Sunday’s Spark of Mussar

Rav Yosef Yozel Hurwitz, the Alter of Novhardok

A person who uses his mental ability solely for worldly pursuits instead of for understanding the true Heavenly light is like a villager who finds a magniicent sculpture and uses it as a scarecrow.

From Sparks of Mussar by R Chaim Ephraim Zaitchik

Note:  The Alter was a very successful businessman, as well as the founder of Novhardok network of yeshivos.
