Lao Tzu“I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize. The first is gentleness; the second is frugality; the third is humility, which keeps me from putting myself before others. Be gentle and you can be bold; be frugal and you can be liberal; avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader among men.”
― Lao Tzu

George Washington 

–An embodiment of Service & Humility

 

Many years ago, a rider came across some soldiers who were trying to move a heavy log of wood without success.

The corporal was standing by as the men struggled. The rider asked the corporal why he wasn’t helping. The corporal replied: "I am the corporal. I give orders."

The rider dismounted, went up and stood by the soldiers and as they tried to lift the wood, he helped them. With his help, the task was carried out. The rider was George Washington, the Commander-in-chief.

He quietly mounted his horse and went to the corporal and said, "The next time your men need help, send for the commander-in-chief."

 

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

 

“True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.”― C.S. Lewis

 

Humility : a white burning candle with black backgroundP.S: The higher the post,the more humble the person;the lower the post the higher the ego. We get to see evidence of both in our daily lives.
