Daily Quote
There are two general approaches in healing a bodily illness: a) to heal the particular organ or faculty that is defective, sick or weak; b) to strengthen the healthy organs and faculties so that they may overcome and heal the sick organ or faculty. The parallel in illnesses of the soul are the two approaches in service of G-d--teshuvah (repentence), and good deeds.
  –Hayom Yom, Av 28
