Make the Effort
If you cannot labour with your body, at least make efforts in your mind. If you cannot fast for two days, fast at least till evening; if you cannot fast till evening, be careful not to overeat.
If you are not a peacemaker, at least do not be addicted to strife. If you cannot close the mouth of a man who is judging his brother, at least refrain from joining him in this. — St Isaac the Syrian
