God does not crown those who abstain from evil out of necessity, but out of good intentions.
St. John the Chrysostom
The Knowledge of God
The more one advances in the knowledge of God, the more one feels his weakness.
St. Basil the Great
The Heart-Knowing God
He who wants to do something and cannot do it, it is as if he did it in front of the heart-knowing God. This applies to both good and bad things.
Saint Mark the Ascetic
