Daily Quote
G-d's words to Adam, "Where are you?" (Genesis 3:9) is G-d's call to every man, every moment of time. Where are you in the world? -- G-d calls -- What have you accomplished? You have been allotted a certain number of days, hours, and minutes in which to fulfill your mission in life. You have lived so many years and so many days, hours and minutes. Where are you? What have you achieved?
  –Rabbi Schneur Zalman of Liadi
