“If you possess love. . .”

“If you possess love, you feel no jealousy or envy. You are not boastful, carried away by reckless pride. Nor do you put on airs with anyone. Nor do you act shamefully toward your fellow beings. You seek not simply what is to your own advantage, but what also benefits your fellow beings. You are not quickly provoked by those who are angry with you.” -St Nikitas
