Be dead in life, then you will not live in death – Mar Isaac the Syrian

Be dead in life, then you will not live in death. Let yourself die in integrity, but not live in guiltiness. Not only those who suffer death for the sake of the faith of Christ are martyrs, but also those who die for the sake of keeping his commandments.

[Mar Isaac the Syrian, Ascetical Homilies]
