Sayings of the Day From Rav Noach Weinburg Zatza"l

GYE Corp. Monday, 06 February 2012

Saving the World...

  • The Talmud says that every person must say, "The world was created just for me." That means each of us is responsible for the entire world.
  • We all want greatness. No one says, "I wish to be mediocre." Everyone harbors the secret desire to save the world.
  • "I can't" is idolatry. If the Almighty helps us, we can change the world. And if He doesn't help, we can't do anything.

Pleasure & Joy...

  • God is our father in Heaven. Like a father, all He wants is for us to get the maximum pleasure in life.

  • The opposite of pain is no pain (i.e. comfort). Equating comfort with pleasure is the definition of decadence.

  • Happiness is choosing to take pleasure in what you have.
  • The natural state of every human being is joy. We learn how to make ourselves miserable.


  • The essence of free will is to choose to be a soul, not a body. The battle is to do what your soul wants, not what your body feels like doing.
  • When people say, "You'll grow up," what they really mean is, "You'll give up like I did."

Every Little Bit...

  • Judaism isn't all or nothing. Every mitzvah is a gold mine.
  • Every effort is a success, even if you don't see the results.


  • If you don't know what you are willing to die for, you haven't really begun to live.
  • If being good is worth dying for, then it is worth living for. And if it is worth dying and living for, then it is certainly worth enjoying.
