When his work is done, his aim is fulfilled, his troops will feel they did it themselves. ~Lao Tzu When boasting ends, there dignity begins. ~Edward Young The more vanity a person has the less sympathy he has for others, for all his attention is given to his own satisfaction, and he is blind toward others. ~Hazrat Inayat Khan Pride, perceiving humility honorable, often borrows her cloak. ~Thomas Fuller The firecracker cries aloud, “I am the light!” and is finished in a moment. The diamond, shining its light constantly, never says a word about its light. ~Hazrat Inayat Khan We’d like to be humble…but what if no one notices? ~John Ortberg Let us be a little humble; let us think that the truth may not perhaps be entirely with us. ~Jawaharlal Nehru Life is a long lesson in humility. ~James M. Barrie
