Some advice to hermits, from a book

Keep your body and your clothes clean; take every precaution against lice, which are a hindrance to the spiritual life.

We must be convinced that every man is subject to some imperfection, but the man whose imperfection is most harmful of all is the one who resents others' imperfections and is unable to bear with them serenely.
