Sayings of the Desert Fathers


أربعة أمور يتحرك بها الغضب في الإنسان:
الأخذ والعطاء – إتمام الهوى – محبته في
أن يُعلِّم غيره – ظنه في نفسه أنه عاقل.
القوى القديس الأنبا موسي

Four things that move a person to anger: giving and taking – the need in fulfilling the heart's desires – love of teaching – and being wise in his own eyes.

St. Moses the Strong
