These are a collection of quotes that are of interest to Orthodox Christians. These quotes were from two collections—one was from a (now defunct) mailing list in which Steven Mojsovki would occasionally post a quote that other members might like to see; the other source came from a huge effort by Keith Wilkerson to post a daily quote to various Orthodox usenet and discussion groups (of which this is but a small sample).
The quotes come from various sources, including Scripture, patristics, various Orthodox religious and secular writers, and some are from non-Orthodox sources.
From St. Mark the Ascetic (The Philokalia Vol. 1; Faber and Faber pg. 125):
"... the kingdom of heaven is not a reward for works, but a gift of grace prepared by the Master for His faithful servants. A bond-servant does not demand his freedom as a reward; but he gives satisfaction as one who is in debt, and he receives freedom as a gift."
