The Rewards Of Staying

Regarding this post.

Rav Shimon Shkop was a student in Volozhin. When he knew that Rav Chaim Soloveitchik was going to give a shiur he left a little while before Rav Chaim came in so that he could continue learning privately.

One time he couldn't get out on time [he was dirt poor and his shoes didn't have laces so it was hard for him to walk quickly]. He stayed in order not to offend Rav Chaim. He liked the shiur so much he stayed for a year and a half and the entire WOLRD [I refer to the greatest world I know - the "yeshiva world". And I don't mean the website] benefited from a much greater Rav Shimon Shkop. 

Stay around - you might learn something:-).
