Be like a tire!

“We have to live with sincerity and without hypocrisy, self-righteousness, and pharisaism. The course of our life should resemble the course of a tire of a car. In a tire there is one point that touches the ground but the rest is raised above it. Let us have the same in our lives, by not being immersed completely on earthly material concerns.”

Saint Ambrosios of Optina
