"I've found that there is always some beauty left — in nature, sunshine, freedom, in yourself; these can all help you. Look at these things, then you find yourself again, and God, and then you regain your balance. A person who's happy will make others happy; a person who has courage and faith will never die in misery!" - Anne Frank

“There are stars whose radiance is visible on Earth though they have long been extinct. There are people whose brilliance continues to light the world even though they are no longer among the living. These lights are particularly bright when the night is dark. They light the way for humankind.” ― Hannah Senesh

"Everyone must have two pockets, with a note in each pocket, so that he or she can reach into the one or the other, depending on the need.

When feeling lowly and depressed, discouraged or disconsolate, one should reach into the right pocket, and, there, find the words: "For my sake was the world created."

But when feeling high and mighty one should reach into the left pocket, and find the words: "I am but dust and ashes"
Simcha Bunim of Peshischa as written in "Tales of the Hasidim: Later Masters" by Martin Buber.

#TBT - today in Jewish history - 1949: “The Goldbergs," the first television show about a Jewish family, premiered on CBS. The show was based on the hit radio program that had begun back in 1929 called "The Rise of the Goldbergs." Both shows starred Gertrude Berg in the lead as the Jewish mother, Molly Goldberg. The show took place in Brooklyn and began with Molly calling out the window to her neighbor with the signature line “Yoo hoo Mrs. Bloom.” (This Day, January 10, In Jewish History by Mitchell A. Levin)
