"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.”"
