by Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks zt”l

“Is the aim of the moral life to achieve personal perfection? Or is it to create a decent, just and compassionate society? The intuitive answer of most people would be to say: both.

 

That is what makes Maimonides so acute a thinker. He realizes that you can’t have both. They are in fact different enterprises.”
