February 12

Do you ever notice how one word gives rise to a whole series of other words, each word to a series of thoughts; a series of thoughts turns into a series of beginnings, and deeds both good and evil? He who speaks about empty things has emptiness in his head and heart, emptiness also in his life….He who speaks about good things becomes more and more enflamed towards the good and enriches himself by it.

~St Theophan the Recluse
