The Teachings of the Saints - HUMILITY

"Have these three things always present to your mind: what you were, what you are, and what you will be" St Bernard

~~~

"We are only worth the price at which God values us. True merit must be weighed in his scales, for it is his judgment which alone can decide between real and counterfeit virtue" St John Berchmans

~~~

"A treasure is secure so long as it remains concealed: but when once disclosed and laid open to every bold invader, it is presently rifled; so virtue is safe as long as secret, but, if rashly exposed, it but too often evaporates into smoke. By humility and contempt of the world, the soul, like an eagle, soars on high, above all transitory things, and tramples on the backs of lions and dragons" St Syncletica
