After anger, there is hope


"Eichah 5:22 says, 'For if You have been disgusted with us, You have been very angry with us.'

"R' Shimon ben Lakish explained: For disgust there is no hope, but for anger there is hope. One who is angry will eventually be appeased."

(Eichah Rabbah 5:22; see Eitz Yosef for an explanation of how this fits the sentence from Eichah)
