We people are sparks inclined to mistake ourselves for galaxies. There is truth in the indentification of spark with galaxy, but a truth is true only when its limits are observed. Humility is the observation of this particular truth, the fundamental truth of relationship between finite part and infinite whole.


Humility is proactive humiliation. Do it yourself or it will be done to you.
