Humility quotes by Kate Cooper
#6. This is why humility was so important. It was the soul's way of short-circuiting the damage that could be done by the constant need to know where one stood with respect to others.

The point of humility was not to think ill of oneself but to protect oneself from this craving for status. This, in turn, would free the spirit to see life in a new way. #Quote by Kate Cooper

"True forgiveness is one of the most healing relasing, and freeing gifts we give to ourselves."

"It requires humility. It requites us to give up our rightenous indignation, get off our soapbox, let go of blame, and le go of th pride of being right. It means we have to be willing to drop our victim story, soften our stance, and if necessary, let our heart be broken wide open." Brandon Bays Chapter 8 on forgiveness. #Quote by Brandon Bays

Humility quotes by Gertrude Himmelfarb

Humility quotes by Willa Cather
#12. To be sure, the Bishop was a little theatrical in his humility, as he had been in his grandeur; but that was his way, Auclair reflected, and, after all, nobody can help his way. If a man admits his mistakes, that is a great deal ... #Quote by Willa Cather

Humility quotes by John T. Flynn
#20. The so-called Christian virtues of humility, love, charity, personal freedom, the strong prohibitions against violence, murder, stealing, lying, cruelty-all these are washed away by war. The greatest hero is the one who kills the most people. Glamorous exploits in successful lying and mass stealing and heroic vengeance are rewarded with decorations and public acclaim. #Quote by John T. Flynn
Humility quotes by Bryant McGill
#21. Every moment you are open, as a humble student, you are surrounded with infinite possibilities of choice. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Humility quotes by Yogi Bhajan
#22. Our purpose in this life is to live in higher consciousness and to teach others to live in higher consciousness. But the best test to that consciousness is humility, selflessness, and sweetness. When you teach, teach with honesty, truthfulness, and straightforwardness. As a teacher, never compromise. As a man, always compromise. The teacher who compromises is an idiot; a person who does not compromise is an idiot. Because the teacher does not teach for himself, but for the higher consciousness. And higher consciousness will never compromise with lower consciousness. This is a straight law and that has to be considered as a law; that has to be observed as a law. #Quote by Yogi Bhajan
Humility quotes by Vince Lombardi
#23. Character is the direct result of mental attitude. I believe that character is higher than the intellect. I believe that leadership is in sacrifice, in self-denial, in humility and in the perfectly disciplined will. This is the distinction between great and little men. #Quote by Vince Lombardi
Humility quotes by John Webster
#24. Heaven-gates are not so highly arched
As princes' palaces; they that enter there
Must go upon their knees. #Quote by John Webster
Humility quotes by Paulo Coelho
#25. The humility of a warrior is not the same humility as that of a servile man. The warrior does not lower his head to anyone, and nor does he allow anyone to bow before him. The servile man, on the other hand, kneels before anyone he believes to be more powerful, and demands that the people under his command behave in a similar fashion before him. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Humility quotes by James E. Faust
#26. A grateful heart is a beginning of greatness. It is an expression of humility. It is a foundation for the development of such virtues as prayer, faith, courage, contentment, happiness, love, and well-being. #Quote by James E. Faust
Humility quotes by Richard Baxter
#27. Our very business is to teach the great lesson of self-denial and humility to our people, and how unfit is it then that we should be proud ourselves! #Quote by Richard Baxter

#28. Humility saves man: pride makes him lose his way. #Quote by Pope Francis
Humility quotes by Hugh Laurie
#29. I'm not a religious man ... I find I am a fan of science. I believe in science. A humility before the facts. I find that a moving and beautiful thing. And belief in the unknown I find less interesting. I find the known and the knowable interesting enough. #Quote by Hugh Laurie
Humility quotes by James F. Cooper
#30. The demagogue is usually sly, a detractor of others, a professor of humility and disinterestedness, a great stickler for equality as respects all above him, a man who acts in corners, and avoids open and manly expositions of his course, calls blackguards gentlemen, and gentlemen folks, appeals to passions and prejudices rather than to reason, and is in all respects, a man of intrigue and deception, of sly cunning and management. #Quote by James F. Cooper
Humility quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#31. What you see in others you must first be able to recognize in yourself. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Humility quotes by Donavan Nelson Butler
#32. The greatest risk most of us will take in our lifetime is that of repression or denial of basic rights of another person. The great risk is that you have no idea what will happen if that person you think so small or insignificant of stands up and totally eclipses the Sun in the universe of those lacking in empathy, humility, and humbleness. #Quote by Donavan Nelson Butler
Humility quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#33. Great humility brings great grace. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Humility quotes by Nicky Verd
#34. Thinking little of yourself is not humility. #Quote by Nicky Verd
Humility quotes by Francois Magendie
#35. 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
Humility quotes by Idries Shah
#36. It has truly been said that 'Humility is not so much a virtue as a necessity, in order to learn. #Quote by Idries Shah
Humility quotes by James Balog
#37. I have often thought that my work with wildlife taught me the meaning of patience, and my work with the big trees taught me the meaning of humility, and my work with the ice has taught me the meaning of mortality. #Quote by James Balog
Humility quotes by Richard J. Foster
#38. Humility, as we all know, is one of those virtues that is never gained by seeking it. The more we pursue it the more distant it becomes. To think we have it is sure evidence that we don't. #Quote by Richard J. Foster
