The lack of humility is an evil; but the presence of humility is not a virtue.
True humility is nothing more than self-realization.
The pursuit of humility is the pursuit of vanity, for it is a personal quality to be admired by others.
The pursuit of humility is what the Bible calls “voluntary humility” (Col. 2:18) and is a diadem to be worn by pride. Pride seeks humility as a disguise for spiritual ambition.
Humility achieved through desire is self-deception and hypocrisy. The truly humble care nothing for it, but only recognize it in others.
Humility is revealed in sacrificial, compassionate service, not in self-promoting self-effacement.
True humility is not a virtue to be sought; rather it is the admission of need as one turns to God or submits to others.
