Difference between a woman and a man ( St. Barsanuphius of Optina )
A woman cannot live without faith. Either she lives for a period of time without faith and then returns to faith in God, or she quickly begins to go to pieces.
It is another matter for a man, it is possible for him to live without faith. He hardens completely, and becomes a pillar of salt, and so he lives, stiff and cold. But a woman cannot live like this.
