Abba Ammun of Raithu asked Abba Sisoes, “When I read the scriptures, my mind wants to compose an elegant explanation of it, so that I have it ready when someone asks me.” The elder answered, “There is no need for that, but cultivate rather a pure mind; this will both silence your anxiety and give you the words to say.”

– Abba Sisoes
