St. Tikhon of Zadonsk: Humility is Light.

“When pride retreats from a man, humility begins to dwell in him, and the more pride is diminished, so much more does humility grow. The one gives way to the other as its opposite. Darkness departs and light appears. Pride is darkness, but humility is light” – St. Tikhon of Zadonsk
