Yosef Dov Soloveitchik, aka Beis Halevi

Polish Rabbi, Author of Beis Halevi

"At times a person might feel so embarrassed and discouraged over the wrongs he has committed that he will give up trying to improve. Despair is wrong. You always have the ability to improve yourself and should never become discouraged."

"Anyone who runs after worldly pleasures is running after something that does not really exist. The reality is that the pleasure he seeks will not be found in the matter he desires."

"Fear destroys desires... Even a small amount of fear of the Almighty will remove your coveting."
