A young monk complained to the great ascetic Abba Sisoes “Abba what should I do? I fell.” The elder replied “Get up!”
The monk then said “I got up and I fell again.” The elder replied “Get up again!”
The young monk asked “For how long should I get up when I fall?”
“Until your death.” replied Abba Sisoes.
