August 2

Impel your intellect continually to prayer and you will destroy the evil thoughts that beset your heart….

You will not find the rigors of the ascetic life hard to bear if you do all things with measure and by rule….

Control desire and you will dominate anger; for desire gives rise to anger.

~St Thalassios the Libyan
