Random Quote #27 topic: hebraic, Translations from the Talmud, Midrashim and Kabbala

The question asked above by Acheer has been practically resolved
by all wise men from the beginning of the world, but it is the
boast of the Hegelians that it has for the first time been
resolved philosophically by their master. Others had maintained
that you could not think a thing but through its opposite; he
first maintained it could not exist but through its opposite,
that, in fact, the thing and its opposite must needs arise
together, and that eternally, as complements of one unity: the
white is not there without the black, nor the black without the
white; the good is not there without the evil, nor the evil
without the good.

Pride is unbecoming in women. There were two proud women, and their
names were contemptible; the name of the one, Deborah, meaning wasp, and
of the other, Huldah, weasel. Respecting the wasp it is written (Judges
iv. 6), "And she sent and called Barak," whereas she ought to have gone
to him. Concerning the weasel it is written (2 Kings xxii. 15), "Tell
the man that sent you," whereas she should have said, "Tell the king."

THE TALMUD, _Meggillah_, fol. 14, col. 2.
