“But what is a remedy: As they who drink the juice of the herb of Ethiopia, called ophiusa, imagine that they everywhere behold serpents and frightful objects; so they who have imbibed pride and ambition, and hatred think everything they see evil and blamable.  The former, to be healed, must drink palm wine, and I say to the latter, drink copiously of the sacred wine of charity, and it will deliver you from those noxious humors that engender rash judgement.  Charity is that sovereign remedy for all evils.”  St Francis de Sales

“Submerge yourself in the River of Charritt/the river of charity.”  St John of the Cross
