Apart from the Sayings of the Desert Fathers and Philokalia, what "sayings" types of Orthodox literature is out there? I'm thinking of texts that have short little stories, sayings or maxims, which may or may not be connected to the other statements around them. For an example of what I mean, from St. Mark the Monk...
It is a great virtue to accept patiently whatever comes and, as the Lord enjoins, to love a neighbor who hates you.
The sign of sincere love is to forgive wrongs done to us. It was with such love that the Lord loved the world.
We cannot with all our heart forgive someone who does us wrong unless we possess real knowledge. For this knowledge shows us that we deserve all we experience.
You will lose nothing of what you have renounced for the Lord’s sake. For in its own time it will return to you greatly multiplied.
