... It is related... how, on one occasion, he (Epiphanius) rebuked the ascetic zeal of St. Hilarion by a word of genuine evangelical spirit.  Hilarion, at a common meal, had refused to partake of some fish which was offered him, alleging that he never partook of anything that had life.  "And I," said Epiphanius, "since I commenced monastic life have never suffered any one to go to rest with any ground of offence on his mind against me."  "Thy rule, my father," replied Hilarion, "is better than mine." (A Dictionary of Christian Biography, Smith, 1880)
