+ 439 In society, we have these unspoken rules of conduct, these 'shoulds.' Even though we pride ourselves on being a democracy, there are all these ways we say you 'should' behave. But what if you're living your life by the 'shoulds' and you're not really living your life? Chris Noth


+ 325 If evil be spoken of you and it be true, correct yourself, if it be a lie, laugh at it. Epictetus


+ 394 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.


+ 420 And I rejoiced to think that I has found in Anaxagoras a teacher of the causes of existence such as I desired, and I imagined that he would tell me first whether the earth is flat or round; and then he would further explain that this position was the best, and I should be satisfied... and not want any other sort of cause. And I thought that I would then go and ask him about the sun and moon and stars, and he would explain to me their comparative swiftness, and their returnings and various states, and how their several affections, active and passive, were all for the best. For I could not imagine that when he spoke of mind as the disposer of them, he would give any other account of their being as they are, except that this was best; and I thought when he had explained to me in detail the cause of each and the cause of all, he would go on to explain to me what was best for me and what was best for all. ...I seized the books and read them as fast as I could in my eagerness to know the better and the worse.


+ 368 Hemans gallows ought to be the fate of all such ambitious men who would involve their country in civil wars, and all the evils in its train that they might reign & ride on its whirlwinds & direct the Storm — The free people of these United States have spoken, and consigned these wicked demagogues to their proper doom. Andrew Jackson


+ 384 All this is not the result of accident. It has a philosophical cause. Without the Constitution and the Union, we could not have attained the result; but even these, are not the primary cause of our great prosperity. There is something back of these, entwining itself more closely about the human heart. That something, is the principle of "Liberty to all"--the principle that clears the path for all--gives hope to all--and, by consequence, enterprize, and industry to all. The expression of that principle, in our Declaration of Independence, was most happy, and fortunate. Without this, as well as with it, we could have declared our independence of Great Britain; but without it, we could not, I think, have secured our free government, and consequent prosperity. No oppressed, people will fight, and endure, as our fathers did, without the promise of something better, than a mere change of masters. The assertion of that principle, at that time, was the word, "fitly spoken" which has proved an "apple of gold" to us. The Union, and the Constitution, are the picture of silver, subsequently framed around it. The picture was made, not to conceal, or destroy the apple; but to adorn, and preserve it. The picture was made for the apple--not the apple for the picture. So let us act, that neither picture, or apple shall ever be blurred, or bruised or broken. That we may so act, we must study, and understand the points of danger. Abraham Lincoln


+ 381 I am oppressed with a sense of the impropriety of uttering words on this occasion. If silence is ever golden, it must be here, beside the graves of fifteen thousand men, whose lives were more significant than speech, and whose death was a poem, the music of which can never be sung. With words we make promises, plight faith, praise virtue. Promises may not be kept, plighted faith may be broken, and vaunted virtue be only the cunning mask of vice. We do not know one promise these men made, one pledge they gave, one word they spoke: but we do know they summed up and perfected, by one supreme act, the highest virtues of men and citizens. For love of country they accepted death, and thus resolved all doubts, and made immortal their patriotism and their virtue. James A. Garfield


+ 359 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


+ 351 We want a man whose life and opinions embody all the achievements of which I have spoken. We want a man who, standing on a mountain height, traces the victorious footsteps of our party in the past, and, carrying in his heart the memory of its glorious deeds, looks forward prepared to meet the dangers to come. We want one who will act in no spirit of unkindness toward those we lately met in battle. James A. Garfield


+ 362 It took us three years to build the NeXT computer. If we'd given customers what they said they wanted, we'd have built a computer they'd have been happy with a year after we spoke to them - not something they'd want now. Steve Jobs


+ 386 The words or the language, as they are written or spoken, do not seem to play any role in my mechanism of thought. The psychical entities which seem to serve as elements in thoughts are certain signs and more or less clear images which can be "voluntarily" reproduced and combined. There is, of course, a certain connection between those elements and relevant logical concepts. It is also clear that the desire to arrive finally at logically connected concepts is the emotional basis of this rather vague play with the above-mentioned elements. . . . The above-mentioned elements are, in my case, of visual and some muscular type. Conventional words or other signs have to be sought for laboriously only in a secondary stage, when the mentioned associative play is sufficiently established and can be reproduced at will. Albert Eistein


+ 286 Don't mix your bad words with your bad moods. You will have many opportunities to change a mood, but you will never get the oppotunity to replace the words you spoke.


