bereshit 31:26


+ 211 Why have you fled secretly, and concealed from me, and not told me? I would have sent you away with joy and with songs, and with drum and with harp. Bereshit 31:27


+ 176 And you did not allow me to kiss my sons and daughters. Now, you have acted foolishly. Bereshit 31:28


+ 204 I have the power to inflict harm upon you, but the God of your father spoke to me last night, saying, Beware of speaking with Jacob either good or bad. Bereshit 31:29


+ 187 But now, you have gone away, for you longed for your father's house, but why have you stolen my gods? Bereshit 31:30


+ 189 And Jacob replied, and he said to Laban, Because I was afraid, because I said, Lest you steal your daughters from me. Bereshit 31:31


+ 219 The one with whom you find your gods shall not live. In the presence of our brothers, recognize for yourself what is with me, and take it for yourself. For Jacob did not know that Rachel had stolen them. Bereshit 31:32


+ 206 And she said to her father, Let my lord not be annoyed, for I cannot rise before you, for the way of women is upon me. So he searched, but did not find the teraphim. Bereshit 31:35


+ 192 And Jacob was annoyed, and he quarreled with Laban, and he said to Laban, What is my transgression? What is my sin, that you have pursued me? Bereshit 31:36


+ 292 For you have felt about all my things. What have you found of all the utensils of your house? Put it here, in the presence of my kinsmen and your kinsmen, and let them decide between the two of us. Bereshit 31:37


+ 160 Already twenty years have I been with you, and your ewes and she goats have not aborted, neither have I eaten the rams of your flocks. Bereshit 31:38


+ 204 I have not brought home to you anything torn by other animals; I would suffer its loss; from my hand you would demand it, what was stolen by day and what was stolen at night. Bereshit 31:39


+ 183 This is twenty years that I have spent in your house. I served you fourteen years for your two daughters and six years for your animals, and you changed my wages ten times ten times. Bereshit 31:41


+ 220 Had not the God of my father, the God of Abraham and the Fear of Isaac, been for me, you would now have sent me away empty handed. God has seen my affliction and the toil of my hands, and He reproved you last night. Bereshit 31:42


+ 213 And Laban answered and said to Jacob, The daughters are my daughters, and the sons are my sons, and the animals are my animals, and all that you see is mine. Now, what would I do to these daughters of mine today, or to their children, whom they have borne? Bereshit 31:43


+ 147 So now, come, let us form a covenant, you and I, and may He be a witness between me and you." Bereshit 31:44


+ 172 And Laban said, This pile is a witness between me and you today. Therefore, he called it Gal ed. Bereshit 31:48


+ 138 And Mizpah, because he said, May the Lord look between me and you when we are hidden from each other. Bereshit 31:49


+ 169 If you afflict my daughters, or if you take wives in addition to my daughters when no one is with us, behold! God is a witness between me and you. Bereshit 31:50


+ 180 And Laban said to Jacob, Behold this pile and behold this monument, which I have cast between me and you. Bereshit 31:51


+ 154 This pile is a witness, and this monument is a witness, that I will not pass this pile to go to you and that you shall not pass this pile and this monument to come to me to do harm. Bereshit 31:52


+ 170 And he commanded them, saying, So shall you say to my master to Esau, Thus said your servant Jacob, I have sojourned with Laban, and I have tarried until now. Bereshit 32:5


+ 185 And I have acquired oxen and donkeys, flocks, manservants, and maidservants, and I have sent to tell this to my master, to find favor in your eyes. Bereshit 32:6


+ 177 The angels returned to Jacob, saying, We came to your brother, to Esau, and he is also coming toward you, and four hundred men are with him. Bereshit 32:7


+ 207 And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham and God of my father Isaac, the Lord, Who said to me, Return to your land and to your birthplace, and I will do good to you. Bereshit 32:10


+ 188 I have become small from all the kindnesses and from all the truth that You have rendered Your servant, for with my staff I crossed this Jordan, and now I have become two camps. Bereshit 32:11


+ 176 And You said, I will surely do good with you, and I will make your seed as numerous as the sand of the sea, which cannot be counted because of multitude. Bereshit 32:13


+ 189 Thirty nursing camels with their young, forty cows and ten bulls, twenty she donkeys and ten he donkeys. Bereshit 32:16


+ 172 And he commanded the first one, saying, When my brother Esau meets you, and asks you, saying, To whom do you belong, and where are you going, and for whom are these before you? Bereshit 32:18


+ 216 You shall say, I belong to your servant Jacob; it is a gift sent to my master, to Esau, and behold, he himself is behind us. Bereshit 32:19


+ 178 And he commanded also the second one, also the third one, also all those who followed the herds, saying, "In this manner shall you speak to Esau when you meet him. Bereshit 32:20


+ 195 And you shall say, Also, behold, your servant Jacob is behind us. For he said, I will appease his anger with the gift that is going before me, and afterwards I will see his face, perhaps he will favor me. Bereshit 32:21


+ 179 And the angel said, Let me go, for dawn is breaking, but Jacob said, I will not let you go unless you have blessed me. Bereshit 32:27


+ 167 So he said to him, What is your name? and he said, Jacob. Bereshit 32:28


+ 216 And he said, Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel, because you have commanding power with an angel of God and with men, and you have prevailed. Bereshit 32:29


+ 199 And Jacob asked and said, Now tell me your name, and he said, Why is it that you ask for my name? And he blessed him there. Bereshit 32:30


+ 179 And he lifted his eyes and saw the women and the children, and he said, Who are these to you? And he said, The children with whom God has favored your servant. Bereshit 33:5


+ 157 And he said, What is to you the purpose of all this camp that I have met? And he said, To find favor in my master's eyes. Bereshit 33:8


+ 150 But Esau said, I have plenty, my brother; let what you have remain yours. Bereshit 33:9


+ 205 Thereupon Jacob said, Please no! If indeed I have found favor in your eyes, then you shall take my gift from my hand, because I have seen your face, which is like seeing the face of an angel, and you have accepted me. Bereshit 33:10


+ 169 Now take my gift, which has been brought to you, for God has favored me with it, and because I have everything. He prevailed upon him, and he took it. Bereshit 33:11


+ 158 Thereupon, he said, Travel and we will go, and I will go alongside you. Bereshit 33:12


+ 169 And he said to him, My master knows that the children are tender, and the flocks and the cattle, which are raising their young, depend upon me, and if they overdrive them one day, all the flocks will die. Bereshit 33:13


+ 165 Thereupon Esau said, Let me leave with you some of the people who are with me. But he said, Why do that? May I find favor in my master's eyes. Bereshit 33:15


+ 153 And Hamor spoke with them, saying, "My son Shechem his soul has a liking for your daughter. Please give her to him for a wife. Bereshit 34:8


+ 162 And intermarry with us; you shall give us your daughters, and you shall take our daughters for yourselves. Bereshit 34:9


+ 147 And you shall dwell with us, and the land shall be before you; remain, do business there and settle there." Bereshit 34:10


+ 168 And Shechem said to her father and to her brothers, "May I find favor in your eyes. Whatever you tell me I will give. Bereshit 34:11


+ 148 Impose upon me a large marriage settlement and gifts, and I will give as much as you ask of me, but give me the girl for a wife." Bereshit 34:12


+ 180 But with this, however, we will consent to you, if you will be like us, that every male will be circumcised. Bereshit 34:15


+ 157 Then we will give you our daughters, and we will take your daughters for ourselves, and we will dwell with you and become one people. Bereshit 34:16


+ 143 But if you do not listen to us to be circumcised, we will take our daughter and go. Bereshit 34:17


+ 182 And the young man did not delay to do the thing because he desired Jacob's daughter, and he was the most honored in all his father's household. Bereshit 34:19


+ 219 Thereupon, Jacob said to Simeon and to Levi, You have troubled me, to discredit me among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and among the Perizzites, and I am few in number, and they will gather against me, and I and my household will be destroyed. Bereshit 34:30


+ 153 And God said to Jacob, Arise and go up to Beth el and abide there, and make there an altar to the God Who appeared to you when you fled from your brother Esau. Bereshit 35:1


+ 201 Thereupon Jacob said to his household and to all those who were with him, Remove the deities of the foreign nations, which are in your midst, purify yourselves and change your clothes. Bereshit 35:2


+ 190 God said to him, Your name is Jacob. Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel shall be your name. And He named him Israel. Bereshit 35:10


+ 180 And God said to him, I am the Almighty God; be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a multitude of nations shall come into existence from you, and kings shall come forth from your loins. Bereshit 35:11


+ 187 And the land that I gave to Abraham and to Isaac, I will give to you and to your seed after you will I give the land." Bereshit 35:12


+ 165 It came to pass when she had such difficulty giving birth, that the midwife said to her, "Do not be afraid, for this one, too, is a son for you." Bereshit 35:17


+ 173 Behold, we were binding sheaves in the midst of the field, and behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright, and behold, your sheaves encircled it and prostrated themselves to my sheaf. Bereshit 37:7


+ 138 So his brothers said to him, Will you reign over us, or will you govern us? And they continued further to hate him on account of his dreams and on account of his words. Bereshit 37:8


+ 180 And he told it to his father and to his brothers, and his father rebuked him and said to him, "What is this dream that you have dreamed? Will we come I, your mother, and your brothers to prostrate ourselves to you to the ground?" Bereshit 37:10


+ 188 And Israel said to Joseph, Are your brothers not pasturing in Shechem? Come, and I will send you to them. And he said to him, Here I am. Bereshit 37:13


+ 169 So he said to him, Go now and see to your brothers' welfare and the welfare of the flocks, and bring me back word. So he sent him from the valley of Hebron, and he came to Shechem. Bereshit 37:14


+ 156 Then a man found him, and behold, he was straying in the field, and the man asked him, saying, What are you looking for? Bereshit 37:15


+ 164 And they sent the fine woolen coat, and they brought it to their father, and they said, "We have found this; now recognize whether it is your son's coat or not." Bereshit 37:32


+ 159 So Judah said to Onan, "Come to your brother's wife and perform the rite of the levirate, and raise up progeny for your brother." Bereshit 38:8


+ 187 Then Judah said to his daughter in law Tamar, "Remain as a widow in your father's house until my son Shelah grows up," for he said, "Lest he too die, like his brothers." So Tamar went, and she remained in her father's house. Bereshit 38:11


+ 155 And it was told to Tamar, saying, Behold, your father in law is going up to Timnah to shear his sheep. Bereshit 38:13


+ 172 So he turned aside toward her to the road, and he said, Get ready now, I will come to you, for he did not know that she was his daughter in law, and she said, What will you give me that you should come to me? Bereshit 38:16


+ 174 And he said, I will send a kid from the herd, and she said, Only if you give me a pledge until you send it. Bereshit 38:17


+ 171 So he said, What is the pledge that I should give you? And she said, Your signet, your cloak, and the staff that is in your hand. So he gave them to her, and he came to her, and she conceived his likeness. Bereshit 38:18


+ 166 So Judah said, Let her take them for herself, lest we become a laughingstock. Behold, I sent this kid, but you did not find her. Bereshit 38:23


+ 198 Now it came about after nearly three months, that it was told to Judah, saying, Your daughter in law Tamar has played the harlot, and behold, she is pregnant from harlotry. So Judah said, Bring her out, and let her be burned. Bereshit 38:24


+ 178 And it came about, as he was drawing back his hand, behold, his brother emerged, and she said, With what strength you have strengthened yourself! And he named him Perez. Bereshit 38:29


+ 177 In this house, there is no one greater than I, and he has not withheld anything from me except you, insofar as you are his wife. Now how can I commit this great evil, and sin against God? Bereshit 39:9


+ 147 And she told him the same thing, saying, "The Hebrew slave that you brought to us came to me to mock me. Bereshit 39:17


+ 169 Now it came about when his master heard his wife's report that she spoke to him, saying, "Your slave did such things to me," that his wrath burned. Bereshit 39:19


+ 185 And he asked Pharaoh's chamberlains who were with him in the prison of his master's house, saying, Why are your faces sad today? Bereshit 40:7


+ 259 In another three days, Pharaoh will number you with the other officers, and he will restore you to your position, and you will place Pharaoh's cup into his hand, according to your previous custom, when you were his cupbearer. Bereshit 40:13


+ 160 But remember me when things go well with you, and please do me a favor and mention me to Pharaoh, and you will get me out of this house. Bereshit 40:14


+ 180 In another three days, Pharaoh will remove your head from you and hang you on a gallows, and the birds will eat your flesh off you. Bereshit 40:19


+ 196 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter for it, but I have heard it said of you that you understand a dream, to interpret it. Bereshit 41:15


+ 167 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, Since God has let you know all this, there is no one as understanding and wise as you. Bereshit 41:39


+ 274 You shall be appointed over my household, and through your command all my people shall be nourished; only with the throne will I be greater than you. Bereshit 41:40


+ 161 So Pharaoh said to Joseph, Look, I have appointed you over the entire land of Egypt. Bereshit 41:41


+ 163 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, I am Pharaoh, and besides you, no one may lift his hand or his foot in the entire land of Egypt." Bereshit 41:44


+ 169 When the entire land of Egypt hungered, the people cried out to Pharaoh for bread, but Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, "Go to Joseph; what he tells you, do." Bereshit 41:55


+ 171 Jacob saw that there was grain being sold in Egypt; so Jacob said to his sons, "Why do you appear satiated?" Bereshit 42:1


+ 166 And Joseph saw his brothers, and he recognized them, but he made himself a stranger to them, and he spoke to them harshly, and he said to them, "Where do you come from?" And they said, "From the land of Canaan to purchase food." Bereshit 42:7


+ 148 And Joseph remembered the dreams that he had dreamed about them, and he said to them, "You are spies; you have come to see the nakedness of the land." Bereshit 42:9


+ 158 And they said to him, No, my master, your servants have come to buy food. Bereshit 42:10


+ 146 We are all sons of one man. We are honest. Your servants were never spies. Bereshit 42:11


+ 143 But he said to them, No! But you have come to see the nakedness of the land. Bereshit 42:12


+ 162 And they said, "We, your servants, are twelve brothers, the sons of one man in the land of Canaan, and behold, the youngest is with our father today, and one is gone." Bereshit 42:13


+ 150 And Joseph said to them, This is just what I have spoken to you, saying, You are spies. Bereshit 42:14


+ 174 With this you shall be tested: By Pharaoh's life, you shall not leave this place unless your youngest brother comes here. Bereshit 42:15


+ 153 Send one of you and let him fetch your brother, and you will be imprisoned so that your words will be tested whether truth is with you, and if not, as Pharaoh lives, you are spies!" Bereshit 42:16


+ 151 If you are honest, your one brother will be confined in your prison, and you, go bring the grain for the hunger of your households. Bereshit 42:19


+ 142 And bring your youngest brother to me, so that your words may be verified, and you will not die." And they did so. Bereshit 42:20


+ 153 And Reuben answered them, saying, Did not I tell you, saying, Do not sin against the lad, but you did not listen? Behold, his blood, too, is being demanded! Bereshit 42:22


+ 146 We are twelve brothers, the sons of our father; one is gone, and today the youngest is with our father in the land of Canaan. Bereshit 42:32


+ 171 And the man, the lord of the land, said to us, With this I will know that you are honest; leave one of your brothers with me, and what is needed for the hunger of your households, take and go. Bereshit 42:33


+ 158 And bring your youngest brother to me, so that I will know that you are not spies, that you are honest; then I will give you your brother, and you may travel around in the land. Bereshit 42:34


+ 189 And their father Jacob said to them, You have bereaved me-Joseph is gone, and Simeon is gone, and you want to take Benjamin! All these troubles have come upon me. Bereshit 42:36


+ 167 And Reuben spoke to his father, saying, You may put my two sons to death if I don't bring him to you. Put him into my hands and I will return him to you. Bereshit 42:37


+ 190 But he Jacob said, My son shall not go down with you, because his brother is dead, and he alone is left, and if misfortune befalls him on the way you are going, you will bring down my gray head in sorrow to the grave. Bereshit 42:38


+ 168 But Judah spoke to him, saying, The man warned us repeatedly, saying, You shall not see my face if your brother is not with you. Bereshit 43:3


+ 129 If you send our brother with us, we will go down and buy food for you. Bereshit 43:4


