Little Daniel, is all excited as he is coming home from school and mentions to his daddy that the teacher spoke about “ethics”. However, he didn’t quite understand what it meant. He asks his father to elaborate. His father says: “Well, Daniel, it’s like this. You know that I am a lawyer and if I have a successful case I might charge my client $100 and my client gives me $100. However, if by mistake two bills get stuck together, the question of ethics is – should I share the extra $100 with my partner?”
Hillel would also say: One who advances his name, destroys his name. One who does not increase, diminishes. One who does not learn is deserving of death. And one who makes personal use of the crown of Torah shall perish.
