“The one sole thing, in myself,
in which I glory,
is that I see in myself,
nothing, in which I can glory.”

but about the entrusting of ourselves to God.

produces trust in God
and from that trust,

“The most powerful weapon
to conquer the devil is humility.
For, as he does not know at all,
how to employ it,
neither does he know
how to defend himself from it.”

“There is more value
in a little study of humility
and, in a single act of it,
than in all the knowledge
in the world.”
