My Mashpia would always say "מען דארף אופהערן פארלאזן זיך אויף ניסים, מען דארף נעמען זאגן תהילים" (We have to stop relying on miracles, it's time to start saying Tehillim)

When I explained to my rebbe how I do minimal work and every so often sell my points for thousands of dollars and pay my rent, he asked me why everyone doesn't do it.
