"Never do anything so that others may see and esteem you. Never do anything out of human respect. Do everything perfectly, because you are working in God’s presence, for God and not for men. In every situation think more about loving than about working. Don’t offer excuses when you make a mistake. Don’t cast the blame on others. Do not offend by sarcasm those who correct you. Do not renounce in advance your errors which someone is trying to point out to you. ...St. Maximilian Kolbe’s Bullet-Point Plan for His Life
"Willingly accept every opportunity for humbling yourself. Don’t be offended at a harsh word, and imperious tone of voice, not being respected as much as you would like to be. Welcome occasions of being disregarded and humiliated, first with patience, then willingly, without raising any difficulties, and finally with joy. That will be perfect humility."
