Quotes from the Saints
The Four Hundred Chapters on Love:
13. The one who loves God cannot help but love also every man as himself even though he is displeased by the passions of those who are not yet purified. Thus when he sees their conversion and amendment, he rejoices with an unbounded and unspeakable joy.
18. Blessed is the man who is not attached to any corruptible or transitory thing.
23. The one who loves God surely loves his neighbor as well. Such a person cannot hold on to money but rather gives it out in God's fashion to each one who has need.
St. Maximus the Confessor
