"Humility has nothing to do with depreciating ourselves or our gifts in ways we know to be untrue. Even "humble" attitudes can be masks of pride. Humility is that freedom from our self that enables us to be in positions in which we have neither recognition nor importance, neither power nor visibility, and even experience deprivation, and yet have joy and delight. It is the freedom of knowing that we are not in the center of the universe, not even in the center of our own private universe".
