St. Marcarius of Optina

“Strive so that inner humility agrees with your outward acts of humility. Consider yourself the worst and least of all, not just by saying it, but securing the thought in your heart; it will bring you peace.”

“Let the following be for you signs of humility or pride: the latter scorns everyone, reproaches them, and sees darkness in them, while the former sees only his own faults and does not dare to judge anyone.”
