Wisdom…


A human being who does not endure courageously the unpleasant burdens of temptations,
will never produce fruit worthy of the divine wine-press and eternal harvest, not even if one possesses all other virtues. For one is only perfected through zealously enduring both all the voluntary and involuntary afflictions.

St. Gregory Palamas
