Who feeds not wolves

As long as we remain sheep, we overcome. Even though we may be surrounded by a thousand wolves, we overcome and are victorious. But as soon as we are wolves, we are beaten: for then we lose the support from the Shepherd who feeds not wolves, but only sheep.

~ St. John Chrysostom, Homily 33 on Matthew (trans. Thomas Merton)
