Saint Basil

This is a collection of quotes about food from Saint Basil.

First and foremost the monk should own nothing in


“First and foremost, the monk should own nothing in this world, but he should have as his possessions solitude of the body, modesty of bearing, a modulated tone of voice, and a well-ordered manner of speech. He should be without anxiety as to his food and drink, and should eat in silence.”
