"Humility does not disturb or disquiet, however great it may be; it comes with peace, delight and calm. . . .The pain of genuine humility doesn't agitate or afflict the soul; rather, this humility expands it and enables it to serve God more."
Teresa of Avila (1515-1582), Spanish nun, writer and saint
The Way of Perfection (1566), Chapter 39, Section 2