+ 301 Out of thee Bethlehem shall Messiah go forth before me, to exercise dominion over Israel. Whose Name has been spoken from of old from the day of eternity. – Micah 5:2 Targum Jonathan


+ 344 R. Joshua b. Levi met Elijah standing by the entrance of R. Simeon b. Yohai's tomb. He asked him: "Have I a portion in the world to come?" He replied, "if this Master desires it." R. Joshua b. Levi said, "I saw two, but heard the voice of a third." He then asked him, "When will the Messiah come?" — "Go and ask him himself," was his reply. "Where is he sitting?" — "At the entrance." "And by what sign may I recognise him?" — "He is sitting among the poor lepers: all of them untie [them] all at once, and rebandage them together, whereas he unties and rebandages each separately, [before treating the next], thinking, should I be wanted, [it being time for my appearance as the Messiah] I must not be delayed [through having to bandage a number of sores]." So he went to him and greeted him, saying, "Peace upon thee, Master and Teacher." "Peace upon thee, O son of Levi," he replied. "When wilt thou come, Master?" asked he. "Today," was his answer. On his returning to Elijah, the latter enquired, "What did he say to thee?" — "peace Upon thee, O son of Levi," he answered. Thereupon he [Elijah] observed, "He thereby assured thee and thy father of [a portion in] the world to come." "He spoke falsely to me," he rejoined, "stating that he would come today, but has not." He [Elijah] answered him, "This is what he said to thee, To-day, if ye will listen to his voice."


+ 368 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


+ 218 Spoken words can be like deep water, but wisdom is like a flowing stream. Mishlei 18:4


+ 242 The right word spoken at the right time is as beautiful as gold apples in a silver bowl. Mishlei 25:11


+ 264 A wise saying spoken by a fool is as useless as the legs of a crippled person. Mishlei 26:7


+ 239 A wise saying spoken by a fool is like a thorn stuck in the hand of a drunk. Mishlei 26:9


+ 300 We have marched in lockstep with Israel. We've been side by side with them as they've confronted the Iranian nuclear threat and we'll continue to be. All options do remain on the table. That's something that we've said all along. That continues to be the case. Josh Earnest, White House Spokesman


+ 285 I spoke to myself, saying, "I acquired and increased great wisdom, more than all who were before me over Jerusalem"; and my heart saw much wisdom and knowledge. Kohelet 1:16


+ 276 The words of the wise are heard when spoken softly, more than the shout of a ruler of fools. Kohelet 9:17


+ 290 It took us three years to build the NeXT computer. If we'd given customers what they said they wanted, we'd have built a computer they'd have been happy with a year after we spoke to them — not something they'd want now. That same innovation, that same engineering, that same talent applied where we don't run up against the fact that Microsoft got this monopoly, and boom! We have 75 per cent market share.

+ 331 My lover spoke and said to me,
Get up, my darling;
let’s go away, my beautiful one.
Song of Solomon 2:10


+ 312 I opened the door for my lover,
but my lover had left and was gone.
When he spoke, he took my breath away.
I looked for him, but I could not find him;
I called for him, but he did not answer.
Song of Solomon 5:6


+ 209 And God spoke to Noah saying: Bereshit 8:15


+ 190 And Abram went, as the Lord had spoken to him, and Lot went with him, and Abram was seventy five years old when he left Haran. Bereshit 12:4


+ 190 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


+ 139 And Abram fell upon his face, and God spoke with him, saying, Bereshit 17:3


+ 229 And Abraham took Ishmael his son and all those born in his house and all those purchased with his money, every male of the people of Abraham's household, and he circumcised the flesh of their foreskin on that very day, as God had spoken with him. Bereshit 17:23


+ 208 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


+ 229 For I have known him because he commands his sons and his household after him, that they should keep the way of the Lord to perform righteousness and justice, in order that the Lord bring upon Abraham that which He spoke concerning him. Bereshit 18:19


+ 211 So Lot went forth and spoke to his sons-in-law, the suitors of his daughters, and he said, Arise, go forth from this place, for the Lord is destroying the city, but he seemed like a comedian in the eyes of his sons-in-law. Bereshit 19:14


+ 187 And Abimelech arose early in the morning, and he summoned all his servants, and he spoke all these words in their ears; and the men were very frightened. Bereshit 20:8


+ 160 And the Lord remembered Sarah as He had said, and the Lord did to Sarah as He had spoken. Bereshit 21:1


