humility

A Quote by Joel S. Goldsmith on god, humility, and prayer

For countless years, their only answer must have been, "This one great God does nothing for us but let us live and die in slavery." And so it was until one among them, in humility, opened himself to God.

Joel Goldsmith

A Quote by Christopher Knight on planet and humility

The little planet we occupy has orbited a minor star on the fringes of a rather average galaxy in a universe of unimaginable vastness for over 4.5 billion years, yet our particular species of primate arrived on the scene very recently indeed.  It is humbling to realize that, when we liken the age of the earth to the life-span of an average person, mankind has existed for less than the time it takes to say 'Homo sapiens'.

A Quote by Norman Vincent Peale on ability, belief, confidence, faith, happiness, humility, and success

Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.

A Quote by Mother Teresa on death, duty, god, humility, people, play, pride, sleep, and trust

If you are discouraged it is a sign of pride, because it shows you trust in your own powers. Never bother about other people's opinions. Be humble and you will never be disturbed. Remember St. Aloysius, who said he would continue to play billiards even if he knew he was going to die. Do you play well? Sleep well? Eat well? These are duties. Nothing is small for God.

Mother Teresa (1910 - 1998)

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on humility and time

The humbleness of a warrior is not the humbleness of the beggar. The warrior lowers his head to no one, but at the same time, he doesn't permit anyone to lower his head to him. The beggar, on the other hand, falls to his knees at the drop of a hat and scrapes the floor to anyone he deems to be higher; but at the same time, he demands that someone lower than him scrape the floor for him.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on certainty, confidence, humility, men, and self-confidence

The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity.

A Quote by William Somerset Maugham on bitterness, cruelty, failure, humility, ideas, kindness, people, success, and tolerance

The common idea that success spoils people by making them vain, egotistic, and self-complacent is erroneous; on the contrary, it makes them, for the most part, humble, tolerant, and kind. Failure makes people cruel and bitter.

William Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965)
