Listening to Tradition, William of St. Thierry

Yet, brethren, let all exaltation be far from the opinion you have of yourselves, from your littleness and lowliness, from one your mouths. For exalted thoughts are death and it is easy for one who sees himself perched on high to grow dizzy and be in mortal danger. Give another name to your profession, inscribe your work with another title.
