October 16

A person is humble when he knows that his very being is on loan to him.

…both God and the devil naturally impart their qualities to those who approach either of them: God bestows eternal life on those who love Him, while the devil, operating through temptations that are subject to our volition, causes the death of his followers.

~St Maximos the Confessor
