Quote Question

I found a quote that is attributed to St Basil. It seems relatively popular, but no one sites the source of this quote other than "-St. Basil". In trying to find the source for it, I have found several different versions of the quote. Here is the version that seems to be the most common:

"As the pilot of a vessel is tried in the storm, the soldier in battle, and the hero in adversity; so is the Christian tried in temptation."

1. Is this an actual St. Basil quote?
2. What is the source?
