humility









.

When humility delivers a man 
from attachment to his own words 
and his own reputation, 
he discovers that true joy is only possible 
when we have completely forgotten ourselves,
and it is only when we pay no more attention to our life 
and our own reputation and our own excellence 
that we are at last completely free to serve God for His sake alone.




~ Thomas Merton
