“It is possible for all men to study Torah and practice the mitzvot.
The mitzvot are practical actions that can be carried out in a definite time and place.
And this, in turn, fills all that is lacking in a person.
Even when one is idle, walking in the field or whatever, the mind and heart are occupied with something or other.
This can be connected with Torah and things of the spirit, or it can be a surrender to temptation.”
–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
