If, feeling [our way], we many times go astray, how much more by the words of people; for this reason great attention is needed, for the devil roars to devour us. As the many-eyed Cherubim, so ought the Christian to be, for evil has multiplied greatly, especially the fault of criticism, as bread and cheese. May God cleanse us and sanctify us unto His glory. --Elder Ephraim of Philotheou Mount Athos, "Counsels from the Holy Mountain"
