All the World's a Stage

Athanasius of holy memory asked Pambo to come down from the desert to Alexandria. When Pambo arrived, he saw a woman that was an actress, and he wept.

The bystanders asked him why he wept.

He said, "Two things grieved me. The first was her condemnation; the second, that I take less trouble pleasing God than she takes about pleasing the worst of mankind."
