"An Athonite elder said: A mind that dwells on everyday matters of life and vain things disperses the soul. One should turn inwardly, looking at the soul's uncultivated vineyard, weeding it of all evil thorns and planting virtues there instead. But be wary, for this type of work is not easy at all. It requires perseverance and much patience. One will be confronted with a multitude of difficulties. Various writings of the Fathers are very helpful, and in our days are available by the dozens. In them one can find anything his heart desires, and anything it needs. The Fathers will lead you on the right spiritual path, if only you read them with humility and prayer."
An Athonite Gerontikon [055]
