• Orthodox is not secular conferences, it is being at services.
• Orthodox is not philosophy and speculation, but wearing out your prayerbook.
• Orthodox is not the university, it is the monastery.
• Orthodox is not observing university curriculum, it is observing the Church calendar.
(When anyone claims that 'the calendar is not important', we must remember: that was not the attitude of the saints. What the intellectuals mean is that the calendar is not important to them, and are thereby saying that the saints are not important to them).
