Monday's Meditation

"Coming to a stop in the race was not safe for him. Why? Because no Good has a limit in its own nature but is limited by the presence of its opposite, as life is limited by death and light by darkness. And every good thing generally ends with all those things which are perceived to be contrary to the good.
Just as the end of life is the beginning of death, so also stopping the race of virtue marks the beginning of the race of evil."
- Gregory of Nyssa, The Life of Moses
