There is something to humility

I came across this little post on the "honor of humility" over at Slacker Manager. I particularly liked the blogger's use of the Castaneda quote, which I am reproducing here, but do go over and take a look:

The humbleness of a warrior is not the humbleness of the beggar. The warrior lowers his head to no one, but at the same time, he doesn’t permit anyone to lower his head to him. The beggar, on the other hand, falls to his knees at the drop of a hat and scrapes the floor to anyone he deems to be higher; but at the same time, he demands that someone lower than him scrape the floor for him.
—Carlos Castaneda
Just some food for thought.

A hat tip to Problogger.
