“Where there are sins, there is multiplicity, there are schisms, there are heresies, there are dissensions; but where there is virtue, there is solitariness and unity from which there was “one heart and one soul” in all the faithful [Acts 4:23]. That I might speak more clearly, the beginning of all evils is multiplicity, but the beginning of goods is limitation and withdrawal from the crowds into solitariness.”

-Origen, “Homilies 1-14 On Ezekiel”, pg 117
