From the village of Oleshnya
Who had know him when he was young.
Not being aware of his rise in the world
The peasant called to him, 'Baer, what's new with you?'
'And what's new with you?' asked the rabbi.
'Well,' answered the other, 'I shall tell you.
What you don't get by your own work, you don't have.'

"What you don't get by your own work, you don't have."'
