Mordecai learned [of the plot to kill King Ahaseuerus] and told it to Queen Esther, and Esther reported it to the king in Mordecai's nameBased on this, the Talmud teaches: One who says something in the name of someone else, brings redemption to the world. God is the true source of all redemption, great and small. When we quote someone, we are attributing what we have to someone else – and this true humility. Someone who can do such a thing understands their own limits and, explains the Maharal, is ready to accept that salvation comes from God. One who says something in the name of someone else, brings redemption to the world.
