YOUTH

A neglected youth is like an untilled land bringing forth many thorns from many quarters. Send forth then on them the fire of the Spirit to burn up unholy desires, and break up the fields, and make them ready for the reception of good seed. 

It is indeed a marvelous thing when temperance shines forth in youth, since he surely that is temperate in old age cannot have a great reward, having in perfection the security from his age. But what is wonderful is to enjoy a calm amid waves, and in a furnace not to be burnt, and in youth not to run wild. 

St. John Chrysostom