Humility quotes by Frederick Lenz
#39. Humility is my best friend, I've always valued it above all other spiritual qualities. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Humility quotes by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
#40. O be very sure That no man will learn anything at all, Unless he first will learn humility. #Quote by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Humility quotes by Andrew Murray
#41. Our private and public prayer are our chief expression of our relation to God: it is in them chiefly that our waiting upon God must be exercised. If our waiting begin by quieting the activities of nature, and being still before God; if it bows and seeks to see God in His universal and almighty operation, alone able and always ready to work all good; if it yields itself to Him in the assurance that He is working and will work in us; if it maintains the place of humility and stillness, and surrenders until God's Spirit has quickened the faith that He will perfect His work: it will indeed become the strength and the joy of the soul. Life will become one deep blessed cry: "I have waited for Thy salvation, O Lord." "My soul, wait thou only upon God #Quote by Andrew Murray
Humility quotes by Paul   Krueger
#42. The wise king is the one who knows he isn't. #Quote by Paul Krueger
Humility quotes by Ellen Ullman
#43. I've managed to stay in a perpetual state of learning only by maintaining what I think of as a posture of ignorant humility. #Quote by Ellen Ullman
Humility quotes by Jason Versey
#44. There are seasons in our lives when we stand emotionally vulnerable, naked, affronted, without hope and broken. What of these dark difficult times? It's in these moments of deep humility and brokenness that exposes us for who we are. Adversity is a litmus test of our spirit. Don't begrudge it. It's where God does his greatest work. When you come out on the other side, and you will, you'll receive the gift of knowing exactly who you are and what you're truly made of and that's a small price to pay… if you stop and really think about it. ~Jason Versey #Quote by Jason Versey
Humility quotes by Rick Perlstein
#45. One of the ladies asked about that awful Bobby Kennedy, and Goldwater responded by speaking about the attorney general with touching affection. (Mary) McGrory recalled how Jack Kennedy behaved at a similar stage in his campaign: spouting statistics, attacking carefully chosen enemies and puffing all the right friends, quoting dead Greeks, never cracking a joke lest he remind the voters how young he was. #Quote by Rick Perlstein
Humility quotes by Bill McKibben
#46. Management of anything as complicated as a woods requires more humility than comes easily to our species, at least in its American incarnation. #Quote by Bill McKibben
Humility quotes by Joseph Williams
#47. I find afflictions to be good for me. I have always found them so. Afflictions are happy means in the hands of the Holy Spirit to subdue my corruptions, my pride, my evil passions, my inordinate love to the creature. Afflictions soften my hard heart, bring me to my knees, increase faith, increase love, increase humility, increase self-denial. Afflictions make me poor in spirit, and nothing in my own eyes. #Quote by Joseph Williams
Humility quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#48. If they are afraid of revision in the laboratory, truth will never be released except by accident. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Humility quotes by M. Scott Peck
#49. Parents who are unwilling to risk the suffering of changing and growing and learning from their children are choosing a path of senility - whether they know it or not - and their children and the world will leave them far behind. Learning from their children is the best opportunity most people have to assure themselves of a meaningful old age. Sadly, most do not take this opportunity. The Risk of Confrontation The final and possibly the greatest risk of love is the risk of exercising power with humility. #Quote by M. Scott Peck
Humility quotes by Alfred Adler
#50. It is one of the triumphs of human wit ... to conquer by humility and submissiveness ... to make oneself small in order to appear great ... such ... are often the expedients of the neurotic. #Quote by Alfred Adler
Humility quotes by Carla Power
#51. Sometimes, I really feel very frightened." The Sheikh hesitated. "For myself. There is no guarantee that you will die a believer. It could be someone who thinks they are a believer is actually an unbeliever. Everything depends on God. Nothing is certain."

This uncertainty, not of God but of himself, felt reassuringly familiar. Secularists often assume that the faithful have the comfort of certainty. But the Sheikh's humility wouldn't allow him to trust in his own piety. Every time he prays, he adds a prayer asking God, once again, to let him die as a believer. #Quote by Carla Power
Humility quotes by Herbert V. Prochnow
#52. If you would like to live in a community in which you may have pride, then dedicate yourself in a spirit of humility and your responsibilities in that community. #Quote by Herbert V. Prochnow
Humility quotes by John Ortberg
#53. The most important criterion is this: hire someone whose character and humility and attitude you would like to have reproduced in your church and in yourself. #Quote by John Ortberg
Humility quotes by Thomas Merton
#54. The complacency of the individual who admires his own excellence is bad enough, but it is more respectable than the complacency of the man who has no self-esteem because he has not even a superficial self which he can esteem. He is not a person, not an individual, only an atom. This atomized existence is sometimes praised as humility or as self-sacrifice, some-times it is called obedience, sometimes it is devotion to the dialectic of class war. It produces a kind of peace which is not peace, but only the escape from an immediately urgent sense of conflict. It is the peace not of love but of anesthesia. It is the peace not of self-realization and self-dedication, but of flight into irresponsibility. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Humility quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#55. Guerrilla leaders win wars by being paranoid and ruthless. Once they take power, they are expected to abandon those qualities and embrace opposite ones: tolerance, compromise and humility. Almost none manages to do so. #Quote by Stephen Kinzer
