"Not every one can change his outward situation. It is usually our outlook, not our outward situation, that needs changing. It is not the place that sanctifies us, but by a holy life we can sanctify both the place and ourselves." - Archbishop Brianchaninov (1807-1867), The Arena: An Offering to Contemporary Monasticism.
Just a thought.