+ 175 But if you do not send him, we will not go down, because the man said to us, You shall not see my face if your brother is not with you. Bereshit 43:5


+ 158 And Israel said, Why have you harmed me, by telling the man that you have another brother? Bereshit 43:6


+ 166 They said, The man asked about us and about our family, saying, Is your father still alive? Do you have a brother? And we told him according to these words. Could we have known that he would say, Bring your brother down? Bereshit 43:7


+ 171 And Judah said to Israel, his father, Send the lad with me, and we will get up and go, and we will live and not die, both we and you and also our young children. Bereshit 43:8


+ 145 I will guarantee him; from my hand you can demand him. If I do not bring him to you and stand him up before you, I will have sinned against you forever. Bereshit 43:9


+ 198 So Israel, their father, said to them, If so, then do this: take some of the choice products of the land in your vessels, and take down to the man as a gift, a little balm and a little honey, wax and lotus, pistachios and almonds. Bereshit 43:11


+ 159 And take double the money in your hands, and the money that was returned in the mouth of your sacks you shall return in your hands, perhaps it was an error. Bereshit 43:12


+ 135 And take your brother, and get up, go back to the man. Bereshit 43:13


+ 163 And may the Almighty God grant you compassion before the man, and he will release to you your other brother and Benjamin, and as for me as I am bereaved, I am bereaved. Bereshit 43:14


+ 155 And he said, Peace to you; fear not. Your God and the God of your father gave you a treasure in your sacks; your money came to me. And he brought Simeon out to them. Bereshit 43:23


+ 153 He inquired after their welfare, and he said to them, Is your elderly father, whom you mentioned, well? Is he still alive? Bereshit 43:27


+ 152 And they said, Your servant, our father, is well; he is still alive. And they bowed and prostrated themselves. Bereshit 43:28


+ 171 And he lifted his eyes and saw Benjamin, his brother, the son of his mother, and he said, Is this your little brother, whom you told me about? And he said, May God favor you, my son. Bereshit 43:29


+ 127 They sat before him, the firstborn according to his age, and the youngest according to his youth, and the men looked at each other in astonishment. Bereshit 43:33


+ 153 And my goblet, the silver goblet, put into the mouth of the sack of the youngest, and his purchase money." And he did according to Joseph's word, which he had spoken. Bereshit 44:2


+ 150 They had exited the city, but had not gone far when Joseph said to the overseer of his house, "Get up, pursue the men, and when you overtake them, say to them, 'Why have you repaid good with evil? Bereshit 44:4


+ 145 Is not this the one my master drinks from? Why, he even divines with it! You have done evil by the way you have acted.' " Bereshit 44:5


+ 158 And they said to him, Why should my master say such words as these? Far be it from your servants to do a thing like this! Bereshit 44:7


+ 165 Behold, the money we found in the mouth of our sacks we returned to you from the land of Canaan; so how could we steal from your master's house silver or gold? Bereshit 44:8


+ 155 Whichever one of your servants with whom it is found shall die, and also we will be slaves to my master. Bereshit 44:9


+ 158 And he said, Now indeed, so it is as you have spoken. But the one with whom it is found shall be my slave, and you shall be cleared. Bereshit 44:10


+ 161 He searched; he started with the eldest and finished with the youngest, and the goblet was found in Benjamin's sack. Bereshit 44:12


+ 175 And Joseph said to them, What is this deed that you have committed? Don't you know that a person like me practices divination? Bereshit 44:15


+ 177 And Judah said, What shall we say to my master? What shall we speak, and how shall we exonerate ourselves? God has found your servants iniquity both we and the one in whose possession the goblet has been found. Bereshit 44:16


+ 159 But he said, Far be it from me to do this! The man in whose possession the goblet was found he shall be my slave, but as for you go up in peace to your father. Bereshit 44:17


+ 176 Then Judah approached him and said, Please, my lord, let now your servant speak something into my lord's ears, and let not your wrath be kindled against your servant, for you are like Pharaoh. Bereshit 44:18


+ 138 My lord asked his servants, saying, 'Have you a father or a brother?' Bereshit 44:19


+ 294 And we said to my lord, 'We have an old father and a young child of his old age, and his brother is dead, and he is left alone of his mother, and his father loves him.' Bereshit 44:20


+ 164 And you said to your servants, Bring him down to me, and I will set my eyes upon him. Bereshit 44:21


+ 168 And you said to your servants, If your youngest brother does not come down with you, you will not see my face again. Bereshit 44:23


+ 157 And it came to pass when we went up to your servant, my father, and we told him the words of my lord, Bereshit 44:24


+ 168 But we said, 'We cannot go down; only if our youngest brother is with us will we go down, for we cannot see the man's face if our youngest brother is not with us.' Bereshit 44:26


+ 148 And your servant, my father, said to us, 'You know that my wife bore me two children. Bereshit 44:27


+ 176 Now if you take this one too away from me, and misfortune befalls him, you will bring down my hoary head in misery to the grave.' Bereshit 44:29


+ 142 And now, when I come to your servant, my father, and the boy is not with us since his soul is attached to his (the boy's) soul, Bereshit 44:30


+ 138 It will come to pass, when he sees that the boy is gone, he will die, and your servants will have brought down the hoary head of your servant, our father, in grief to the grave. Bereshit 44:31


+ 151 For your servant assumed responsibility for the boy from my father, saying, 'If I do not bring him to you, I will have sinned against my father forever.' Bereshit 44:32


+ 167 So now, please let your servant stay instead of the boy as a slave to my lord, and may the boy go up with his brothers. Bereshit 44:33


+ 162 Then Joseph said to his brothers, Please come closer to me, and they drew closer. And he said, I am your brother Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt. Bereshit 45:4


+ 145 But now do not be sad, and let it not trouble you that you sold me here, for it was to preserve life that God sent me before you. Bereshit 45:5


+ 148 And God sent me before you to make for you a remnant in the land, and to preserve it for you for a great deliverance. Bereshit 45:7


+ 168 And now, you did not send me here, but God, and He made me a father to Pharaoh, a lord over all his household, and a ruler over the entire land of Egypt. Bereshit 45:8


+ 152 Hasten and go up to my father, and say to him, So said your son, Joseph: God has made me a lord over all the Egyptians. Come down to me, do not tarry. Bereshit 45:9


+ 136 And you shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near to me, you and your children and your grandchildren, and your flocks and your cattle and all that is yours. Bereshit 45:10


+ 189 And I will sustain you there for there are still five years of famine lest you become impoverished, you and your household and all that is yours. Bereshit 45:11


+ 159 And behold, your eyes see, as well as the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth speaking to you. Bereshit 45:12


+ 154 And you shall tell my father of all my honor in Egypt and all that you have seen, and you shall hasten and bring my father down here. Bereshit 45:13


+ 148 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, Tell your brothers, Do this load up your beasts and go, enter the land of Canaan. Bereshit 45:17


+ 160 And take your father and your households and come to me, and I will give you the best of the land of Egypt, and you will eat the fat of the land. Bereshit 45:18


+ 170 And Joseph have been commanded to tell them, Do this: take yourselves wagons from the land of Egypt for your young children and for your wives, and you shall carry your father and come. Bereshit 45:19


+ 147 And let your eye not be concerned about your utensils, for the best of all the land of Egypt is yours. Bereshit 45:20


+ 155 And He said, I am God, the God of your father. Do not be afraid of going down to Egypt, for there I will make you into a great nation. Bereshit 46:3


+ 137 I will go down with you to Egypt, and I will also bring you up, and Joseph will place his hand on your eyes. Bereshit 46:4


+ 202 And Jacob arose from Beer sheba, and the sons of Israel carried their father Jacob and their young children and their wives, in the wagons Pharaoh had sent to carry him. Bereshit 46:5


+ 157 And Israel said to Joseph, I will die this time, since I have seen your face, that you are still alive. Bereshit 46:30


+ 139 And if it comes to pass that Pharaoh calls you and asks, 'What is your occupation?' Bereshit 46:33


+ 188 You shall say, Your servants have been owners of livestock from our youth until now, both we and our ancestors, so that you may dwell in the land of Goshen, because all shepherds are abhorrent to the Egyptians. Bereshit 46:34


+ 160 And Pharaoh said to his brothers, "What is your occupation?" And they said to Pharaoh, "Your servants are shepherds, both we and our forefathers." Bereshit 47:3


+ 166 And they said to Pharaoh, We have come to sojourn in the land, for your servants flocks have no pasture, for the famine is severe in the land of Canaan. Now, please let your servants dwell in the land of Goshen. Bereshit 47:4


+ 139 And Pharaoh spoke to Joseph, saying, Your father and your brothers have come to you. Bereshit 47:5


+ 229 The land of Egypt is open before you; in the best of the land settle your father and your brothers. Let them dwell in the land of Goshen, and if you know that there are capable men among them, make them livestock officers over what is mine. Bereshit 47:6


+ 169 And Pharaoh said to Jacob, How many are the days of the years of your life? Bereshit 47:8


+ 154 And Joseph sustained his father and his brothers and his father's entire household with bread according to the young children. Bereshit 47:12


+ 171 Now the money was depleted from the land of Egypt and from the land of Canaan, and all the Egyptians came to Joseph, saying, "Give us food; why should we die in your presence, since the money has been used up?" Bereshit 47:15


+ 149 And Joseph said, Give me your livestock, and I will give you food in return for your livestock, if the money has been used up. Bereshit 47:16


+ 190 Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our farmland? Buy us and our farmland for food, so that we and our farmland will be slaves to Pharaoh, and give us seed, so that we live and not die, and the soil will not lie fallow." Bereshit 47:19


+ 155 Joseph said to the people, Behold, I have bought you and your farmland today for Pharaoh. Behold, you have seed, so sow the soil. Bereshit 47:23


+ 180 And it shall be concerning the crops, that you shall give a fifth to Pharaoh, and the remaining four parts shall be yours: for seed for your fields, for your food, for those in your houses, and for your young children to eat." Bereshit 47:24


+ 159 They replied, You have saved our lives! Let us find favor in my lord's eyes, and we will be slaves to Pharaoh. Bereshit 47:25


+ 190 When the time drew near for Israel to die, he called his son Joseph and said to him, "If I have now found favor in your eyes, now place your hand beneath my thigh, and you shall deal with me with lovingkindness and truth; do not bury me now in Egypt. Bereshit 47:29


+ 163 I will lie with my forefathers, and you shall carry me out of Egypt, and you shall bury me in their grave." And he said, "I will do as you say." Bereshit 47:30


+ 156 Now it came to pass after these incidents that someone said to Joseph, "Behold, your father is ill." So he took his two sons with him, Manasseh and Ephraim. Bereshit 48:1


+ 166 And someone told Jacob and said, Behold, your son Joseph is coming to you. And Israel summoned his strength and sat up on the bed. Bereshit 48:2


+ 179 And He said to me, Behold, I will make you fruitful and cause you to multiply, and I will make you into a congregation of peoples, and I will give this land to your seed after you for an everlasting inheritance. Bereshit 48:4


+ 165 And now, as for your two sons, who were born to you in the land of Egypt, until I came to you, to the land of Egypt they are mine. Ephraim and Manasseh shall be mine like Reuben and Simeon. Bereshit 48:5


+ 149 But your children, if you beget any after them, shall be yours; by their brothers' names they shall be called in their inheritance. Bereshit 48:6


+ 180 And Israel said to Joseph, "I had not expected to see even your face, and behold, God has shown me your children too." Bereshit 48:11


+ 187 But Israel stretched out his right hand and placed it on Ephraim's head, although he was the younger, and his left hand he placed on Manasseh's head. He guided his hands deliberately, for Manasseh was the firstborn. Bereshit 48:14


+ 210 May the angel who redeemed me from all harm bless the youths, and may they be called by my name and the name of my fathers, Abraham and Isaac, and may they multiply abundantly like fish, in the midst of the land. Bereshit 48:16


+ 138 And Joseph said to his father, "Not so, Father, for this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head." Bereshit 48:18


+ 180 But his father refused, and he said, I know, my son, I know; he too will become a people, and he too will be great. But his younger brother will be greater than he, and his children's fame will fill the nations." Bereshit 48:19


+ 148 So he blessed them on that day, saying, With you, Israel will bless, saying, May God make you like Ephraim and like Manasseh, and he placed Ephraim before Manasseh. Bereshit 48:20


+ 194 And Israel said to Joseph, Behold, I am going to die, and God will be with you, and He will return you to the land of your forefathers. Bereshit 48:21


+ 143 And I have given you one portion over your brothers, which I took from the hand of the Amorite with my sword and with my bow. Bereshit 48:22


+ 175 Jacob called for his sons and said, Gather and I will tell you what will happen to you at the end of days. Bereshit 49:1


+ 165 Gather and listen, sons of Jacob, and listen to Israel, your father. Bereshit 49:2


+ 138 Reuben, you are my firstborn, my strength and the first of my might. You should have been superior in rank and superior in power. Bereshit 49:3


+ 158 You have the restlessness of water; therefore, you shall not have superiority, for you ascended upon your father's couch; then you profaned Him Who ascended upon my bed. Bereshit 49:4


+ 168 Let my soul not enter their counsel; my honor, you shall not join their assembly, for in their wrath they killed a man, and with their will they hamstrung a bull. Bereshit 49:6


+ 163 Judah, as for you, your brothers will acknowledge you. Your hand will be at the nape of your enemies, and your father's sons will prostrate themselves to you. Bereshit 49:8


+ 162 A cub and a grown lion is Judah. From the prey, my son, you withdrew. He crouched, rested like a lion, and like a lion, who will rouse him? Bereshit 49:9


+ 161 He binds his foal to a vine, and to a tendril he binds his young donkey. He launders his garment with wine, and with the blood of grapes binds his raiment. Bereshit 49:11


+ 115 For Your salvation, I hope, O Lord! Bereshit 49:18


+ 180 From the God of your father, and He will help you, and with the Almighty, and He will bless you with the blessings of the heavens above, the blessings of the deep, lying below, the blessings of father and mother. Bereshit 49:25


+ 201 The blessings of your father surpassed the blessings of my parents, the ends of the everlasting hills. May they come to Joseph's head and to the crown of the head of the one who was separated from his brothers. Bereshit 49:26


+ 163 When the days of his weeping had passed, Joseph spoke to Pharaoh's household, saying, If now I have found favor in your eyes, speak now in Pharaoh's ears, saying, Bereshit 50:4


+ 181 My father adjured me, saying, Behold, I am going to die. In my grave, which I dug for myself in the land of Canaan, there you shall bury me. So now, please let me go up and bury my father and return. Bereshit 50:5


+ 128 And Pharaoh said, Go up and bury your father as he adjured you. Bereshit 50:6


+ 177 And Joseph's entire household and his brothers and his father's household; only their young children and their flocks and cattle did they leave in the land of Goshen. Bereshit 50:8


+ 143 So they commanded messengers to go to Joseph, to say, Your father commanded us before his death, saying, Bereshit 50:16


+ 218 So shall you say to Joseph, Please, forgive now your brothers transgression and their sin, for they did evil to you. Now please forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father. Joseph wept when they spoke to him. Bereshit 50:17


+ 144 His brothers also went and fell before him, and they said, Behold, we are your slaves. Bereshit 50:18


+ 174 Indeed, you intended evil against me, but God designed it for good, in order to bring about what is at present to keep a great populace alive. Bereshit 50:20


+ 149 So now do not fear. I will sustain you and your small children. And he comforted them and spoke to their hearts. Bereshit 50:21


+ 221 Joseph said to his brothers, I am going to die; God will surely remember you and take you up out of this land to the land that He swore to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. Bereshit 50:24


+ 189 And Joseph adjured the children of Israel, saying, God will surely remember you, and you shall take up my bones out of here. Bereshit 50:25


+ 170 And he said, When you deliver the Hebrew women, and you see on the birthstool, if it is a son, you shall put him to death, but if it is a daughter, she may live. Shemot 1:16


+ 178 So the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and said to them, Why have you done this thing, that you have enabled the boys to live? Shemot 1:18


+ 176 And Pharaoh commanded all his people, saying, Every son who is born you shall cast into the Nile, and every daughter you shall allow to live. Shemot 1:22


