A handful of Jewish quotes that we should all keep in mind



“Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly, now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it.” – Talmud

“Tzedek Tzedek Tirdof” (Justice, Justice you shall pursue) – Torah

“If you were there and the Romans or Babylonians were about to destroy Jerusalem, and you had the power to something about it, would you sit and mourn and cry? Or would you turn world upside down to change history? So, what is stopping you? Overturn the world today!” – R"Menachem Mendel Scheerson

“there may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest” – Elie Wiesel

“the status of those who observe oppression and remain silent is equal to the status of those who commit the oppression themselves”- Ibn Ezra

and my personal favorite, “to do what is right and just is more favorable to the Lord than sacrifice” – Mishlei
