Renounce Everything

Cassian said that Syncleticus renounced the world, and divided his property among the poor. But he kept some for his own use, and so he showed that he was unwilling to accept either the poverty of those who renounce everything or the normal rule of the monasteries. Basil of blessed memory said to him, "You have stopped being a senator, but you have not become a monk."
