Know thyself

Yes, the language is a bit harsh to our modern ears.  But sometimes harsh is not only not bad, it’s necessary.  If you find it difficult, just let it tumble about in your brain for a bit.

I believe we shall never learn how to know ourselves except by endeavoring to know God, for, beholding His greatness we are struck by our own baseness, His purity shows our foulness , and by meditating on His humility we find how very far we are from being humble. — St. Teresa of Avila, The Interior Castle, The First Mansions Ch. 2