+ 162 His sister said to Pharaoh's daughter, Shall I go and call for you a wet nurse from the Hebrew women, so that she shall nurse the child for you? Shemot 2:7


+ 173 Pharaoh's daughter said to her, Take this child and nurse him for me, and I will give you your wages. So the woman took the child and nursed him. Shemot 2:9


+ 171 He went out on the second day, and behold, two Hebrew men were quarreling, and he said to the wicked one, Why are you going to strike your friend? Shemot 2:13


+ 189 And he retorted, Who made you a man, a prince, and a judge over us? Do you plan to slay me as you have slain the Egyptian? Moses became frightened and said, Indeed, the matter has become known! Shemot 2:14


+ 146 They came to their father Reuel, and he said, Why have you come so quickly today? Shemot 2:18


+ 156 He said to his daughters, So where is he? Why have you left the man? Invite him, and let him eat bread. Shemot 2:20


+ 140 And He said, Do not draw near here. Take your shoes off your feet, because the place upon which you stand is holy soil. Shemot 3:5


+ 168 And He said, I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face because he was afraid to look toward God. Shemot 3:6


+ 147 So now come, and I will send you to Pharaoh, and take My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt. Shemot 3:10


+ 147 And He said, For I will be with you, and this is the sign for you that it was I Who sent you. When you take the people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this mountain. Shemot 3:12


+ 165 And Moses said to God, Behold I come to the children of Israel, and I say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? what shall I say to them? Shemot 3:13


+ 175 God said to Moses, Ehyeh asher ehyeh I will be what I will be, and He said, So shall you say to the children of Israel, Ehyeh has sent me to you. Shemot 3:14


+ 176 And God said further to Moses, So shall you say to the children of Israel, The Lord God of your forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is how I should be mentioned in every generation. Shemot 3:15


+ 175 Go and assemble the elders of Israel, and say to them, The Lord God of your forefathers has appeared to me, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying, I have surely remembered you and what is being done to you in Egypt. Shemot 3:16


+ 162 And I said, I will bring you up out of the affliction of Egypt, to the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, to a land flowing with milk and honey. Shemot 3:17


+ 160 And they will hearken to your voice, and you shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt, and you shall say to him, The Lord God of the Hebrews has happened upon us, and now, let us go for a three days journey in the desert and offer up sacrifices to the Lord, our God. Shemot 3:18


+ 129 However, I know that the king of Egypt will not permit you to go, except through a mighty hand. Shemot 3:19


+ 157 And I will stretch forth My hand and smite the Egyptians with all My miracles that I will wreak in their midst, and afterwards he will send you out. Shemot 3:20


+ 129 And I will put this people's favor in the eyes of the Egyptians, and it will come to pass that when you go, you will not go empty handed. Shemot 3:21


+ 153 Each woman shall borrow from her neighbor and from the dweller in her house silver and gold objects and garments, and you shall put them on your sons and on your daughters, and you shall empty out Egypt. Shemot 3:22


+ 174 Moses answered and said, Behold they will not believe me, and they will not heed my voice, but they will say, The Lord has not appeared to you. Shemot 4:1


+ 119 And the Lord said to him, What is this in your hand? And he said, A staff. Shemot 4:2


+ 146 And the Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand and take hold of its tail. So Moses stretched forth his hand and grasped it, and it became a staff in his hand. Shemot 4:4


+ 215 In order that they believe that the Lord, the God of their forefathers, has appeared to you, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Shemot 4:5


+ 145 And the Lord said further to him, Now put your hand into your bosom, and he put his hand into his bosom, and he took it out, and behold, his hand was leprous like snow. Shemot 4:6


+ 167 And He said, Put your hand back into your bosom, and he put his hand back into his bosom, and when he took it out of his bosom, it had become again like the rest of his flesh. Shemot 4:7


+ 131 And it will come to pass, that if they do not believe you, and they do not heed the voice of the first sign, they will believe the voice of the last sign. Shemot 4:8


+ 146 And it will come to pass, if they do not believe either of these two signs, and they do not heed your voice, you shall take of the water of the Nile and spill it upon the dry land, and the water that you take from the Nile will become blood on the dry land." Shemot 4:9


+ 150 Moses said to the Lord, I beseech You, O Lord. I am not a man of words, neither from yesterday nor from the day before yesterday, nor from the time You have spoken to Your servant, for I am heavy of mouth and heavy of tongue. Shemot 4:10


+ 144 So now, go! I will be with your mouth, and I will instruct you what you shall speak. Shemot 4:12


+ 137 But he said, I beseech You, O Lord, send now Your message with whom You would send. Shemot 4:13


+ 175 And the Lord's wrath was kindled against Moses, and He said, Is there not Aaron your brother, the Levite? I know that he will surely speak, and behold, he is coming forth toward you, and when he sees you, he will rejoice in his heart. Shemot 4:14


+ 147 You shall speak to him, and you shall put the words into his mouth, and I will be with your mouth and with his mouth, and I will instruct you both what you shall do. Shemot 4:15


+ 130 And he will speak for you to the people, and it will be that he will be your speaker, and you will be his leader. Shemot 4:16


+ 149 And you shall take this staff in your hand, with which you shall perform the signs. Shemot 4:17


+ 169 The Lord said to Moses in Midian, Go, return to Egypt, for all the people who sought your life have died. Shemot 4:19


+ 178 The Lord said to Moses, When you go to return to Egypt, see all the signs that I have placed in your hand and perform them before Pharaoh, but I will strengthen his heart, and he will not send out the people. Shemot 4:21


+ 141 And you shall say to Pharaoh, So said the Lord, My firstborn son is Israel. Shemot 4:22


+ 146 So I say to you, Send out My son so that he will worship Me, but if you refuse to send him out, behold, I am going to slay your firstborn son. Shemot 4:23


+ 148 So Zipporah took a sharp stone and severed her son's foreskin and cast it to his feet, and she said, For you are a bridegroom of blood to me. Shemot 4:25


+ 166 But the king of Egypt said to them, Why, Moses and Aaron, do you disturb the people from their work? Go to your own labors. Shemot 5:4


+ 153 And Pharaoh said, Behold, now the people of the land are many, and you are stopping them from their labors. Shemot 5:5


+ 143 You shall not continue to give stubble to the people to make the bricks like yesterday and the day before yesterday. Let them go and gather stubble for themselves. Shemot 5:7


+ 198 But the number of bricks they have been making yesterday and the day before yesterday you shall impose upon them; you shall not reduce it, for they are lax. Therefore they cry out, saying, Let us go and sacrifice to our God. Shemot 5:8


+ 147 So the taskmasters of the people and their officers came out and spoke to the people, saying, So said Pharaoh, I am not giving you stubble. Shemot 5:10


+ 173 You go take for yourselves stubble from wherever you find it, because nothing will be reduced from your work. Shemot 5:11


+ 164 And the taskmasters were pressing them, saying, Finish your work, the requirement of each day in its day, just as when there was stubble. Shemot 5:13


+ 176 And the officers of the children of Israel whom Pharaoh's taskmasters had appointed over them were beaten, saying, Why have you not completed your quota to make bricks like the day before yesterday, neither yesterday nor today? Shemot 5:14


+ 146 So the officers of the children of Israel came and cried out to Pharaoh, saying, Why do you do this to your servants? Shemot 5:15


+ 183 Stubble is not given to your servants, but they tell us, Make bricks, and behold, your servants are beaten, and your people are sinning. Shemot 5:16


+ 143 But he said, You are lax, just lax. Therefore, you say, Let us go, let us sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 5:17


+ 156 And now, go and work, but you will not be given stubble. Nevertheless, the same number of bricks you must give. Shemot 5:18


+ 156 The officers of the children of Israel saw them in distress, saying, Do not reduce the number of your bricks, the requirement of each day in its day. Shemot 5:19


+ 173 And they said to them, May the Lord look upon you and judge, for you have brought us into foul odor in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of his servants, to place a sword into their hands to kill us. Shemot 5:21


+ 144 So Moses returned to the Lord and said, O Lord! Why have You harmed this people? Why have You sent me? Shemot 5:22


+ 151 Since I have come to Pharaoh to speak in Your name, he has harmed this people, and You have not saved Your people. Shemot 5:23


+ 154 And the Lord said to Moses, Now you will see what I will do to Pharaoh, for with a mighty hand he will send them out, and with a mighty hand he will drive them out of his land. Shemot 6:1


+ 160 Therefore, say to the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will take you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will save you from their labor, and I will redeem you with an outstretched arm and with great judgments. Shemot 6:6


+ 143 And I will take you to Me as a people, and I will be a God to you, and you will know that I am the Lord your God, Who has brought you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians. Shemot 6:7


+ 173 I will bring you to the land, concerning which I raised My hand to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, and I will give it to you as a heritage; I am the Lord. Shemot 6:8


+ 127 That the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, I am the Lord. Speak to Pharaoh everything that I speak to you. Shemot 6:29


+ 159 The Lord said to Moses, See! I have made you a lord over Pharaoh, and Aaron, your brother, will be your speaker. Shemot 7:1


+ 148 You shall speak all that I command you, and Aaron, your brother, shall speak to Pharaoh, that he let the children of Israel out of his land. Shemot 7:2


+ 167 But Pharaoh will not hearken to you, and I will lay My hand upon the Egyptians, and I will take My legions, My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt with great judgments. Shemot 7:4


+ 162 When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, Provide a sign for yourselves, you shall say to Aaron, Take your staff, and cast it before Pharaoh; it will become a serpent. Shemot 7:9


+ 161 Go to Pharaoh in the morning; behold, he is going forth to the water, and you shall stand opposite him on the bank of the Nile, and the staff that was turned into a serpent you shall take in your hand. Shemot 7:15


+ 173 And you shall say to him, The Lord God of the Hebrews sent me to you, saying, Send forth My people, so that they may serve Me in the desert, but behold, until now, you have not hearkened. Shemot 7:16


+ 156 So said the Lord, With this you will know that I am the Lord. Behold, I will smite with the staff that is in my hand upon the water that is in the Nile, and it will turn to blood. Shemot 7:17


+ 173 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Take your staff and stretch forth your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their rivers, over their canals, over their ponds, and over all their bodies of water, and they will become blood, and there will be blood throughout the entire land of Egypt, even in wood and in stone. Shemot 7:19


+ 129 But if you refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all your borders with frogs. Shemot 7:27


+ 165 And the Nile will swarm with frogs, and they will go up and come into your house and into your bedroom and upon your bed and into the house of your servants and into your people, and into your ovens and into your kneading troughs; Shemot 7:28


+ 141 And into you and into your people and into all your servants, the frogs will ascend. Shemot 7:29


+ 175 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, stretch forth your hand with your staff over the rivers, over the canals, and over the ponds, and bring up the frogs on the land of Egypt. Shemot 8:1


+ 184 And Moses said to Pharaoh, Boast of your superiority over me. For when shall I entreat for you, for your servants, and for your people, to destroy the frogs from you and from your houses, that they should remain only in the Nile? Shemot 8:5


+ 177 And Pharaoh said, For tomorrow. And Moses said, As you say, in order that you should know that there is none like the Lord, our God. Shemot 8:6


+ 153 And the frogs will depart from you and from your houses and from your servants and from your people; only in the Nile will they remain. Shemot 8:7


+ 154 The Lord said to Moses, Say to Aaron, Stretch forth your staff and strike the dust of the earth, and it shall become lice throughout the entire land of Egypt. Shemot 8:12


+ 164 And the Lord said to Moses, Arise early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh, behold, he is going out to the water, and you shall say to him, So said the Lord, Let My people go out and serve Me. Shemot 8:16


+ 169 For if you do not let My people go, behold, I will incite against you and against your servants and against your people and in your houses a mixture of noxious creatures, and the houses of Egypt will be filled with the mixture of noxious creatures, as well as the land upon which they are. Shemot 8:17


+ 185 And I will separate on that day the land of Goshen, upon which My people stand, that there will be no mixture of noxious creatures there, in order that you know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth. Shemot 8:18


+ 144 And I will make a redemption between My people and your people; this sign will come about tomorrow." ' " Shemot 8:19


+ 173 Thereupon, Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron, and he said, "Go, sacrifice to your God in the land." Shemot 8:21


+ 162 Pharaoh said, I will let you go out, and you will sacrifice to the Lord, your God, in the desert, but do not go far away; entreat Him on my behalf. Shemot 8:24


+ 199 Moses said, Behold, I am going away from you, and I will entreat the Lord, and the mixture of noxious creatures will depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people tomorrow. Only let Pharaoh not tease anymore, by not letting the people go to sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 8:25


+ 154 For if you refuse to let them go, and you still hold on to them, Shemot 9:2


+ 163 Behold, the hand of the Lord will be upon your livestock that is in the field, upon the horses, upon the donkeys, upon the camels, upon the cattle, and upon the sheep, a very severe pestilence. Shemot 9:3


+ 154 The Lord said to Moses and to Aaron, "Take yourselves handfuls of furnace soot, and Moses shall cast it heavenward before Pharaoh's eyes. Shemot 9:8


+ 181 Because this time, I am sending all My plagues into your heart and into your servants and into your people, in order that you know that there is none like Me in the entire earth. Shemot 9:14


+ 174 For if now I had stretched forth My hand, and I had smitten you and your people with pestilence, you would have been annihilated from the earth. Shemot 9:15


+ 150 But, for this reason I have allowed you to stand, in order to show you My strength and in order to declare My name all over the earth. Shemot 9:16


+ 149 If you still tread upon My people, not letting them out, Shemot 9:17


+ 191 And now, send, gather in your livestock and all that you have in the field, any man or beast that is found in the field and not brought into the house the hail shall fall on them, and they will die. Shemot 9:19


+ 172 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand heavenward, and hail will be upon the entire land of Egypt, upon man and upon beast and upon all the vegetation of the field in the land of Egypt. Shemot 9:22


+ 125 Entreat the Lord, and let it be enough of God's thunder and hail, and I will let you go, and you shall not continue to stand. Shemot 9:28


+ 163 And Moses said to him, When I leave the city, I will spread my hands to the Lord. The thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, in order that you know that the land is the Lord's. Shemot 9:29


+ 154 But you and your servants I know that you still do not fear the Lord God, Shemot 9:30


+ 151 And in order that you tell into the ears of your son and your son's son how I made a mockery of the Egyptians, and that you tell of My signs that I placed in them, and you will know that I am the Lord. Shemot 10:2


+ 162 So Moses and Aaron came to Pharaoh and said to him, So said the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, How long will you refuse to humble yourself before Me? Let My people go, and they will worship Me. Shemot 10:3


+ 139 For if you refuse to let them go, behold, tomorrow I am going to bring locusts into your borders. Shemot 10:4


+ 161 And they will obscure the view of the earth, and no one will be able to see the earth, and they will eat the surviving remnant, which remains for you from the hail, and they will eat all your trees that grow out of the field. Shemot 10:5


+ 173 And your houses and the houses of all your servants and the houses of all the Egyptians will be filled, which your fathers and your fathers fathers did not see since the day they were on the earth until this day. Therewith, he turned and left Pharaoh. Shemot 10:6


+ 171 Pharaoh's servants said to him, How long will this one be a stumbling block to us? Let the people go and they will worship their God. Don't you yet know that Egypt is lost? Shemot 10:7


+ 162 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh, and he said to them, Go, worship the Lord your God. Who and who are going? Shemot 10:8


+ 162 Moses said, With our youth and with our elders we will go, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our cattle we will go, for it is a festival of the Lord to us. Shemot 10:9


+ 148 So he said to them, So may the Lord be with you, just as I will let you and your young children out. See that evil is before your faces. Shemot 10:10


+ 135 Not so; let the men go now and worship the Lord, for that is what you request. And he chased them out from before Pharaoh. Shemot 10:11


+ 167 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, and they will ascend over the land of Egypt, and they will eat all the vegetation of the earth, all that the hail has left over. Shemot 10:12


+ 163 Pharaoh hastened to summon Moses and Aaron, and he said, I have sinned against the Lord your God and against you. Shemot 10:16


+ 139 But now, forgive now my sin only this time and entreat the Lord your God, and let Him remove from me just this death. Shemot 10:17


+ 151 The Lord said to Moses, Stretch forth your hand toward the heavens, and there will be darkness over the land of Egypt, and the darkness will become darker. Shemot 10:21


