“Faith bears fear of perdition; fear of perdition bears abstinence from passion; this abstinence bears patience in tribulation; patience bears hope in God; hope in God bears indifference to worldly matters; this disregard for worldly things bears love for God, which is the highest of all the virtues.”
Nicodemos of the Holy Mountain, A Handbook of Spiritual Counsel