Humility quotes by Richard J. Daley
#56. Power is dangerous unless you have humility. #Quote by Richard J. Daley
Humility quotes by Thomas Merton
#57. We must be willing to accept the bitter truth that, in the end, we may have to become a burden to those who love us. But it is necessary that we face this also. The full acceptance of our abjection and uselessness is the virtue that can make us and others rich in the grace of God. It takes heroic charity and humility to let others sustain us when we are absolutely incapable of sustaining ourselves. We cannot suffer well unless we see Christ everywhere, both in suffering and in the charity of those who come to the aid of our affliction. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Humility quotes by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
#58. About humility we speak with an analogy: When the branches are full of fruit, they just bow down. #Quote by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Humility quotes by Czeslaw Milosz
#59. Learning
To believe you are magnificent. And gradually to discover that you are not magnificent. Enough labor for one human life. #Quote by Czeslaw Milosz
Humility quotes by Fulton J. Sheen
#60. 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
Humility quotes by C.S. Lewis
#61. There is one vice of which no man in the world is free; which every one in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else; and of which hardly any people, except Christians, ever imagine that they are guilty themselves. [ ... ] There is no fault which makes a man more unpopular, and no fault which we are more unconscious of in ourselves.[ ... ]The vice I am talking of is Pride or Self-Conceit: and the virtue opposite to it, in Christian morals, is called Humility. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Humility quotes by Jeremy Camp
#62. How my emotions starred as I played! During one of this tug-of-war contest between knowing right and doing wrong, I wrote the words to a song on my own for the first time. #Quote by Jeremy Camp
Humility quotes by Pope Benedict XVI
#63. The sign of the new Covenant is humility, hiddenness - the sign of the mustard-seed. The Son of God comes in lowliness. Both these elements belong together: the profound continuity in the history of God's action and the radical newness of the hidden mustard-seed. #Quote by Pope Benedict XVI
Humility quotes by Rachel Joyce
#64. If we can't accept what we don't know, there really is no hope. #Quote by Rachel Joyce
Humility quotes by Marguerite Steen
#65. Greatness is a two-faced coin - and the reverse is humility. #Quote by Marguerite Steen
Humility quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#66. It is better for people to mistakenly think lowly of you than for them to erroneously think highly of you. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Humility quotes by Bono
#67. David was "a star, the Elvis of the Bible." An unusually for such a rockstar with his lust for power, lust for women, lust for life, he had humility of one who knew his gift work harder than he ever would. #Quote by Bono

#68. Imagination takes humility, love and great courage. #Quote by Carson McCullers
Humility quotes by Mark Batterson
#69. Self-consciousness isn't just A curse. It is part of THE curse. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Humility quotes by Gloria D. Gonsalves
#70. Blessings will never cease to shower upon those who mind their own life with humility of accepting mistakes versus those who find joy in judging others to divert attention from their miserable lives. #Quote by Gloria D. Gonsalves
Humility quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#71. When you pray, pray so that you may know Him. When you seek to simplify, do it as a means of knowing Him more. When you surrender, or behave with humility or sacrifice, do it with the sole purpose in mind to know Him. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Humility quotes by Ron Suskind
#72. If the opposite of certainty is doubt, humility must lie somewhere between the two, #Quote by Ron Suskind
Humility quotes by David Foster Wallace
#73. [T]o really try to be informed and literate today is to feel stupid nearly all the time, and to need help. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Humility quotes by M*A*S*H Episode Guide Team
#74. Inside that Colonel, there's a private that needs to be cuddled and held just like the rest of us." Hawkeye #Quote by M*A*S*H Episode Guide Team
Humility quotes by Barack Obama
#75. The true test of the American ideal is whether we're able to recognize our failings and then rise together to meet the challenges of our time. Whether we allow ourselves to be shaped by events and history, or whether we act to shape them. Whether chance of birth or circumstance decides life's big winners and losers, or whether we build a community where, at the very least, everyone has a chance to work hard, get ahead, and reach their dreams. #Quote by Barack Obama
Humility quotes by Bryant McGill
#76. Humility puts others first because "first" takes on new meaning through the practice of humility. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Humility quotes by A. Whitney Brown
#77. There are a billion people in China. It's not easy to be an individual in a crowd of more than a billion people. Think of it. More than a billion people. That means even if you're a one-in-a-million type of guy, there are still a thousand guys exactly like you. #Quote by A. Whitney Brown
Humility quotes by Erwin Raphael McManus
#78. Attitude is an accurate monitor of where we fall on the spectrum of pride and humility. #Quote by Erwin Raphael McManus
Humility quotes by Jean-Baptiste Henri Lacordaire

Humility quotes by Dorotheus Of Gaza
#80. In the mercy of God, the little thing done with humility will enable us to be found in the same place as the saints who have labored much and been true servants of God. #Quote by Dorotheus Of Gaza
Humility quotes by Matt Chandler
#81. God doesn't want meerly action but hearts driving action. #Quote by Matt Chandler
Humility quotes by Balroop Singh
#82. You cannot even touch my soul.
