Basil the Great Quote – “True prudence is the knowledge of what to do…”

True prudence is the knowledge of what to do and what not to do. One who possesses it never refrains from virtuous works and is never pierced by the deadly arrow of vice. Thus, he who understands words of prudence knows the difference between what is insidious, structured for deception and what reminds us quietly about the best way to live life.

Basil the Great (329 – 379)
