As soon as the righteous [those who wish to justify the Creator] unite, there immediately intensifies mutual hatred [egoism] that causes fights and quarrels.
– The book, Noam Elimelech
When ten of Israel [who strive toward the Creator] unite in order to acquire the property of love and bestowal, through their force of oneness, the property of love and bestowal is drawn to the world.
– Yehudah Aryeh Leib Alter, The Language of Truth
A Righteous Man Is The Foundation Of The World
He Who Justifies The Creator Is The Righteous One