So I have emerged stronger,
Kinder, perceptive, forgiving
To embrace you with all the humility. #Quote by Balroop Singh
Humility quotes by Frederick Lenz
#83. If you suffer in love, if you have problems in love, it's because you don't have enough humility. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Humility quotes by Alan W. Hirshfeld
#84. If there was one overriding element to Faraday's character, it was humility. His 'conviction of deficiency,' as he called it, stemmed in part from his deep religiosity and affected practically every facet of his life. Thus Faraday approached both his science and his everyday conduct unhampered by ego, envy, or negative emotion. In his work, he assumed the inevitability of error and failure; whenever possible, he harnessed these as guides toward further investigation. Faraday adhered to no particular school of scientific thought. Nor did he flinch when a favored hypothesis fell to the rigors of experiment. #Quote by Alan W. Hirshfeld
Humility quotes by Simone Weil
#85. Compassion directed toward oneself is true humility. #Quote by Simone Weil
Humility quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#86. We exercise kindness in any moment when we recognize our shared humanity - with all the hopes, dreams, joys, disappointments, vulnerability, and suffering that implies. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Humility quotes by Manning Marable
#87. Socialism lost its way largely when it became decoupled from the processes of democracy. My vision of a socially just society is one that is deeply democratic, that allows people's voices to be heard, where people actually govern. C.L.R James sometimes used the slogan "every cook can govern" to speak to the concept that there should be no hierarchies of power between those who lead and their constituencies. This idea is related to Antonio Gramsci's argument that the goal of the revolutionary party is for every member to be an intellectual. That is, everyone has the capacity, has the ability to articulate a vision of reality and to fight for the realization of their values and goals in society. Gramsci is pointing toward the development of a strategy that is deeply democratic, one where we don't have elitist, vanguardist notions of what society should look like, but have humility and the patience to listen to and learn from working class and poor people, who really are at the center of what any society is. #Quote by Manning Marable
Humility quotes by Unknown Author 47
#88. I do not share the crusading spirit of the professional atheist whose fervor is mostly due to a painful act of liberation from the fetters of religious indoctrination received in youth. I prefer an attitude of humility corresponding to the weakness of our intellectual understanding of nature and of our own being. #Quote by Unknown Author 47
Humility quotes by Paul Antony Jones
#89. But all they are asking is that we learn a little humility, a little respect for what we have. #Quote by Paul Antony Jones
Humility quotes by Henry James
#90. She was a young person of many theories; her imagination was remarkably active. It had been her fortune to possess a finer mind than most of the persons among whom her lot was cast; to have a larger perception of surrounding facts, and to care for knowledge that was tinged with the unfamiliar...It may be affirmed without delay that She was probably very liable to the sin of self-esteem; she often surveyed with complacency the field of her own nature; she was in the habit of taking for granted, on scanty evidence, that she was right; impulsively, she often admired herself...Every now and then she found out she was wrong, and then she treated herself to a week of passionate humility. After this she held her head higher than ever again; for it was of no use, she had an unquenchable desire to think well of herself. She had a theory that it was only on this condition that life was worth living; that one should be one of the best, should be conscious of a fine organization, should move in the realm of light, of natural wisdom, of happy impulse, of inspiration gracefully chronic. #Quote by Henry James
Humility quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#91. 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
Humility quotes by Criss Jami
#92. It's much easier on the emotions when one sees life as an experiment rather than a struggle for popularity. #Quote by Criss Jami
Humility quotes by Maya Angelou
#93. Whenever I'm around some who is modest, I think, 'Run like hell and all of fire.' You don't want modesty, you want humility. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Humility quotes by Svetlana Alliluyeva
#94. Nowhere have I found words more powerful than those in the Psalms. Their fervid poetry cleanses one, gives one strength, brings hope in moments of darkness. Makes one look critically into oneself, convict oneself, and wash one's heart clean with one's own tears. It is the ever-burning fire of love, of gratitude, humility, and truth. #Quote by Svetlana Alliluyeva
Humility quotes by Rashi
#95. We learn from here the humility of the Holy One, Blessed is He. Since man is in the likeness of the angels, and they would be jealous of him, for this reason, He consulted them. #Quote by Rashi
Humility quotes by Ebenezer Erskine
#96. I think, that a man never passes the verge of moral humility, till self-righteousness be dethroned, till the high and towering imaginations of the man's own righteousness by the law be levelled by the mighty weapons of the gospel, and he brought to submit to the righteousness of God for justification, which is, in the gospel revealed 'from faith to faith.' #Quote by Ebenezer Erskine
Humility quotes by Dan  Fox
#97. The intellectually insecure drop the word "pretentious" to shut down a conversation they don't understand, when simply saying "I don't know" or asking "Can you explain this?" would be more gracious ways to admit to being in the dark. Cutting someone down for pretension reveals, ironically, embarrassed arrogance rather than humility. #Quote by Dan Fox
Humility quotes by Ann Veneman
#98. Kate Otto, like so many in her generation, is committed to being a good global citizen and doing her part to make the world a better place. Everyday Ambassador is a refreshing approach which encourages collaborative work with focus, empathy, humility and patience to better affect positive change in communities throughout the world. #Quote by Ann Veneman
Humility quotes by Debasish Mridha
#99. When you use the power of empathy, love and kindness to heal the humanity, it dances with joy, gratitude, and humility. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Humility quotes by Robert Breault
#100. Few are humble, for it takes a self-esteem few possess. #Quote by Robert Breault
Humility quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#101. Nothing sets a Christian so much out of the devil's reach than humility. #Quote by Jonathan Edwards
Humility quotes by Mark Vonnegut
#102. It's probably possible to gain humility by means other than repeated humiliation, but repeated humiliation works very well. #Quote by Mark Vonnegut
Humility quotes by James Comey
