  1. “Now is the beginning of a new day. I have been given this day, to do with it what I will. I can waste it or use it for good; but what I do today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow, comes this day will be gone forever, leaving in its place something I have traded for it. I want it to be ‘gain not loss’; ‘good not evil’; ‘success not failure’; in order that I shall not regret the price I have paid for it.” .., by Tora Institute, LLC
