The quotes below are from the Prologue of Ochrid
"Many people, out of ignorance, exert themselves to avoid suffering in old age, and terminal illness, rather than to avoid the pains of hell in the life that follows old age and death.
There was an unmarried miser who, from year to year, strove to acquire for himself superfluous riches. When he was asked the point of so much toil and acquisition of goods, which were too much for his lifetime, he replied: "I’m gathering them for my old age. My goods will tend and feed me in old age and sickness.
In old age, a serious and long lasting illness fell upon him. He spent and distributed the money he had saved to doctors to heal him, and to servants to look after him and feed him, but the money ran out and the illness continued. His doctors and servants left him, and he fell into despair. His neighbors brought him bread until he died, and he was buried at public expense.
