“A man obtains the fear of God if he has the remembrance of his unavoidable death and of the eternal torments that await sinners; if he tests himself every evening as to how he has spent the day, and every morning as to how he has spent the night, and if is not sharp in his relations with others.”

Abba Dorotheos of Gaza
