The Spiritual Man, book by H. H. Pope Shenouda III

13- The depth of personality


There are persons who are distinguished for their depth, others for shallowness.

A deep personality has depth in thinking, intelligence and understanding. Such person enjoys expansive intelligence which includes everything. If he discusses a subject, he looks into it from all angles, takes into account all consequences and reactions, as we have discussed this issue before here on in other sections. When he speaks, he speaks in depth...

Also, at work or post of responsibility, he handles everything in depth, like the Upright Joseph when he was in charge of supplies in Egypt, and like Jochembed the mother of Moses...

For example, the student who studies in depth, with understanding, concentration and a sharp mind, he does not forget. It is not important the number of hours of his study, but the depth of comprehension and memorizing.
