The Importance of Knowledge Over Marriage

The following passage in Shadal's Vikuah al Hokhmat Hakaballah caught my eye. In it, Shadal explains why he got married at the late age of 28 and how he suppressed his bodily desires because his desire for knowledge was more important to him.   

I like this piece because I think it just sums up what Shadal was all about.
