Honor Destroys


Honor destroys both the body and the soul.  It is disgraceful for me to be addressed as, “Our master and teacher,” since I am neither.  I wish to be addressed only as “The one who loves us and seeks our good.”  I think that might be the truth. ~ R’ Simcha Zissel Ziv zt”l (The Alter of Kelm)
