Daily Quote
The following two steps are most critical to healing of all ailments, both physical and spiritual: a) to know that one is ill, and desire most fervently to be cured of one's malady; b) to know that one can be cured, with hope and absolute trust that, with G-d's help, one will indeed be cured of his sickness.
  –Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch
