Daily Quote
This all the nations of the world must know: only our bodies were sent into exile and subjugated to alien rule; our souls were not given over into captivity and foreign rule... In any matter affecting the Jewish religion, the Torah, and its mitzvot and customs, we are not subject to the dictates of any power
  –Rabbi Sholom DovBer of Lubavitche (quoted by his son, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn, at the Leningrad train station upon being sent to exile by the Soviet regime in 1927)
