Wise Fridays: People Are Stingy

People are stingy with money, but we’re also stingy with kavod, with honor. We’re even stingy with ourselves. We’re supposed to say every day, “For me the world was created.” But it’s not being egotistical: everyone else in the world is supposed to think that, too.

– Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach
(as quoted by Rabbi Sholom Brodt)
