Seven types of people relating to Dhamma practice (and skillful and unskillful qualities):

1. An individual sinks down once and stays sunk

2. The individual, on coming to the surface, sinks down again

3. The individual, on coming to the surface, stays there

4. The individual, on coming to the surface, opens his eyes and looks around

5. The individual, on coming to the surface, heads across

6. The individual, on coming to the surface, gains a foothold

7. The individual, on coming to the surface, crosses over, reaches the far shore, stands on high ground

(from Majjhima Nikaya 70, Anguttara Nikaya 7.15)
