Squeezing An Orange

Trying to squeeze meaning out of a single day is analogous to trying to squeeze a glass of orange juice from a single orange.

oh i see.

yeah i also saw the one u had about Holocaust survivors and the Rebbe ztl.

heres a story about the Rebbe:
"They had heard of the Sigheter Rav's ZTL 'wonder sons' who were only little children, ninety long years ago. It was said that 'Yoilish,' [R' Yoel Teitelbaum ZTL] the younger child, refrained from unnecessarily touching covered parts of his body, so he could always be prepared to study Torah. A visiting Rabbi asked the Sigheter Rav if it were so. 'Come,' said the Rav, leading the visitor to the bedroom where his three-year-old Yoel was fast asleep. He lifted his tzitzis-fringes over the child's head and tickled his ear. The sleeping boy slipped his sleeve over his fingers and raised his covered hand to scratch his itchy head"
its from here:
