Humble quotes by Nehemiah Adams
#4. A certain joyful, though humble, confidence becomes us when we pray in the Mediator's name. It is due to Him; when we pray in His name it should be without wavering. Remember His merits, and how prevalent they must be. "Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace." #Quote by Nehemiah Adams
Humble quotes by George Saunders
#5. The best stories proceed from a mysterious truth-seeking impulse that narrative has when revised extensively; they are complex and baffling and ambiguous; they tend to make us slower to act, rather than quicker. They make us more humble, cause us to empathize with people we don't know, because they help us imagine these people, and when we imagine them - if the storytelling is good enough - we imagine them as being, essentially, like us. If the story is poor, or has an agenda, if it comes out of a paucity of imagination or is rushed, we imagine those other people as essentially unlike us: unknowable, inscrutable, incontrovertible. #Quote by George Saunders

#6. The man on the rise must always show respect to the man on the decline. #Quote by Kamar Brown

Humble quotes by John Calvin
#10. But we ever find, that even those who have not been deficient in their zeal for piety, nor in reverence and sobriety in handling the mysteries of God, have by no means agreed among themselves on every point; for God hath never favored his servants with so great a benefit, that they were all endued with a full and perfect knowledge in every thing; and, no doubt, for this end - that he might first keep them humble; and secondly, render them disposed to cultivate brotherly intercourse. #Quote by John Calvin
Humble quotes by Donna Augustine
#11. She didn't like to brag about being homeless. She was humble like that. #Quote by Donna Augustine
Humble quotes by Lillie Langtry
#12. A complete transformation seemed to have place in my life overnight. It was quite staggering, and thenceforward visitors and invitations continued to pour in daily until they became a source of grievance to our landlady, who was obliged to engage an extra servant to respond to the battering of powdered footmen on her humble and somewhat flimsy door. #Quote by Lillie Langtry

Humble quotes by Michael Keaton
#25. I reached a point where I didn't think I was that great. I'm not being humble. I was looking at things and thinking: 'You're not really good in that'. I think I was becoming boring as well as bored. It was nobody's fault except mine - probably - and it might not even be my fault. #Quote by Michael Keaton
Humble quotes by Francois Magendie
#26. Every one is fond of comparing himself to something great and grandiose, as Louis XIV likened himself to the sun, and others have had like similes. I am more humble. I am a mere street scavenger (chiffonier) of science. With my hook in my hand and my basket on my back, I go about the streets of science, collecting what I find. #Quote by Francois Magendie
Humble quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle
#27. The relations between us in those latter days were peculiar. He was a man of habits, narrow and concentrated habits, and I had become one of them. As an institution I was like the violin, the shag tobacco, the old black pipe, the index books, and others perhaps less excusable. When it was a case of active work and a comrade was needed upon whose nerve he could place some reliance, my role was obvious. But apart from this I had uses. I was a whetstone for his mind. I stimulated him. He liked to think aloud in my presence. His remarks could hardly be said to be made to me--many of them would have been as appropriately addressed to his bedstead--but none the less, having formed the habit, it had become in some way helpful that I should register and interject. If I irritated him by a certain methodical slowness in my mentality, that irritation served only to make his own flame-like intuitions and impressions flash up the more vividly and swiftly. Such was my humble role in our alliance. #Quote by Arthur Conan Doyle
Humble quotes by John Lennon
#28. I'm a moldy moldy man I'm moldy thru and thru I'm a moldy moldy man You would not think it true I'm moldy til my eyeballs I'm moldy til my toe I will not dance I shyballs I'm such a humble Joe. #Quote by John Lennon
Humble quotes by Timothy Keller
#29. Think of people you consider fanatical. They're overbearing, self-righteous, opinionated, insensitive, and harsh. Why? It's not because they are too Christian, it's because they are not Christian enough. They are fanatically zealous and courageous, but they are not fanatically humble, sensitive, loving, emphatic, forgiving, or understanding- as Christ was ... What strikes us as overly fanatical is actually a failure to be fully committed to Christ and his gospel. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Humble quotes by Amy Hatvany
#30. Humiliation is about shame. Becoming humble is about being of use to others. It helps you get off the self-pity pot and stop wallowing around in your own crap. #Quote by Amy Hatvany
Humble quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#31. Newness of life: repent heart, humble soul #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Humble quotes by John Ruskin
#32. The persons who become rich are, generally speaking, industrious, resolute, proud, covetous, prompt, methodical, sensible, unimaginative, insensitive, and ignorant. The persons who remain poor are the entirely foolish, the entirely wise, the idle, the reckless, the humble, the thoughtful, the dull, the imaginative, the sensitive, the well-informed, the improvident, the irregularly and impulsively wicked, the clumsy knave, the open thief, and the entirely merciful just and godly person. #Quote by John Ruskin
Humble quotes by Rick Warren

Humble quotes by Drake

Humble quotes by John R. Mabry
#36. Whoever believes, fears. Whoever fears is humble. Whoever is humble becomes gentle. Whoever is gentle pacifies the unruly forces of desire and aggression and begins to keep the commandments. Whoever keeps the commandments is purified. Whoever is purified is illuminated. Whoever is illuminated is made a spouse of the divine Logos-Bridegroom and shares with him the bridal chamber of mysteries. - Maximos the Confessor #Quote by John R. Mabry

Humble quotes by Ezra Taft Benson
#39. There is no place for fear among men and women who Almighty, who do not hesitate to humble themselves in seeking divine guidance through prayer. Though persecutions arise, though reverses come, in prayer we can find reassurance, for God will speak peace to the soul. That peace, that spirit of serenity, is life's greatest blessing. #Quote by Ezra Taft Benson
Humble quotes by Dwight L. Moody
#40. God has nothing to say to the self-righteous. Unless you humble yourself before Him in the dust, and confess before Him your iniquities and sins, the gate of heaven, which is open only for sinners, saved by grace, must be shut against you forever. #Quote by Dwight L. Moody
Humble quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#41. Time passes regardless of how we use it; we grow old whether we act or procrastinate. A person who is unwilling to work to accomplishing worthy goals and who does not dream of performing great feats will always be mediocre. A courageous soul works conscientiously to accomplish personal goals that benefit other people. I aspire to find the audacity to create a self that I am not ashamed of being and live a humble and worthy life. The seer never wants for anything but an opportunity to learn and rejoice in life. Every day is a proper day to begin or continue a vision quest to attain insight. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Humble quotes by Margaret Atwood
#42. Sometimes when I am dusting the mirror with the grapes I look at myself in it, although I know it is vanity. In the afternoon light of the parlour my skin is a pale mauve, like a faded bruise, and my teeth are greenish. I think of all the things that have been written about me - that I am inhuman female demon, that I am an innocent victim of a blackguard forced against my will and in danger of my own life, that I was too ignorant to know how to act and that to hang me would be judicial murder, that I am fond of animals, that I am very handsome with a brilliant complexion, that I have blue eyes, that I have green eyes, that I have auburn and also have brown hair, that I am tall and also not above the average height, that I am well and decently dressed, that I robbed a dead woman to appear so, that I am brisk and smart about my work, that I am of a sullen disposition with a quarrelsome temper, that I have the appearance of a person rather above my humble station, that I am a good girl with a pliable nature and no harm is told of me, that I am cunning and devious, that I am soft in the head and little better than an idiot. And I wonder, how can I be all of these different things at once? #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Humble quotes by Stellar StarElven
#43. Be humble for you are made of Earth,
Be noble for you are made of stars #Quote by Stellar StarElven
Humble quotes by Min Jin Lee
#44. Clothing was magic. Casey believed this. She would never admit this to her classmates in any of her women's studies courses, but she felt that an article of clothing could change a person ... Each skirt, blouse, necklace, or humble shoe said something - certain pieces screamed, and others whispered seductively, but no matter, she experienced each item's expression keenly, and she loved this world. every article suggested an image, a life, a kind of woman, and Casey felt drawn to them. (Free Food For Millionaires, p.41). #Quote by Min Jin Lee
Humble quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#45. For, however old, plain, humble, desolate, afflicted we may be, so long as our hearts preserve the feeblest spark of life, they preserve also, shivering near that pale ember, a starved, ghostly longing for appreciation and affection. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Humble quotes by Steve Brown

Humble quotes by Swarnakanthi Rajapakse
#48. Generally, that humble piece of furniture placed on the front veranda of the house officially belonged to the man of the household; the women never slept on it. #Quote by Swarnakanthi Rajapakse
Humble quotes by Aporva Kala
#49. He did not see the huge armies but the world divided into two opposites camps: the right and the wrong, the good and the evil, the aggressor and the defender, the unrighteous and the righteous, the arrogant and the humble. It is not the people who are inclined to fight against each other but the men who lead them. Humanity as a rule wants to relate with each other and wars are an exception to this rule. #Quote by Aporva Kala
Humble quotes by Chuck D
#50. Rap comes from the humble beginnings of rebelling against the status quo. Now, rappers have become the status quo themselves. You can't rebel against the Queen and then become the Queen yourself. I attribute much of the blame to testosterone-male dominance and patriarchy. #Quote by Chuck D
Humble quotes by Kate Bernheimer
#51. Plain and simple, I hope, in a fairy tale way: in fairy tales it is often the humble to whom magic is revealed. #Quote by Kate Bernheimer
Humble quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#52. The humble, simple souls, who are little enough to see the bigness of God in the littleness of a Babe, are therefore the only ones who will ever understand the reason of His visitation. He came to this poor earth of ours to carry on an exchange; to say to us, as only the Good God could say: 'you give me your humanity, and I will give you my Divinity; you give me your time, and I will give you My eternity; you give me your broken heart, and I will give you Love; you give me your nothingness, and I will give you My all. #Quote by Fulton J. Sheen
Humble quotes by John C. Wright
#53. The first kind of problems are the ones life sends upon you to test you, to make you humble or make you longsuffering, or whatever you may need. #Quote by John C. Wright

Humble quotes by Samuel Richardson

Humble quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#56. There is no room for ignorance among the knowledgeable,
no room for nonsense among the practical,
no room for fear among the formidable,
no room for haste among the gentle,
no room for dishonesty among the noble,
no room for indecency among the honorable,
no room for insolence among the respectful,
and no room for secrecy among the truthful.

And there is also no room for hubris among the humble,
no room for indecision among the stable,
no room for weakness among the powerful,
no room for distrust among the reliable,
no room for intolerance among the hospitable,
no room for stinginess among the charitable,
no room for wrath among the amiable,
and no room for strife among the affable. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Humble quotes by Vishen Lakhiani
#57. Epic things start with small humble steps. Pay respect to your beginnings. And if you're just starting out, know that it's OK to be sucky. To be small. To be messy and chaotic. Just make sure to never ever stop dreaming. #Quote by Vishen Lakhiani
Humble quotes by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
#58. As you grow older and young people come up to you with their history books, you realize that some of the things I have been able to do have been impactful. But for me, I try to keep everything in perspective and stay humble. #Quote by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Humble quotes by Thomas Watson

Humble quotes by Josephine Winslow Johnson

Humble quotes by Edmund Burke
#64. You would have had a protected, satisfied, laborious, and obedient people, taught to seek and to recognize the happiness that is to be found by virtue in all conditions; in which consists the true moral equality of mankind, and not in that monstrous fiction, which, by inspiring false ideas and vain expectations into men destined to travel in the obscure walk of laborious life, serves only to aggravate and embitter that real inequality, which it never can remove; and which the order of civil life establishes as much for the benefit of those whom it must leave in a humble state, as those whom it is able to exalt to a condition more splendid, but not more happy. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Humble quotes by Isaac Bashevis Singer
#65. There is a quiet humor in Yiddish and a gratitude for every day of life, every crumb of success, each encounter of love ... In a figurative way, Yiddish is the wise and humble language of us all, the idiom of a frightened and hopeful humanity. #Quote by Isaac Bashevis Singer
Humble quotes by John Steinbeck
#66. He bathed in icy water and scrubbed and scratched his body with a block of pumice stone, and the pain
of his scraping seemed good to him. He knew that he had to tell his guilt to his father and beg his forgiveness. And he had to humble himself to Aron, not only now but always. He could not live without that. And yet, when he was called out and stood in the room with Sheriff Quinn and his father, he was as raw and angry as a surly dog and his hatred of himself turned outward toward everyone - a vicious cur he was, unloved, unloving. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Humble quotes by Eric Hoffer
#67. The impression somehow prevails that the true believer, particularly the religious individual, is a humble person. The truth is the surrendering and humbling of the self breed pride and arrogance. The true believer is apt to see himself as one of the chosen, the salt of the earth, the light of the world, a prince disguised in meekness, who is destined to inherit the earth and the kingdom of heaven too. He who is not of his faith is evil; he who will not listen will perish. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Humble quotes by Drake
#68. Cause you know, life is what we make it and a chance is like a picture, it'd be nice if you just take it #Quote by Drake
Humble quotes by Drake
#69. I know that it's comin I just hope that I'm alive for it #Quote by Drake
Humble quotes by John Waters
#70. I actually think that my films are intellectual. I think almost everything I do is intellectual, but I would never say that, because that's a compliment. That's up to others to say about me. The same way, I would never say I do art. I think art is up to history. It's up to other people to utter that word. So I try to be humble. #Quote by John Waters
Humble quotes by Joseph F. Smith
#71. Of what use is it that we know the truth, if we lack its spirit? Our knowledge, in this event, becomes a condemnation to us, failing to bear fruit. It is not sufficient that we know the truth, but we must be humble with this knowledge possess the spirit to actuate us to good deeds. Baptism, as well as all other outward ordinances, without the spirit accompanying, is useless. We remain but baptized sinners. #Quote by Joseph F. Smith
Humble quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#72. Mother' (with a short scornful laugh), 'you will make me confess. The only time I saw Miss Hale, she treated me with a haughty civility which had a strong flavour of contempt in it. She held herself aloof from me as if she had been a queen, and I her humble, unwashed vassal. Be easy, mother. #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell
Humble quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#73. We are on the road to producing a race of men too mentally modest to believe in the multiplication table. We are in danger of seeing philosophers who doubt the law of gravity as being a mere fancy of their own. Scoffers of old time were too proud to be convinced; but these are too humble to be convinced. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Humble quotes by Bryant McGill
#74. For the vile human pigs in life; the sloppy, disheveled, uncaring dregs, the ungrateful, and especially for the vicious, negative emotional peasants - there will only continue to be the hard and painful lessons you so desperately need. The invisible hand will hold you in your wretched place until your last breath - unless you evolve. If you are cruel and ignorant the invisible fist will pound you into oblivion until you submit, humble yourself and soften your hard heart. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Humble quotes by Jimmy Carter
#75. A country will have authority and influence because of moral factors, not its military strength; because it can be humble and not blatant and arrogant; because our people want to serve others and not dominate others. And a nation without morality will soon lose its influence around the world. #Quote by Jimmy Carter
Humble quotes by Tarryn Fisher
#76. Its humble beginnings are that of a parasite, growing in something that is alive, draining its host of beauty. It's clever - the plight of the splinter. A sort of rags to riches story. #Quote by Tarryn Fisher
Humble quotes by Jeff Goldblum
#77. I'm a humble student of acting myself and part of that studentship is teaching. #Quote by Jeff Goldblum
Humble quotes by Ignatius Of Loyola
#78. If you attach your heart to certain places and occupations, obedience oftentimes places you in some other place that you may not like; to be always cheerful, be always humble and obedient. #Quote by Ignatius Of Loyola
Humble quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#79. It is true, perhaps, that your beauty is not a flashy beauty, as is Asher's, or Jean-Claude's, or even your Nathaniel's, but it is beauty nonetheless. Perhaps the more precious, for it grows not at the first sight of the eye, but a little more each time one speaks with you or watches you move so commandingly into a situation, or watches the truth in your eyes when you say that you are not beautiful, and I realize that you mean it. That you are not being humble, or playing silly games, you simply do not see yourself."

"See, that's not beauty, that's pretty with a personality that you like."

"But do you not see, Anita, that there is beauty that hits the eye like a bolt of lighting, that burns and sears and blinds. It is more disaster than pleasure. But yours, yours is a beauty that lulls one into comfort, into not protecting one's eyes from the light, then one night you realize that the moon, too, has its beauty. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Humble quotes by Robert Breault
#80. Few are humble, for it takes a self-esteem few possess. #Quote by Robert Breault
Humble quotes by Solomon
#81. He mocks proud mockers but gives grace to the humble. from the Book of Proverbs #Quote by Solomon
Humble quotes by A.W. Tozer
#82. Nicolas Herman, who was commonly known as Brother Lawrence, was a simple dishwasher in the institution where he lived. He said he did those dishes for the glory of God. When he was through with his humble work, he would fall down flat on the floor and worship God. Whatever he was told to do, he did it for the glory of God. He testified, "I wouldn't as much as pick up a straw from the floor, but I did it for the glory of God. #Quote by A.W. Tozer
Humble quotes by Drake
#83. Yes I make mistakes that I don't ever make excuses for #Quote by Drake
Humble quotes by Melody Carlson
#84. You know the real reason we celebrate Christmas, don't you? I mean, beyond Santa Claus and jungle bells and Christmas trees?
You mean because Jesus was born? she asked.
Yes ... but did you ever think how Jesus was born? I mean, have you considered how it was such a humble birth, in a small barn ... how he was laid in a hay trough ... how the Son if almighty God humbled himself to be born in such lowly conditions? Have you thought about it like that? Jesus could have been born in a fine palace. After all, he was the Son of God. But for some reason God chose humble beginnings for His son. Do you ever wonder why? ... I think because God wanted to show that his love could reach to everyone, no matter who they were, from the poorest of poor to great kings. #Quote by Melody Carlson
Humble quotes by Ashthon Jones
#85. Steven Tyler is awesome. He is so humble. He's really sweet and coming from him and his career, it's amazing. #Quote by Ashthon Jones
Humble quotes by Brian Sandoval
#86. In 1984, Nevada Senator Paul Laxalt gave me the opportunity of a lifetime to serve as a legislative intern in his office in Washington, D.C. Coming from humble beginnings, the experience changed my life and charted me on a path of public service. #Quote by Brian Sandoval
Humble quotes by Andrew Jackson Downing
#87. Architecture, either practically considered or viewed as an art of taste, is a subject so important and comprehensive in itself, that volumes would be requisite to do it justice. Buildings of every description, from the humble cottage to the lofty temple, are objects of such constant recurrence in every habitable part of the globe, and are so strikingly indicative of the intelligence, character, and taste of the inhabitants, that they possess in themselves a great peculiar interest for the mind. #Quote by Andrew Jackson Downing
Humble quotes by Randy Couture
#88. You have to be true to yourself and remain humble. Whether you win or lose, you've got to treat everyone the same, and be who you are. #Quote by Randy Couture

Humble quotes by Shaquille O'Neal
#92. If I was able to have the game I have and shoot 80% from the line, I'd probably be an arrogant person rather than a humble one. Everything happens for a reason. #Quote by Shaquille O'Neal
Humble quotes by Erica Stevens
#93. He grabbed hold of her, pulling her against him. A small gasp of surprise escaped her as he fell to his knees before her.

I don't deserve you; I did nothing to earn your love, or the gift … that your presence has brought back to my life. #Quote by Erica Stevens
Humble quotes by Susannah Cahalan

Humble quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#95. A truly Christian love, either to God or men, is a humble broken-hearted love. The desires of the saints, however earnest, are humble desires. Their hope is a humble hope; and their joy, even when it is unspeakable and full of glory, is a humble broken-hearted joy, and leaves the Christian more poor in spirit, and more like a little child, and more disposed to a universal lowliness of behaviour. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Humble quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#96. You must stop looking at the world through your head. You must look through your heart, instead. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Humble quotes by Demi Lovato

#101. I know that a Christian should be humble, but against the Pope I am going to be proud and say to him: You, Pope, I will not have you for my boss, for I am sure that my doctrine is divine. #Quote by Martin Luther
Humble quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#102. Humility is the greatest shaper of souls and crafter of character, for it wipes away all the grandiose things that we spend so much of our lives pretending to be, so that we can spend all of our lives being the exceptional person that we were actually created to be. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Humble quotes by Haruki Murakami
#103. O Lord in Heaven, may thy name be praised in utmost purity for ever and ever, and may thy kingdom come to us. Please forgive our many sins, and bestow thy blessings upon our humble pathways. Amen. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Humble quotes by Mikhail Bulgakov
#104. My humble ... I don't drink ... '
'A shame! What about a game of dice, then? Or do have some other favourite game? Dominoes? Cards?
'I don't play games,' the already weary barman responded.
'Altogether bad,' the host concluded. 'As you will, but there's something noce nice hidden in men who avoid wine, games, the society of charming women, table talk. Such people are either gravely ill or secretly hate everybody around them. True, there may be exceptions. Among persons sitting down with me at the banqueting table, there have been on occasion some extraordinary scoundrels! Chapter 18 #Quote by Mikhail Bulgakov
Humble quotes by Virginia Woolf
#105. It was chivalrous because she was too remote for real companionship, so that there was always a kind of chance in one's offering; perhaps she would not perceive it; perhaps she would kindle rapture by a sudden recognition; her distance made such close moments exquisitely sweet. But alas, no humble friendship however romantic, could give her the sense that we completely shared her thoughts; the nature of them made it hard for anyone to understand; and her sorrow was very lonely. Perhaps one would come into a room unexpectedly and surprise her in tears, and, to one's miserable confusion, she would hide them instantly, and speak ordinary words, as though she did not imagine that one could understand her suffering. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Humble quotes by Francis Atterbury
#106. A very prosperous people, flushed with great victories and successes, are seldom so pious, so humble, so just, or so provident as to perpetuate their happiness. #Quote by Francis Atterbury
Humble quotes by Elizabeth Parker
#107. Be creative enough to dream, brave enough to try, persistent enough to succeed, and humble enough to thank those who helped you along the way. #Quote by Elizabeth Parker
Humble quotes by Catherine Aerie
#108. Little King was not just a dog. He was part of Jasmine's childhood; he was a little brother, a dear faithful friend, and an indiscriminate companion to all the humans in the Garden Of Melody, whether they were noble or humble, whether they were rich or poor. #Quote by Catherine Aerie
Humble quotes by Elisabeth Elliot
#109. The world looks for happiness through self-assertion. The Christian knows that joy is found in self-abandonment. 'If a man will let himself be lost for My sake,' Jesus said, 'he will find his true self.' A Christian woman's true freedom lies on the other side of a very small gate
humble obedience
but that gate leads out into a largeness of life undreamed of by the liberators of the world, to a place where the God-given differentiation between the sexes is not obfuscated but celebrated, where our inequalities are seen as essential to the image of God, for it is in male and female, in male as male and female as female, not as two identical and interchangeable halves, that the image is manifested. #Quote by Elisabeth Elliot
Humble quotes by Beryl Dov
#110. Humble Wishes [10w]

Humble quotes by Gordy Hoffman
#111. Be humble with everyone you meet and don't wait for others to follow up with them. You stay in touch and be polite. #Quote by Gordy Hoffman
Humble quotes by Frederick Douglass
#112. Mr. Lincoln was not only a great President, but a great man - too great to be small in anything. In his company I was never in any way reminded of my humble origin, or of my unpopular color. #Quote by Frederick Douglass
Humble quotes by Israel Shenker
#113. Fundamentalists are less concerned to be systematic and rational than to be humble and faithful, accepting God's commandments because they come from God, not because they proceed from common sense or sophisticated reason. #Quote by Israel Shenker
Humble quotes by Phillip Brooks
#114. The true way to be humble is not to stoop until you are smaller than yourself but to stand at your real height against some higher nature that will show you what the real smallness of your greatest greatness is. #Quote by Phillip Brooks
Humble quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#115. The humble live in continuous peace, while in the hearts of the proud are envy and frequent anger. #Quote by Thomas A Kempis
Humble quotes by Daniel Immerwahr
#116. Hoover's greatest challenge was one of the least visible: the humble screw thread. Screws, nuts, and bolts are universal fasteners. They function in industrial societies, as one writer put it, like salt and pepper "sprinkled on practically every conceivable kind of apparatus." Yet every such society encounters, early on, the vexing problem of incompatible screw threads. Different screws have different measurements, including the thread angles. If those don't line up between the males and the females, you are, so to speak, screwed. .... Screw thread incompatibilities grew even more worrisome with the advent of cars and planes - complex vibrating objects whose failure could mean death. The problem had hobbled the armed forces in the First World War, which led Congress to appoint a National Screw Thread Commission. Still, it took years, until 1924, before the first national screw thread standard was finally published. It wasn't a big-splash innovation like the Model T or the airplane, but that hard-won screw thread standard quietly accelerated the economy nonetheless. #Quote by Daniel Immerwahr
Humble quotes by Jill Scott
#117. You have to be humble when you're dealing with God. #Quote by Jill Scott
Humble quotes by Horia Sima
#118. There is no doubt, that in this world, there are all sorts of people who look nice, but are empty inside; who do not feel either moral or spiritual aspirations in addition to the physical gifts with which nature blessed them ... But Corneliu Codreanu, his magnificient physique corresponds to an exceptional inner wholeness. Exclamations of admiration from men left him indifferent. Praise angered him. He had only a fighter's greatness and the ambition of great reformers... The characteristic of his soul was goodness. If you want to penetrate the initial motive which prompted Corneliu Codreanu to throw in a fight so hard and almost desperate, the best answer is that he did it out of compassion for suffering people. His heart bled with thousands of injuries to see the misery in which peasants and workers struggled. His love for the people - unlimited! He was sensitive to any suffering the working masses endured. He had a cult for the humble, and showed an infinite attention to their aspirations and their hopes. The smallest window, the most trivial complaint, were examined with the same seriousness with which he addressed grave political problems. #Quote by Horia Sima
Humble quotes by Drake
#119. Damn where my roof just go? Top slipped off like Janet at the Super Bowl. #Quote by Drake
Humble quotes by K.J. Masters
#120. Don't argue with the person who puts his knowledge above everyone's else's; you'll always lose in that respect. But, in reality, he is the loser because he has put himself in a position where he can longer learn and therefore he can no longer grow and prosper! Be humble and open to always being a student, and you will continue to grow wise throughout your days! #Quote by K.J. Masters

Humble quotes by Geraldine Brooks
#122. A canoe paddle is animate, because it causes something else to move. Even a humble onion has, in their view, a soul, since it causes action - pulling tears from the eyes. #Quote by Geraldine Brooks

