From Saint Augustine

"Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation. "

"Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility."

"Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe."

Those quotes are wonderful! What a beautiful thing, that when we a humble, then (and only then) are we truly great!
