Saying of the Day

One day when [Abba John the Dwarf] was sitting in front of the church, the brethren were consulting him about their thoughts. One of te old men who aw it became a prey for jealousy and said to him, "John, your vessel is full of poison."

Abba John said to him, "That is very true, abba; and you have said that when you only see the outside, but if you were able to see the inside, too, what would you say then?"

Sayings. John the Dwarf. 8
