humility

Humility quotes
Humility
Pride perceiving humility honorable, often borrows her cloak.

- Fuller, Thomas
There is something about going to sea. A little bit of discipline, self-discipline and humility are required.

To abolish the superstition, the misrule, the vice, the misery of this world. That is what Christ will do in the day when He has put all enemies under His feet. That is what Christ has been doing, step by step, ever since that day when first He came to do His Father's will on earth in great humility. Therefore, that is what we must do, each in our place and station, if we be indeed His subjects, fellow-workers with Him in the improvement of the human race, fellow-soldiers with Him in the battle against evil.

- All Saints' Day Sermons. 1867.
I believe that the first test of a truly great man is his humility. I don't mean by humility, doubt of his power. But really great men have a curious feeling that the greatness is not of them, but through them. And they see something divine in every other man and are endlessly, foolishly, incredibly merciful.

- John Ruskin
The proud man counts his newspaper clippings, the humble man his blessings.

- Sheen, Fulton John

By these things examine thyself. By whose rules am I acting; in whose name; in whose strength; in whose glory? What faith, humility, self-denial, and love of God and to man have there been in all my actions?

- Jackie Mason
Blessed, thrice blessed, is it to find that hero-worship is not yet passed away! that the heart of man still beats young and fresh; that the old tales of David and Jonathan, Damon and Pythias, Socrates and Alcibiades, Shakespeare and his nameless friend, of love "passing the love of woman," ennobled by its own humility, deeper than death and mightier than the grave, can still blossom out, if it be but in one heart here and there, to show man still how, sooner or later, "he that loveth knoweth God, for God is love."

- Miscellanies. 1850.
If only I had a little humility, I'd be perfect.

- Turner, Ted
Christianity, with its doctrine of humility, of forgiveness, of love, is incompatible with the state, with its haughtiness, its violence, its punishment and its wars.

- Tolstoy, Count Leo
You couldn't be that good and not know it, somewhere in your secret heart, however much you'd been abused into affecting public humility.

- Lois McMaster Bujold
There are few efforts more conducive to humility than that of the translator trying to communicate an incommunicable beauty. Yet, unless we do try, something unique and never surpassed will cease to exist except in the libraries of a few inquisitive book lovers.

- Hamilton, Edith
Conformity, humility, acceptance... with these coins we are to pay our fares to paradise.

He that humbleth himself wishes to be exalted.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
