Favorite Humility And Being Humble Quotes

1. "All virtues are less formidable to us once the man is aware that he has them, but this is specially true of humility. Catch him at the moment when he is really poor in spirit, and smuggle into his mind the gratifying reflection, "By jove! I'm being humble!" and almost immediately pride- pride at his own humility- will appear."
Author: C.S. Lewis
2. "The antidote for pride is humility; meekness; submissiveness...Let us choose to be humble.We can choose to humble ourselves byconquering enmity toward our brothers and sisters,esteeming them as ourselves,and lifting them as high or higher than we are...We can choose to humble ourselvesby receiving counsel and chastisement...We can choose to humble ourselves byforgiving those who have offended us...We can choose to humble ourselves byrendering selfless service...We can chose to humble ourselves bygoing on missions and preaching the word that can humble others...We can choose to humble ourselves bygetting to the temple more frequently...We can choose to humble ourselves byconfessing and forsaking our sins and being born of God...We can choose to humble ourselves by loving God,submitting our will to His, and putting Him first in our lives"
Author: Ezra Taft Benson
3. "The average pagan, like the average agnostic, would merely say that he was content with himself, but so insolently self-satisfied, that there were many better and many worse ... This proper pride does not lift the heart like the tongue of trumpets; you cannot go glad in crimson and gold for this. On the other hand, this mild rationalist modesty does not cleanse the soul with fire and make it clear like crystal; it does not (like a strict and searching humility) make a man as a little child, who can sit at the feet of the grass. It does not make him look up and see marvels ... Thus it loses both the poetry of being proud and the poetry of being humble."
Author: G.K. Chesterton
4. "No one is charismatic. Someone becomes charismatic in history, socially. The question for me is once again the problem of humility. If the leader discovers that he is becoming charismatic not because of his or her qualities but because mainly he or she is being able to express the expectations of a great mass of people, then he or she is much more of a translator of the aspirations and dreams of the people, instead of being the creator of the dreams. In expressing the dreams, he or she is recreating these dreams. If he or she is humble, I think that the danger of power would diminish."
Author: Myles Horton
5. "Pride is a human nature and it's good for people to be proud of themselves, achievements, etc. but too much of anything is not healthy. Humble is pride exhibited through humility, so be humble and prideful about being humble."
Author: Uzoma Nnadi
