“You can no longer be prideful after seeing and realizing your own sickness, which, it seems to you, if people could see your natural defects and unworthiness, they would immediately shame you and stone you so you would disappear from the human race so as not to pollute and damage the rest of humanity with your wickedness.”

The Watchful Mind, by a Monk on Mount Athos
