Rabbi Yochanan ben Zakkai said to his disciples: “Consider well the good that one should always seek.” Rabbi Eliezer said: ‘A kindly eye.’ Rabbi Joshua said: ‘A good friend.’ Rabbi Yosei said: ‘A good neighbor.’ Rabbi Shimon said: ‘Foresight.’ Rabbi Elazar said: ‘A good heart.’ Then he said to them: “I prefer the words of Rabbi Elazar ben Arach to yours, because his words include yours as well.”
