QotD: Talmud on The Work

Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world's grief.
Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly, now.
You are not obligated to complete the work,
but neither are you free to abandon it.

-The Talmud

Concisely stated and precisely true!

A perfect motto for lovers everywhere.

Reminds me of Mother Theresa's statement that:
What we do is a mere drop in the ocean, but each
drop contributes to the fullness of the ocean.

Yes, or in another way: "No one can do everything, but everyone must do something".
