‘Do not despair of retribution’ (even if a sharp sword rests upon your neck) (Pirkei Avot Mishna 7)

In the Warsaw Ghetto there was a slogan painted on the wall, “There is no despair in the world at all.” This conviction has accompanied the Jewish people throughout the generations, the people who have never surrendered from the time they entered the arena of history to this very day. (Rav Lau on Pirkei Avot).
