Tell it Straight

This is one of the deepest, deepest depths of Rebbe Nachman. How close do you have to be to a person to tell them something straight? Basically, a stranger can ask me, “How much is one and one?” I’ll tell him “two.” I don’t have to love him, and he doesn’t have to love me. I’ll just tell him “two.” But there is certain language which is only used when you love somebody very much. It’s the deepest depths, right? On the one hand, maybe it’s not as clear. But on the other hand, it’s so much deeper.

Joke of the day

A young man learning in Yeshiva is engaged to a wonderful young lady from wealthy home. The father is upset. How is this guy going to make a living? So he takes him into his office to interview him while the mother and the future bride wait nervously outside. The father says, “How do you intend to make a living?” “G-d will provide,” answers the young man. “Well, my daughter’s needs are great; she was brought up that way.” “G-d will provide,” comes the reply. “How about a house? She needs a big house.” “G-d will provide.””How about clothes? She’s used to expensive, elegant dressing.” “G-d will provide.” The father comes out of the interview and the mother and daughter anxiously inquire, “So what do you think?” “Why, he’s a very fine young man. He thinks I’m G-d!”
