hassidut

A Quote by Rabbi Menahem Mendel of Kotzk on hassidut, kotzk, self, and identiy

If I am I because I am I, and you are you because you are you, then I am I and you are you. But if I am I because you are you, and you are you because I am I, then I am not I and you are not you.

A Quote by Rabbi Yaakov Yitzhak on hassidut, devine service, and tikkun olam

There are three levels of service. The highest level is that of one who performs good deeds the whole day and yet feels that he has not acheived anything. The second level is someone who, though he has not done anything, knows that he has not corrected anything in this world. This is good, and there is hope for him that he might correct his ways. However, someone who is righteous in his own eyes deceived himself all his life; his good deeds will be lost.