+ 201 And Sarah conceived and bore a son to Abraham in his old age, at the time of which God had spoken to him. Bereshit 21:2


+ 207 And Isaac spoke to Abraham his father, and he said, My father! And he said, Here I am, my son. And he said, Here are the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering? Bereshit 22:7


+ 186 And they came to the place of which God had spoken to him, and Abraham built the altar there and arranged the wood, and he bound Isaac his son and placed him on the altar upon the wood. Bereshit 22:9


+ 171 And Abraham arose from before his dead, and he spoke to the sons of Heth, saying, Bereshit 23:3


+ 187 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


+ 208 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


+ 234 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


+ 184 And food was set before him to eat, but he said, I will not eat until I have spoken my words. And he said, Speak. Bereshit 24:33


+ 147 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


+ 217 But Rebecca overheard when Isaac spoke to Esau his son, and Esau went to the field to hunt game, to bring it. Bereshit 27:5


+ 215 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


+ 200 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


+ 208 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


+ 211 And his soul cleaved to Dinah the daughter of Jacob; he loved the girl and spoke to the girl's heart. Bereshit 34:3


+ 144 And Shechem spoke to his father Hamor saying, "Take this girl for me as a wife." Bereshit 34:4


+ 156 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


+ 265 Thereupon, Jacob's sons answered Shechem and his father Hamor with cunning, and they spoke, because after all he had defiled their sister Dinah. Bereshit 34:13


+ 148 And Hamor and his son Shechem came to the gate of their city, and they spoke to the people of their city, saying, Bereshit 34:20


+ 159 And God went up from him in the place where He had spoken with him. Bereshit 35:13


+ 190 Now Jacob had erected a monument in the place where He had spoken with him, a stone monument, and he poured a libation upon it, and then he poured oil upon it. Bereshit 35:14


+ 165 Jacob named the place where God had spoken with him Beth el. Bereshit 35:15


+ 160 Now it came about when she spoke to Joseph day in and day out, that he did not obey her, to lie beside her and to be with her. Bereshit 39:10


+ 148 That she called to the people of her house, and she spoke to them, saying, Look! He brought us a Hebrew man to mock us. He came to me to lie with me, but I called loudly. Bereshit 39:14


+ 174 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


+ 151 Now the chief cupbearer spoke with Pharaoh, saying, I call to mind my faults today. Bereshit 41:9


+ 147 It is this matter that I have spoken to Pharaoh; what God is about to do He has shown Pharaoh. Bereshit 41:28


+ 170 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


+ 154 And Joseph said to them, This is just what I have spoken to you, saying, You are spies. Bereshit 42:14


+ 159 And he turned away from them and wept, then returned to them and spoke to them; and he took Simeon from among them and imprisoned him before their eyes. Bereshit 42:24


+ 126 The man, the lord of the land, spoke to us harshly, and he accused us of spying on the land. Bereshit 42:30


+ 170 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


+ 175 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


+ 148 So they drew near the man who was over Joseph's house, and they spoke to him at the entrance of the house. Bereshit 43:19


+ 155 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

+ 166 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


+ 221 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


+ 152 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


+ 162 Now the king of Egypt spoke to the Hebrew midwives, one who was named Shifrah, and the second, who was named Puah. Shemot 1:15


+ 190 The midwives, however, feared God; so they did not do as the king of Egypt had spoken to them, but they enabled the boys to live. Shemot 1:17


+ 158 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


+ 152 And Aaron spoke all the words that the Lord had spoken to Moses, and he performed the signs before the eyes of the people. Shemot 4:30


+ 150 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


+ 132 God spoke to Moses, and He said to him, I am the Lord. Shemot 6:2


+ 143 Moses spoke thus to the children of Israel, but they did not hearken to Moses because of their shortness of breath and because of their hard labor. Shemot 6:9


+ 139 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 6:10


+ 180 But Moses spoke before the Lord, saying, Behold, the children of Israel did not hearken to me. How then will Pharaoh hearken to me, seeing that I am of closed lips? Shemot 6:12


+ 167 So the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, and He commanded them concerning the children of Israel and concerning Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to let the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt. Shemot 6:13


+ 153 They are the ones who spoke to Pharaoh, the king of Egypt, to let the children of Israel out of Egypt; they are Moses and Aaron. Shemot 6:27


+ 121 Now it came to pass on the day that the Lord spoke to Moses in the land of Egypt, Shemot 6:28


