Seek your spiritual advisors with care – Mar Isaac the Syrian

Do not seek the advice of him who is not thy fellow in behaviour, though he be very prudent. A layman who has experienced things is more to be trusted than a sage who speaks on the basis of theoretical knowledge but without experience. [Mar Isaac the Syrian, Homily 39, Ascetical Homilies]
