Wise Fridays: The Perils of High Office

Rabbi Judah ben Tabai said: If anyone had said to me before I entered high office, “Assume that office,” my only wish would have been to hound him to death. Now that I have entered high office, if anyone were to tell me, “Give it up,” I would pour a kettle of boiling water on his head. Because to high office it is hard to rise, yet…it is even harder to give it up.
