If I am not for myself, who is for me?

For some reason I am very pleased by the past few hours. First, I spent time adding details to the game I had to make for my CS106A, which feels decently techie and geeky. Then, I got out my sewing kit (yup, have one) and sewed two buttons back onto the elbow-length white gloves I am going to wear to the Viennese Ball next week. For some reason this contrast between technical academia and domesticality amused me. I even made it house meeting tonight, and my linguistics homework has been extended until Monday, so I’m not under as much pressure. I might even drop by games night tomorrow after dance, although I have a meeting at 9 on Friday to discuss declaring a linguistics major. All in all I’m actually fairly on top of my life, and functioned pretty well today, all things considered.

    So I was doing my IHUM reading, and…

    If I am not for me, who will be?
    If I am for myself alone, what am I?
    And if not now, when?

    So is that what it’s from (the Mishnah, translated differently I guess)?

    Maybe. I know it as

    So effectively the same thing. Didn’t know what it was from, though.
