Reuven Malter: Your "quota" of Talmud?

Reb Saunders: A heart I need for a son. A soul I need for a son. Compassion and mercy I need from a son. And strength to carry pain I need from a son... self-pride, feeling of superiority, indifference, began to fade away. He learned through the wisdom and the pain of silence that a mind without a heart is nothing... My Daniel is a tzadik. And the world needs a righteous man.
