James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
Saint Chrysostom
  Charity is the scope of all God’s commands.  1
  Depart from the highway and transplant thyself in some enclosed ground; for it is hard for a tree that stands by the wayside to keep her fruit till it be ripe.  2
  It is a shame for a man to desire honour because of his ancestors, and not to deserve it by his own virtue.  3
  It is no such heinous matter to fall afflicted, as, being down, to lie dejected.  4
  Just as a moth gnaws a garment, so doth envy consume a man.  5
  The true Shekinah is man.  6
