Vladimir Lossky (1903-1958)

 

“The man who is governed by his nature and acts in the strength of his natural qualities, of his ‘character’, is the least personal.  He sets himself up as an individual, proprietor of his own nature, which he pits against the natures of others and regards as his ‘me’, thereby confusing person and nature.”   ~ The Mystical Theology of the Eastern Church
