Pirkei Avos 2:9
“Rabbi Shimon says ‘One should consider the outcome of a deed.'”
“That was an amazing response you gave to his question!! How did you know that?”
“Before I spoke I went over my speech and thought of questions that people might ask. Since I know that I can fool myself, I actually envisioned people asking me these questions, so I had to make sure that I had good answers.”
The literal translation of the word “consider the outcome” (Hebrew “roeh es hanolad”) means “see the outcome”!!
