16079Isaac the Syrian
- Sep 10, 2009The fruits of the inner man begin only with the shedding of tears. When you reach the place of tears, then know that your spirit has come out from the prison of this world and has set its foot upon the path that leads to the new age. Your spirit begins at this moment to breathe the wonderful air which is there, and it starts to shed tears.
Isaac the Syrian
As quoted by
John Climacus in "The Ladder of Divine Ascent"
