"The beginning of wisdom is to desire it."
SOLOMON IBN GABIROL
"Where there is no vision, the people perish."
PROVERBS
Those who desire wisdom can hardly do better than to start with this book. Through nearly four thousand years of history, the Jewish people have learned a thing or two, and have extracted from their experiences, both good and bad, a rich essence that speaks to every time and every heart. JEWISH WISDOM gathers more than a thousand proverbs, wise sayings, common-sense observations, and memorable quotations that instruct, inspire, and guide the reader to the good in life. It is a powerful antidote to self-deception, confusion, worry, and fear.