#123. I got more than a thing for you, tattoo wit a ink for you right over my heart girl, I'll do the unthinkable. #Quote by Drake
Humble quotes by Viet Thanh Nguyen
#124. Country music was the most segregated kind of music in America, where even whites played jazz and even blacks sang in the opera. Something like country music was what lynch mobs must have enjoyed while stringing up their black victims. Country music was not necessarily lynching music, but no other music could be imagined as lynching's accompaniment. Beethoven's Ninth was the opus for Nazis, concentration camp commanders, and possibly President Truman as he contemplated atomizing Hiroshima, classical music the refined score for the high-minded extermination of brutish hordes. Country music was set to the more humble beat of the red-blooded, bloodthirsty American heartland. #Quote by Viet Thanh Nguyen
Humble quotes by Shivya Nath
#125. I remember the years I had been too afraid to dream of sitting on the ledge of a humble yellow house, chatting with a family that wasn't my own, chatting in a language that wasn't my own, in a part of the world so far away from the one I grew up in and yet not that different. #Quote by Shivya Nath
Humble quotes by Michelle Moschetti

Humble quotes by John Steinbeck
#127. We will have to see whether the practicing through the years has prepared me for the writing of a book. For this is the book I have always wanted and have worked and prayed to be able to write. We shall see whether I am capable. Surely I feel humble in the face of this work. And as our Roman friends would say when casting outside themselves for help, Ora pro mihi. February #Quote by John Steinbeck
Humble quotes by Robin Sacredfire
#128. Whenever an artist becomes dominated by his own ignorance, his art loses value, for it is only the professional artist that can be humble enough to admit that he is a tool in the hands of creativity. #Quote by Robin Sacredfire
Humble quotes by Periander
#129. However exalted our position, we should still not despise the powers of the humble. #Quote by Periander
Humble quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#130. Humility is a virtue that is enjoined upon us. So far as the artist is concerned, with good reason; indeed, when he compares what he has done with what he wanted to do, when he compares his disappointing efforts with the great masterpieces of the world, he finds it the easiest of virtues to practice. Unless he is humble he cannot hope to improve. Self-satisfaction is fatal to him. The strange thing is that we are embarrassed by humility in others. We are ill at ease when they humble themselves before us. I don't know why this should be unless it is that there is something servile in it which offends our sense of human dignity. When I was engaging two coloured maids to look after me the overseer of the plantation who produced them, as a final recommendation, said: 'They're good niggers, they're humble.' Sometimes when one of them hides her face with her fingers to speak to me or with a little nervous giggle asks if she can have something I've thrown away, I'm inclined to cry: 'For heaven's sake don't be so humble.'
Or is it that humility in others forces upon us the consciousness of our own unworthiness? #Quote by W. Somerset Maugham
Humble quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#131. The greatest sacrifices of all are those that are done without an audience. And once completed, those selfsame sacrifices are left forever anonymous so as to never gather an audience. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough

Humble quotes by Gary Zukav
#135. Love is the ability to live your life with an empowered heart without attachment to the outcome, the ability within yourself to distinguish within yourself between love and fear and choose love regardless of what is going on inside yourself or outside. This is self-mastery or authentic power ... that means you become clear, forgiving, humble and loving ... you are grounded in harmony, cooperating, sharing and reverence for life. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Humble quotes by Monica Johnson
#136. Jesus was humble when He walked this earth. He had all power, yet used all meekness. #Quote by Monica Johnson
Humble quotes by Lynda Barry
#137. Above me soft footsteps, the sound through the ceiling of a teenager haunted by a door to the night. My cousin Maybonne lights up a Salem, blows ghosts to the darkness, be it ever so humble, there's no place like home. #Quote by Lynda Barry
Humble quotes by St. Catherine Of Siena
#138. We will be humble as we are obedient, and as obedient as we are humble. #Quote by St. Catherine Of Siena
Humble quotes by Chloe Neill
Humble quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#140. If your spouse gets sick, who would you visit - your non-doctor neighbor or an actual doctor! Any sane person would visit a doctor over a non-doctor neighbor, even if that neighbor happens to be a celebrity, because it is common knowledge that fame or charisma is not equivalent to medical expertise, yet when it comes to choosing a doctor to treat the sickness of a nation, the masses most proudly elect any charismatic chimpanzee over a humble, wise and conscientious leader. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Humble quotes by Jeremy Scott

Humble quotes by Thomas Of Villanova
#143. Humility is the mother of many virtues because from it obedience, fear, reverence, patience, modesty, meekness and peace are born. He who is humble easily obeys everyone, fears to offend anyone, is at peace with everyone, is kind with all. #Quote by Thomas Of Villanova

Humble quotes by Pope Francis
#154. Poverty that is learned with the humble, the poor, the sick and all those who are on the existential peripheries of life. Theoretical poverty is of no use to us. Poverty is learned by touching the flesh of the poor Christ, in the humble, the poor, the sick, in children. #Quote by Pope Francis
Humble quotes by Nikki Rowe
#155. The world could be a little less cruel, if we nurture each other while we grow; learn understanding while we transform and maintain a humble attitude whilst we succeed. #Quote by Nikki Rowe
Humble quotes by John Fowles
#156. The rival you both share is myself. I do not wish to marry ... First, because my past habituated me to loneliness. I had always thought I hated it. And now I have found I treasure it. I do not want to share my life. I wish to be what I am, not what a husband must expect me to become in marriage. My second reason is my present. I never expected to be happy in life. Yet I find myself happy where I am situated now. I have varied congenial work ... I am admitted to the daily conversation of genius. Such men have their faults. Their vices. But they are not those the world chooses to imagine. I have no genius myself, I have no more than the capacity to aid genius in very small and humble ways ... I believe I owe a debt to good fortune. I am not to seek it elsewhere. I am to see it as precarious, as a thing of which I must not allow myself to be bereft. #Quote by John Fowles
Humble quotes by Sophia Amoruso
#157. There is no normal. What my job was a few years ago was completely different than what it is today. As soon as I have it dialed in, the company changes and the team changes and my role changes as a result. What the company needs is always evolving, and I don't get to choose what I want to do as much as I thought I would be now - which is OK. It keeps me in this position of learning new things and keeping me humble. There is always something I don't know, and I'm comfortable with that. #Quote by Sophia Amoruso
Humble quotes by Drake
#158. Did you forget me? Or are you too scared to tell me that you met me in fear that I won't remember? #Quote by Drake

