Sayings of The Holy Fathers:

"Believe that the dishonor and the reproaches from people are medicine which heals your pride and pray for those who reproach you as the true healers of your soul. Be assured that he who hates dishonor also hates humility, and he who avoids those who sadden him, turns away from meekness."

Abba Dorotheos

"When tested by some trial you should try to find out not why or through whom it came, but only how to endure it gratefully, without distress or rancor."

St.Mark the Ascetic.

"A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him saying: 'You are mad, you are not like us.'"

Abba Anthony of Egypt