+ 165 Pharaoh summoned Moses and said, Go! Worship the Lord, but your flocks and your cattle shall be left. Your young children may also go with you. Shemot 10:24


+ 181 But Moses said, You too shall give sacrifices and burnt offerings into our hands, and we will make them for the Lord our God. Shemot 10:25


+ 148 Pharaoh said to him, Go away from me! Beware! You shall no longer see my face, for on the day that you see my face, you shall die! Shemot 10:28


+ 153 Thereupon, Moses said, You have spoken correctly; I shall no longer see your face. Shemot 10:29


+ 185 The Lord said to Moses, I will bring one more plague upon Pharaoh and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go from here. When he lets you out, he will completely drive you out of here. Shemot 11:1


+ 136 But to all the children of Israel, not one dog will whet its tongue against either man or beast, in order that you shall know that the Lord will separate between the Egyptians and between Israel. Shemot 11:7


+ 161 And all these servants of yours will come down to me and prostrate themselves to me, saying, Go out, you and all the people who are at your feet, and afterwards I will go out. Then he exited from Pharaoh with burning anger. Shemot 11:8


+ 148 The Lord said to Moses, Pharaoh will not heed you, in order to increase My miracles in the land of Egypt. Shemot 11:9


+ 118 This month shall be to you the head of the months; to you it shall be the first of the months of the year. Shemot 12:2


+ 143 But if the household is too small for a lamb, then he and his neighbor who is nearest to his house shall take one according to the number of people, each one according to one's ability to eat, shall you be counted for the lamb. Shemot 12:4


+ 132 You shall have a perfect male lamb in its first year; you may take it either from the sheep or from the goats. Shemot 12:5


+ 155 And you shall keep it for inspection until the fourteenth day of this month, and the entire congregation of the community of Israel shall slaughter it in the afternoon. Shemot 12:6


+ 138 You shall not eat it rare or boiled in water, except roasted over the fire its head with its legs and with its innards. Shemot 12:9


+ 122 And you shall not leave over any of it until morning, and whatever is left over of it until morning, you shall burn in fire. Shemot 12:10


+ 141 And this is how you shall eat it: your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste it is a Passover sacrifice to the Lord. Shemot 12:11


+ 139 And the blood will be for you for a sign upon the houses where you will be, and I will see the blood and skip over you, and there will be no plague to destroy you when I smite the people of the land of Egypt. Shemot 12:13


+ 117 And this day shall be for you as a memorial, and you shall celebrate it as a festival for the Lord; throughout your generations, you shall celebrate it as an everlasting statute. Shemot 12:14


+ 157 For seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes, but on the preceding day you shall clear away all leaven from your houses, for whoever eats leaven from the first day until the seventh day that soul shall be cut off from Israel. Shemot 12:15


+ 139 And on the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and on the seventh day you shall have a holy convocation; no work may be performed on them, but what is eaten by any soul that alone may be performed for you. Shemot 12:16


+ 146 And you shall watch over the unleavened cakes, for on this very day I have taken your legions out of the land of Egypt, and you shall observe this day throughout your generations, as an everlasting statute. Shemot 12:17


+ 133 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, you shall eat unleavened cakes, until the twenty first day of the month in the evening. Shemot 12:18


+ 164 For seven days, leavening shall not be found in your houses, for whoever eats leavening that soul shall be cut off from the community of Israel, both among the strangers and the native born of the land. Shemot 12:19


+ 142 You shall not eat any leavening; throughout all your dwellings you shall eat unleavened cakes." Shemot 12:20


+ 165 Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them, Draw forth or buy for yourselves sheep for your families and slaughter the Passover sacrifice. Shemot 12:21


+ 149 And you shall take a bunch of hyssop and immerse it in the blood that is in the basin, and you shall extend to the lintel and to the two doorposts the blood that is in the basin, and you shall not go out, any man from the entrance of his house until morning. Shemot 12:22


+ 162 The Lord will pass to smite the Egyptians, and He will see the blood on the lintel and on the two doorposts, and the Lord will pass over the entrance, and He will not permit the destroyer to enter your houses to smite you. Shemot 12:23


+ 132 And you shall keep this matter as a statute for you and for your children forever. Shemot 12:24


+ 120 And it shall come to pass when you enter the land that the Lord will give you, as He spoke, that you shall observe this service. Shemot 12:25


+ 130 And it will come to pass if your children say to you, What is this service to you? Shemot 12:26


+ 167 You shall say, It is a Passover sacrifice to the Lord, for He passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, and He saved our houses. And the people kneeled and prostrated themselves. Shemot 12:27


+ 167 So he called for Moses and Aaron at night, and he said, Get up and get out from among my people, both you, as well as the children of Israel, and go, worship the Lord as you have spoken. Shemot 12:31


+ 125 Take also your flocks and also your cattle, as you have spoken, and go, but you shall also bless me. Shemot 12:32


+ 153 The children of Israel journeyed from Rameses to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot, the men, besides the young children. Shemot 12:37


+ 144 And every man's slave, purchased for his money you shall circumcise him; then he will be permitted to partake of it. Shemot 12:44


+ 137 It must be eaten in one house; you shall not take any of the meat out of the house to the outside, neither shall you break any of its bones. Shemot 12:46


+ 179 And should a proselyte reside with you, he shall make a Passover sacrifice to the Lord. All his males shall be circumcised, and then he may approach to make it, and he will be like the native of the land, but no uncircumcised male may partake of it. Shemot 12:48


+ 121 There shall be one law for the native and for the stranger who resides in your midst." Shemot 12:49


+ 169 Moses said to the people, Remember this day, when you went out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, for with a mighty hand, the Lord took you out of here, and therefore no leaven shall be eaten. Shemot 13:3


+ 130 Today you are going out, in the month of spring. Shemot 13:4


+ 161 And it will come to pass that the Lord will bring you into the land of the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Amorites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, which He swore to your forefathers to give you a land flowing with milk and honey and you shall perform this service in this month. Shemot 13:5


+ 144 For seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes, and on the seventh day, there is a festival for the Lord. Shemot 13:6


+ 155 Unleavened cakes shall be eaten during the seven days, and no leaven shall be seen of yours in your possession, and no leavening shall be seen of yours throughout all of your borders. Shemot 13:7


+ 142 And you shall tell your son on that day, saying, Because of this, the Lord did this for me when I went out of Egypt. Shemot 13:8


+ 135 And it shall be to you as a sign upon your hand and as a remembrance between your eyes, in order that the law of the Lord shall be in your mouth, for with a mighty hand the Lord took you out of Egypt. Shemot 13:9


+ 141 And you shall keep this statute at its appointed time, from year to year. Shemot 13:10


+ 123 And it will come to pass when the Lord will bring you into the land of the Canaanites, as He swore to you and to your forefathers, and He has given it to you, Shemot 13:11


+ 161 That you shall give over to the Lord whatever opens the womb, and every miscarriage that opens the womb of an animal which will be yours, the males belong to the Lord. Shemot 13:12


+ 128 And every firstborn donkey you shall redeem with a lamb, and if you do not redeem it, you shall decapitate it, and every firstborn of man among your sons, you shall redeem. Shemot 13:13


+ 144 And it will come to pass if your son asks you in the future, saying, What is this? you shall say to him, With a mighty hand did the Lord take us out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Shemot 13:14


+ 121 And it shall be for a sign upon your hand and for ornaments between your eyes, for with a mighty hand did the Lord take us out of Egypt. Shemot 13:16


+ 181 Moses took Joseph's bones with him, for he had adjured the sons of Israel, saying, God will surely remember you, and you shall bring up my bones from here with you. Shemot 13:19


+ 145 Speak to the children of Israel, and let them turn back and encamp in front of Pi hahiroth, between Migdol and the sea; in front of Baal Zephon, you shall encamp opposite it, by the sea. Shemot 14:2


+ 173 They said to Moses, Is it because there are no graves in Egypt that you have taken us to die in the desert? What is this that you have done to us to take us out of Egypt? Shemot 14:11


+ 126 Isn't this the thing about which we spoke to you in Egypt, saying, Leave us alone, and we will serve the Egyptians, because we would rather serve the Egyptians than die in the desert. Shemot 14:12


+ 178 Moses said to the people, Don't be afraid! Stand firm and see the Lord's salvation that He will wreak for you today, for the way you have seen the Egyptians is only today, but you shall no longer continue to see them for eternity. Shemot 14:13


+ 135 The Lord will fight for you, but you shall remain silent. Shemot 14:14


+ 147 The Lord said to Moses, Why do you cry out to Me? Speak to the children of Israel and let them travel. Shemot 14:15


+ 131 And you raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea and split it, and the children of Israel shall come in the midst of the sea on dry land. Shemot 14:16


+ 126 And I, behold! I shall harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they will come after you, and I will be glorified through Pharaoh, and through all his force, through his chariots, and through his horsemen. Shemot 14:17


+ 140 Thereupon, the Lord said to Moses, Stretch out your hand over the sea, and let the water return upon the Egyptians, upon their chariots, and upon their horsemen. Shemot 14:26


+ 122 Your right hand, O Lord, is most powerful; Your right hand, O Lord, crushes the foe. Shemot 15:6


+ 147 And with Your great pride You tear down those who rise up against You; You send forth Your burning wrath; it devours them like straw. Shemot 15:7


+ 146 And with the breath of Your nostrils the waters were heaped up; the running water stood erect like a wall; the depths congealed in the heart of the sea. Shemot 15:8


+ 134 You blew with Your wind, the sea covered them; they sank like lead in the powerful waters. Shemot 15:10


+ 149 Who is like You among the powerful, O Lord? Who is like You, powerful in the holy place? Too awesome for praises, performing wonders! Shemot 15:11


+ 138 You inclined Your right hand; the earth swallowed them up. Shemot 15:12


+ 129 With Your loving kindness You led the people You redeemed; You led them with Your might to Your holy abode. Shemot 15:13


+ 157 May dread and fright fall upon them; with the arm of Your greatness may they become as still as a stone, until Your people cross over, O Lord, until this nation that You have acquired crosses over. Shemot 15:16


+ 137 You shall bring them and plant them on the mount of Your heritage, directed toward Your habitation, which You made, O Lord; the sanctuary, O Lord, which Your hands founded. Shemot 15:17


+ 182 And He said, If you hearken to the voice of the Lord, your God, and you do what is proper in His eyes, and you listen closely to His commandments and observe all His statutes, all the sicknesses that I have visited upon Egypt I will not visit upon you, for I, the Lord, heal you. Shemot 15:26


+ 181 The children of Israel said to them, If only we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt, when we sat by pots of meat, when we ate bread to our fill! For you have brought us out into this desert, to starve this entire congregation to death. Shemot 16:3


+ 170 So the Lord said to Moses, Behold! I am going to rain down for you bread from heaven, and the people shall go out and gather what is needed for the day, so that I can test them, whether or not they will follow My teaching. Shemot 16:4


+ 144 Thereupon, Moses and Aaron said to all the children of Israel, In the evening, you shall know that the Lord brought you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:6


+ 149 And in the morning, you shall see the glory of the Lord when He hears your complaints against the Lord but of what significance are we, that you make the people complain against us? Shemot 16:7


+ 181 And Moses said, When the Lord gives you in the evening meat to eat and bread in the morning with which to become sated, when the Lord hears your complaints, which you are making the people complain against Him, but of what significance are we? Not against us are your complaints, but against the Lord. Shemot 16:8


+ 155 And Moses said to Aaron, Say to the entire community of the children of Israel, Draw near before the Lord, for He has heard your complaints. Shemot 16:9


+ 164 I have heard the complaints of the children of Israel. Speak to them, saying, In the afternoon you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be sated with bread, and you shall know that I am the Lord, your God. Shemot 16:12


+ 143 When the children of Israel saw it, they said to one another, It is manna, because they did not know what it was, and Moses said to them, It is the bread that the Lord has given you to eat. Shemot 16:15


+ 130 This is the thing that the Lord has commanded, Gather of it each one according to his eating capacity, an omer for each person, according to the number of persons, each one for those in his tent you shall take. Shemot 16:16


+ 154 So he said to them, That is what the Lord spoke, Tomorrow is a rest day, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. Bake whatever you wish to bake, and cook whatever you wish to cook, and all the rest leave over to keep until morning. Shemot 16:23


+ 133 And Moses said, Eat it today, for today is a Sabbath to the Lord; today you will not find it in the field. Shemot 16:25


+ 169 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day which is the Sabbath on it there will be none. Shemot 16:26


+ 141 The Lord said to Moses, How long will you refuse to observe My commandments and My teachings? Shemot 16:28


+ 152 See that the Lord has given you the Sabbath. Therefore, on the sixth day, He gives you bread for two days. Let each man remain in his place; let no man leave his place on the seventh day. Shemot 16:29


+ 155 Moses said, This is the thing that the Lord commanded: Let one omerful of it be preserved for your generations, in order that they see the bread that I fed you in the desert when I took you out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 16:32


+ 140 And Moses said to Aaron, Take one jug and put there an omerful of manna, and deposit it before the Lord to be preserved for your generations. Shemot 16:33


+ 145 So the people quarreled with Moses, and they said, Give us water that we may drink Moses said to them, Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you test the Lord? Shemot 17:2


+ 201 The people thirsted there for water, and the people complained against Moses, and they said, Why have you brought us up from Egypt to make me and my children and my livestock die of thirst? Shemot 17:3


+ 158 And the Lord said to Moses, Pass before the people and take with you some of the elders of Israel, and take into your hand your staff, with which you struck the Nile, and go. Shemot 17:5


+ 149 Behold, I shall stand there before you on the rock in Horeb, and you shall strike the rock, and water will come out of it, and the people will drink Moses did so before the eyes of the elders of Israel. Shemot 17:6


+ 146 And he said to Moses, I, Jethro, your father in law, am coming to you, and so is your wife and her two sons with her. Shemot 18:6


+ 161 Thereupon, Jethro said, Blessed is the Lord, Who has rescued you from the hands of the Egyptians and from the hand of Pharaoh, Who has rescued the people from beneath the hand of the Egyptians. Shemot 18:10


+ 148 When Moses father in law saw what he was doing to the people, he said, What is this thing that you are doing to the people? Why do you sit by yourself, while all the people stand before you from morning till evening? Shemot 18:14


+ 145 Moses father in law said to him, The thing you are doing is not good. Shemot 18:17


+ 138 You will surely wear yourself out both you and these people who are with you for the matter is too heavy for you; you cannot do it alone. Shemot 18:18


+ 132 Now listen to me. I will advise you, and may the Lord be with you. You represent the people before God, and you shall bring the matters to God. Shemot 18:19


+ 147 And you shall admonish them concerning the statutes and the teachings, and you shall make known to them the way they shall go and the deeds they shall do. Shemot 18:20


+ 170 But you shall choose out of the entire nation men of substance, God fearers, men of truth, who hate monetary gain, and you shall appoint over them Israel leaders over thousands, leaders over hundreds, leaders over fifties, and leaders over tens. Shemot 18:21


+ 159 And they shall judge the people at all times, and it shall be that any major matter they shall bring to you, and they themselves shall judge every minor matter, thereby making it easier for you, and they shall bear the burden with you. Shemot 18:22


+ 145 If you do this thing, and the Lord commands you, you will be able to survive, and also, all this people will come upon their place in peace. Shemot 18:23


+ 173 Moses ascended to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, So shall you say to the house of Jacob and tell the sons of Israel, Shemot 19:3


+ 136 You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles wings, and I brought you to Me. Shemot 19:4


+ 136 And now, if you obey Me and keep My covenant, you shall be to Me a treasure out of all peoples, for Mine is the entire earth. Shemot 19:5


+ 134 And you shall be to Me a kingdom of princes and a holy nation. These are the words that you shall speak to the children of Israel. Shemot 19:6


+ 134 And the Lord said to Moses, Behold, I am coming to you in the thickness of the cloud, in order that the people hear when I speak to you, and they will also believe in you forever. And Moses relayed the words of the people to the Lord. Shemot 19:9


+ 142 And you shall set boundaries for the people around, saying, Beware of ascending the mountain or touching its edge; whoever touches the mountain shall surely be put to death. Shemot 19:12


