"Dear Wormwood: Your patient has become humble; have you drawn his attention to the fact? Catch him at the moment when he is really humble and smuggle into his mind the gratifying reflection, 'I'm being humble.' And almost immediately, pride -- pride in it's own humility -- will appear.
"If he awakens to the danger and tries to smother this new form of pride, make him proud of his attempt and so on. The enemy wants to bring the man to a state of mind in which he could design the best cathedral in the world and know it to be the best, and rejoice in the fact without being any more or less or otherwise glad at having done it than he would be if it had been done by another.
"The enemies’ whole effort, therefore, will be to get the man's mind off the subject of his own value altogether. The enemy will also try to render real in the patient's mind the doctrine that they did not create themselves, that their talents were given them. The sooner the man turns his attention outward, the better the enemy is pleased.”
