Hafez Hayyim

"In the last century, a tourist from the States visited the famous Polish rabbi, Hafez Hayyim.

He was astonished to see that the rabbi’s home was only a simple room filled with books. The only furniture was a table and a bench. 

“Rabbi, where is your furniture?” asked the tourist. 

 “Where is yours?” said Hafez. 

“Mine? But I’m passing through. I’m only a visitor here.” 

“So am I.”"
