A Quote by Elder Ephraim of Philotheou on god, christianity, courage, hope, mindfulness, spirituality, self control, truth, and love

"Be careful with your mouth, but primarily with your mind; do not let evil thoughts start talking to you.  Do not let your mouth say words that could perhaps wound your brother.  Let your mouth put forth words which are fragrant: words of consolation, courage and hope.  It is a person's mouth that reveals his interior, inner man."
