“These are the few ways we can practice humility:
To speak as little as possible of one’s self.
To mind one’s own business.
Not to want to manage other people’s affairs.
To avoid curiosity.
To accept contradictions and correction cheerfully.
To pass over the mistakes of others.
To accept insults and injuries.
To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.
To be kind and gentle even under provocation.
Never to stand on one’s dignity.
To choose always the hardest.”
“Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.”
“The harder the struggle, the more glorious the triumph. Self-realization demands very great struggle.”
“When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”
