    Humility Is Sexy.

    I don't think there is anything more attractive and comforting then knowing someone who realizes that they are not the center of the universe. I feel that people like this appreciate life and the relationships that they have a lot more. Some of the arrogance that people have make...

    Humility and Patience

    Aggression easily sprouts from fear, and the fear of being incorrect is alive and well.  There is a stigma attached to being ignorant of something, and generally people do well to uphold this.  Its a strange system;  one in which we fear to be students out of pride...
