Jewish Self Help and Growth

"The entire purpose of our existence is to overcome our negative habits."  - Vilna Gaon, Commentary to Mishlei 4:13

Rabbi Yisrael Salanter said: "One can possess broad Talmudic knowledge and be a fountain of deep penetrating analysis and yet he does not deserve to be considered a true talmid chacham (Torah scholar).  If he has not allowed his Torah knowledge to refine his character and restructure his personality, he is an am haaretz (boorish ignoramus) who happens to know how to learn."
