“Humility is unnamed grace of soul. Only they who have come to know humility from their personal experience know its name. It is ineffable treasure, a name of God and a gift of God. Learn, He says, not from angels, not from man, not from books, but from Me, i.e. from My dwelling in you, illumination and action among you, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and in mind, and you will find rest for your souls from the war and relief in the fighting with thoughts (Matt. 11:29).” (Saint John of the Ladder)
