  1. Such an important quote – to be humble, both for the sake of not pretending you know more than you do, as well as to always recognize we have more learning to do. (:

    • Precisely! This just reminded me of another quote but by The Bard: “The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.” Humility is the way to go and besides, holding on to a false sense of pride is just asking for trouble.

  2. I like that quote. I don’t have a big ego, I like to listen, and I know my intellectual limits. I should be okay.
