"Well, that's just how I am...I can't do anything about it."
I shall repeat again: Maintain the conviction that our disorderliness
is not natural to us, and do not listen to those who say, ‘It is no use talking
about it, because that is just how we are made, and you cannot do anything
about it.’ That is not how we are made,
and if we undertake to cure ourselves, then we will be able to do something
about it.”+ St. Theophan the Recluse (from The Spiritual Life and
How to be Attuned to It)
