One of the ancient fathers, we are told, had, before his conversion, lived with an ill woman, and some little time after, she accosted him as usual. Knowing how likely he was to fall into sin, he ran away with all his might, and she ran after him, crying, 'Wherefore runnest thou away? It is I.' He answered, 'I run away because I am not I. I am a new man.'
