Humility Quotes

Oscar Wilde

Alvin Toffler

Mary Bertone
From error to error, one discovers the entire truth.
Sigmund Freud
Nothing is more damaging to a new truth than an old error.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Jane Addams

King Henry IV of France
'It is destiny' - phrase of the weak human heart 'It is destiny' - dark apology for every error The strong and virtuous admit no destiny.
E. R. Bulwer-Lytton
If being wealthy is taken to mean having the means to satisfy one's every want, all but the very poor can become rich as thou at a single stroke of a magician's wand, simply by ceasing to want more than is really necessary for sustaining life. By being content with little and not giving a rap for what the neighbours think, one can attain a very large measure of freedom, shedding care and worry in a trice.
John Blofeld
Real excellence and humility are not incompatible one with the other, on the contrary they are twin sisters.
Jean Baptiste Lacordaire
My son is 7 years old. I am 54. It has taken me a great many years to reach that age. I am more respected in the community, I am stronger, I am more intelligent and I think I am better than he is. I don't want to be a pal, I want to be a father.
Clifton Paul Fadiman
