Every day we must study Torah.
Each day you are new. Each morning you are born to life again. Do you not eat again each day as though you have never eaten before? Do you not thirst as though you have never drunk water?
Should we not study again each day to feed our minds and souls?
~ Based on the Talmud and the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneersohn
