    Those who boast and are proud,

    will be made the lowest. Those who humble themselves, who make themselves low, will be exalted above all others. The first shall be last and the last shall be first. Those who are overlooked will be made rulers. Those who are trodden under the feet of the haughty will rejoice...

    I'm trying to understand.

    I've been told that I am humble, but at times I can act with arrogance. I'm trying to learn to have humility and learn what distinguishes it from self-protection. I'm studying empathy, I'm trying not to be judgemental--I value all these assets and believe it will help me become...

    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...

    Better Far Better To Be Humble

    I find it simple and better just to leave as much of my EGO at the door, when I interact with people. More often you will go farther than if you feel that you have to defend everything you do. Case in point. I was at the DMV today. How it works is they give you a coded number and...

    Seems like it comes along with goodwill