#103. In that moment, something else occurred to me: The "leader of the free world," the self-described great business tycoon, didn't understand leadership. Ethical leaders never ask for loyalty. Those leading through fear – like a Cosa Nostra boss- require personal loyalty. Ethical leaders care deeply about those they lead, and offer them honesty and decency, commitment and their own sacrifice. They have a confidence that breeds humility. Ethical leaders know their own talent but fear their own limitations-to understand and reason, to see the world as it is and not as they wish it to be. They speak the truth and know that making wise decisions requires people to tell them the truth. And to get that truth, they create an environment of high standards and deep consideration – "love" is not too strong a word – that builds lasting bonds and makes extraordinary achievement possible. It would never occur to an ethical leader to ask for loyalty. #Quote by James Comey
Humility quotes by Dara Horn
#104. I mean that we control the way we remember the past, and that's what matters in the present. We choose what is worthy of our memory. We should probably be grateful that we can't remember everything as God does, because if we did, we would find it impossible to forgive anyone. The limit of human memory encourages humility. #Quote by Dara Horn
Humility quotes by Stefan Fatsis
#105. Plimpton was a presence. He looked for ways in which he could make himself ridiculous. That made him a great storyteller. #Quote by Stefan Fatsis
Humility quotes by Thomas Merton
#106. The mission of Christian humility in social life is not merely to edify, but to keep minds open to many alternatives. The rigidity of a certain type of Christian thought has seriously impaired this capacity, which nonviolence must recover. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Humility quotes by Robert Lane Greene
#107. I think flexibility, humility, and multilingualism should take the place of sticklerism, arrogance, and nationalism when we think about language. I #Quote by Robert Lane Greene
Humility quotes by Ryan Holiday
#108. True will is quiet humility, resilience, and flexibility; the other kind of will is weakness disguised by bluster and ambition. #Quote by Ryan Holiday
Humility quotes by Brother Lawrence
#109. It is not necessary for being with GOD to be always at church: we may make an oratory of our heart wherein to retire from time to time to converse with Him in meekness, humility and love. Every one is capable of such familiar conversation with GOD, some more, some less: He knows what we can do. Let us begin, then. Perhaps #Quote by Brother Lawrence
Humility quotes by Emi Kihslinger
#110. Never lose your fierce idealism. Let it be tempered by pragmatism, humility, and a willingness to learn, but never let anyone tell you that the better world you imagine is not possible. It is, through the power of partnership. #Quote by Emi Kihslinger
Humility quotes by Gautama Buddha
#111. Buddhas and Bodhisattvas will for seven days appear to you in their benign and peaceful aspect. Their light will shine upon you, ... Wonderful and delightful though they are, The Buddhas may nevertheless frighten you. Do not give in to your fright! Do not run away! Serenely contemplate the spectacle before you! Overcome your fear, and feel no desire! Realize that these are the rays of the grace of the Buddhas, who come to receive you into their Buddha-realms. Pray to them with intense faith and humility, ... #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Humility quotes by Agatha Christie
#112. The belief in a superstratum of human beings ... is the most evil of all beliefs. For when you say, 'I am not as other men'
you have lost the two most valuable qualities we have ever tried to attain:
humility and brotherhood. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Humility quotes by Bill Bright
#113. Fasting with a pure heart and motives, I have discovered, brings personal revival and adds power to our prayers. Personal revival occurs because fasting is an act of humility. Fasting gives opportunity for deeper humility as we recognize our sins, repent, receive God's forgiveness, and experience His cleansing of our soul and spirit. Fasting also demonstrates our love for God and our full confidence in His faithfulness. #Quote by Bill Bright
Humility quotes by Prince Andrew
#114. There is something about going to sea. A little bit of discipline, self-discipline and humility are required. #Quote by Prince Andrew
Humility quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#115. To save myself I must face myself, which may be the hardest of all things to face. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Humility quotes by Tosha Michelle
#116. It is only through love, tolerance, humility and the understanding of our own fragility that we can begin to find our humanity and, in turn, extend that humanity to others. #Quote by Tosha Michelle
Humility quotes by Eckhart Tolle
#117. There have been many people for whom limitations, failure, loss, or pain in whatever form turned out to be their greatest teacher. It taught them to let go of false self-images and superficial ego-dictated goals and desires. It gave them depth, humility and compassion. It made them more real. #Quote by Eckhart Tolle
Humility quotes by Albert Einstein
#118. E idea of a personal God is quite alien to me and seems even naive. However, I am also not a "Freethinker" in the usual sense of the word because I find that this is in the main an attitude nourished exclusively by an opposition against naive superstition. My feeling is insofar religious as I am imbued with the consciousness of the insuffiency of the human mind to understand deeply the harmony of the Universe which we try to formulate as "laws of nature." It is this consciousness and humility I miss in the Freethinker mentality. Sincerely yours, Albert Einstein. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Humility quotes by Austin Fischer
#119. Faith, doubt, humility, and confidence - this is the stuff and substance of theology at its best. Swagger, smugness, and certainty - this is the stuff and substance of ideology at its worst. #Quote by Austin Fischer
Humility quotes by Mark The Evangelist
#120. Do not become a disciple of one who praises himself, in case you learn pride instead of humility. #Quote by Mark The Evangelist
Humility quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#121. There is no way to genuinely, powerfully, truly love yourself while crafting a mask of perfection. I know, you know, we all know - it's hard to let your pimples and your flaws be seen. It's hard to stumble and bumble. It's hard to not know the right things to do or say. It's hard to not look like TV.

Sometimes, it's really hard for me to be the awkward mess that I am when I'm authentic, instead of having runway authenticity - all natural, but flawless. But every time I allow that to be okay, not just around myself but around others - I affirm something to myself. I affirm, to myself more than anyone else, that I am lovable and acceptable unconditionally. I affirm that it's okay to take on and take in all the flavours and hues of human experience, and not just the ones that are acceptable in this culture, in this time, in this place.

