Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor loss of composure. Where there is poverty borne with joy, there is neither grasping nor hoarding. Where there is quiet and meditation, there is neither worry nor dissipation. Where there is the fear of the Lord to guard the gateway, there the Enemy can get no hold for an entry. Where there is mercy and discernment, there is neither luxury nor a hardened heart.
— St. Francis of Assisi
