“If you want your sins to be ‘covered’ by the Lord (cf. Ps. 32:1), do not display your virtues to others. For whatever we do with our virtues, God will also do with our sins.”

–St. Mark the Ascetic (The Philokalia Vol. 1; Faber and Faber pg. 136)

“… the passion for popularity brings such injury upon those it masters that it shipwrecks faith itself. Our Lord confirms this when He says, ‘How can you have faith in Me when you receive honour from one another and do not seek for the honour that comes from the only God?’ (cf. Jn. 5:44).”

–St. Gregory Palamas (The Philokalia Vol. 4; Faber and Faber pg. 308)
