A Quote by E. James (Jim) Rohn on arrogance, boldness, challenge, humility, humor, kindness, laziness, leadership, rudeness, timidity, and weakness

The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.

A Quote by Jim Nollman on balance, benevolence, certainty, conscience, control, ecology, garden, grace, humility, imagination, respect, separation, and service

As the biocentric view suggests, the garden prospers when control is balanced by equal measures of humility and benevolence. A balance is struck. Control, servitude, respect, imagination, pragmatism, an ecological conscience, compliance, and a certain measure of mysticism and altruism all meld together to provide nurturance. Try to separate the various aspects into their constituent parts - grant any one of them the status of fundamental gardening definition and one soon skews the entire process. Put them back together again in the service of the two-way street called nurturance, and we express the state of grace called gardening.

A Quote by Jane Austen on appearance, boasts, and humility

Nothing is more deceitful than the appearance of humility. It is often only carelessness of opinion, and sometimes an indirect boast.

A Quote by Jackie Mason on action, acting, faith, glory, god, humility, love, rules, self-denial, and strength

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?

A Quote by Clive Staples (Jack) Lewis on christianity, conceit, devil, evil, god, greed, humility, lies, mind, morality, opposites, pride, teachers, vices, and virtue

The vice I am talking about is Pride or Self-Conceit: and the virtue opposite to it, in Christian morals, is called Humility. You may remember, when I was talking about sexual morality, I warned you that the centre of Christian morals did not lie there. Well, now we have come to the centre. According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride. Unchastity, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere flea-bites in comparison: it was through Pride that the devil became the devil: Pride leads to every other vice: it is the complete anti-God state of mind.

A Quote by J. C. Ryle on christianity, day, humility, love, men, mystery, understanding, and world

Humility and love are precisely the graces which the men of the world can understand, if they do not comprehend doctrines. They are the graces about which there is no mystery, and they are within reach of all classes... [The poorest] Christian can every day find occasion for practicing love and humility.
