    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...

    Good looks, youthfulness,

    wealth, education, name, fame, status, prestige, recognition because of acknowledged talents, friends and family, it can all blind oneself with arrogance and stimulate indecency and rudeness.
