From "Sefer Hamitzvot in English," published by Sichos in English.
Daily Quote
"A man saw not his fellow, neither rose any from his place for three days" (the Plague of Darkness, Exodus 10:23). Indeed, there is no greater darkness than one in which "a man saw not his fellow" -- in which a person becomes oblivious to the needs of his fellow man. When that happens, a person becomes stymied in his personal development as well -- "neither rose any from his place."
  –Chassidic master Rabbi Yitzchak Meir of Ger (1789-1866)
