comment Does Judaism endorse guilt?
@DoubleAA "Serve G-d with fear" doesn't necessarily imply there are moments in which we're not supposed to be joyful. AFAIK, we should be both at the same time. It's not about crying / laughing, it's about sense of fear / joy.

comment Attaching something by way of a hook on Shabbos — problem of binyan (building)?
I didn't get the scenario. Can you add a picture\sketch? These subjects were on the daf-yomi just a couple of weeks ago (and I learned them yesterday...)

@DoubleAA OK. I wasn't aware of it. Thanks for clarifying.

@nikmasi 1) running after mitzvot - זריזין מקדימין למצוות- is certainly positive; 2) being a prophet is something one can achieve only after having Ruach HaKodesh, which is achieved only after trailing the whole messilat yesharim, as mentioned by the Ramcahl, that cites the known Braitah (Avoda Zara 20b): Therefore said R Pinchas Ben Yair: Torah brings Zehirut, Zehirut brings Zerizut ... Kedusha brings Ruach HaKodesh. This isn't only a mere positive character trait, its devine evidence of having an oustanding character.

@nikmasi it seems that Gershon Gold has given a makor: Rashi on Bereshit 30:21. She prayed for it the prayer was apparantly accepted.

@DoubleAA in second thought, even when not in end of blessings, if the last verse includes Shem Hashem, it might also be problematic.
