Humility will take you places arrogance won’t.
Humility is “having a clear perspective, and therefore respect, for one’s place in context.” (Wikipedia.org) Having a bird’s-eye-view of life will help you gain context, and remembering one’s fundamental limitations as a human being will facilitate a clear perspective of one’s place in the universe. We are all flawed, human beings, and yet, we must remember to strive for lofty goals to better ourselves.
“Be humble for you are made of earth. Be noble for you are made of stars.”
