If you do good, you must do it only for God. For this reason, you must pay no attention to the ingratitude of people.
Expect a reward not here, but from the Lord in heaven. If you expect it here, it will be in vain and you will endure deprivation.
Based on Saint Ambrose of Optina
Some monks preparing potatoes for meal.
