Thought for the Week

“Do not quarrel with a man without cause if he has done you no harm” (Mishlei 3:30)

Quarrelling can become a passion. No matter what the object may be, a quarrelsome person enjoys making retorts. He likes to be right always and to have the last word; he quarrels for the sake of quarrelling. Be aware of such a tendency. If you are forced to have a dispute with someone, then it should be solely because by his behaviour he has given you good reason for it 

It also honours a man to remain calm and not let himself be drawn into a quarrel even if he has a good cause for it. Only a fool does not avoid dispute, and thereby he makes his foolishness obvious.

'From the Wisdom of Mishlei - R'Hirsch'
