Sayings of the Desert Fathers


إحرص على نقاوة أفكارك ولا تقبل فكر
يأتى إليك، وإن وصل إليك فكر خاطئ،
إحذر من التمادى فيه. قداسة البابا شنوده الثالث

Keep watch over the purity of your thoughts. Do not accept any thought that comes to you, and if you come across an evil thought, watch from pursuing it.

-H.H. Pope Shenouda III
