Chasing The Flashes In Your Mind

When you want to come up with new ideas in the Torah, you must concentrate on one particular subject. Take a verse or a subject and review it many times, hammering on the door until it is opened for you.

Sometimes a thought flashes through your mind and is then forgotten. You must be a man of valor, pursuing it until it is recaptured.

(Sichos HaRan #58)
