In the very last paragraph of the last chapter of Rabbi Steinsaltz’s book The Essential Talmud, Rabbi Steinsaltz writes:
“The work (the Talmud), a compilation of the endeavors of many generations that is edited with excessive precision and has been studied by tens of thousands of scholars, still remains a challenge.
Of the verse, ‘I have seen an end of every purpose,’ (Psalm 119) the sages said: ‘Everything has its boundaries, even Heaven and earth have their boundaries.
Only Torah has no bounds’ ”
From The Essential Talmud, p. 303 by Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
