“Someone brought a hermit who was a leper some money and said, ‘Take this to spend, for you are old and ill.’ He replied, ‘Are you going to take me away from Him who has fed me for sixty years? I have been ill all that time, and have needed nothing because God has fed me and given me what I need.’ He would not accept it.”

– Sayings of the Desert Fathers
