Rabbi Zelig Reuven Bengis was once asked the following question: My daughter was given two match proposals. Both seem roughly equal. One young man is Chassidic, the other a devotee of Mussar. Which should we pursue first?
Answered Rabbi Bengis: Both Chassidim and Mussarites are ‘madmen’. But the Chassidim are happy while the Mussarites are depressed. Better the joyous madman than the sad one!
