The Sage Cooks Breakfast

A wise old Sage in the woods one day
He cooked up some eggs on his campfire tray
The wise old Sage, he looked content
As he cooked his eggs on the fire’s vent

The sizzle of the eggs filled the air
As he cooked with a bit of care
He flipped the eggs with a ladle so true
The sizzle of the eggs, it filled the view

The Sage, he cooked up his meal with glee
The eggs, they cooked to perfection, you see
He served up the eggs on a tin plate
Enjoyed with friends, it was no debate

The wise old Sage, no ordinary man
To cook up eggs, it was his master plan
The wise old Sage, did not fool or jest
Cooking up eggs on the campfire’s best

Quote of the Day: Myself

“If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?”

Rabbi Hillel

Rabbi Hillel (c. 110 BCE – 10 CE) was a prominent Jewish sage and religious leader who lived in Jerusalem during the Second Temple period. He is considered one of the greatest rabbis in Jewish history and his teachings continue to influence Jewish thought and practice to this day.

Hillel is known for his emphasis on ethical and moral teachings, particularly his focus on the importance of compassion, humility, and social justice. He is also known for his debates and discussions with the rival rabbi Shammai, with whom he disagreed on many issues, but always maintained a respectful and constructive dialogue.

Hillel is credited with several well-known sayings and teachings, including the Golden Rule: “What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow man. This is the entire Law; all the rest is commentary.”

Hillel’s teachings continue to be studied and celebrated in Jewish communities around the world, and his legacy as a compassionate and wise leader has had a lasting impact on Jewish thought and practice.

The above quote is often interpreted as an exhortation of personal responsibility and action. The first part of the quote, “If I am not for myself, who is for me?” suggests that an individual must take responsibility for their own well-being and cannot rely solely on the support of others. It emphasizes the importance of self-care and self-preservation.

The second part, “And if I am only for myself, what am I?” suggests that while self-care is important, it is not enough to live a fulfilling life. The quote implies that one should strive for a balance between caring for oneself and caring for others.

The final part, “And if not now, when?” emphasizes the importance of taking action in the present moment. It suggests that if one waits too long to take action, opportunities may be lost or the chance for personal growth and development may be missed.

Overall, the quote encourages individuals to take responsibility for themselves, find a balance between self-care and care for others, and take action in the present moment to achieve their goals and fulfill their potential.

Advice of the Day: Sniffing

I don’t care how nice the hand soap smells, you should never walk out of the restroom sniffing your fingers.

It is generally not considered polite or appropriate to sniff your fingers in public, regardless of the context. Sniffing your fingers can be perceived as unhygienic, rude, or inappropriate, and may make other people uncomfortable or annoyed.

However, there may be some situations where sniffing your fingers is necessary or acceptable, such as if you have spilled a strong-smelling substance on your hands, or if you are testing a perfume or fragrance in a store. In these cases, it is important to do so discreetly and without drawing attention to yourself, and to use good hygiene practices like washing your hands afterwards if necessary.

Overall, it is advisable to avoid sniffing your fingers in public whenever possible and to use good judgement and common sense when deciding whether or not to do so in specific situations.

Thought of the Day: Stairs

You can’t stand backwards on stairs!

The way you are standing on the stairs can indicate the direction of travel. When standing facing forward on the stairs, you are generally going up, while standing backward usually indicates that you are going down. However, this is not always the case, and it depends on the context and the specific staircase you are using.

For example, in some cultures or places, standing backward on stairs may be considered impolite or inappropriate, regardless of the direction of travel. Additionally, in some buildings or structures, the direction of the stairs may not follow the conventional pattern or may be unclear due to poor signage or lighting. Therefore, it is important to always pay attention to your surroundings and any instructions or signs provided and to adjust your behavior accordingly.

The Sage gives a Policeman a Piggyback

A wise old Sage gave a piggyback
To a British policeman in a sack
He carried him away with a smile
For mile after mile after mile

The policeman was feeling quite perplexed
Who was this Sage, he had to guess
But he soon found out The Sage was wise
And his strength, he did not despise

The policeman was now in a state
From The Sage’s swift and steady gait
But he soon forgot his cares and woes
And was soon in a state of repose

The Sage, his strength he did not boast
But with each step, he made a toast
To the policeman, and his strong back
He carried him along the winding track

The policeman saw The Sage’s heart
And was thankful for being given a start
And vowed that he’ll always be humble and kind
For the wise old Sage had given him peace of mind.

Quote of the Day: Hope and Torment

“Hope in reality is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) was a German philosopher, cultural critic, and poet. He is known for his works on morality, religion, culture, and the human condition. Nietzsche’s philosophy is often characterized as a critique of traditional values and beliefs, and an exploration of the human potential for creativity and self-realization.

Some of his most famous works include “Thus Spoke Zarathustra,” “Beyond Good and Evil,” and “The Genealogy of Morals.” In these works, Nietzsche proposed new ideas and concepts that challenged the prevailing beliefs and values of his time. He argued for the need to create new values and a new morality that would enable individuals to achieve their full potential and live fulfilling lives.

Nietzsche’s ideas have had a profound impact on modern philosophy, literature, and culture. His influence can be seen in the work of many notable thinkers and writers, including Martin Heidegger, Michel Foucault, and Jean-Paul Sartre, among others. Despite his lasting impact, Nietzsche’s work was not fully appreciated during his lifetime, and he suffered from mental and physical illness that ultimately led to his death at the age of 55.

The quote means that in some cases, having hope can actually be worse than not having hope at all. When a person is facing a difficult situation or problem, hope can prolong the pain and suffering by keeping them focused on a desired outcome that may never materialize. In this way, hope can lead to disappointment, frustration, and even despair.

Nietzsche believed that it is better to face reality as it is, without hope or false expectations, so that one can accept the situation and move on. He thought that by accepting reality as it is, one can find the inner strength to face challenges and overcome obstacles without being held back by false hope.

Overall, the quote suggests that hope can be a double-edged sword and that sometimes it can be better to face reality without it in order to minimize suffering and find a path forward.

Advice of the Day: Staring

If you stared at something you dropped on the ground, eventually someone will pick it up for you.

I would love this to be true but I believe it is a myth! Looking at something dropped on the ground will not magically make someone pick it up for you. In fact, many people believe that if you stare at something you’ve dropped, it will just make it more awkward for someone else to pick it up for you. It is much better to simply ask for help from someone nearby.

Thought of the Day: Numbers

When you count from one to two you skip an infinite amount of numbers.

The first known counting system was developed by the Sumerians in Mesopotamia around 4000 BC. This system was created in order to keep track of economic transactions and was based on the number 60.

The number 60 was chosen because it is a highly composite number, meaning it has many divisors. This made it useful for counting and dividing into smaller parts. Additionally, the Sumerian base-60 counting system was used to keep track of time, which is why we still use 60 minutes in an hour and 60 seconds in a minute.
