Explore the value of Humility
Count no day lost in which you waited your turn, took only your share and sought advantage over no one.
Mark L. Mika
Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation.
Augustine of Hippo
Sir Thomas Moore
Harry S. Truman
No one should be ashamed to admit they are wrong, which is but saying, in other words, that they are wiser today than they were yesterday.
Nothing is more deceitful than the appearance of humility. It is often only carelessness of opinion, and sometimes an indirect boast.
If I could I would always work in silence and obscurity, and let my efforts be known by their results.

So I never pick up hitch-hikers as a rule. I don't know what moved me to do so today. I was heading from North Platte to Brady and he was just outside of North Platte. He jumped in and said "thanks for stopping". I said no problem, I'm going to Brady about 23 miles up the road, and I’ll take you that far. ...

Im thankful for the article.Really looking forward to read more. Fantastic. Carmolli
I must remember that Humility is not humiliation. Humility shows my my important part and place i the Universe. Humiliation is degrading and makes one person greater than another in a way that tears away the dignity of that person. Humility creates a sense of self worth in that it gives something to fulfill the potential of and then grow beyond. Peace, Friends to You.

Humility is having a proper estimation of oneself.
Bruce Willingham, Warner Robins, Ga
"Perpetual quietness of heart. It is to have no trouble. It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore; to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me.
"It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or despised, it is to have a blessed home in myself where I can go in and shut the door and pray to my Father in secret and be at peace, as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and about is seeming trouble. "

I can't find a hero for humilty. Can somebody please help me?
Humility is focusing on the needs of others.
Bruce Willingham, Warner Robins
I always tell my daughter that the most important quality to find in a future spouse is that of humility. I believe everything positive and good comes from this one quality. People who posess humility have the world view that life is not about them. They tend to live outside themselves , quietly being, loving and giving, not trying to feed their own egoes but rather filled with self love which is shared with others .
Humility for me is a sense of acceptance and peace within yourself. Humbling yourself can be one of the most difficult things to do in life...but once practiced it can bring you a sense of peace you never felt before and can open yourself up to never ending possibilities.
