When I looked [1], I found that this quotation is attributed to either St. Theophan the Recluse [2] [3] (from the same assemblage of quotations) or St. John Chrysostom [4] [5] (these two also appearing to be from another consistent assemblage of quotations). I can't find the text from which this quotation comes. Any ideas? —magda (talk) 12:18, May 19, 2006 (CDT)
