Rav Avigdor Miller on Shemiras Einayim and Cement



How does a bachur counter the effects of pritzus and immorality in the street?


You must know that Hakadosh Baruch Hu has created cement on the sidewalk for a purpose. Not only to make it comfortable and clean to walk. The purpose of cement is you should gaze at it when you walk in the street. Study the cement on the sidewalk as you walk.

That’s a very important admonition you’re hearing now and it’s very beneficial. So as you walk in the street keep your eyes on the cement.

Now you know what cement is for? Cement is a wonderful product. No animals use cement. Birds don’t need cement. Lions don’t need cement. Only we need cement. Now you know why you need cement; that’s the purpose of it.
