It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

So Long Harry

Arguably the greatest voice in sports, Harry Kalas, passed away at the age of 73. He was the voice of summer, the voice of my youth, doing play by play for the Phillies as long as I can remember, not to mention all those NFL films. We used to bring a radio to the games so we could hear him make the calls. He was a class act all the way around, a Philly institution.

I'm glad he was able to call one last Phillies World Series Championship before he moved on. No doubt it was as special to him as the first one in 1980.

Harry, thanks for all the work, your love of the team, and the game. No one will replace you.