And that kind of acceptance, that kind of love - that's the kind of love that creates miracles. That's the kind of love I really need. That's the kind of love that makes approval taste like cardboard. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Humility quotes by C.S. Lewis
#122. The pretence leads up to the real thing. When you are not feeling particularly friendly but know you ought to be, the best thing you can do, very often, is put on a friendly manner and behave as if you were a nicer person than you actually are. And in a few minutes, as we have all noticed, you will be really feeling friendlier than you were. Very often the only way to get a quality in reality is to start behaving as if you had it already. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Humility quotes by Jonathan Edwards
#123. 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
Humility quotes by Corrie Ten Boom
#124. If you want to hear God's voice clearly and you are uncertain, then remain in His presence until He changes this uncertainty. Often much can happen during this waiting for the Lord. Sometimes, He changes pride into humility; doubt into faith and peace; sometimes lust into purity. The Lord can and will do it. #Quote by Corrie Ten Boom
Humility quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#125. You must stop looking at the world through your head. You must look through your heart, instead. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Humility quotes by Carlo Rovelli
#126. Science is born from this act of humility: not trusting blindly in our past knowledge and our intuition. Not believing what everyone says. Not having absolute faith in the accumulated knowledge of our fathers and grandfathers. We learn nothing if we think we already know the essentials, if we assume that they were written in a book or known by the elders of the tribe. The centuries in which people had faith in what they believed were the centuries in which little new was learned. Had they trusted the knowledge of their fathers, Einstein, Newton, and Copernicus would never have called things into question and would never have been able to move our knowledge forward (259, trsl. Carnell & Segre) #Quote by Carlo Rovelli
Humility quotes by William Hendriksen
#127. When grace changes the heart, submission out of fear changes to submission out of love, and true humility is born. #Quote by William Hendriksen
Humility quotes by Idries Shah
#128. When humility is exercised, people begin to realise that they do not, as it were, exist at all. #Quote by Idries Shah
Humility quotes by Hannah Mary Rothschild
#129. ...love is as much an art as painting or living; it requires practice, finesse, determination, humility, energy and delicacy. #Quote by Hannah Mary Rothschild
Humility quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#130. We are so conceited and so unproud. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Humility quotes by Fiorella De Maria
#131. Just show a little humility. If you know your weaknesses you will not be enslaved by them. #Quote by Fiorella De Maria
Humility quotes by Will Durant
#132. The qualities of character can be arranged in triads, in each of which the first and last qualities will be extremes and vices, and the middle quality a virtue or an excellence. So between cowardice and rashness is courage; between stinginess and extravagance is liberality; between sloth and greed is ambition; between humility and pride is modesty; between secrecy and loquacity, honesty; between moroseness and buffoonery, good humor; between quarrelsomeness and flattery, friendship; between Hamlet's indecisiveness and Quixote's impulsiveness is self-control.49 "Right," then, in ethics or conduct, is not different from "right" in mathematics or engineering; it means correct, fit, what works best to the best result. The #Quote by Will Durant
Humility quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#133. 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
Humility quotes by Steve Carlsson
#134. Through all the years of considered opinion and thoughtful contribution that offers to explain the human condition, we are yet to see evidence of change which reflects the intent of that wisdom and thought. Until the wisdom offered is no longer required, humanity is destined to build fragile civilizations. This fragility, demonstrated through the ages, arises from an ongoing rejection of humility that, if nurtured, would form a foundation of connectedness and solidarity between people. On this foundation, a lasting future would be written into our history books (Steve Carlsson 2013). #Quote by Steve Carlsson
Humility quotes by Bryant McGill
#135. In reverent pauses, when we slow down and think about the gift of life, we may briefly touch humility. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Humility quotes by Kirk Gollwitzer
#136. Every author loves to read his own words. #Quote by Kirk Gollwitzer
Humility quotes by Criss Jami
#137. Love without humility results in the inclination to act as everyone's parent, humility without love results in the need to be everyone's child, and love with humility results in the desire to be a friend. #Quote by Criss Jami
Humility quotes by Philip Zaleski
#138. Self-deprecation is the appropriate response of any new convert, as he matches his stained soul against the purity of God. #Quote by Philip Zaleski
Humility quotes by Louis De Montfort
#139. Chosen soul, how will you bring this about? What steps will you take to reach the high level to which God is calling you? The means of holiness and salvation are known to everybody, since they are found in the Gospel; the masters of the spiritual life have explained them; the Saints have practiced them ... These means are: sincere humility, unceasing prayer, complete self-denial, abandonment to Divine Providence, and obedience to the will of God. #Quote by Louis De Montfort
Humility quotes by George H. W. Bush
#140. There is but one just use of power, and it is to serve people. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Humility quotes by Avijeet Das
#141. There will be people who will attack you and your convictions. You cannot bow down to them. Accept with humility if anything is right and move on. Don't waste your time in proving others wrong! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Humility quotes by Frederick Lenz
#142. Without humility you can't love. Love means looking beyond the self to the other. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Humility quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#143. Love's hearts are faithful, but not fond,
Bound for the just, but not beyond;
Not glad, as the low-loving herd,
Of self in other still preferred,
But they have heartily designed
The benefit of broad mankind.
And they serve men austerely,
After their own genius, clearly,
Without a false humility. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Humility quotes by Evinda Lepins
#144. The 'HIGHway' to peace is humility! #Quote by Evinda Lepins
Humility quotes by Dag Hammarskjold
#145. Humility before the flower at the timber line is the gate which gives access to the path up the open fell. #Quote by Dag Hammarskjold
Humility quotes by Sun Tzu
#146. I have three treasures that I keep and prize: one is kindness, second is frugality, and third is not presuming to take precedence over others. By kindness one can be brave, by frugality one can reach out, and by not presuming to take precedence one can survive effectively. If one gives up kindness and courage, gives up frugality and breadth, and gives up humility for aggressiveness, one will die. The exercise of kindness in battle leads to victory, the exercise of kindness in defense leads to security. #Quote by Sun Tzu
Humility quotes by Theodore C. Sorensen
#147. Public opinion rarely considers the needs of the next generation or the history of the last. It is frequently hampered by myths and misinformation, by stereotypes and shibboleths, and by an inate resistance to innovation. #Quote by Theodore C. Sorensen
Humility quotes by James MacDonald
#148. The counselee should be aware that you are not God. Better yet, she should be aware that you are aware that you are not God. #Quote by James MacDonald
Humility quotes by Emily R. King
#149. Humility is the most undervalued godly virtue. #Quote by Emily R. King
Humility quotes by Dejan Stojanovic
#150. Even great men bow before the Sun; it melts hubris into humility. #Quote by Dejan Stojanovic
Humility quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#151. True greatness demands humility; the journey draws it from your struggling soul. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Humility quotes by Charles Darwin
#152. Animals, whom we have made our slaves, we do not like to consider our equal. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Humility quotes by Charlie Van Hecke
#153. Ask with Confidence, listen with humility. #Quote by Charlie Van Hecke
Humility quotes by Derek Landy
#154. The man had a smooth voice, like velvet. "I'm Detective Inspector Me. Unusual name, I know. My family were incredibly
narcissistic. I'm lucky I escaped with any degree of humility at all, to be honest, but then I've always managed to exceed expectations. You are Kenny Dunne, are you not?"
