Saint Basil the Great
Quotes


 

"Do not deny the name of Christ."

"For the hopes of men have been justly called waking dreams."

"He who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love."

"in no other thing do I find rest for my soul than in your progress and perfection in the commandments of Christ."

"Not the power to remember, but its very opposite, the power to forget, is a necessary condition for our existence."

"Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away hunger."

"A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love."

"Do not measure your loss by itself; if you do, it will seem intolerable; but if you will take all human affairs into account you will find that some comfort is to be derived from them."
