* All kinds of asceticism should lead a person to a deep [[humility]]. If its do not lead - the path has chosen is incorrect.
* All deeds, all the good should lead to humility. And if its do not lead, its are poisoned by something. Without a humble and contrite heart, the most sublime and serious deeds are displeasing to God.
* All of us are in the "worst [[prelest]]" in the words of St. [[Symeon the New Theologian]], that is, in the dark, in error, in bondage to the devil. Only a few [of us] are released from this condition. How can a blind man lead the blind? And you teach everyone. Stop it!