+ 160 And Moses said to the Lord, The people cannot ascend to Mount Sinai, for You warned us saying, Set boundaries for the mountain and sanctify it. Shemot 19:23


+ 163 But the Lord said to him, Go, descend, and then you shall ascend, and Aaron with you, but the priests and the populace shall not break their formation to ascend to the Lord, lest He wreak destruction upon them. Shemot 19:24


+ 128 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Shemot 20:2


+ 144 You shall not have the gods of others in My presence. Shemot 20:3


+ 156 You shall not make for yourself a graven image or any likeness which is in the heavens above, which is on the earth below, or which is in the water beneath the earth. Shemot 20:4


+ 145 You shall neither prostrate yourself before them nor worship them, for I, the Lord, your God, am a zealous God, Who visits the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons, upon the third and the fourth generation of those who hate Me, Shemot 20:5


+ 133 You shall not take the name of the Lord, your God, in vain, for the Lord will not hold blameless anyone who takes His name in vain. Shemot 20:7


+ 131 Six days may you work and perform all your labor, Shemot 20:9


+ 182 But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord, your God; you shall perform no labor, neither you, your son, your daughter, your manservant, your maidservant, your beast, nor your stranger who is in your cities. Shemot 20:10


+ 134 Honor your father and your mother, in order that your days be lengthened on the land that the Lord, your God, is giving you. Shemot 20:12


+ 140 You shall not murder. You shall not commit adultery. You shall not steal. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Shemot 20:13


+ 149 You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, his manservant, his maidservant, his ox, his donkey, or whatever belongs to your neighbor. Shemot 20:14


+ 148 They said to Moses, You speak with us, and we will hear, but let God not speak with us lest we die. Shemot 20:16


+ 173 But Moses said to the people, Fear not, for God has come in order to exalt you, and in order that His awe shall be upon your faces, so that you shall not sin. Shemot 20:17


+ 192 The Lord said to Moses, So shall you say to the children of Israel, You have seen that from the heavens I have spoken with you. Shemot 20:19


+ 154 You shall not make images of anything that is with Me. Gods of silver or gods of gold you shall not make for yourselves. Shemot 20:20


+ 170 An altar of earth you shall make for Me, and you shall slaughter beside it your burnt offerings and your peace offerings, your sheep and your cattle. Wherever I allow My name to be mentioned, I will come to you and bless you. Shemot 20:21


+ 134 And when you make for Me an altar of stones, you shall not build them of hewn stones, lest you wield your sword upon it and desecrate it. Shemot 20:22


+ 130 And you shall not ascend with steps upon My altar, so that your nakedness shall not be exposed upon it. Shemot 20:23


+ 116 And these are the ordinances that you shall set before them. Shemot 21:1


+ 137 Should you buy a Hebrew slave, he shall work for six years, and in the seventh year, he shall go out to freedom without charge. Shemot 21:2


+ 137 But one who did not stalk him, but God brought it about into his hand, I will make a place for you to which he shall flee. Shemot 21:13


+ 135 But if a man plots deliberately against his friend to slay him with cunning, even from My altar you shall take him to die. Shemot 21:14


+ 144 But if there is a fatality, you shall give a life for a life, Shemot 21:23


+ 155 Or if it gores a young boy or a young girl, according to this ordinance shall be done to him. Shemot 21:31


+ 127 You shall not allow a sorceress to live. Shemot 22:17


+ 147 And you shall not mistreat a stranger, nor shall you oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt. Shemot 22:20


+ 125 You shall not oppress any widow or orphan. Shemot 22:21


+ 117 If you oppress him, beware, for if he cries out to Me, I will surely hear his cry. Shemot 22:22


+ 141 My wrath will be kindled, and I will slay you with the sword, and your wives will be widows and your children orphans. Shemot 22:23


+ 167 When you lend money to My people, to the poor person who is with you, you shall not behave toward him as a lender; you shall not impose interest upon him. Shemot 22:24


+ 125 If you take your neighbor's garment as security, until sunset you shall return it to him, Shemot 22:25


+ 123 You shall not curse a judge, neither shall you curse a prince among your people. Shemot 22:27


+ 133 Your fullness offering and your heave offering you shall not delay; the firstborn of your sons you shall give Me. Shemot 22:28


+ 119 So shall you do with your cattle and with your sheep: seven days it shall be with its mother, on the eighth day you may give it to Me. Shemot 22:29


+ 115 And you shall be holy people to Me, and flesh torn in the field you shall not eat; you shall throw it to the dogs. Shemot 22:30


+ 118 You shall not accept a false report; do not place your hand with a wicked person to be a false witness. Shemot 23:1


+ 131 You shall not follow the majority for evil, and you shall not respond concerning a lawsuit to follow many to pervert justice. Shemot 23:2


+ 140 Neither shall you glorify a poor man in his lawsuit. Shemot 23:3


+ 122 If you come upon your enemy's bull or his stray donkey, you shall surely return it to him. Shemot 23:4


+ 142 If you see your enemy's donkey lying under its burden would you refrain from helping him? You shall surely help along with him. Shemot 23:5


+ 140 You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor man in his lawsuit. Shemot 23:6


+ 145 Distance yourself from a false matter; and do not kill a truly innocent person or one who has been declared innocent, for I will not vindicate a guilty person. Shemot 23:7


+ 129 You shall not accept a bribe, for a bribe will blind the clear sighted and corrupt words that are right. Shemot 23:8


+ 130 And you shall not oppress a stranger, for you know the feelings of the stranger, since you were strangers in the land of Egypt. Shemot 23:9


+ 104 Six years you may sow your land and gather in its produce. Shemot 23:10


+ 160 But in the seventh year you shall release it and abandon it; the poor of your people shall eat it, and what they leave over, the beasts of the field shall eat. So shall you do to your vineyard and to your olive trees. Shemot 23:11


+ 143 Six days you may do your work, but on the seventh day you shall rest, in order that your ox and your donkey shall rest, and your maidservant's son and the stranger shall be refreshed. Shemot 23:12


+ 145 Concerning all that I have said to you you shall beware, and the name of the gods of others you shall not mention; it shall not be heard through your mouth. Shemot 23:13


+ 124 Three times you shall slaughter sacrifices to Me during the year. Shemot 23:14


+ 157 You shall observe the festival of unleavened bread; for seven days you shall eat unleavened bread as I have commanded you, at the appointed time of the month of springtime, for then you left Egypt, and they shall not appear before Me empty handed. Shemot 23:15


+ 153 And the festival of the harvest, the first fruits of your labors, which you will sow in the field, and the festival of the ingathering at the departure of the year, when you gather in the products of your labors from the field. Shemot 23:16


+ 113 Three times during the year, all your males shall appear before the Master, the Lord. Shemot 23:17


+ 141 You shall not sacrifice the blood of My sacrifice with leaven, and the fat of My festive sacrifice shall not stay overnight until morning. Shemot 23:18


+ 147 The choicest of the first fruits of your soil you shall bring to the house of the Lord, your God. You shall not cook a kid in its mother's milk. Shemot 23:19


+ 144 Behold, I am sending an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared. Shemot 23:20


+ 137 Beware of him and obey him; do not rebel against him, for he will not forgive your transgression, for My Name is within him. Shemot 23:21


+ 132 For if you hearken to his voice and do all that I say, I will hate your enemies and oppress your adversaries. Shemot 23:22


+ 135 For My angel will go before you, and bring you to the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites, and I will destroy them. Shemot 23:23


+ 150 You shall not prostrate yourself before their gods, and you shall not worship them, and you shall not follow their practices, but you shall tear them down and you shall utterly shatter their monuments. Shemot 23:24


+ 152 And you shall worship the Lord, your God, and He will bless your food and your drink, and I will remove illness from your midst. Shemot 23:25


+ 126 There will be no bereaved or barren woman in your land; I will fill the number of your days. Shemot 23:26


+ 126 I will send My fear before you, and I will confuse all the people among whom you shall come, and I will make all your enemies turn their backs to you. Shemot 23:27


+ 134 And I will send the tzir'ah before you, and it will drive out the Hivvites, the Canaanites, and the Hittites from before you. Shemot 23:28


+ 133 I will not drive them away from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts of the field outnumber you. Shemot 23:29


+ 133 I will drive them out from before you little by little, until you have increased and can occupy the land. Shemot 23:30


+ 161 And I will make your boundary from the Red Sea to the sea of the Philistines, and from the desert to the river, for I will deliver the inhabitants of the land into your hands, and you shall drive them out from before you. Shemot 23:31


+ 131 You shall not form a covenant for them or for their gods. Shemot 23:32


+ 139 They shall not dwell in your land, lest they cause you to sin against Me, that you will worship their gods, which will be a snare for you. Shemot 23:33


+ 165 And to Moses He said, Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel, and prostrate yourselves from afar. Shemot 24:1


+ 149 And he sent the youths of the children of Israel, and they offered up burnt offerings, and they slaughtered peace offerings to the Lord, bulls. Shemot 24:5


+ 154 And Moses took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, and he said, "Behold the blood of the covenant, which the Lord has formed with you concerning these words." Shemot 24:8

+ 126 And you shall place it all upon Aaron's palms and upon his sons' palms, and you shall wave them as a waving before the Lord. Shemot 29:24


+ 135 You shall then take them from their hands and make them go up in smoke upon the altar with the burnt offering as a spirit of satisfaction before the Lord; it is a fire offering for the Lord. Shemot 29:25


+ 128 And you shall take the breast of the ram of perfection which is Aaron's, and wave it as a waving before the Lord, and it will become your portion. Shemot 29:26


+ 152 And you shall sanctify the breast of the waving and the thigh of the uplifting, which was waved and which was lifted up, of the ram of perfection, of that which is Aaron's and of that which is his sons. Shemot 29:27

+ 143 If any of the flesh of the perfection offering or of the bread is left over until the next morning, what is left over you shall burn in fire; it shall not be eaten because it is a sacred thing. Shemot 29:34


+ 147 So shall you do to Aaron and his sons, according to all that I have commanded you; for seven days you shall perform their investiture. Shemot 29:35


+ 134 And a bull as a sin offering you shall offer up every day for the atonements, and you shall purify the altar by performing atonement upon it, and you shall anoint it, in order to sanctify it. Shemot 29:36


+ 144 For seven days you shall perform atonement upon the altar and sanctify it. Henceforth, the altar shall be a holy of holies. Whatever touches the altar will be holy. Shemot 29:37


+ 134 And this is what you shall offer upon the altar: lambs in their first year, two a day, continually. Shemot 29:38


+ 109 The one lamb you shall offer up in the morning and the other lamb you shall offer up in the afternoon. Shemot 29:39


+ 163 And the other lamb you shall offer up in the afternoon; you shall offer it up like the meal offering of the morning and its libation, as a spirit of satisfaction, a fire offering to the Lord. Shemot 29:41

+ 139 And when Aaron kindles the lights in the afternoon, he shall make it go up in smoke, continual incense before the Lord for your generations. shemot 30:8


+ 116 You shall offer up on it no alien incense, burnt offering, or meal offering, and you shall pour no libation upon it. Shemot 30:9


+ 140 But Aaron shall make atonement upon its horns once a year; with the blood of the sin offering of the atonements, once a year he shall effect atonement upon it for your generations; it is a holy of holies to the Lord. Shemot 30:10


+ 142 When you take the sum of the children of Israel according to their numbers, let each one give to the Lord an atonement for his soul when they are counted; then there will be no plague among them when they are counted. Shemot 30:12


+ 182 The rich shall give no more, and the poor shall give no less than half a shekel, with which to give the offering to the Lord, to atone for your souls. Shemot 30:15


+ 137 You shall take the silver of the atonements from the children of Israel and use it for the work of the Tent of Meeting; it shall be a remembrance for the children of Israel before the Lord, to atone for your souls. Shemot 30:16


+ 132 You shall make a washstand of copper and its base of copper for washing, and you shall place it between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and you shall put water therein. Shemot 30:18


+ 134 And you, take for yourself spices of the finest sort: of pure myrrh five hundred shekel weights; of fragrant cinnamon half of it two hundred and fifty shekel weights; of fragrant cane two hundred and fifty shekel weights, Shemot 30:23


+ 116 You shall make this into an oil of holy annoinment, a perfumed compound according to the art of a perfumer; it shall be an oil of holy anointment. Shemot 30:25


+ 104 And you shall anoint with it the Tent of Meeting and the Ark of Testimony, Shemot 30:26


+ 96 And you shall sanctify them so that they become a holy of holies; whatever touches them shall become holy. Shemot 30:29


+ 101 And with it you shall anoint Aaron and his sons and sanctify them to serve Me as kohanim. Shemot 30:30


+ 124 And to the children of Israel you shall speak, saying: This shall be oil of holy anointment to Me for your generations. Shemot 30:31


+ 120 It shall not be poured upon human flesh, and according to its formula you shall not make anything like it. It is holy; it shall be holy to you. Shemot 30:32


+ 147 And the Lord said to Moses: Take for yourself aromatics, namely balsam sap, onycha and galbanum, aromatics and pure frankincense; they shall be of equal weight. Shemot 30:34


+ 128 And you shall make it into incense, a compound according to the art of the perfumer, well blended, pure, holy. Shemot 30:35


+ 119 And you shall crush some of it very finely, and you shall set some of it before the testimony in the Tent of Meeting, where I will arrange meetings with you; it shall be to you a holy of holies. Shemot 30:36


+ 115 And the incense that you make, you shall not make for yourselves according to its formula; it shall be holy to you for the Lord. Shemot 30:37


+ 149 And, behold, with him I have placed Oholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, and all the wise hearted into whose hearts I have instilled wisdom, and they shall make everything I have commanded you: Shemot 31:6


+ 106 The anointing oil and the incense for the Holy; in complete accordance with everything I have commanded you they shall do. Shemot 31:11


+ 136 And you, speak to the children of Israel and say: Only keep My Sabbaths! For it is a sign between Me and you for your generations, to know that I, the Lord, make you holy. Shemot 31:13


+ 117 Therefore, keep the Sabbath, for it is a sacred thing for you. Those who desecrate it shall be put to death, for whoever performs work on it, that soul will be cut off from the midst of its people. Shemot 31:14


+ 109 Aaron said to them, Remove the golden earrings that are on the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters and bring them those earrings to me. Shemot 32:2


+ 161 He took them from their hands, fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made it into a molten calf, upon which they said: These are your gods, O Israel, who have brought you up from the land of Egypt! Shemot 32:4


+ 135 And the Lord said to Moses: Go, descend, for your people that you have brought up from the land of Egypt have acted corruptly. Shemot 32:7


+ 156 They have quickly turned away from the path that I have commanded them; they have made themselves a molten calf! And they have prostrated themselves before it, slaughtered sacrifices to it, and said: These are your gods, O Israel, who have brought you up from the land of Egypt. Shemot 32:8


+ 109 Now leave Me alone, and My anger will be kindled against them so that I will annihilate them, and I will make you into a great nation. Shemot 32:10


+ 179 Moses pleaded before the Lord, his God, and said: Why, O Lord, should Your anger be kindled against Your people whom You have brought up from the land of Egypt with great power and with a strong hand? Shemot 32:11


+ 132 Why should the Egyptians say: He brought them out with evil intent to kill them in the mountains and to annihilate them from upon the face of the earth? Retreat from the heat of Your anger and reconsider the evil intended for Your people. Shemot 32:12


+ 155 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your very Self, and to whom You said: I will multiply your seed like the stars of the heavens, and all this land which I said that I would give to your seed, they shall keep it as their possession forever. Shemot 32:13


+ 156 Moses said to Aaron: What did this people do to you that you brought such a grave sin upon them? Shemot 32:21


+ 107 Aaron replied: Let not my lord's anger grow hot! You know the people, that they are disposed toward evil. Shemot 32:22


+ 145 And Moses said: Initiate yourselves today for the Lord for each man with his son and with his brother so that He may bestow a blessing upon you this day. Shemot 32:29


+ 140 It came to pass on the next day that Moses said to the people: You have committed a grave sin. And now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I will obtain atonement for your sin. Shemot 32:30


+ 121 And now, if You forgive their sin But if not, erase me now from Your book, which You have written. Shemot 32:32


+ 130 And now go, lead the people to the place of which I have spoken to you. Behold My angel will go before you. But on the day I make an accounting of sins upon them, I will bring their sin to account against them. Shemot 32:34


