Grades of holy ones?

Another thought for the day: From Rumi, "Masnavi" (Spiritual Couplets), Book II,, Story II, last sentence.

The numerous grades of prophets and saints and of holy men are ordained, as so many curtains of the light of God, to tone down its brilliance, and make it visible to all grades of human sight.

Kierkegaard is above my grade level!
