In this is my life and breath.

Living in solitude,
I occupy myself with searching
the spiritual writings: above all I
search the Lord’s commandments and their
commentaries, and the Apostolic traditions;
then the Lives and Instructions of the Holy Fathers.
I reflect on all this, and whatever I find after
reflection to be God-pleasing and useful
for my soul, I copy out for myself.
In this is my life and breath.

~St Nilus of Sora
