humility

"Humility does not consist in having a worse opinion of ourselves than we deserve."
-- William Law

"I am always very glad that my slanderers should tell a trifling lie about me rather than the whole terrible truth."
-- St. Teresa of Avila

"For thus says the One who is high and lifted up,
who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
'I dwell in the high and holy place,
and also with him who is of a contrite and lowly spirit,
to revive the spirit of the lowly,
and to revive the heart of the contrite.'"
-- Isaiah 57.15
