If not now, when?

If I am not for myself,

who is for me?

And when I am for myself,

what am I?

I don’t know much about this quote, except that it is from a Rabbi who lived in ancient times, whose name was Hillel the Elder. The post is for Jackie at A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales. Jackie challenged me to post three favourite quotes and pass on the challenge. If you’d like to join in please do!

I would love to hear from you . . .