+ 129 That the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, I am the Lord. Speak to Pharaoh everything that I speak to you. Shemot 6:29


+ 136 And Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron was eighty three years old when they spoke to Pharaoh. Shemot 7:7


+ 151 The Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, Shemot 7:8


+ 160 But Pharaoh's heart remained steadfast, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 7:13


+ 146 And the necromancers of Egypt did likewise with their secret rites, and Pharaoh's heart was steadfast, and he did not heed them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 7:22


+ 151 When Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 8:11


+ 175 So the necromancers said to Pharaoh, It is the finger of God, but Pharaoh's heart remained steadfast, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord had spoken. Shemot 8:15


+ 153 But the Lord strengthened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not hearken to them, as the Lord spoke to Moses. Shemot 9:12


+ 161 And Pharaoh's heart was hardened, and he did not let the children of Israel go out, as the Lord had spoken through the hand of Moses. Shemot 9:35


+ 162 Thereupon, Moses said, You have spoken correctly; I shall no longer see your face. Shemot 10:29


+ 121 The Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, Shemot 12:1


+ 122 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


+ 171 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


+ 130 Take also your flocks and also your cattle, as you have spoken, and go, but you shall also bless me. Shemot 12:32


+ 116 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 13:1


+ 122 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 14:1


+ 128 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


+ 161 Then Moses and the children of Israel sang this song to the Lord, and they spoke, saying, I will sing to the Lord, for very exalted is He; a horse and its rider He cast into the sea. Shemot 15:1


+ 143 And it came to pass when Aaron spoke to the entire community of the children of Israel, that they turned toward the desert, and behold! the glory of the Lord appeared in the cloud. Shemot 16:10


+ 131 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Shemot 16:11


+ 157 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


+ 167 And all the people replied in unison and said, All that the Lord has spoken we shall do! and Moses took the words of the people back to the Lord. Shemot 19:8


+ 120 God spoke all these words, to respond: Shemot 20:1


+ 197 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


+ 164 So Moses came and told the people all the words of the Lord and all the ordinances, and all the people answered in unison and said, "All the words that the Lord has spoken we will do." Shemot 24:3


+ 129 And he took the Book of the Covenant and read it within the hearing of the people, and they said, "All that the Lord spoke we will do and we will hear." Shemot 24:7


+ 127 The Lord spoke to Moses saying: Shemot 25:1


+ 123 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:11


+ 121 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:17


+ 111 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 30:22


+ 116 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 31:1


+ 118 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 31:12


+ 135 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


+ 156 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


+ 134 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


+ 146 And it came to pass when Moses descended from Mount Sinai, and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses' hand when he descended from the mountain and Moses did not know that the skin of his face had become radiant while He had spoken with him. Shemot 34:29


+ 129 Afterwards all the children of Israel would draw near, and he would command them everything that the Lord had spoken with him on Mount Sinai. Shemot 34:32


+ 116 And Moses spoke to the entire community of the children of Israel, saying: This is the word that the Lord has commanded to say: Shemot 35:4


+ 139 And they spoke to Moses, saying: The people are bringing very much, more than is enough for the labor of the articles which the Lord had commanded to do. Shemot 36:5


+ 102 The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Shemot 40:1


+ 167 And He called to Moses, and the Lord spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting, saying, Vayikra 1:1


+ 108 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 4:1


+ 118 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 5:14


+ 107 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 5:20


+ 108 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 6:1


+ 128 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 6:12


+ 116 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 6:17


+ 109 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 7:22


+ 114 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 7:28


+ 110 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 8:1


+ 143 Then Moses said to Aaron, This is what the Lord spoke, when He said, I will be sanctified through those near to Me, and before all the people I will be glorified. And Aaron was silent. Vayikra 10:3


+ 121 So they approached and carried them with their tunics to the outside of the camp, as Moses had spoken. Vayikra 10:5


+ 111 And the Lord spoke to Aaron, saying, Vayikra 10:8


+ 132 And to instruct the children of Israel regarding all the statutes which the Lord has spoken to them through Moses. Vayikra 10:11


+ 158 And Moses spoke to Aaron and his surviving sons, Eleazar and Ithamar, Take the meal offering that is left over from the Lord's fire offerings, and eat it as unleavened loaves beside the altar, for it is a holy of holies; Vayikra 10:12


+ 128 And Aaron spoke to Moses, "But today, did they offer up their sin offering and their burnt offering before the Lord? But if tragic events like these had befallen me, and if I had eaten a sin offering today, would it have pleased the Lord? Vayikra 10:19


