Humble Talk is Cheap

Bishop Fenelon

"I would warn you of the temptation of “humble talk”. It is so easy to talk in very humble ways simply because it sounds good. But it is far better to be humble and say nothing about it. The humility that can still talk needs to be carefully watched! The old self gets a lot of comfort out of what it says to itself."

Let Go

[If you think you are already are somewhat humble, and you don't mind, try letting yourself be misunderstood, and do nothing about it. Don't explain or defend, don't say anything at all. Sr. Ruth Burrows wrote that we don't mind being thought humble, but we'd rather not be insignificant.]
