Honor


“If one pursues honor, it will elude him, but if one flees from honor, it will pursue him.” (Talmud Eruvin 13b).

A man once approached his rabbi to ask how it was that he kept fleeing from honor and it somehow never caught up with him. “The trouble is,” said the rabbi, “you keep looking back over your shoulder.” ~ Irving Bunim
