“I began to fear more the terrible danger of pride if I did well than the disgrace if I did badly. There I was at a crossroad between fear and charity, not knowing which way was safe to take. If I spoke to any profit about humility I feared to be found lacking in it; if humility kept me silent I would be good for nothing. Neither course was safe; I had to take one or the other.” -St. Bernard of Clairvaux
