“Whoever decides by his own self-will to convict his brother or make some reprimand, clearly betrays and proves that he considered himself more prudent and virtuous than the person he blames, and that he is acting at the instigation of passions and deception and diabolical thoughts.”

– Ignatius Brianchaninov, The Arena
