Quote of the Week - St. John of Damascus

"In imitation of the method of the bee, I shall make my composition from those things which are conformable with the truth and from our enemies themselves gather the fruit of salvation. But I shall reject all that is worthless and falsely labeled as knowledge." -- St. John the Damascene

To live a good life, we need to accept only facts that we know are true -- even if they originate from our enemies.

On the other hand, we also need to reject beliefs that we know are false -- even if they originate from our closest friends.
