Sometimes, the best way to not get your heart broken is to act like you don’t have one.
—Rabbi Moshe Leib of Sassov (via shiraglassman)
You don’t expect to hear a rabbi say “act as if there were no God” and mean not “do whatever you feel like doing” but “recognize that the ultimate responsibility for doing good in the world lies with you.” I kind of love this.
This isn’t that unexpected tbh
If someone comes to you and asks your help, you shall not turn him off with pious words, saying, “Have faith and take your troubles to God!” You shall act as if there were no God, as if there were only one person in all the world who could help this man–only yourself.
They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.
Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME
I love this I hope those last two actually get made into shirts
