Wise Fridays: Write Your Own Book

“Do not be alarmed when you find the words of the great ones in the land who disagree, but search out and examine for it is for this that you were created and given intelligence from above, and this will assist you. And if you wish to be of benefit to those who come after you as well, take from your own ideas and record them in a book in ink.”

Rabbi Eliezer Ashkenazi
