Luke 12:15-21 And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.” Then He spoke a parable to them, saying: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded plentifully.

“[Seclusion] is a dangerous path. The passions grow in seclusion. It is better to be among the people. Out away from where people walk, the grass grows high; but where they walk, the path is bare.

The tree that the wind blows most against has the deepest and strongest roots: but that tree which grows undisturbed is more likely blown over.” ~ Venerable Joseph of Optina
