The Power of Humility

A great man is always willing to be little.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Humility is wisdom’s prerequisite.
Bobby Bowden

Humility leads to strength and not to weakness. It is the highest form of self-respect to admit mistakes and to make amends for them.
John McCloy

A great man shows his greatness by the way he treats little men.
Thomas Carlyle

When someone asked Saint Francis of Assisi why and how he could accomplish so much, he replied: “The Lord looked down from heaven upon the earth and said, ‘Where can I find the weakest, the littlest, the poorest man on the face of the earth?’ Then He saw me and said, ‘I will work through him. He won’t be proud of it. He’ll see that I am only using him because of his littleness and insignificance.’”
C. Reuben Anderson
