Daily Quote
A voice is heard on high, lamentation, bitter weeping; Rachel weeping for her children, she refuses to be comforted for her children, for they are not. So says the L-rd: Refrain your voice from weeping and your eyes from tears, for there is reward for your work, says the L-rd, and they shall come back from the land of the enemy...
  –Jeremiah 31:14-15
