A Mere Hair's Breadth

A person must guard himself against the slightest hint of a thought which is beyond the bounds of holiness. If you go off course by a hair's breadth, you can end up in a complete wilderness. Everybody knows that all his problems began through a mere hair's breadth. But a hair's breadth can also be the start of the ascent.

(Reb Nosson of Breslov)
