Daily Quote
Our sages have said, "Words which come from the heart, enter the heart." It therefore follows that if you have failed to have a positive influence on your fellow, the fault lies not with him or her, but with yourself. Had you truly been sincere, your words would certainly have been effective.
  –Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch (Hayom Yom, Iyar 26)
