They used to say of Pambo that in the hour of his death he said to the holy men standing round, ‘From the time that I came into this solitude, and built my cell and lived in it, I do not remember having eaten anything I have not worked for. I have not said anything that I regretted saying. But still I go to the Lord, as one who has not yet made a beginning in the service of God.’

– Sayings of The Desert Fathers
