A Quote by Thomas Szasz on humble, humility, ego, children, age, learning, self-importance, vanity, and self-esteem

Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one's self-esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily; and why older persons, especially if vain or important, cannot learn at all.

Thomas Szasz (1920 - ?)

A Quote by Saba Sophiya Hasan on liberty, self-discovery, self-knowledge, humility, self-respect, success, and acceptance

Let the river flow and you will be liberated. Let yourself go with current and you will find yourself. Let the wind so blow and you will be able to break yourself free very much like a ripened fruit of self-respect that sheds itself away from the tree of dependence. Let yourself be blown away humbling as a fallen petal and you will find yourself above the lowly dust of ground, to finally discover the truth of your existence for yourself.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on life and humility

What honor can there be without humility?
           What heights can be reached without being low?

The pieces of a chariot are useless
             unless the work in accordance with the whole
A man's life brings nothing
             unless he lives in accordance with the whole universe
Playing one's part
          in accordance with the universe
          is true humility

So whether you're a gem in the royal court
       or a stone on the common path
If you accept your part with humility
       the glory of the universe will be yours

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on humility, ego, and gratitude

In the spiritual life the easiest way to conquer ego is to offer gratitude to God for five minutes daily. If you cannot offer gratitude for five minutes, then utter it for one minute. Offer your gratitude to God. Then you will feel that inside you a sweet, fragrant and beautiful flower is growing. That is the flower of humility.
