Abba John Colov said:
`The building can`t be made starting it from the roof then going downward. It must be built from the foundation going upwards.
They asked him what he understood by foundation and he said:
`The foundation is our neighbor when we seek his benefit and gain that, since on it are based all of Christ`s commandments.`
