And, one other “Finally” to this article that I am coming back and editing to add. Right after I published this, I read a piece by Julia E Hubbel that says all of what I just said; except better. I had to come back and include it. Read her article here, you will be happy you did:
Oh goodness, dear Timothy! You got me with sentence and my tears started flowing! I have a soft spot for humility! Thanks for how you made me feel...
"Humility is the mother of all the virtues because humility acknowledges that there are natural laws or principles that govern the universe. They are in charge. We are not. Pride teaches us that we are in charge. Humility teaches us to understand and live by principles, because they ultimately govern the consequences of our actions. If humility is the mother, courage is the father of wisdom. Because to truly live by these principles when they are contrary to social mores, norms and values takes enormous courage." ~ Stephen Covey
