A Quote by Louisa May Alcott on charm, conceit, danger, genius, gifts, good, goodness, modesty, needs, power, and talent

You have a good many little gifts and virtues, but there is no need of parading them, for conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long, and the great charm of all power is modesty.

Louisa May Alcott (1832 - 1888)
