Miriam Neiger painting of Jerusalem
Rabbi Hillel said: “When you seek fame, it flees; when you do not add, you detract; when you do not learn, you earn destruction; when you make selfish use of the crown of Torah, you drive yourself out of the world.”

From “Chapters of the Fathers” in Gates of Prayer, Chaim Stern, ed. (New York: Central Conference of American Rabbis, 1975), 18.
