It is very difficult for the prosperous to be humble.

And it is always the humble man who talks too much; the proud man watches himself too closely
True humility is contentment
There is no respect for others without humility in one's self
The unassuming youth seeking instruction with humility gains good fortune
Plenty of people wish to become devout, but no one wishes to be humble
The higher we are placed, the more humbly we should walk
He that humbleth himself wishes to be exalted
Give unto me, made lowly wise,
The spirit of self-sacrifice;
The confidence of reason give,
And in the light of truth thy bondman let me live!

Ode to Duty
O son, thou hast not true humility,
The highest virtue, mother of them all;
But her thou hast not know; for what is this?
Thou thoughtest of thy prowess and thy sins
Thou hast not lost thyself to save thyself.

Sir Galahad, Complete Poetical Works of Tennyson


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
