Yesterday I posted about how I was reading a worthwhile book by Rebbetzin Feldbrand titled Essentials; A Commentary on Derech Hashem by Rav Moshe Chaim Luzzato, published by Israel Bookshop Publications.
Below is a short thought from the book on a verse in this past week's parsha attributed to Divrei Meir.
"Teven ein nisan le'avadecha u'levenim omrim lanu asu...we receive no straw (teven) and are told to make bricks" (Shemos 5:16)
Rrav Meir of Premishlan explains: "Even if we lack understanding (tevunah) to repent, our white hairs (levenim translates as both "bricks" and "white ones") exhort us to do so, for old age has arrived.)

I can't vouch for the veracity of the email.
