"With All Due Modesty . . ."

S.M. Hutchens, at Mere Comments, on humility:
" was my niece, or perhaps one of my daughters, who once asked me if I was a famous man....

"If I had been thinking in a truly humble way... I would have answered, 'I don't know, and it doesn't matter, for the only one whose opinion counts is God - he's the only person one should care about being famous with. And I already know his opinion of me: he's not impressed.' That's also true, but on a higher level, bidding fair to keep those who believe it truly humble."
