"Blessed is he who is not attached to anything transitory or corruptible. Blessed is the intellect that transcends all sensible objects and ceaselessly delights in divine beauty. If you make provision for the desires of the flesh (cf. Rom. 13:14) and bear a grudge against your neighbor on account of something transitory, you worship the creature instead of the Creator." St. Maximos the Confessor (First Century on Love nos. 18-20, The Philokalia Vol. 2 edited by Palmer, Sherrard and Ware; Faber and Faber pg. 55)



8o. A mole burrowing in the earth is blind and cannot see the stars; and he who does not trust God in temporal things will not trust Him in eternal things. REF:Saint Kosmas Aitolos +1779