+ 152 The Lord spoke to Moses: Go, ascend from here, you and the people you have brought up from the land of Egypt, to the land that I swore to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, saying: I will give it to your descendants. Shemot 33:1


+ 97 I will send an angel before you, and I will drive out the Canaanites, the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Hivvites, and the Jebusites. Shemot 33:2


+ 120 To a land flowing with milk and honey; because I will not go up in your midst since you are a stiff necked people, lest I destroy you on the way. Shemot 33:3


+ 178 And the Lord said to Moses: Say to the children of Israel: 'You are a stiff necked people; if I go up into your midst for one moment, I will destroy you; but now, leave off your finery, and I will know what to do to you. Shemot 33:5


+ 156 Moses said to the Lord: Look, You say to me: Bring this people up! But You have not informed me whom You will send with me. And You said: I have known you by name and you have also found favor in My eyes. Shemot 33:12


+ 132 And now, if I have indeed found favor in Your eyes, pray let me know Your ways, so that I may know You, so that I may find favor in Your eyes; and consider that this nation is Your people. Shemot 33:13


+ 88 So He said, My Presence will go, and I will give you rest. Shemot 33:14


+ 96 And he said to Him, If Your Presence does not go with us, do not take us up from here. Shemot 33:15


+ 130 For how then will it be known that I have found favor in Your eyes, I and Your people? Is it not in that You will go with us? Then I and Your people will be distinguished from every other nation on the face of the earth. Shemot 33:16


+ 128 And the Lord said to Moses: Even this thing that you have spoken, I will do, for you have found favor in My eyes, and I have known you by name. Shemot 33:17


+ 82 And he said: Show me, now, Your glory! Shemot 33:18


+ 110 He said: I will let all My goodness pass before you; I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you, and I will favor when I wish to favor, and I will have compassion when I wish to have compassion. Shemot 33:19


+ 115 And He said, You will not be able to see My face, for man shall not see Me and live. Shemot 33:20


+ 98 And the Lord said: Behold, there is a place with Me, and you shall stand on the rock. Shemot 33:21


+ 123 And it shall be that when My glory passes by, I will place you into the cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with My hand until I have passed by. Shemot 33:22


+ 122 Then I will remove My hand, and you will see My back but My face shall not be seen. Shemot 33:23

+ 102 But you shall demolish their altars, shatter their monuments, and cut down their sacred trees. Shemot 34:13


+ 111 For you shall not prostrate yourself before another god, because the Lord, Whose Name is Jealous One, is a jealous God. Shemot 34:14


+ 121 Lest you form a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and they go astray after their gods, and they offer sacrifices to their gods, and they invite you, and you eat of their slaughtering, Shemot 34:15

+ 93 You shall place the golden altar for incense before the Ark of the Testimony, and you shall place the screen of the entrance to the Mishkan. Shemot 40:5


+ 80 You shall place the altar of the burnt offering in front of the entrance of the Mishkan of the Tent of Meeting. Shemot 40:6


+ 89 You shall place the washstand between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and there you shall put water. Shemot 40:7


+ 84 And you shall set up the courtyard all around, and you shall put up the screen for the gate to the courtyard. Shemot 40:8

+ 135 And you shall anoint them, as you have anointed their father, so that they may serve Me as kohanim. And this shall be so that their anointment shall remain for them an everlasting kehunah throughout their generations. Shemot 40:15


+ 164 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: When a man from among you brings a sacrifice to the Lord; from animals, from cattle or from the flock you shall bring your sacrifice. Vayikra 1:2

+ 139 And whatever is left over from the flesh and the bread, you shall burn in fire. Vayikra 8:32


+ 115 And you shall not leave the entrance of the Tent of Meeting for seven days, until the day of the completion of your investiture days, he will inaugurate you for seven days. Vayikra 8:33


+ 99 As he did on this day, so the Lord has commanded to do, to effect atonement for you. Vayikra 8:34


+ 123 And you shall stay day and night for seven days at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. You shall observe the Lord's command, so that you will not die, for thus I was commanded. Vayikra 8:35


+ 108 And he said to Aaron, "Take for yourself a bull calf as a sin offering, and a ram as a burnt offering, both unblemished, and bring them near before the Lord. Vayikra 9:2


+ 130 And to the children of Israel, you shall speak, saying, Take a he goat as a sin offering; and a calf and a lamb, both in their first year and both unblemished, as a burnt offering, Vayikra 9:3


+ 113 And an ox and a ram as peace offerings, to slaughter before the Lord, and a meal offering mixed with oil, for today the Lord is appearing to you. Vayikra 9:4


+ 112 And Moses said, This is the thing the Lord has commanded; do it, and the glory of the Lord will appear to you. Vayikra 9:6


+ 130 And Moses said to Aaron, Approach the altar and perform your sin offering and your burnt offering, atoning for yourself and for the people, and perform the people's sacrifice, atoning for them, as the Lord has commanded. Vayikra 9:7


+ 146 And Moses summoned Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Aaron's uncle Uzziel, and said to them, Draw near; carry your kinsmen from within the Sanctuary, to the outside of the camp. Vayikra 10:4


+ 150 And Moses said to Aaron and to Eleazar and to Ithamar, his sons, Do not leave your heads unshorn, and do not rend your garments, so that you shall not die, and lest He be angry with the entire community, but your brothers, the entire house of Israel, shall bewail the conflagration that the Lord has burned.

+ 122 And do not go out of the entrance of the Tent of Meeting, lest you die, because the Lord's anointing oil is upon you. And they did according to Moses order. Vayikra 10:7


+ 119 Do not drink wine that will lead to intoxication, neither you nor your sons with you, when you go into the Tent of Meeting, so that you shall not die. This is an eternal statute for your generations, Vayikra 10:9

+ 108 Why did you not eat the sin offering in the holy place? For it is holy of holies, and He has given it to you to gain forgiveness for the sin of the community, to effect their atonement before the Lord! Vayikra 10:17


+ 121 Behold, its blood was not brought into the Sanctuary within, so you should have surely eaten it within holy precincts, as I commanded! vayikra 10:18


+ 126 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: These are the creatures that you may eat among all the animals on earth: Vayikra 11:2


+ 130 Any animal that has a cloven hoof that is completely split into double hooves, and which brings up its cud that one you may eat. Vayikra 11:3


+ 158 But these you shall not eat among those that bring up the cud and those that have a cloven hoof: the camel, because it brings up its cud, but does not have a completely cloven hoof; it is unclean for you. Vayikra 11:4

+ 122 For regarding the soul of all flesh its blood is in its soul, and I said to the children of Israel: You shall not eat the blood of any flesh, for the soul of any flesh is its blood all who eat it shall be cut off. Vayikra 17:14


+ 118 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 18:2


+ 136 Like the practice of the land of Egypt, in which you dwelled, you shall not do, and like the practice of the land of Canaan, to which I am bringing you, you shall not do, and you shall not follow their statutes. Vayikra 18:3


+ 119 You shall fulfill My ordinances and observe My statutes, to follow them. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 18:4


+ 112 You shall observe My statutes and My ordinances, which a man shall do and live by them. I am the Lord. Vayikra 18:5

+ 109 You shall not lie down with a male, as with a woman: this is an abomination. Vayikra 18:22


+ 121 And with no animal shall you cohabit, to become defiled by it. And a woman shall not stand in front of an animal to cohabit with it; this is depravity. Vayikra 18:23


+ 138 You shall not defile yourselves by any of these things, for the nations, whom I am sending away from before you, have defiled themselves with all these things. Vayikra 18:24


+ 147 But as for you, you shall observe My statutes and My ordinances, and you shall not do like any of these abominations neither the native, nor the stranger who sojourns among you. Vayikra 18:26


+ 106 For the people of the land who preceded you, did all of these abominations, and the land became defiled. Vayikra 18:27


+ 108 And let the land not vomit you out for having defiled it, as it vomited out the nation that preceded you. Vayikra 18:28

+ 123 You shall not eat bread or flour made from parched grain or fresh grain, until this very day, until you bring your God's sacrifice. This is an eternal statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. Vayikra 23:14


+ 114 And you shall count for yourselves, from the morrow of the rest day from the day you bring the omer as a wave offering seven weeks; they shall be complete. Vayikra 23:15

+ 132 When you reap the harvest of your Land, you shall not completely remove the corner of your field during your harvesting, and you shall not gather up the gleanings of your harvest. Rather, you shall leave these for the poor person and for the stranger. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 23:22


+ 156 Speak to the children of Israel, saying: In the seventh month, on the first of the month, it shall be a Sabbath for you, a remembrance of Israel through the shofar blast a holy occasion. Vayikra 23:24

+ 123 These are God's appointed holy days that you shall designate them as holy occasions, on which to offer up a fire offering to the Lord burnt offering and meal offering, sacrifice and libations, the requirement of each day on its day; Vayikra 23:37


+ 131 Apart from the Lord's Sabbaths, and apart from your gifts, and apart from all your vows, and apart from all your donations that you give to the Lord. Vayikra 23:38


+ 132 But on the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when you gather in the produce of the land, you shall celebrate the festival of the Lord for a seven day period; the first day shall be a rest day, and the eighth day shall be a rest day. Vayikra 23:39


+ 131 And you shall take for yourselves on the first day, the fruit of the hadar tree, date palm fronds, a branch of a braided tree, and willows of the brook, and you shall rejoice before the Lord your God for a seven day period. Vayikra 23:40

+ 100 And you place them in two stacks, six in each stack, upon the pure table, before the Lord. Vayikra 24:6


+ 194 And you shall place pure frankincense alongside each stack, and it shall be a reminder for the bread, a fire offering to the Lord. Vayikra 24:7


+ 103 And to the children of Israel, you shall speak, saying: Any man who blasphemes his God shall bear his sin. Vayikra 24:15


+ 113 One law shall be exacted for you, convert and resident alike, for I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 24:22


+ 121 Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them: When you come to the land that I am giving you, the land shall rest a Sabbath to the Lord. Vayikra 25:2


+ 133 You may sow your field for six years, and for six years you may prune your vineyard, and gather in its produce, Vayikra 25:3


+ 117 But in the seventh year, the land shall have a complete rest a Sabbath to the Lord; you shall not sow your field, nor shall you prune your vineyard. Vayikra 25:4


+ 133 You shall not reap the aftergrowth of your harvest, and you shall not pick the grapes you had set aside for yourself, for it shall be a year of rest for the land. Vayikra 25:5


+ 130 And the produce of the Sabbath of the land shall be yours to eat for you, for your male and female slaves, and for your hired worker and resident who live with you, Vayikra 25:6


+ 123 And all of its produce may be eaten also by your domestic animals and by the beasts that are in your land. Vayikra 25:7


+ 118 And you shall count for yourself seven sabbatical years, seven years seven times. And the days of these seven sabbatical years shall amount to forty nine years for you. Vayikra 25:8


+ 128 You shall proclaim with the shofar blasts, in the seventh month, on the tenth of the month; on the Day of Atonement, you shall sound the shofar throughout your land. Vayikra 25:9


+ 120 And you shall sanctify the fiftieth year, and proclaim freedom for slaves throughout the land for all who live on it. It shall be a Jubilee for you, and you shall return, each man to his property,_ and you shall return, each man to his family. Vayikra 25:10


+ 137 This fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee for you you shall not sow, nor shall you reap its aftergrowth or pick [its grapes] that you had set aside for yourself. Vayikra 25:11


+ 120 For it is Jubilee. It shall be holy for you; you shall eat its produce from the field. Vayikra 25:12


+ 122 During this Jubilee year, you shall return, each man to his property. Vayikra 25:13


+ 124 And when you make a sale to your fellow Jew or make a purchase from the hand of your fellow Jew, you shall not wrong one another. Vayikra 25:14


+ 126 According to the number of years after the Jubilee, you shall purchase from your fellow Jew; according to the number of years of crops, he shall sell to you. Vayikra 25:15


+ 126 The more the remaining years, you shall increase its purchase price, and the fewer the remaining years, you shall decrease its purchase price, because he is selling you a number of crops. Vayikra 25:16


+ 110 And you shall not wrong, one man his fellow Jew, and you shall fear your God, for I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 25:17


+ 143 You shall perform My statutes, keep My ordinances and perform them then you will live on the land securely. Vayikra 25:18


+ 110 And the land will then yield its fruit and you will eat to satiety, and live upon it securely. Vayikra 25:19


+ 119 And if you should say, "What will we eat in the seventh year? We will not sow, and we will not gather in our produce!" Vayikra 25:20


+ 128 Know then, that I will command My blessing for you in the sixth year, and it will yield produce for three years. Vayikra 25:21


+ 189 And you will sow in the eighth year, while still eating from the old crops until the ninth year; until the arrival of its crop, you will eat the old crop. Vayikra 25:22


+ 127 The land shall not be sold permanently, for the land belongs to Me, for you are strangers and temporary residents with Me. Vayikra 25:23


+ 107 Therefore, throughout the land of your possession, you shall give redemption for the land. Vayikra 25:24


+ 125 If your brother becomes destitute and sells some of his inherited property, his redeemer who is related to him shall come forth and redeem his brother's sale. Vayikra 25:25


+ 117 If your brother becomes destitute and his hand falters beside you, you shall support him whether a convert or a resident, so that he can live with you. Vayikra 25:35


+ 104 You shall not take from him interest or increase, and you shall fear your God, and let your brother live with you. Vayikra 25:36


+ 111 You shall not give him your money with interest, nor shall you give your food with increase. Vayikra 25:37


+ 95 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, to be a God to you. Vayikra 25:38


+ 95 And if your brother becomes destitute with you, and is sold to you, do not work him with slave labor. Vayikra 25:39


+ 99 As an employee or a hired resident, he shall be with you; until the Jubilee year he shall work with you. Vayikra 25:40


+ 99 Then, he shall leave you he, and his children with him, and he shall return to his family and resume the status of his fathers. Vayikra 25:41


+ 92 You shall not work him with rigor, and you shall fear your God. Vayikra 25:43


+ 102 Your male slave or female slave whom you may have from the nations that are around you, from them you may acquire a male slave or a female slave. Vayikra 25:44


+ 116 And also from the children of the residents that live among you, from them you may acquire slaves and from their family that is with you whom they begot in your land, and they shall become your inheritance. Vayikra 25:45


+ 118 You shall hold onto them as an inheritance for your children after you, as acquired property, and may thus have them serve you forever. But as for your brethren, the children of Israel, a man shall not work his brother with rigor. Vayikra 25:46


+ 108 If a resident non Jew gains wealth with you, and your brother becomes destitute with him and is sold to a resident non Jew among you or to an idol of the family of a non Jew. Vayikra 25:47


+ 106 He shall be with him as an employee hired year by year; he shall not enslave him with rigor in your sight. Vayikra 25:53


+ 114 For the children of Israel are servants to Me; they are My servants, whom I took out of the land of Egypt. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 25:55


+ 128 You shall not make idols for yourselves, nor shall you set up a statue or a monument for yourselves. And in your land you shall not place a pavement stone on which to prostrate yourselves, for I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 26:1


+ 101 You shall keep My Sabbaths and fear My Sanctuary. I am the Lord. Vayikra 26:2


+ 107 If you follow My statutes and observe My commandments and perform them, Vayikra 26:3


+ 103 I will give your rains in their time, the Land will yield its produce, and the tree of the field will give forth its fruit. Vayikra 26:4


+ 115 Your threshing will last until the vintage, and the vintage will last until the sowing; you will eat your food to satiety, and you will live in security in your land. Vayikra 26:5


+ 123 And I will grant peace in the Land, and you will lie down with no one to frighten you; I will remove wild beasts from the Land, and no army will pass through your land; Vayikra 26:6


+ 110 You will pursue your enemies, and they will fall by the sword before you; Vayikra 26:7


+ 94 Five of you will pursue a hundred, and a hundred of you will pursue ten thousand, and your enemies will fall by the sword before you. Vayikra 26:8


+ 100 I will turn towards you, and I will make you fruitful and increase you, and I will set up My covenant with you. Vayikra 26:9


+ 97 You will eat very old produce, and you will clear out the old from before the new. Vayikra 26:10


+ 96 And I will place My dwelling in your midst, and My Spirit will not reject you; Vayikra 26:11