#159. A vast deal of human sympathy runs along the electric line of needlework, stretching from the throne to the wicker chair of the humble seamstress. #Quote by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Humble quotes by Thomas A Kempis
#160. Let all your thoughts be with the Most High, and direct your humble prayers unceasingly to Christ. If you cannot contemplate high and heavenly things, take refuge in the Passion of Christ, and love to dwell within His Sacred Wounds. For if you devoutly seek the Wounds of Jesus and the precious marks of His Passion, you will find great strength in all troubles. #Quote by Thomas A Kempis
Humble quotes by Anonymous

Humble quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#163. No man is disbeliever! Everyone is believer! All men believe in something! If a man does not believe in God, He is a believer too, because he simply believes that God does not exist! Don't give yourself airs just because you believe in something since everyman believes in something! Always be humble! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Humble quotes by Hannah Hart
#164. Our society is stuck between problem and solution when it comes to treating mental illness. We cannot find a solution until we agree on the problem. And it is my humble opinion that the problem is fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of the misunderstood. Instead, let us seek to pursue knowledge over fear. Let's find a way to save lives that can be saved. #Quote by Hannah Hart

Humble quotes by Gerald Durrell
#168. Among the myrtles the mantids moved, lightly, carefully, swaying slightly, the quintessence of evil. They were lank and green, with chinless faces and monstrous globular eyes, frosty gold, with an expression of intense, predatory madness in them. The crooked arms, with their fringes of sharp teeth, would be raised in mock supplication to the insect world, so humble, so fervent, trembling slightly when a butterfly flew too close. #Quote by Gerald Durrell
Humble quotes by Craig Groeschel
#169. When I ask God to change my actions, that honesty about my own inconsistent behaviors forces me not to be so hard on other believers. Humble acknowledgment of the plank in my own eye gives me more patience with the specks in everyone else's (see Matthew 7:1-5). Instead of pointing the finger at others, let's allow God to examine us. #Quote by Craig Groeschel

Humble quotes by Daniel O'Brien
#172. FDR's struggle with illness and subsequent metal-filled life are remarkably similar to the story of another great leader who was part robot: Iron Man. FDR, much like Tony Stark, was cocky and arrogant before his life-changing diagnosis, but the years of suffering changed all of that, and he emerged more humble, more fearless, and ready to defend America. Also, FDR wore iron braces and used a wheelchair, which, for the purposes of this comparison, is exactly like a well-armed robot suit. #Quote by Daniel O'Brien

Humble quotes by Aristotle.
#174. Modesty is hardly to be described as a virtue. It is a feeling rather than a disposition. It is a kind of fear of falling into disrepute. #Quote by Aristotle.

Humble quotes by Michael S. Horton
#177. Theologies of glory ascend to heaven with humanly devised methods for bringing Christ down or for descending into the depths to make him living and real to us, but a theology of the cross receives him in the humble and weak form of those creaturely means that he has ordained.3 #Quote by Michael S. Horton
Humble quotes by Ben McLemore
#178. I'm never going to forget Wellston. It's where I grew up. It's my heart and my pride. The people are great here. I'm going to give back. I was born and raised here. I'm a humble person. The community knows that. I want to build it back to how it was and be a happier place than it was. #Quote by Ben McLemore

Humble quotes by Anatole France
#180. I have always preferred the folly of the passions to the wisdom of indifference. But just because my own passions are not of that sort which burst out with violence to devastate and kill, the common mind is not aware of their existence. Nevertheless, I am greatly moved by them at times, and it has more than once been my fate to lose my sleep for the sake of a few pages written by some forgotten monk or printed by some humble apprentice of Peter Schöffer. And if these fierce enthusiasms are slowly being quenched in me, it is only because I am being slowly quenched myself. Our passions are ourselves. My old books are Me. I am just as old and thumb-worn as they are. #Quote by Anatole France
Humble quotes by Pope John XXIII
#181. Born poor, but of honored and humble people, I am particularly proud to die poor. #Quote by Pope John XXIII

