The Teachings of Rebbe Pinchas of Koretz and His Disciple, Rebbe Raphael of Bershad
ON LANGUAGE, ACTIONS, THOUGHTS, AND DREAMS
R’ Pinchas said: “Sometimes, a man whose deeds are corrupt will live to be 70 years old because of one word he uttered or one gesture he made in complete sincerity, entirely for the sake of G-d. It was essential that he be born for this solitary word or gesture. It could not have been done by anyone else, for no two people were created exactly alike, since the beginning of the world until the end of days”.*
*Imrei Pinchas HaShalem, Darkei Avodat HaShem 1 (A, B), cited in The Great Chasidic Masters, by Avraham Y. Finkel, p. 36 (B)
YOU KNOW YOU ARE GETTING OLD WHEN… The gleam in your eyes is from the sun hitting your bifocals. Everything hurts, and what doesn’t hurt, doesn’t work. Your children begin to look middle-aged. Your little black book contains only names ending in M.D. You are startled the first time somebody calls you, “old timer”. Your back goes out more often than you do. Your pacemaker makes the garage door go up. Your belt won’t buckle, but your knees do. The little old lady you help across the street is your wife. Your mind makes contracts your body can’t keep. You decide to procrastinate…but don’t get around to it.
