4.0 out of 5 stars Some partiality shines through, imo. 26 Oct 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Apart from some partiality on behalf of some old ruins in Jerusalem and Jehova, there is some splendid thought in the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is not wisdom to be always wise 10 Nov 2004
By Shalom Freedman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a book of Jewish Wisdom in which a large number of entries alphabetically arranged are each provided with a small number of sayings. The attributions are very general (i.e. instead of a particular Tractate and page, a number of sayings are simply attributed as ' Talmud') .In other words this is a general work for the general reader who does not have Jewish knowledge. This does not mean of course that it does not have many memorable sayings which it does. The authors in their introduction say "These proverbs and wise sayings seek to help us improve our character, deepen our understanding of life, and expand our wisdom so that we become better people,enjoy life more,and make this world a happier, more just place" Let us hope that the readers feel a small part of the author- editors goals are achieved.

" Man was not brought into the world to enjoy himself" Abraham ibn Ezra

" He who raises a child is called father, not only the man who gave it birth . "Exodus Rabbah"

"Happiness is found in a happy heart " Persian Jewish saying

"Who is wise? He who learns from all men" Pirke Avot
