Holding a Pen


There was once a famous strong man named Breitbart who became so weak due to illness that he was unable to hold a pen in his hand. At the time, an article was published which stated “the same hands that were once able to break metal bars now tremble from a light pen.”  R’ Yeruchem Levovitz commented, “people tend to think holding a pen is so simple and natural that no strength is needed for the task. Only extra special strength, they think, is a Divine gift. In fact, the strength to hold a pen is also a Divine gift, and without that gift a person would be unable to hold anything.”
