“Altogether there are three kinds of things in the world; viz., good, bad, and indifferent.” He identifies virtue as the only true good and sin as the only true evil. “But those things are indifferent, which can be appropriated to either side according to the fancy or wish of their owner, as for instance riches…”

- Abba Theodore, recorded in the Conferences of St. John Cassian
