Saint Paisios of Mount Athos, Spiritual Counsels V: Passions and Virtues
"Spiritual nobility is spiritual superiority; it is sacrifice. A noble soul only makes demands of itself, never from others. Such a soul sacrifices itself for others without expecting anything in return. A noble soul forgets all that it gives, but remembers even the slightest thing given to it. Such a noble soul has philotimo, humility and simplicity, selflessness, honesty; it has it all. It also has the greatest joy and spiritual exaltation."