Humble quotes by Matthew Henry
#184. A modest dress is a very good thing, if it be the genuine indication of a humble heart, and is to instruct; but it is a bad thing if it be the hypocritical disguise of a proud ambitious heart, and is to deceive. Let men be really as good as they seem to be, but not seem to be better than really they are. #Quote by Matthew Henry
Humble quotes by Malcolm Muggeridge
#185. I will lift mine eyes unto the pills. Almost everyone takes them, from the humble aspirin to the multi-colored, king-sized three deckers, which put you to sleep, wake you up, stimulate and soothe you all in one. It is an age of pills. #Quote by Malcolm Muggeridge
Humble quotes by Roger Zelazny
#186. Who are you, man?"
"I? I am nothing," replied the other. "A leaf caught in a whirlpool. A feather in the wind..."
"Too bad," said Yama, "for there are leaves and feathers enough in the world for me to have labored so long only to increase their number. I wanted me a man, one who might continue a war interrupted by his absence-a man of power who could oppose with that power the will of gods. I thought you were he."
"I am"-he sqinted again-"Sam. I am Sam. Once- long ago... I did fight, didn't I? Many times..."
"You were the Great-Souled Sam, the Budda. Do you remember?"
"Maybe I was.." a slow fire was kindled in his eyes.
"Yes," he said then. "Yes, I was. Humblest of the proud, proudest of the humble. I fought. I taught the Way for a time. I fought again, taught again, tried politics, magic, poison.. I fought one great battle so terrible the sun itself hid its face from the slaughter-with men and gods, with animals and demons, with spirits of the earth and air, of fire and water, with slizzards and horses, swords and chariots-"
"And you lost," said Yama.
"Yes, I did, didn't I? But it was quite a showing we gave them, wasn't it? You, deathgod, were my charioteer. It all comes back to me now. We were taken prisoner and the Lords of Karma were to be our judges. You escaped them by the will-death and the Way of the Black Wheel. I could not. #Quote by Roger Zelazny
Humble quotes by James Ellis
#187. Man's birth is a lottery; it may be in the pleasant home of ease and affluence, or in the hut of poverty; in either case it may be a stain or an honor. If he is born in poverty, and his future life throws a lustre over an humble birth, the reward will not only be great, but his name will stand higher on the roll of honor and virtue, than he who can only boast of his proud descent. #Quote by James Ellis
Humble quotes by Stephen Charnock
#188. A proud faith is as much a contradiction as a humble devil. #Quote by Stephen Charnock

Covey
Humble quotes by Kent Nerburn

Humble quotes by Paul Tillich
#193. In this respect fundamentalism has demonic traits. It destroys the humble honesty of the search for truth, it splits the conscience of its thoughtful adherents, and it makes them fanatical because they are forced to suppress elements of truth of which they are dimly aware #Quote by Paul Tillich
Humble quotes by Alain De Benoist
#194. When it comes to specifying the values particular to paganism, people have generally listed features such as these: an eminently aristocratic conception of the human individual; an ethics founded on honor ("shame" rather than "sin"); an heroic attitude toward life's challenges; the exaltation and sacralization of the world, beauty, the body, strength, health; the rejection of any "worlds beyond"; the inseparability of morality and aesthetics; and so on. From this perspective, the highest value is undoubtedly not a form of "justice" whose purpose is essentially interpreted as flattening the social order in the name of equality, but everything that can allow a man to surpass himself. To paganism, it is pure absurdity to consider the results of the workings of life's basic framework as unjust. In the pagan ethic of honor, the classic antithesis noble vs. base, courageous vs. cowardly, honorable vs. dishonorable, beautiful vs. deformed, sick vs. healthy, and so forth, replace the antithesis operative in a morality based on the concept of sin: good vs. evil, humble vs. vainglorious, submissive vs. proud, weak vs. arrogant, modest vs. boastful, and so on. However, while all this appears to be accurate, the fundamental feature in my opinion is something else entirely. It lies in the denial of dualism. #Quote by Alain De Benoist
Humble quotes by Al Pacino
#195. At this point in my career, I don't have to deal with audition rejections. So I get my rejection from other things. My children can make me feel rejected. They can humble you pretty quick. #Quote by Al Pacino

#196. We humble ourselves under the mighty grace of the Creator. He will deliver us from every chain and oppression. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Humble quotes by Andrew Murray
#197. [T]he elements of holiness in us are these, each corresponding to some special aspect of God's holiness: deep Restfulness (ch. 3), humble Reverence (ch. 4), entire Surrender (ch. 5), joyful Adoration (ch. 6), simple Obedience (ch. 7). These all prepare for the Divine Indwelling (ch. 8). [ ... ]
It is simply impossible for God to dwell or rule when self is on the throne. [ ... ]
Just when we see that there is nothing in us to admire or rest in, God sees in us everything to admire and to rest in, because there is room for Himself. [ ... ]
Lowliness and holiness. Keep fast hold of the intimate connection. Lowliness is taking the place that becomes me; holiness, giving God the place that becomes Him. If I be nothing before Him, and God be all to me, I am in the sure path of holiness. Lowliness is holiness, because it gives all the glory to God. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Humble quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#198. East Germany may have been a giant penitentiary administrated by the Russians, the Stasi may have embodied the worst excesses of German authority and bureaucratic thoroughness, and anyone with brains and spirit may have fled the country before the Wall went up, but the inmates who'd remained behind to expiate the country's collective guilt had paradoxically been liberated from their Germanness (...) Humble, unpunctual, spontaneous, and generous with what little they had. (...) their real loyalties were to one other, not to the state. #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Humble quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#199. On the road to your target, move cleverly and silently; when you reached your target, be humble and silent! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan

#200. ...If it wasn't for you, I'd think that angels were all totally interchangeable.'
'You mean because I'm beyond perfect?'
'No. Because you're so humble.'
'Humility's overrated.'
'So is clear self-assessment, apparently.'
'Real warriors don't stand for psychobabble.'
'Or for rational thinking.'
He glances at my naked legs. 'No, not that rational, I admit. #Quote by Susan Ee
