He Who Grieves Sorely…

He, who grieves sorely in his heart when dishonored or offended by others, ought to
know from this that he bears within himself the ancient serpent. If he will bear the
offense in silence, or will answer the one offending him with deep humility, then he has
thereby weakened and crushed this serpent. St. Simeon the New Theologian.
