Pirkei Avot 3:2 - "Pray for the welfare of the government. Were it not for the fear it, man would swallow his fellow alive."
Pirkei Avot 1:3: "Be as servants to the master not in order to receive an award...and may the fear of Heaven be upon you."
Pirkei Avot 1:10 - "Love work, hate lordship, and do not become familiar with the government."
Pirkei Avot 1:6 - "Make for yourself a mentor, acquire for yourself a friend, and judge every person as meritorious."
Pirkei Avot 5:15 - "There are four temperaments among those who sit before the sages. The sponge - because it absorbs everything. The funnel - because it lets in at (one end) and lets out (at the other). The strainer - because it lets the wine out and retains the sediment. The sieve - because it lets out the chaff and retains the fine flour."
Midday Wine 03:14
Pirkei Avot 3:13 - "[Late] morning sleep, midday wine, chatter of children, and sitting in the assembly houses of the unlearned remove a person from this world."
Pirkei Avot 2:4 - "Do not separate yourself from the community. Do not believe in yourself until the day of your death. Do you judge your fellow until you come to his place. Do not say something that cannot be heard, for in the end it will be heard. Do not say, "When I will be available I will study [Torah], lest you never become available."
Pirkei Avot 4:4 - "Be very, very humble in spirit, for the hope of man is worms."
Pirkei Avot 2:11 - "The evil eye, the evil inclination, and hatred of the creations remove a person from the world."

NYC-based Jazz Guitarist Amanda Monaco's latest album is music inspired by rabbinical texts from the 3rd century CE. A little bit jazz, a little bit metal, a little bit funky, with timeless lyrics in Hebrew and Aramaic.
