Understanding Heart
If God had appeared to our
pious mothers and .said to them,
as He did to Solomon of old, "Ask,
what shall I give thee"— they
would have answered, "I ask for
no riches nor honors to myself;
but 0 may it be Thy will, Lord
of the Universe, that Thou give
my children an understanding
heart in Torah and Wisdom, so
as to discern the eternal differ-
ence between good and evil."
—Bialik.
