He who plants kindness gathers love  (Saint Basil Quotes) By nature, men desire the beautiful  (Saint Basil Quotes) I reckon silence more profitable than speech, for? in the words of the Preacher, ‘The words of wise men are heard in quiet’ (Eccles. 9:17)  (Saint Basil Quotes) It is impious to say that evil has its origin from God, because naught contrary is produced by the contrary. Life does not generate death, nor is darkness the beginning of light, nor is disease the maker of health, but in the changes of conditions there are transitions from one condition to the contrary  (Saint Basil Quotes) First and foremost, the monk should own nothing in this world, but he should have as his possessions solitude of the body, modesty of bearing, a modulated tone of voice, and a well-ordered manner of speech. He should be without anxiety as to his food and drink, and should eat in silence  (Saint Basil Quotes) As we were baptized, so we profess our belief. As we profess our belief, so also we offer praise. As then baptism has been given us by the Savior, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, so, in accordance with our baptism, we make the confession of the creed, and our doxology in accordance with our creed  (Saint Basil Quotes) There is nothing unpremeditated, nothing neglected by God. His unsleeping eye beholds all things  (Saint Basil Quotes) Therefore, let God inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the Word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth  (Saint Basil Quotes) For the hopes of men have been justly called waking dreams  (Saint Basil Quotes) Does not the gratitude of the dog put to shame any man who is ungrateful to his benefactors  (Saint Basil Quotes) No Christian ought to think of himself as his own master, but each should rather so think and act as though given by God to be slave to his like minded brethren (cf. I Cor. 9:19)?  (Saint Basil Quotes) Liberated from the error of pagan tradition through the benevolence and loving kindness of the good God with the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by the operation of the Holy Spirit, I was reared from the very beginning by Christian parents. From them I learned even in babyhood the Holy Scriptures which led me to a knowledge of the truth  (Saint Basil Quotes) We need not only read Sacred Scripture, but learn it as well and grow up in it. Realize that nothing is written in Scripture unnecessarily. Not to read Sacred Scripture is a great evil.  (Saint Basil Quotes) What is the benefit of fasting in our body while filling our souls with innumerable evils? He who does not play at dice, but spends his leisure otherwise, what nonsense does he not utter? What absurdities does he not listen to? Leisure without the fear of God is, for those who do not know how to use time, the teacher of wickedness  (Saint Basil Quotes) We men are easily prone to sins of thought. Therefore, He who has formed each heart individually, knowing that the impulse received from the intention constitutes the major element in sin, has ordained that purity in the ruling part of our soul be our primary concern  (Saint Basil Quotes) Every divine action begins from the Father, proceeds through the Son, and is completed in the Holy Spirit.  (Saint Basil Quotes) We should not think that we achieve success in preaching through our own devices, but we should rely entirely on God  (Saint Basil Quotes) Indulging in unrestrained and immoderate laughter is a sign of intemperance, of a want of control over one’s emotions, and of failure to repress the soul’s frivolity by a stern use of reason.  (Saint Basil Quotes) Drunkenness, the ruin of reason, the destruction of strength, premature old age, momentary death  (Saint Basil Quotes) Every evil is a sickness of soul, but virtue offers the cause of its health  (Saint Basil Quotes) They who sow courtesy reap friendship, and they who plant kindness gather love  (Saint Basil Quotes) Good masters teach good doctrine, but that taught by evil masters is wholly evil  (Saint Basil Quotes) Who is the covetous man? One for whom plenty is not enough  (Saint Basil Quotes) We should even go beyond doing what is required in order to avoid scandal  (Saint Basil Quotes) We often find comfort in telling what is painful in actual experience  (Saint Basil Quotes) If everyone would take only according to his needs and would leave the surplus to the needy, no one would be rich, no one poor, no one in misery  (Saint Basil Quotes) Lust hath these three companions: the first, blindness of understanding; the second, hardness of heart; the third, want of grace  (Saint Basil Quotes) You can see that a city is prosperous by the wealth of goods for sale in the market. Land too we call prosperous if it bears rich fruit. And so also the soul may be counted prosperous if it is full of good works of every kind  (Saint Basil Quotes) Science which is acquired unwillingly, soon disappears; that which is instilled into the mind in a pleasant and agreeable manner, is more lasting  (Saint Basil Quotes) Memory is the cabinet of imagination, the treasury of reason, the registry of conscience, and the council chamber of thought  (Saint Basil Quotes)