+ 108 And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, to say to them: Vayikra 11:1


+ 100 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 12:1


+ 123 And the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying: Vayikra 13:1


+ 106 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, Vayikra 14:1


+ 115 And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, Vayikra 14:33


+ 113 And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying, Vayikra 15:1

+ 103 May the Lord God of your forefathers add to you a thousandfold as many as you are, and may He bless you, as He spoke concerning you! Devarim 1:11


+ 107 And you answered me and said, The thing you have spoken is good for us to do. Devarim 1:14


+ 97 Behold, the Lord, your God, has set the land before you; go up and possess it, as the Lord, God of your fathers has spoken to you; you shall neither fear nor be dismayed. Devarim 1:21


+ 107 So I spoke to you, but you did not listen, and you rebelled against the command of the Lord, and you acted wickedly and went up to the mountain. Devarim 1:43


+ 110 Then we turned and journeyed into the desert by way of the Red Sea, as the Lord had spoken to me, and we circled Mount Seir for many days. Devarim 2:1


+ 85 And the Lord spoke to me, saying, Devarim 2:2


+ 81 That the Lord spoke to me saying, Devarim 2:17


+ 105 The Lord spoke to you out of the midst of the fire; you heard the sound of the words, but saw no image, just a voice. Devarim 4:12


+ 115 And you shall watch yourselves very well, for you did not see any image on the day that the Lord spoke to you at Horeb from the midst of the fire. Devarim 4:15


+ 117 These are the testimonies, statutes and ordinances, which Moses spoke to the children of Israel when they went out of Egypt, Devarim 4:45


+ 103 Face to face, the Lord spoke with you at the mountain out of the midst of the fire: Devarim 5:4

+ 103 And the Lord heard the sound of your words when you spoke to me, and the Lord said to me, "I have heard the sound of the words of this people that they have spoken to you; they have done well in all that they have spoken. Devarim 5:25


+ 111 And you shall, therefore, hearken, O Israel, and be sure to perform, so that it will be good for you, and so that you may increase exceedingly, just as the Lord, the God of your fathers, spoke to you, a land flowing with milk and honey. Devarim 6:3

+ 109 You shall know this day, that it is the Lord your God Who passes over before you as a consuming fire He will destroy them, and He will subdue them before you; and you shall drive them out and destroy them quickly, as the Lord spoke to you. Devarim 9:3


+ 107 And the Lord gave me two stone tablets, inscribed by the finger of God, and on them was inscribed according to all the words that the Lord spoke with you on the mountain from the midst of the fire on the day of the assembly. Devarim 9:10


+ 105 And the Lord spoke to me further, saying, "I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people. Devarim 9:13


+ 104 Lest [the people of] the land from which you brought us out will say, 'Because of the Lord's inability to bring them to the land about which He spoke to them, and because of His hatred toward them, He has brought them out to slay them in the desert.' Devarim 9:28

+ 110 And that prophet, or that dreamer of a dream shall be put to death; because he spoke falsehood about the Lord, your God Who brought you out of the land of Egypt, and Who redeemed you from the house of bondage, to lead you astray from the way in which the Lord, your God, commanded you to go; so shall you clear away the evil from your midst. Devarim 13:6

+ 81 And the Lord said to me, "They have done well in what they have spoken. Devarim 18:17


+ 102 If the prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, and the thing does not occur and does not come about, that is the thing the Lord did not speak. The prophet has spoken it wantonly; you shall not be afraid of him. Devarim 18:22


+ 106 And when the Lord, your God, expands your boundary, as He swore to your forefathers, and He gives you all the land of which He spoke to give to your forefathers; Devarim 19:8


+ 100 Observe and do what is emitted from your lips just as you have pledged to the Lord, your God, as a donation, which you have spoken with your mouth. Devarim 23:24


+ 94 And the Lord has selected you this day to be His treasured people, as He spoke to you, and so that you shall observe all His commandments, Devarim 26:18


+ 89 And to make you supreme, above all the nations that He made, so that you will have praise, a distinguished name and glory; and so that you will be a holy people to the Lord, your God, as He spoke. Devarim 26:19

