Some Weekly Thoughts from Derech Emet.

Yaarot Debash, Volume 1 of 2, Derush 1, page 3:

There is no mitzvah that does not bring a man to perfection.

Rabbi Yehonatan Eybeschutz was born in Kraków in 1690,
became dayan of Prague (Czech Republic) in 1736,
became Rabbi of Metz (northeast France near Germany) in 1741,
and died in Altona (Germany) in 1764.
Yaaros Devash volume 1 was published in Lvov in 1798;
Yaaros Devash volume 2 was published in 1799.


Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzensky (born 1863, died 1940)
always recited Birkat HaMazon from a siddur,
even though he enjoyed a photographic memory.

MICROBIOGRAPHY: Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzensky was
recognized as the Gadol HaDor by the Chafetz Chaim.

Thinking about HaKadosh Baruch Hu is not that common;
and that is the purpose of Shabbat.

in Teaneck, New Jersey in his lecture titled:
Tehillim and Tefillah Chapter 92 The Song of Shabbat,
time 22:52 to time 23:00.
