Advice to give oneself if one feels very small

‘In ‘Fear and Trembling’, [Soren Kierkegaard] says he had looked long and hard for the man of faith, then realised that the man of faith is a simple, ordinary fellow. “But he looks like a tax collector!” Kierkegaard exclaims. He lives a contented and unremarkable life. He goes to work, goes to church, loves and serves his family, and is completely hidden in humility.’

Dwight Longenecker in ‘St. Benedict and St. Therese’ (2002)
