First words
Once you fully accept and understand that a child is a gift from G-d, the question of how to treat him or her becomes quite simple.
The child does not belong to you; he or she belongs to G-d.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 068814196X, Hardcover)

A wise man taught in Brooklyn for 44 years, influencing the lives of thousands and receiving accolades from heads of state. Little known outside of Jewish circles, the Rebbe, as Menachem Mendel Schneerson is lovingly known, was a fount of spiritual strength and good sense. Toward a Meaningful Life is an adaptation of his teachings that convey his strong message of love, productivity, education, and virtue, all with the grace of a good and loving God. This is the type of spiritual wisdom that can be turned to again and again.

Schneerson, the head of the Lubavitcher movement for forty four years, applies age-old truths to everyday life.
