brachot 16

how many things can a man (and it is a man) balance in his mind at one time?
- in his own time?

(but did anyone ask the virgin bride what sinking thoughts were on her mind on her wedding night?)

(the talmud discusses about the concentration needed to say the shema. can it be said while working, up a tree, on a wall, on the way to his wedding night? for english translation of this talmud page see here)
