Busy

“Why are you rushing so much?”
asked the Rabbi.
“I’m rushing after my livelihood,”
the man answered.
“And how do you know,” asked
the Rabbi, “that your livelihood is
running on before you, so that you
have to rush after it? Perhaps it is
behind you, and all you need to do
is stand still.”

– Rabbi Ben Neir of Berdichev
