Seven Kinds of Perfection

"Willingly without honor,
Willingly unfeared,
Willingly alone,
Willingly quiet,
Willingly below,
Willingly high,
Willingly common to all."

--Mechthild of Magdeburg (ca. 1212-ca. 1282), Fliessende Licht der Gottheit, lib. 2, cap. 12, trans. Frank Tobin (New York: Paulist Press, 1998), p. 79.
