Be zealous within your soul, not outwardly

Venerable John Climacus ~ The Ladder of Divine Ascent
Step 4 ~ On Obedience

¶ 82. Be zealous within your soul, without showing it in the least outwardly, either by visible sign or by word or by a hint. And you will only do this when you stop looking down on your neighbour. But if you are still inclined to do this, become like your brethren so that you do not differ from them simply in being conceited.
