Quotes- Humility

Those who cannot feel the littleness of great things in themselves are apt to overlook the greatness of the little things in others.
-Kakuzo Okakura

I believe that the first test of a truly great man is his humility. I don't mean by humility, doubt of his power. But really great men have a curious feeling that the greatness is not of them, but through them. And they see something divine in every other man and are endlessly, foolishly, incredibly merciful.
-John Ruskin

American culture is one of independence. Carve your own path and live the American Dream; no one is stopping you. Yet the leaders that become truly great and develop lasting cultures are the servant leaders. Realizing you are not the first or the last, but one piece of the human experience allows you to harness the lessons, wealth, and knowledge of those before you and those around you. Learn to find value in everyone and everyone will find value in you.
