Famous quotes containing the word humble:

    Here rests his head upon the lap of Earth
    A Youth to Fortune and to Fame unknown,
    Fair Science frown’d not on his humble birth,
    And Melancholy mark’d him for her own.
    Thomas Gray (1716–1771)

    Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
    Bible: New Testament, Matthew 18:4.

    At thirty years a woman asks her lover to give her back the esteem she has forfeited for his sake; she lives only for him, her thoughts are full of his future, he must have a great career, she bids him make it glorious; she can obey, entreat, command, humble herself, or rise in pride; times without number she brings comfort when a young girl can only make moan.
    Honoré De Balzac (1799–1850)
