The Mishna says that whoever possesses the three characteristics of a good eye, a lowly spirit, and a humble soul is a disciple of our father Abraham; while one who has the three opposite characteristics is a disciple of the wicked Balaam (Avot 5:22).

(Arthur Green, Sefat Emet, The Language of Truth, The Jewish Publication Society, Philadelphia, 1998. 257)
