Quality of Life

In the end, it’s not the years in your life that

count.  It’s the life in your years.

Abraham Lincoln

When Rabbi Schneur Zalman, the

first Chabad Rebbe, wished to bless

one of his disciples with a long life,

the students responded:

But not “peasant years” – they have

eyes but do not see, ears but do not

hear, they do not perceive G‑dliness.
