“In the final analysis, there is no qualitative difference between a person who sins because he gave in to the distractions of the street and a scholar who does not increase his study schedule or pray with concentrated inner intention.
Neither is prepared to struggle, and neither steps beyond his limitations.”
–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
