A Quote by St. Basil the Great on god, christianity, love, education, freedom, truth, joy, peace, and light

The love of God is not taught.  No one has taught us to enjoy the light or to be attached to life more than anything else.  And no one has taught us to love the two people who brought us into the world and educated us.  Which is all the more reason to believe that we did not learn to love God as a result of outside instruction.  In the very nature of every human being has been sown the seed of the ability to love.  You and I ought to welcome this seed, cultivate it carefully, nourish it attentively and foster its growth by going to the school of God's commandments with help of His grace.

St. Basil the Great

Since We have created you all from one same substance it is incumbent on you to be even as one soul, to walk with the same feet, eat with the same mouth and dwell in the same land, that from your inmost being, by your deeds and actions, the signs of oneness and the essence of detachment may be made manifest. Such is My counsel to you, O concourse of light!
