Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe, the last of the great Mussar personalities wrote:
"It is incumbent on a person to review constantly the book Mesilat Yesharim. (Rav Chaim Volozhiner zt'l said to his chief disciple R.Zundel Salanter that he should take the Mesilat Yesharim as his road map for life.)
At first the book may seem simple but really the more a person matures and grows in understanding , the more he will see wonders in depth and breadth in the Mesilat Yesharim Rabbi Yerucham zt'l was accustomed to say that the Mesilat Yesharim is the summation of all the kaballa books of the Ramchal and is therefore also the preparation gate to learning the inner chambers of the Torah... as one studies and reviews this book carefully, slowly slowly he will find the inner meanings in his (the Ramchal's) words - and in ourselves. (from beginning of Alei Shur vol.1 by Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe)
