Humility

John Chrysostom

Humility leaves us free to obey happily.  So long as we yield humbly to another we overcome ourselves in our hearts, we overcome our own selfishness and break its enslaving bonds.

G. K. Chesterton

Humility is the mother of giants. One sees great things from the valley; only small things from the peak.

Jane Francis de Chantal

I have considered all methods of governing and I have finally seen that the best is that which is amiable, sincere, humble, and patient.

Albert Einstein

Possessions, outward success, publicity, luxury – to me these have always been contemptible. I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for everyone, best for both the body and the mind.

Harry Truman

It is amazing what you can accomplish if you don’t care who gets the credit.

J.M. Mason

A zealous soul without meekness is like a ship in a storm, in danger of wrecks. A meek soul without zeal, is like a ship in a calm, that moves not so fast as it ought.

Author Unknown (from Teen Creed)

Be humble enough to obey, you may be the one giving orders someday.

Francis De Sales

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them—every day begin the task anew.

St. Augustine

It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.

Orrin Woodward

Ingratitude produces pride while gratitude produces humility.

William Arthur Ward

Greatness is not found in possessions, power, position, or prestige. It is discovered in goodness, humility, service, and character.

Orrin Woodward

Find a victory in every defeat to remain hopeful and find a defeat in every victory to remain humble.

C.S. Lewis

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A great man is always willing to be little.
