The quotations that I have given is from St. Isaac of Nineveh who lived in the 7th Century.
I was not aware that Mor Isahaq commemorate in the 5th Thubden is a different St. Isaac the Syrian. I know that we Oriental Orthodox (Copts for sure) venerate St. Isaac of Nineveh as a saint, along with the 'Assyrian Church of the East', Byzantine Orthodox and Roman Catholics.
Thanks you very much for pointing it out.