"I am."
"Just a few questions for you, Mr Dunne. Or Kenny. Can I call you Kenny? I feel we've become friends these past few seconds. Can I call you Kenny?"
"Sure," Kenny said, slightly baffled.
"Thank you. Thank you very much. It's important you feel comfortable around me, Kenny. It's important we build up a level of trust. That way I'll catch you completely unprepared when I
suddenly accuse you of murder. #Quote by Derek Landy
Humility quotes by Israel Shenker
#155. 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
Humility quotes by Phillip Brooks
#156. 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
Humility quotes by Philip Yancey
#157. Learning humility is a prerequisite for grace. #Quote by Philip Yancey
Humility quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#158. The doctrine of Christ, which teaches love, humility, and self-denial, had always attracted me. But I
found a contrary law, both in the history of the past and in the present organization of our lives – a law
repugnant to my heart, my conscience, and my reason, but one that flattered my animal instincts. I knew
that if I accepted the doctrine of Christ, I should be forsaken, miserable, persecuted, and sorrowing, as
Christ tells us His followers will be. I knew that if I accepted that law of man, I should have the
approbation of my fellow-men; I should be at peace and in safety; all possible sophisms would be at
hand to quiet my conscience and I should 'laugh and be merry,' as Christ says. I felt this, and therefore I
avoided a closer examination of the law of Christ, and tried to comprehend it in a way that should not
prevent my still leading my animal life. But, finding that impossible, I desisted from all attempts at
comprehension. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Humility quotes by Andrew Murray
#159. His humility became our salvation. His salvation is our humility. The life of those who are saved, the saints, must bear this stamp of deliverance from sin and full restoration to their original state; their whole relationship to God and to man marked by an all-pervading humility. Without this there can be no true abiding in God's presence or experience of His favor and the power of His Spirit; without this no abiding faith or love or joy or strength. #Quote by Andrew Murray
Humility quotes by Nelson Mandela
#160. People tend to measure themselves by external accomplishments, but jail allows a person to focus on internal ones; such as honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, generosity and an absence of variety. You learn to look into yourself. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Humility quotes by Matthew Scully
#161. Perhaps that is part of the animals' role among us, to awaken humility, to turn our minds back to the mystery of things, and open our hearts to that most impractical of hopes in which all creation speaks as one. #Quote by Matthew Scully
Humility quotes by Frederick Lenz
#162. When we interact with others the ego manifests. We have to show that we're superior or that we know more, are more spiritual, evolved - or that we're the worst, everyone is better. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Humility quotes by Jane Austen
#163. What had she have to wish for? Nothing but to grow more worthy of him whose intentions and judgment had been ever so superior to her own. #Quote by Jane Austen
Humility quotes by Ed Parker
#164. Humility and self-restraint is the True Objective of Kenpo #Quote by Ed Parker
Humility quotes by Henri Frederic Amiel
#165. There is no respect for others without humility in one's self. #Quote by Henri Frederic Amiel
Humility quotes by Philip K. Dick
#166. And yet now and then he let himself steal a glance at her. Lovely dark colors of her skin, hair, and eyes. We are half-baked compared to them. Allowed out of the kiln before we were fully done. The old aboriginal myth; the truth, there. #Quote by Philip K. Dick
Humility quotes by Frederick Lenz
#167. Don't stand out. Be in a room and remain unnoticed. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Humility quotes by C.S. Lewis
#168. According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Humility quotes by Hazrat Inayat Khan
#169. His constant fight is with the Nafs (self-interest), the root of all disharmony and the only enemy of man. By crushing this enemy man gains mastery over himself; this wins for him mastery over the whole universe, because the wall standing between the self and the Almighty has been broken down. Gentleness, mildness, respect, humility, modesty, self-denial, conscientiousness, tolerance and forgiveness are considered by the Sufi as the attributes which produce harmony within one's own soul as well as within that of another. #Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Humility quotes by David Halberstam
#170. Nixon under pressure turned only to reporters from publications already favorable to him; Kennedy, in trouble, turned to those most critical and dubious of him, and if anything tended to take those already for him a bit for granted. #Quote by David Halberstam
Humility quotes by Dillon Burroughs
#171. Those who wish to stand tallest must kneel lowest. #Quote by Dillon Burroughs
Humility quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#172. 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
Humility quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#173. 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
Humility quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#174. Humility has the toughest hide. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Humility quotes by Gayle D. Erwin
#175. The chief means of resisting manipulation is humility – knowing who we really are and facing it. You can only serve by love. You can only love by choice. True love cannot be the result of decree, force or manipulation. Jesus always kept his strength to make loving choices. He calls us to make loving choices necessary to be the servant of all." "Humility permits me to own my feelings – and to admit them. Now I'm free to say, 'I'm angry'. I'm free to admit what I am reacting to. I am free to ask if anger is what the person wanted to produce in me, and to ask for help in changing if my reaction is inappropriate. #Quote by Gayle D. Erwin
Humility quotes by William S. Burroughs
#176. Humility is indeed beatness, a compulsory virtue that no one exhibits unless he has to. #Quote by William S. Burroughs
Humility quotes by Eugene Cernan
#177. One of the most important things about the geology on the moon is your descriptions of what you see, comparing them to things that you've seen on Earth so that the geologists and the scientists on the ground would know what you're talking about; and then take pictures of them. #Quote by Eugene Cernan
Humility quotes by Alice Childress