+ 95 I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be My people. Vayikra 26:12


+ 106 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt from being slaves to them; and I broke the pegs of your yoke and led you upright. Vayikra 26:13


+ 98 But if you do not listen to Me and do not perform all these commandments, Vayikra 26:14


+ 126 And if you despise My statutes and reject My ordinances, not performing any of My commandments, thereby breaking My covenant Vayikra 26:15


+ 117 Then I too, will do the same to you; I will order upon you shock, consumption, fever, and diseases that cause hopeless longing and depression. You will sow your seed in vain, and your enemies will eat it. Vayikra 26:16


+ 100 I will set My attention against you, and you will be smitten before your enemies. Your enemies will rule over you; you will flee, but no one will be pursuing you. Vayikra 26:17


+ 107 And if, during these, you will not listen to Me, I will add another seven punishments for your sins: Vayikra 26:18


+ 99 I will break the pride of your strength and make your skies like iron and your land like copper. Vayikra 26:19


+ 118 Your strength will be expended in vain; your land will not yield its produce, neither will the tree of the earth give forth its fruit. Vayikra 26:20


+ 110 And if you treat Me as happenstance, and you do not wish to listen to Me, I will add seven punishments corresponding to your sins: Vayikra 26:21


+ 118 I will incite the wild beasts of the field against you, and they will bereave you, utterly destroy your livestock and diminish you, and your roads will become desolate. Vayikra 26:22


+ 99 And if, through these, you will still not be chastised to return to Me, and if you continue to treat Me happenstance, Vayikra 26:23


+ 100 Then I too, will treat you as happenstance. I will again add seven punishments for your sins: Vayikra 26:24


+ 128 I will bring upon you an army that avenges the avenging of a covenant, and you will gather into your cities. I will incite the plague in your midst, and you will be delivered into the enemy's hands, Vayikra 26:25


+ 108 When I break for you the staff of bread, and ten women will bake your bread in one oven, and they will bring back your bread by weight, and you will eat, yet not be satisfied. Vayikra 26:26


+ 148 And if, despite this, you still do not listen to Me, still treating Me as happenstance, Vayikra 26:27


+ 127 I will treat you with a fury of happenstance, adding again seven chastisements for your sins: Vayikra 26:28


+ 105 You will eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters you will eat. Vayikra 26:29


+ 119 I will demolish your edifices and cut down your sun idols; I will make your corpses fall upon the corpses of your idols, and My Spirit will reject you. Vayikra 26:30


+ 114 I will lay your cities waste and make your holy places desolate, and I will not partake of your pleasant fragrances. Vayikra 26:31


+ 92 I will make the Land desolate, so that it will become desolate also of your enemies who live in it. Vayikra 26:32


+ 118 And I will scatter you among the nations, and I will unsheathe the sword after you. Your land will be desolate, and your cities will be laid waste. Vayikra 26:33


+ 140 Then, the land will be appeased regarding its sabbaticals. During all the days that it remains desolate while you are in the land of your enemies, the Land will rest and thus appease its sabbaticals. Vayikra 26:34


+ 115 It will rest during all the days that it remains desolate, whatever it had not rested on your sabbaticals, when you lived upon it. Vayikra 26:35


+ 133 And those of you who survive I will bring fear in their hearts in the lands of their enemies, and the sound of a rustling leaf will pursue them; they will flee as one flees the sword, and they will fall, but there will be no pursuer. Vayikra 26:36


+ 132 Each man will stumble over his brother, fleeing as if from the sword, but without a pursuer. You will not be able to stand up against your enemies. Vayikra 26:37


+ 95 You will become lost among the nations, and the land of your enemies will consume you. Vayikra 26:38


+ 118 And because of their iniquity, those of you who survive will rot away in the lands of your enemies; moreover, they will rot away because the iniquities of their fathers are still within them. Vayikra 26:39

+ 115 Then Moses said to Hobab the son of Reuel the Midianite, Moses's father-in-law, We are traveling to the place about which the Lord said, I will give it to you. Come with us and we will be good to you, for the Lord has spoken of good fortune for Israel. Bamidbar 10:29


+ 108 He said, Please don't leave us, for because you are familiar with our encampments in the desert and you will be our guide. Bamidbar 10:31


+ 82 And if you go with us, then we will bestow on you the good which God grants us. Bamidbar 10:32


+ 115 So it was, whenever the ark set out, Moses would say, Arise, O Lord, may Your enemies be scattered and may those who hate You flee from You. Bamidbar 10:35


+ 117 Moses said to the Lord, "Why have You treated Your servant so badly? Why have I not found favor in Your eyes that You place the burden of this entire people upon me? Bamidbar 11:11


+ 103 Did I conceive this entire people? Did I give birth to them, that You say to me, Carry them in your bosom as the nurse carries the suckling, to the Land You promised their forefathers? Bamidbar 11:12


+ 117 If this is the way You treat me, please kill me if I have found favor in Your eyes, so that I not see my misfortune. Bamidbar 11:15


+ 116 Then the Lord said to Moses, Assemble for Me seventy men of the elders of Israel, whom you know to be the people's elders and officers, and you shall take them to the Tent of Meeting, and they shall stand there with You. Bamidbar 11:16


+ 96 I will come down and speak with you there, and I will increase the spirit that is upon you and bestow it upon them. Then they will bear the burden of the people with you so that you need not bear it alone. Bamidbar 11:17


+ 107 And to the people, you shall say, Prepare yourselves for tomorrow and you shall eat meat, because you have cried in the ears of the Lord saying, Who will feed us meat, for we had it better in Egypt. Therefore, the Lord will give you meat, and you shall eat. Bamidbar 11:18


+ 96 You shall eat it not one day, not two days, not five days, not ten days, and not twenty days. Bamidbar 11:19


+ 134 But even for a full month until it comes out your nose and nauseates you. Because you have despised the Lord Who is among you, and you cried before Him, saying, Why did we ever leave Egypt? Bamidbar 11:20


+ 103 Moses said, Six hundred thousand people on foot are the people in whose midst I am, and You say, I will give them meat, and they will eat it for a full month? Bamidbar 11:21


+ 111 Then the Lord said to Moses, Is My power limited? Now you will see if My word comes true for you or not! Bamidbar 11:23


+ 110 Joshua the son of Nun, Moses servant from his youth, answered and said, Moses, my master, imprison them! Bamidbar 11:28


+ 108 Moses said to him, Are you zealous for my sake? If only all the Lord's people were prophets, that the Lord would bestow His spirit upon them! Bamidbar 11:29


+ 87 The Lord suddenly said to Moses, Aaron and Miriam, Go out, all three of you, to the Tent of Meeting! And all three went out. Bamidbar 12:4


+ 103 He said, "Please listen to My words. If there be prophets among you, I the Lord will make Myself known to him in a vision; I will speak to him in a dream. Bamidbar 12:6


+ 109 With him I speak mouth to mouth; in a vision and not in riddles, and he beholds the image of the Lord. So why were you not afraid to speak against My servant Moses ? Bamidbar 12:8


+ 101 Moses cried out to the Lord, saying, I beseech you, God, please heal her. Bamidbar 12:14


+ 104 Send out for yourself men who will scout the Land of Canaan, which I am giving to the children of Israel. You shall send one man each for his father's tribe; each one shall be a chieftain in their midst. Bamidbar 13:2


+ 110 You shall see what kind of land it is, and the people who inhabit it; are they strong or weak? Are there few or many? Bamidbar 13:18


+ 108 What is the soil like is it fat or lean? Are there any trees in it or not? You shall be courageous and take from the fruit of the land." It was the season when the first grapes begin to ripen. Bamidbar 13:20


+ 95 They told him and said, "We came to the land to which you sent us, and it is flowing with milk and honey, and this is its fruit. Bamidbar 13:27


+ 97 But you shall not rebel against the Lord, and you will not fear the people of that land for they are as our bread. Their protection is removed from them, and the Lord is with us; do not fear them. Bamidbar 14:9


+ 90 I will strike them with a plague and annihilate them; then I will make you into a nation, greater and stronger than they. Bamidbar 14:12


+ 105 Moses said to the Lord, But the Egyptians will hear that You have brought this nation out from its midst with great power. Bamidbar 14:13


+ 111 They will say about the inhabitants of this land, who have heard that You, O Lord, are in the midst of this people; that You, the Lord, appear to them eye to eye and that Your cloud rests over them. And You go before them with a pillar of cloud by day and with a pillar of fire by night, Bamidbar 14:14


+ 87 And if You kill this nation like one man, the nations who have heard of Your reputation will say as follows: Bamidbar 14:15


+ 96 Now, please, let the strength of the Lord be increased, as You spoke, saying. Bamidbar 14:17


+ 108 Please forgive the iniquity of this nation in accordance with your abounding kindness, as You have borne this people from Egypt until now." Bamidbar 14:19


+ 101 And the Lord said, I have forgiven them in accordance with your word. Bamidbar 14:21


+ 104 Say to them, As I live, says the Lord, if not as you have spoken in My ears, so will I do to you. Bamidbar 13:28


+ 106 In this desert, your corpses shall fall; your entire number, all those from the age of twenty and up, who were counted, because you complained against Me. Bamidbar 13:29


+ 99 You shall not come into the Land concerning which I raised My hand that you would settle in it, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun. Bamidbar 13:30


+ 91 As for your infants, of whom you said that they will be as spoils, I will bring them there, and they will come to know the Land which You despised. Bamidbar 13:31


+ 83 But as for you, your corpses shall fall in this desert. Bamidbar 13:32


+ 107 Your children shall wander in the desert for forty years and bear your defection until the last of your corpses has fallen in the desert. Bamidbar 13:33


+ 116 According to the number of days which you toured the Land forty days, a day for each year, you will thus bear your iniquities for forty years; thus you will come to know My alienation. Bamidbar 13:34


+ 102 Moses said, Why do you transgress the word of the Lord? It will not succeed. Bamidbar 14:41


+ 87 Do not go up, for the Lord is not among you, so that you will not be beaten by your enemies. Bamidbar 14:42


+ 103 For the Amalekites and the Canaanites are there before you, and you will fall by the sword. For you have turned away from the Lord, and the Lord will not be with you. Bamidbar 14:43


+ 88 Speak to the children of Israel and say to them: When you arrive in the Land of your dwelling place, which I am giving you, Bamidbar 15:2


+ 121 And you make a fire offering to the Lord, a burnt offering or a sacrifice namely a peace offering, for an expressed vow or for a voluntary offering or on your festivals, to provide a pleasing fragrance for the Lord, from the cattle or from the sheep. Bamidbar 15:3


+ 90 And a quarter of a hin of wine for a libation, you shall prepare with the burnt offering or for the sacrifice, for each lamb. Bamidbar 15:5


+ 92 Or for a ram, you shall present a meal offering containing two tenths fine flour mixed with a third of a hin of oil. Bamidbar 15:6


+ 87 And a third of a hin of wine for a libation; you shall offer up, a pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 15:7


+ 86 If you prepare a young bull as a burnt offering or sacrifice by expressing a vow, or for a peace offering for the Lord, Bamidbar 15:8


+ 85 With the young bull he shall offer up a meal offering consisting of three tenths fine flour mixed with half a hin of oil. Bamidbar 15:9


+ 81 And you shall offer half a hin of wine for a libation, a fire offering of pleasing fragrance to the Lord. Bamidbar 15:10


+ 77 So shall it be done for each ox or ram, or for a young sheep or young goat. Bamidbar 15:11


+ 86 In accordance with the number you offer up, so shall you present for each one, according to their numbers. Bamidbar 15:12


+ 89 If a proselyte resides with you, or those among you in future generations, and he offers up a fire offering of pleasing fragrance to the Lord, as you make it, so shall he make it. Bamidbar 15:15


+ 87 One rule applies to the assembly, for yourselves and for the proselyte who resides with you; one rule applies throughout your generations just as it is for you, so it is for the proselyte, before the Lord. Bamidbar 15:16


+ 84 There shall be one law and one ordinance for you and the proselyte who resides with you. Bamidbar 15:16


+ 82 Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them, When you arrive in the Land to which I am bringing you, Bamidbar 15:18


+ 89 And you eat from the bread of the Land, you shall set aside a gift for the Lord. Bamidbar 15:19


+ 78 The first portion of your dough, you shall separate a loaf for a gift; as in the case of the gift of the threshing floor, so shall you separate it. Bamidbar 15:20


+ 85 From the first portion of your dough you shall give a gift to the Lord in all your generations. Bamidbar 15:21


+ 91 And if you should err and not fulfill all these commandments, which the Lord spoke to Moses. Bamidbar 15:22


+ 68 All that the Lord commanded you through Moses, from the day on which the Lord commanded and from then on, for all generations. Bamidbar 15:23


+ 94 If because of the eyes of the congregation it was committed inadvertently, the entire congregation shall prepare a young bull as a burnt offering for a pleasing fragrance for the Lord, with its prescribed meal offering and libation, and one young he goat for a sin offering. Bamidbar 15:24


+ 88 Speak to the children of Israel and you shall say to them that they shall make for themselves fringes on the corners of their garments, throughout their generations, and they shall affix a thread of sky blue wool on the fringe of each corner. Bamidbar 15:38


+ 88 This shall be fringes for you, and when you see it, you will remember all the commandments of the Lord to perform them, and you shall not wander after your hearts and after your eyes after which you are going astray. Bamidbar 15:39


+ 77 So that you shall remember and perform all My commandments and you shall be holy to your God. Bamidbar 15:40


+ 71 I am the Lord, your God, Who took you out of the land of Egypt to be your God; I am the Lord, your God. Bamidbar 15:41


+ 92 They assembled against Moses and Aaron, and said to them, "You take too much upon yourselves, for the entire congregation are all holy, and the Lord is in their midst. So why do you raise yourselves above the Lord's assembly?" Bamidbar 16:3


+ 75 Do this, Korah and his company: Take for yourselves censers. Bamidbar 16:6


+ 94 Place fire into them and put incense upon them before the Lord tomorrow, and the man whom the Lord chooses he is the holy one; you have taken too much upon yourselves, sons of Levi." Bamidbar 16:7


+ 88 Is it not enough that the God of Israel has distinguished you from the congregation of Israel to draw you near to Him, to perform the service in the Mishkan of the Lord and to stand before the congregation to minister to them? Bamidbar 16:9


+ 89 He drew you near, and all your brothers, the sons of Levi with you, and now you seek the kehunah as well? Bamidbar 16:10


+ 103 Therefore, you and your entire company who are assembled are against the Lord, for what is Aaron that you should complain against him?" Bamidbar 16:11


+ 93 Is it not enough that you have brought us out of a land flowing with milk and honey to kill us in the desert, that you should also exercise authority over us? Bamidbar 16:13


+ 93 You have not even brought us to a land flowing with milk and honey, nor have you given us an inheritance of fields and vineyards. Even if you gouge out the eyes of those men, we will not go up." Bamidbar 16:14


+ 73 Moses said to Korah, You and your entire congregation should be before the Lord you, they, and Aaron tomorrow. Bamidbar 16:16


+ 75 Let each man take his censer and place incense upon it, and let each man present his censer before the Lord; there will thus be two hundred and fifty censers, and let you and Aaron each take his censer. Bamidbar 16:17


+ 85 Dissociate yourselves from this congregation, and I will consume them in an instant. Bamidbar 16:22


+ 97 They fell on their faces and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, if one man sins, shall You be angry with the whole congregation? Bamidbar 16:22


+ 92 He spoke to the congregation saying, Please get away from the tents of these wicked men, and do not touch anything of theirs, lest you perish because of all their sins. Bamidbar 16:26


+ 86 Moses said, With this you shall know that the Lord sent me to do all these deeds, for I did not devise them myself. Bamidbar 16:28


+ 102 But if the Lord creates a creation, and the earth opens its mouth and swallows them and all that is theirs, and they descend alive into the grave, you will know that these men have provoked the Lord. Bamidbar 16:30


+ 91 The following day, the entire congregation of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron saying, "You have killed the people of the Lord." Bamidbar 17:6


+ 81 You shall place the staffs in the Tent of Meeting before the Ark of the Testimony where I commune with you. Bamidbar 17:19


+ 86 The staff of the man whom I will choose will blossom, and I will calm down turning away from Myself the complaints of the children of Israel which they are complaining against you. Bamidbar 17:20


