"Poeman also said, 'Teach your heart to follow what your tongue is saying to others.' He also said, 'Men try to appear excellent in preaching but they are less excellent in practising what they preach.'"
. "He also said, 'A grumbler is not a Christian. Anyone who gives evil for evil is not a Christian. An irritable man is not a Christian.'" (I substituted 'Christian' for 'monk' - since most of us would excuse ourselves saying, "I'm not a monk".)
. "He also said, 'Evil cannot drive out evil. If anyone hurts you, do good to him and your good will destroy his evil.'" - Sayings of the Desert Fathers
