What is hateful to thyself do not do to another. This is the whole Law, the rest is Commentary.
~ in Babylonian Talmud
The more flesh the more worms.
The more possessions, the more worry.
The more wives, the more witchcraft.
The more maidservants, the more unchastity.
The more slaves, the more robbery.
~ quoted in The Living Talmud, edited by Judah Holdin
