Discipleship

A Really Humble Man

Do not imagine that if you meet a really humble man he will be what most people call “humble” nowadays: he will not be a sort of greasy, smarmy person, who is always telling you that, of course, he is nobody.   Probably all you will think about him is that he seemed a cheerful, intelligent chap who took a real interest in what you said to him.   If you do dislike him it will be because you feel a little envious of anyone who seems to enjoy life so easily.   He will not be thinking about humility: he will not be thinking about himself at all.

– C.S. Lewis
