Johann Georg Meyer Von Bremen Art
I long to accomplish a great and noble task,
but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble
tasks as though they were great and noble.
The world is moved along not only by the mighty
shoves of its heroes but also by the aggregate
of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall
inherit the earth.
Catch him at the moment when he is really poor
in spirit and smuggle into his mind the gratifying
reflection, "By jove! I'm being humble", and almost
immediately pride — pride at his own humility — will appear.
C. S. Lewis
