this week's proverb
דײַנע אויגן קענען דיר מאַכן די וועלט טונקל אָדער ליכטיק. אַזוי ווי דו קוקסט איר אָן, וועט זי דיר פאָרקומען, לאַכעדיק אָדער וויינענדיק

day'ne oygn kenen dir makhn di velt tunkl oder likhtik. Azoy vi du kukst af ir, vet zi dir forkumen, lakhedik oder veynendik

the proverb actually means
Your eyes can make the world dark or light. In the manner you look at it, that's the way it will appear, through laughter and tears

translated to Hebrew
העיניים שלך יכולים לעשות את העולם חשוך או מואר. לפי איך שאתה מסתכל עליו כך הוא מופיע לך, דרך צחוק או דמעות
