Thoughtful Thursday

>> Thursday, January 19, 2012

So last week for Thoughtful Thursday it was all about pride but now it's time for some humility. More good reminders for me.

A sarcastic person has a superiority complex that can be cured only by the honesty of humility.
~Lawrence G. Lovasik


Affliction is the wholesome soil of virtue, where patience, honor, sweet humility, and calm fortitude, take root and strongly flourish.
~David Mallet

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.
~Saint Augustine

Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility.
~Saint Augustine

Humility is like underwear, essential, but indecent if it shows.
~Helen Nielsen

To become truly great, one has to stand with people, not above them.
~Charles de Montesquieu

I claim to be a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have humility enough to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.
~Mahatma Gandhi

One may be humble out of pride.
~Michel de Montaigne
