Daily Thought

The sages said about chutzpah, “Damned is the one who has it, and damned is the one who does not.”

Chutzpah makes a man into an idol. But without it, how can he change the world?

Our conscious mind must know it is nothing, and the power G‑d has placed in our heart may then burst forth.

Maamarei Admor Hazaken Haketzarim, p. 370; Behar-Bechukotai 5731:2.
