"Humility of heart is a virtue which is at the same time both difficult and easy. It involves hardship because it is totally opposed to pride, which is always urging us to exalt ourselves; it is easy because we do not have to look very far to find grounds for it; we find them- and how abundantly- in ourselves, in our own misery. However, it does not suffice to be wretched in order to be humble- only he is humble who sincerely acknowledges his own unworthiness and acts accordingly…" Divine Intimacy
