St. Isaac the Syrian, a Saying…

stisaac

Pursue the small consolation that is acquired in time of toil, that you may be accounted worthy of that great consolation which dispels the troubles of this life of sorrows for those who find it. Do not despise small things, lest you be deprived of great ones.

-St. Isaac the Syrian
From Homily 25, as preserved in Ascetical Homilies
