"Indeed it is the combination of wisdom and Innocence that creates Virtue. The person who is wise as a serpent can sustain the most terrible attacks and still continue to flourish as a disciple of Christ. The person who is innocent refuses to retaliate against those who make the attacks.
Unless wisdom is tempered by innocence, one attack provokes another, and conflict continues without end.
Be careful never to bear a grudge against anyone who does you wrong".
--St. John Chrysostom
