Wisdom and Humility

Saint Mark Ascetic.jpg

“I have seen unlearned men who were truly humble, and they became wiser than the wise. Another unlearned man, upon hearing them praised, instead of imitating their humility, prided himself on being unlearned and so fell into arrogance.”        

–St. Mark the Ascetic (a.k.a. Marcus Eremita, Athenian-born Monk and Desert Father, Fifth Century)       

{On the Spiritual Law: Philokalia Vol. 1″, p. 115, text 79-80}
