Two quotes on HA‘AHA‘A, the value of humility
William Temple, once the Archbishop of Canterbury:
“Humility does not mean thinking less of yourself than of other people, nor does it mean having a low opinion of your own gifts. It means freedom from thinking about yourself at all.”
and from Frederick L. Collins:
Always remember there are two types of people in this world.
Those who come into a room and say, “Well, here I am!”
And those who come in and say, “Ah, there you are!”
Taken from: In search of the ultimate freedom
