Wisdom from the Holy Fathers
A cenobetic monk said: "A person who is respectful fears God. One who fears God is also humble. God watches over the humble. Only the humble person is logical. The arrogant person is illogical."
And, "He who does not care for his soul either becomes brutal, turns into a beast, or is filled with self-delusion."
On Discernment of Thought
