Im ain ani li, mi li?
Im ain ani li mi li
Uch'she'ani l'atzmi, ma ani
V'im lo achshav eymatai
If I am not for myself, who will be for me?
And if I am for myself, what am I?
And if not now, when?
Hillel said that over two thousand years ago. (Ethics of the fathers 1:14)
Strange how the words occur to me now. As I weigh the evidence.
Someone will chuckle when they read this. I know who you are.
