Remember my affliction and my misery, wormwood and gall. זְכָר עָנְיִי וּמְרוּדִי לַעֲנָה וָרֹאשׁ:

Song of Songs:

Until the sun spreads and the shadows flee, I will go to the mountain of myrrh and to the hill of frankincense.

ועַד שֶׁיָּפוּחַ הַיּוֹם וְנָסוּ הַצְּלָלִים אֵלֶךְ לִי אֶל הַר הַמּוֹר וְאֶל גִּבְעַת הַלְּבוֹנָה:

Hayom Yom

After my father pared his nails, he would place a small piece of wood among them before burning them.
In terms of scholarship and aptitude the Chassid Reb Elyeh Abeler was a simple man. Once, when he came into yechidus, my grandfather said to him: "Elyeh, I envy you. You travel to various fairs, you meet many people. Sometimes, in the middle of a business transaction, you get into a warm discussion about a Jewish saying, a saying from the Ein Yakov etc., and you arouse the other fellow's interest in studying nigleh (Talmud, halacha etc.) and Chassidus. This causes joy On High, and the A-lmighty rewards such "trade" with the blessings of children, health and sustenance; the larger the fair the more work there is and the greater is the livelihood earned."
