“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Rabbi Hillel (Clergyman)
Hillel was a famous Jewish religious leader, one of the most important figures in Jewish history. He is associated with the development of the Mishnah and the Talmud. Renowned within Judaism as a sage and scholar, he was the founder of the "Beit Hillel" school for Tannaïm and the founder of a dynasty of Sages who stood at the head of the Jews living in the land of Israel until roughly the fifth century of the Common Era.
He is popularly known as the author of two sayings: "If I am not for myself, who will be ? And when I am for myself, what am 'I'? And if not now, when?" and the expression of the ethic of reciprocity, or "Golden Rule": "That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow. That is the whole Torah; the rest is the explanation; go and learn."
