I have selected these quotes from the Torah, Talmud and commentaries as well as esteemed Rabbis past (z'l) and current and other Jewish thinkers.

The Torah is the written law containing the 613 Mitzvot (commandments). The Talmud contains the codification of the oral law given with the Torah and its further commentaries. Great Rabbis and thinkers from the past millennium also feature. Time does not appear to diminish wisdom so I hope you find them relevant today as they where when recorded.

They cover a variety of subjects and may you find something in them that speaks to you.