+ 84 And the Lord spoke to Moses on that very day, saying, Devarim 32:48


+ 110 I have a little theory that I'd like to air here, if I may. What is it that you think makes you magicians?" More silence. Fogg was well into rhetorical-question territory now anyway. He spoke more softly. "Is it because you are intelligent? Is it because you are brave and good? Is is because you're special? Maybe. Who knows. But I'll tell you something: I think you're magicians because you're unhappy. A magician is strong because he feels pain. He feels the difference between what the world is and what he would make of it. Or what did you think that stuff in your chest was? A magician is strong because he hurts more than others. His wound is his strength. Most people carry that pain around inside them their whole lives, until they kill the pain by other means, or until it kills them. But you, my friends, you found another way: a way to use the pain. To burn it as fuel, for light and warmth. You have learned to break the world that has tried to break you. Lev Grossman, The Magicians


+ 133 Your god, sir, is the World. In my eyes, you, too, if not an infidel, are an idolater. I conceive that you ignorantly worship: in all things you appear to me too superstitious. Sir, your god, your great Bel, your fish-tailed Dagon, rises before me as a demon. You, and such as you, have raised him to a throne, put on him a crown, given him a sceptre. Behold how hideously he governs! See him busied at the work he likes best - making marriages. He binds the young to the old, the strong to the imbecile. He stretches out the arm of Mezentius and fetters the dead to the living. In his realm there is hatred - secret hatred: there is disgust - unspoken disgust: there is treachery - family treachery: there is vice - deep, deadly, domestic vice. In his dominions, children grow unloving between parents who have never loved: infants are nursed on deception from their very birth: they are reared in an atmosphere corrupt with lies ... All that surrounds him hastens to decay: all declines and degenerates under his sceptre. Your god is a masked Death. ? Charlotte Bronte, Shirley

+ 116 Sustaining the World

by Avraham Shoar

In his youth, the writer, Avraham Shoar, was the chavruta (study partner) of Rav Kook in the beis medrash of Lutzin. He tells that young Avraham Yitzchak’s diligence was extraordinary. If a short amount of time passed without learning Torah, he felt real anguish: a actual physical pain:

One day (tells Avraham Shoar), he told me: “I have decided that two nights a week, we should learn mishmar (extended learning). Two nights a week, let us learn until dawn.”

I remember one such mishmar night, typical of the character of this extraordinary man. We were learning Chulin from the Talmud together. We were engaged in halachic dispute. I stood my ground, and we argued at length until we at last came to a shared understanding.

It was late. We were learning at the bimah. Around us was silence. In the adjoining dormitory, all the students were already asleep. Before us, burning above the holy ark, was the ner tamid—the eternal light. And we took a short rest from our toil and sat and conversed.

He said to me in a secretive voice: “Do you know, perhaps just the two of us are now sustaining the entire world. Perhaps the Holy One, blessed be He, is judging the world right now. And mankind’s sins are being considered, and they outweigh the good.

“Now the angel Michael, the one defender out of a thousand, picks up the words of our Torah learning and places them on the scale, and our words of Torah help outweigh the other side. If so, we have merited to sustain the entire world. And we are still just children. This is the first year that I am wearing tefillin, and as for you, you are not even bar mitzvah.”

As he spoke, I was lifted to the highest worlds. I could see, almost with my own eyes, the heavenly host: the fiery scale, the angels and cherubim. They were weighing the acts of humanity, and behold, they placed upon the scale the page of Chulin that we were learning, with the commentaries of Rashi, Tosafot and the Maharsha. And this page gave merit to the entire world.”

As I sat, submerged in my visions, Avraham Yitzchak’s voice continued. I heard him say with great simplicity: “A day will come when and I will be great in Torah. And then...” He touched me so that I would turn to him, and I saw his face burning, his eyes brilliant and sparkling like fiery coals set in milk. And he whispered: “I will go to the land of Israel, to the holy city of Jerusalem, and I will found a yeshiva there, like Kerem Beyavneh. And students from all over the world will gather there, and ‘from Jerusalem will come forth Torah.’”

These were the youthful dreams of Rav Kook.

These were his desires and yearnings when he had just become bar mitzvah.

Malachim Kivnei Adam, pp. 4-5


+ 52 Through the natural remedy of the engagement in Torah and Mitzvot Lishma, which the Giver of the Torah knows, as our sages wrote (Kidushin 30b), “The Creator says, ‘I have created the evil inclination, I have created for it the Torah as a spice.’” Thus, that creature develops and marches upward in degrees of the above spoken exaltedness, until he loses all remnants of self-love and all the Mitzvot in his body rise, and he performs all his actions only to bestow, so even the necessity that he receives flows in the direction of bestowal, so he can bestow.