+ 89 The Lord said to Aaron: You, your sons and your father's house shall bear the iniquity associated with the Sanctuary, and you and your sons with you shall bear the iniquity associated with your kehunah. Bamidbar 18:1


+ 68 Also your brethren, the tribe of Levi, your father's tribe, draw close to you, and they shall join you and minister to you, and you and your sons with you, before the Tent of Testimony. Bamidbar 18:2


+ 84 They shall keep your charge and the charge of the Tent, and they shall not approach the holy vessels or the altar, so that neither they nor you will die. Bamidbar 18:3


+ 86 They shall join you, and they shall keep the charge of the Tent of Meeting for all the service of the Tent, and no outsider shall come near you. Bamidbar 18:4


+ 106 I have therefore taken your brethren, the Levites, from among the children of Israel; they are given to you as a gift, and given over to the Lord to perform the service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 18:6


+ 100 And you and your sons shall keep your kehunah in all matters concerning the altar, and concerning what is within the dividing screen, and you shall serve; the service as a gift I have given your kehunah, and any outsider non-kohen who approaches shall die. Bamidbar 18:7


+ 116 The Lord told Aaron: Behold I have given you the charge of My gift offerings. I have thus given you all the holy things of the children of Israel for distinction, and as an eternal portion for your sons. Bamidbar 18:8


+ 79 These shall be yours from the holiest of holies, from the fire: all their offerings, their meal-offerings, their sin-offerings, their guilt-offerings, and what they return to Me; they shall be holy of holies to you and to your sons. Bamidbar 18:9


+ 86 You shall eat it in the holiest of places. Any male may eat of it; it shall be holy to you. Bamidbar 18:10


+ 102 This shall be yours what is set aside for their gifts from all the wavings of the children of Israel; I have given them to you, and to your sons and to your daughters with you, as an eternal portion. Any ritually clean member of your household may eat it. Bamidbar 18:11


+ 80 The choice of the oil and the choice of the wine and grain, the first of which they give to the Lord, to you I have given them. Bamidbar 18:12


+ 85 The first fruit of all that grows in their land, which they shall bring to the Lord shall be yours; any ritually clean member of your household may eat of it. Bamidbar 18:13


+ 90 Any devoted thing in Israel shall be yours. Bamidbar 18:14


+ 104 Every first issue of the womb of any creature, which they present to the Lord, whether of man or beast, shall be yours. However, you shall redeem the firstborn of man, and the firstborn of unclean animals you shall redeem. Bamidbar 18:15


+ 77 Their flesh shall be yours; like the breast of the waving and the right thigh, it shall be yours. Bamidbar 18:18


+ 94 All the gifts of the holy offerings which are set aside by the children of Israel for the Lord I have given to you, and to your sons and daughters with you, as an eternal portion; it is like an eternal covenant of salt before the Lord, for you and your descendants with you. Bamidbar 18:19


+ 80 The Lord said to Aaron, You shall not inherit in their land, and you shall have no portion among them. I am your inheritance and portion among the children of Israel. Bamidbar 18:20


+ 99 The Levites shall perform the service of the Tent of Meeting, and they will bear their iniquity; it is an eternal statute for your generations, but among the children of Israel they shall have no inheritance. Bamidbar 18:23


+ 110 Speak to the Levites and tell them, "When you take the tithe from the children of Israel which I have given you from them as your inheritance, you shall set aside from it a gift for the Lord, a tithe of the tithe. Bamidbar 18:26


+ 90 Your gift shall be considered for you as grain from the threshing-floor and as the produce of the vat. Bamidbar 18:27


+ 102 So shall you too set aside a gift for the Lord from all the tithes you take from the children of Israel, and you shall give thereof the Lord's gift to Aaron the priest. Bamidbar 18:28


+ 99 From all your gifts, you shall set aside every gift of the Lord, from its choicest portion, that part of it which is to be consecrated. Bamidbar 18:29


+ 112 Say to them, When you separate its choicest part, it shall be considered for the Levites as produce from the threshing-floor and as produce from the vat. Bamidbar 18:30


+ 99 You and your household may eat it anywhere, for it is your wage for you in exchange for your service in the Tent of Meeting. Bamidbar 18:31


+ 99 After you separate the choicest part from it, you shall not bear any sin on account of it, but you shall not profane the sacred offerings of the children of Israel, so that you shall not die. Bamidbar 18:32


+ 109 This is the statute of the Torah which the Lord commanded, saying, Speak to the children of Israel and have them take for you a perfectly red unblemished cow, upon which no yoke was laid. Bamidbar 19:2


+ 79 And you shall give it to Eleazar the kohen, and he shall take it outside the camp and slaughter it in his presence. Bamidbar 19:3


+ 82 Why have you brought the congregation of the Lord to this desert so that we and our livestock should die there? Bamidbar 20:4


+ 96 Why have you taken us out of Egypt to bring us to this evil place; it is not a place for seeds, or for fig trees, grapevines, or pomegranate trees, and there is no water to drink. Bamidbar 20:5


+ 94 "Take the staff and assemble the congregation, you and your brother Aaron, and speak to the rock in their presence so that it will give forth its water. You shall bring forth water for them from the rock and give the congregation and their livestock to drink." Bamidbar 20:8


+ 98 Moses and Aaron assembled the congregation in front of the rock, and he said to them, "Now listen, you rebels, can we draw water for you from this rock?" Bamidbar 20:10


+ 105 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, "Since you did not have faith in Me to sanctify Me in the eyes of the children of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly to the Land which I have given them. Bamidbar 20:12


+ 97 Moses sent messengers from Kadesh to the king of Edom: "So says your brother, Israel, 'You know of all the hardship that has befallen us. Bamidbar 20:14


+ 72 We cried out to the Lord and He heard our voice. He sent an angel, and he took us out of Egypt, and now we are in Kadesh, a city on the edge of your border. Bamidbar 20:16


+ 95 Please let us pass through your land; we will not pass through fields or vineyards, nor will we drink well water. We will walk along the king's road, and we will turn neither to the right nor to the left until we have passed through your territory. Bamidbar 20:17


+ 82 Edom replied to him, "You shall not pass through me, lest I go out towards you with the sword!" Bamidbar 20:18


+ 113 The children of Israel said to him, "We will keep to the highway, and if we drink your water, either I or my cattle, we will pay its price. It is really nothing; I will pass through on foot." Bamidbar 20:19


+ 79 But he said, "You shall not pass through!" and Edom came out toward them with a vast force and with a strong hand. Bamidbar 20:20


+ 116 Aaron shall be gathered to his people, for he shall not come to the Land which I have given to the children of Israel, because you defied My word at the waters of dispute Mei Meribah. Bamidbar 20:24


+ 79 Israel made a vow to the Lord, and said, "If You deliver this people into my hand, I shall consecrate their cities." Bamidbar 21:2


+ 92 The people spoke against God and against Moses, "Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in this desert, for there is no bread and no water, and we are disgusted with this rotten bread." Bamidbar 21:5


+ 97 The people came to Moses and said, "We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord that He remove the snakes from us." So Moses prayed on behalf of the people. Bamidbar 21:7


+ 83 The Lord said to Moses, Make yourself a serpent and put it on a pole, and let whoever is bitten look at it and live. Bamidbar 21:8


+ 91 "Let me pass through your land. We will not turn into fields or vineyards, nor drink well water. We shall walk along the king's road, until we have passed through your territory." Bamidbar 21:22


+ 89 Woe is to you, Moab; you are lost, people of Chemosh. His sons he has given over as refugees and his daughters into captivity, to Sihon, king of the Amorites. Bamidbar 21:29


+ 101 The Lord said to Moses, "Do not fear him, for I have delivered him, his people, and his land into your hand. You shall do to him as you did to Sihon the king of the Amorites who dwells in Heshbon. Bamidbar 21:34


+ 98 So now, please come and curse this people for me, for they are too powerful for me. Perhaps I will be able to wage war against them and drive them out of the land, for I know that whomever you bless is blessed and whomever you curse is cursed. Bamidbar 22:6


+ 98 He said to them, Lodge here for the night, and I will give you an answer when the Lord speaks to me. So the Moabite nobles stayed with Balaam. Bamidbar 22:8


+ 85 God came to Balaam and said, Who are these men with you? Bamidbar 22:9


+ 80 God said to Balaam, You shall not go with them! You shall not curse the people because they are blessed. Bamidbar 22:12


+ 91 When Balaam arose in the morning, he said to Balak's nobles, Return to your country, for the Lord has refused to let me go with you. Bamidbar 22:13


+ 92 For I will honor you greatly and do whatever you tell me to do. So please come and curse this people for me. Bamidbar 22:17


+ 97 Now, you too, please remain here overnight, and I will know what the Lord will continue to speak with me. Bamidbar 22:19


+ 84 God came to Balaam at night and said to him, If these men have come to call for you, arise and go with them, but the word I speak to you-that you shall do. Bamidbar 22:20


+ 84 The Lord opened the mouth of the she-donkey, and she said to Balaam, "What have I done to you that you have struck me these three times?" Bamidbar 22:28


+ 91 Balaam said to the she-donkey, "For you have humiliated me; if I had a sword in my hand, I would kill you right now." Bamidbar 22:29


+ 107 The she-donkey said to Balaam, "Am I not your she-donkey on which you have ridden since you first started until now? Have I been accustomed to do this to you?" He said, "No." Bamidbar 22:30


+ 100 The angel of the Lord said to him, Why have you beaten your she-donkey these three times? Behold, I have came out to thwart you, for the one embarking on the journey has hastened against me. Bamidbar 22:32


+ 87 When the she-donkey saw me, it turned aside these three times. Had she not turned aside before me, now also I would also have killed you and spared her. Bamidbar 22:33


+ 92 Balaam said to the angel of the Lord, I have sinned, for I did not know that you were standing on the road before me. Now, if it displeases you, I will return. Bamidbar 22:34


+ 91 The angel of the Lord said to Balaam, Go with these men, but the word I will speak to you-that you shall speak. So Balaam went with Balak's dignitaries. Bamidbar 22:35


+ 101 Balak said to Balaam, "Did I not send to you to call for you? Why did you not come to me? Am I indeed incapable of honoring you?" Bamidbar 22:37


+ 98 Balaam said to Balak, "Behold I have come to you, do I have any power to say anything? The word God puts into my mouth-that I will speak." Bamidbar 22:38


+ 83 Balaam said to Balak, "Stand beside your burnt offering, and I will go. Perhaps the Lord will happen to appear to me, and He will show me something that I can tell you," and he went alone. Bamidbar 23:3


+ 91 Balak said to Balaam, What have you done to me? I took you to curse my enemies, but you have blessed them! Bamidbar 23:11


+ 102 Balak said to him, Come with me to another place from where you will see them; however, you will see only a part of them, not all of them and curse them for me from there. Bamidbar 23:13


+ 89 He said to Balak, Stand here next to your burnt offering and I will be chanced on here. Bamidbar 23:15


+ 99 The Lord chanced upon Balaam and placed something into his mouth. He said, Return to Balak and so you shall speak. Bamidbar 23:16


+ 91 Balak said to Balaam, "You shall neither curse them nor shall you bless them." Bamidbar 23:25


+ 99 Balaam answered and said to Balak, "Have I not spoken to you, saying, 'Everything the Lord speaks that I shall do." Bamidbar 23:26


+ 91 Balak said to Balaam, Come now, I will take you to a different place. Perhaps it will please God, and you will curse them for me from there. Bamidbar 23:27


+ 105 How goodly are your tents, O Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel! Bamidbar 24:5


+ 91 He crouches and lies like a lion and like a lioness; who will dare rouse him? Those who bless you shall be blessed, and those who curse you shall be cursed. Bamidbar 24:9


+ 109 Balak's anger flared against Balaam, and he clapped his hands. Balak said to Balaam, I called you to curse my enemies, but you have blessed them these three times. Bamidbar 24:10


+ 80 Now, hurry back to your place. I said I would honor you greatly, but the Lord has deprived you of honor. Bamidbar 24:11


+ 89 Balaam said to Balak, But I even told the messengers you sent to me, saying, Bamidbar 24:12


+ 70 And now, I am going to my people. Come, I will advise you...what this people will do to your people at the end of days. Bamidbar 24:14


+ 82 When he saw the Kenite, he took up his parable and said, How firm is your dwelling place, and your nest is set in a cliff. Bamidbar 24:21


+ 74 For if Kain is laid waste, how far will Assyria take you captive? Bamidbar 24:22


+ 98 Moses said to the judges of Israel, Each of you shall kill the men who became attached to Baal Peor. Bamidbar 25:5


+ 87 Distress the Midianites, and you shall smite them. Bamidbar 25:17


+ 102 For they distress you with their plots which they contrived against you in the incident of Peor and in the incident of Cozbi their sister, the daughter of the Midianite chieftain, who was slain on the day of the plague that had come because of Peor. Bamidbar 25:18


+ 70 You shall apportion the Land among these as an inheritance, in accordance with the number of names. Bamidbar 26:53


+ 86 To the large tribe you shall give a larger inheritance and to a smaller tribe you shall give a smaller inheritance, each person shall be given an inheritance according to his number. Bamidbar 26:54


+ 87 Zelophehad's daughters speak justly. You shall certainly give them a portion of inheritance along with their father's brothers, and you shall transfer their father's inheritance to them. Bamidbar 27:7


+ 93 Speak to the children of Israel saying: If a man dies and has no son, you shall transfer his inheritance to his daughter. Bamidbar 27:8


+ 79 If he has no daughter, you shall give over his inheritance to his brothers. Bamidbar 27:9


+ 80 If he has no brothers, you shall give over his inheritance to his father's brothers. Bamidbar 27:10


+ 111 If his father has no brothers, you shall give over his inheritance to the kinsman closest to him in his family, who shall inherit it. This shall remain a decreed statute, as the Lord commanded Moses. Bamidbar 27:11


+ 77 And when you have seen it, you too will be gathered to your people, just as Aaron your brother was gathered. Bamidbar 27:13


+ 108 Because you disobeyed My command in the desert of Zin when the congregation quarreled, when you were to sanctify Me through the water before their eyes; these were the waters of dispute at Kadesh, in the desert of Zin. Bamidbar 27:14


+ 92 The Lord said to Moses, Take for yourself Joshua the son of Nun, a man of spirit, and you shall lay your hand upon him. Bamidbar 27:18


+ 81 And you shall present him before Eleazar the kohen and before the entire congregation, and you shall command him in their presence. Bamidbar 27:19


+ 100 You shall bestow some of your majesty upon him so that all the congregation of the children of Israel will take heed. Bamidbar 27:20


+ 99 Command the children of Israel and say to them: My offering, My food for My fire offerings, a spirit of satisfaction for Me, you shall take care to offer to Me at its appointed time. Bamidbar 28:2


+ 78 And you shall say to them: This is the fire offering which you shall offer to the Lord: two unblemished lambs in their first year each day as a continual burnt offering. Bamidbar 28:3


+ 68 The one lamb you shall offer up in the morning, and the other lamb you shall offer up in the afternoon. Bamidbar 28:4


+ 87 And the second lamb you shall offer up in the afternoon. You shall offer it up with the same meal offering and libation as the morning sacrifice, a fire offering with a spirit of satisfaction to the Lord. Bamidbar 28:8


+ 80 And on the beginning of your months, you shall offer up a burnt offering to the Lord: two young bulls, one ram, and seven lambs in the first year, all unblemished. Bamidbar 28:11


+ 67 And one young male goat for a sin offering to the Lord; it shall be offered up in addition to the continual burnt offering and its libation. Bamidbar 28:15


+ 73 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, you shall offer up a Passover offering to the Lord. Bamidbar 28:16


+ 83 On the fifteenth day of this month, a festival begins; you shall eat unleavened bread for seven days. Bamidbar 28:17


+ 70 On the first day is a holy convocation; you shall not perform any mundane work. Bamidbar 28:18


+ 75 You shall offer up a fire offering, a burnt offering to the Lord: two young bulls, one ram, and seven lambs in the first year they shall be unblemished for you. Bamidbar 28:19


+ 77 Their meal offerings shall be fine flour mixed with oil; three tenths for each bull and two tenths for the ram you sh