#178. dear little baby of the folks I work for, I got a present for you .. my whole damn life! I'm handin' it over to you & your ma & pa. if you got no money to pay, I wanna stay anyhow, my pleasure is to wait on you forever. to hell with my children & hooray for you!.. you stayin' up all night fixin' up Character Parts for me! givin' 'em what you call dignity! dignity! you know what your dignity is? a black straw hat with a flower stickin' up in front, hands folded cross my stomach, sayin' the same damn fool things .. only nice & easy & proper!" --trouble in mind (1955) #Quote by Alice Childress
Humility quotes by Laozi
#179. The best soldiers are not warlike; the best fighters do not lose their temper. The greatest conquerors are those who overcome their enemies without strife. The greatest directors of men are those who yield place to others. This is called the Virtue of not striving, the capacity for directing mankind; this is being the compeer of Heaven. It was the highest goal of the ancients. #Quote by Laozi
Humility quotes by Brandon Mull
#180. False humility is more insulting than open pride! #Quote by Brandon Mull
Humility quotes by Lidia Longorio
#181. Those who find gratitude in the little things find
humility in the big things. #Quote by Lidia Longorio
Humility quotes by Katherine Mansfield
#182. I sometimes wonder whether the act of surrender is not one of the greatest of all - the highest. It is one of the [most] difficult of all ... You see it's so immensely complicated. It needs real humility and at the same time, an absolute belief in one's own essential freedom. It is an act of faith. At the last moments, like all great acts, it is pure risk. This is true for me as a human being and as a writer. Dear Heaven, how hard it is to let go - to step into the blue. And yet one's creative life depends on it and one desires to do nothing else. #Quote by Katherine Mansfield
Humility quotes by Megan Phelps-Roper
#183. Doubt was nothing more than an epistemological humility: a deep and practical awareness that outside our sphere of knowledge there existed information and experiences that might show our position to be in error. Doubt causes us to hold a strong position a bit more loosely, such that an acknowledgment of ignorance or error doesn't crush our sense of self or leave us totally unmoored if our position proves untenable. Certainty is the opposite: it hampers inquiry and hinders growth. It teaches us to ignore evidence that contradicts our ideas, and encourages us to defend our position at all costs, even as it reveals itself as indefensible. Certainty sees compromise as weak, hypocritical, evil, suppressing empathy and allowing us to justify inflicting horrible pain on others. #Quote by Megan Phelps-Roper
Humility quotes by Randy Alcorn
#184. To turn the tide of materialism in the Christian community, we desperately need bold models of kingdom-centered living. Despite our need to do it in a way that doesn't glorify people, we must hear each other's stories about giving or else our people will not learn to give. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Humility quotes by Christina Haag
#185. What he aimed for, and succeeded some days in attaining was the remarkable equipoise of humility and confidence that is grace. #Quote by Christina Haag
Humility quotes by James Tate
#186. In You Are Not Dead Wendy Xu breaks all the old rules that have never done us any favors anyway. She writes beautifully, noticing who we are, and letting us see ourselves with a little more humanity, a little more humor, a little more humility. I'm happy to have read this book. #Quote by James Tate
Humility quotes by Rick Joyner
#187. 13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by his good behavior his works in the humility of wisdom. #Quote by Rick Joyner
Humility quotes by Karen Traviss
#188. I've never met a soldier who knew he was a hero. It's not false modesty. They simply decide to do something that they know they must do, usually for there comrades, because if they don't, those people will suffer in some way. For them, that compulsion is far stronger than any fear. The fact we find it exceptional is a sad indictment of the human race. I'd like to live in a world of heroes. If we did, there would be no wars. #Quote by Karen Traviss
Humility quotes by Jason Versey
#189. I believe a man's finest hour often comes when he is at his weakest. When he is broken, affronted and at a place of great emotional transparency. It's there he has the rare insight of an inescapable truth…he's merely a man. As his bravado washes away into a puddle of reflective tears, it reveals that he is merely flesh, blood and bones and amounts to very little without the love and guidance of our creator. It's only then, that I believe, a man begins to truly find his way. #Quote by Jason Versey
Humility quotes by Thomas Of Villanova
#190. 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
Humility quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#191. If I had one sermon to preach, it would be a sermon against Pride. The more I see of existence...the more I am convinced of the reality of the old religious thesis, that all evil began with some attempt at superiority; some moment when, as we might say, the very skies were cracked across like a mirror, because there was a sneer in Heaven. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Humility quotes by Thomas Watson
#192. Humility was never a loser. #Quote by Thomas Watson
Humility quotes by Vance Havner
#193. We justify ourselves when we should judge ourselves. If we learned humility, it might spare us the humiliation. #Quote by Vance Havner
Humility quotes by Radhanath Swami
#194. Our humble service attitude in our life is what determines what effect chanting will have on our consciousness. Otherwise we can be chanting for millions and millions of births before we actually achieve the goal. #Quote by Radhanath Swami
Humility quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#195. It's an universal law
intolerance is the first sign of an inadequate education. An ill-educated person behaves with arrogant impatience, whereas truly profound education breeds humility. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Humility quotes by Paul Of The Cross
#196. He that rises after his falls, with confidence in God and profound humility of heart, will become, in God's hands, a proper instrument for the accomplishment of great things; but he who acts otherwise can never do any good. #Quote by Paul Of The Cross
Humility quotes by Criss Jami
#197. False humility is quite like the worst of both worlds: both that of Meekness and that of Conceit. #Quote by Criss Jami
Humility quotes by C.S. Lewis
#198. Man approaches God most nearly when he is in one sense least like God. For what can be more unlike than fullness and need, sovereignty and humility, righteousness and penitence, limitless power and a cry for help? #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Humility quotes by Dina Rolle
#199. One of the greatest lesson is humility. Humility is like oxygen to the soul. You won't get too far without it! #Quote by Dina Rolle
Humility quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#200. God reveals His plans only to humble people. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
