The rose may not speak, yet smells beautifully. - St.Lucas the Doctor, Russian bishop of Symferopol, Crimea. As he says, "one may be always silent, neither talking, nor preaching. One may not have the gift of oration and yet may touch the hearts of people, deep inside. And though in silence, if our deeds manifest our kindness, the humble heart, the power of faith, the love, then we exhale the aroma of a rose. The rose does not speak but smells beautifully."
