Shimon hatzadik said:
"all shlosha devorim ho'olom oimed,
al hatora, al ha-avoda v'al gemilus chassodim"
that is what the world stands on.
what do i stand on?
i have a feeling i dont have what to stand on...
much to say but ich halt zich ain...
as Shimon, ben gamliel, says later on in the perek,
"....v'loi motzosi l'guf, tov mishtika..."
so i guess i'll go eat ice cream.
with pickles. maybe.
("I once heard someone be medayeik that the good that comes from silence is not just avoidance of issur, but is a physical good to the body - lo matzasi tov *laguf*....")
