Humanity needs practical men, who get the most out of their work, and, without forgetting the general good, safeguard their own interests. But humanity also needs dreamers, for whom the disinterested development of an enterprise is so captivating that it becomes impossible for them to devote their care to their own material profit. A well-organized society should assure to such workers the efficient means of accomplishing their task, in a life freed from material care and freely consecrated to research.

Humilité devient une denrée rare dans le froid, le calcul et la société fière d'aujourd'hui. Il est en train de devenir une vertu oubliée, qui me fait souvent me demande "pourquoi?" à mon avis, l'humilité peut se manifester sous deux formes: l'une étant la forme interne de l'honnêteté, la vérité et l'intégrité, c'est à dire d'être honnête au sujet de qui nous sommes, et d'accepter nos strenths et les faiblesses vérité; tandis que la seconde forme étant l'un externe, qui est associée à la façon dont nous traitons les autres avec respect et dignité. Deux formes internes et externes sont interdépendants et ne peuvent simplement pas exister independenttly. Si c'est le cas, il peut expliquer pourquoi l'humilité est rare ..... c'est son manque d'honnêteté et de respect de soi qui germe sa / son manque de respect envers les autres. Accepter ses propres folies avec la plus grande honnêteté est certainement le premier pas vers l'humilité et de se rapprocher au pouvoir suprême.
– Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Humility is a virtue all preach, none practise, and yet everybody is content to hear. The master thinks it good doctrine for his servant, the laity for the clergy, and the clergy for the laity.
– John Selden
Humility is becoming a scarce commodity in today's cold, calculating, and proud society. It is now becoming a forgotten virtue, which often makes me wonder "Why?" In my view, Humility can be manifested in two forms: one being the Internal form of honesty, truth and integrity, i.e. being honest about who we are, and accepting our strenths and weaknesses truthfully; while the second form being the External one, which is associated with how we treat others with respect and dignity. Both Internal and External forms are interdependent, and simply cannot exist independenttly. If that's the case, it can explain why Humility is in short supply.....it's one's lack of honesty and self-respect that germinates her/his lack of respect towards others. Accepting one's own follies with utmost honesty is surely the first step towards humility and getting closer to Supreme Power.
– Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate
Humility is indeed beatness, a compulsory virtue that no one exhibits unless he has to.
– William S. Burroughs
