One who rejoices at another’s hurt is an enemy of all

When your enemy falls,
do not rejoice.
When your enemy stumbles,
do not be glad.

Your glee will corrupt you,
your ego will trick you into thinking
that you are different from him.
You will excuse your evil,
and your fate will be as hers.

One who rejoices at another’s hurt
is an enemy of all.”

Wisdom of the Jewish Sages: A Modern Reading of Pirke Avot by Rabbi Rami Shapiro
