Proverbs 31:

She opens her mouth with wisdom, and instruction of kindness is on her tongue.

פִּיהָ פָּתְחָה בְחָכְמָה וְתוֹרַת חֶסֶד עַל לְשׁוֹנָהּ:

Psalm 119:

Rivulets of water ran down from my eyes because they did not keep Your Torah.

פַּלְגֵי מַיִם יָרְדוּ עֵינָי עַל לֹא שָׁמְרוּ תוֹרָתֶךָ

Hayom Yom:

Even ordinary Chassidim were lucid in their knowledge of Tanach. They had a customary procedure: After davening Shacharit they studied Mishna; then while folding tallit and tefillin they would recite a certain set portion of Tanach, so apportioned that they concluded Tanach every three months.


R. Moshe Meisels related: The (Alter) Rebbe taught us that the alef of Chassidus is to use our natural traits and instincts in avoda. The beginning of avoda is to employ the natural characteristics of man's powers, for example the natural dominion of mind over heart.
