From Fr. John of Kronstadt
- Remember that we are all weak, are very easily overcome by passions, and therefore be meek and patient to those who sin against you, knowing that you yourself often suffer from the same infirmity as your brother. Forgive those who trespass against you, so that God may forgive your trespasses incomparably greater than the trespasses of others against you. Always be calm, patient, kind-hearted, unsuspicious, and firm, and you will always triumph over your enemies.
