What am I?

26 Jun

If I am not for myself, who will be for me? And when I am for myself, what am ‘I’? And if not now, when?
Hillel of Babylon

Hillel was a Jewish scholar and rough contemporary of Christ (died around 10 CE) who produced lots of good quotes. The progression from seeming solidity to emptiness reminds me of Nāgārjuna’s short verses.
