“Greatness is not found in possessions, power, position, or prestige. It is discovered in goodness, humility, service, and character.”

~ William Arthur Ward

Once when George Washington was riding near Washington city with a group of friends, their horses leaped over a wall. One steed kicked off a number of stones.

"Better replace them" suggested the General.

"Oh, let the farmer do it," replied the friends.

When the riding party was over, Washington turned his horses back the way they had come. Dismounting at the wall, he carefully replaced the stones.

"Oh General," said a companion, "you are too big to do that."

"On the contrary," answered Washington, "I am the right size."

 

 

Humility : Lily of the valley. Spring flower. “Humility makes great men twice honourable”

~Benjamin Franklin

 

Humility : a white burning candle with black background“Humility is the foundation of all the other virtues hence, in the soul in which this virtue does not exist there cannot be any other virtue except in mere appearance.”

~ Saint Augustine

 

Humility : Angel, necropolis, 19 century P.S:Life becomes so simple when one realises that one is neither too big nor too small for anything.

So instead of getting into the rightness or wrongness of everything,why not just BE all of who we were created to be???
