"Do you wish to be great? Then begin from what is slightest. Do you plan to construct a high and mighty building? Then think first about the foundation of humility.
"When people plan to erect a lofty and large building, they make the foundations all the deeper. But those who lay the foundation are forced to descend into the depths."
-- Sermon 69, 2
Prayer. Lord, my God, how great you are, and yet you make your home in the humble of heart! It is you who lift up the downtrodden, and you who are their grandeur.
-- Confessions 11, 31
