Humility is Not Humiliation

Bow to the Sun

Your greatest fear
is
Your Biggest

[ FEAR-PORTUNITY? ] 



“Every person 
that you meet 
knows something 
you don't; 
learn from them.” 
                  H. Jackson Brown Jr






" Pride makes us 
artificial and 
humility makes 
us real."
                 Thomas Merton







Self Portrait

"Humility is 
the solid foundation 
of all virtues."
              Confucius

"Posturing
is for punks!"

Seems to me
our culture has lost 
the distinction
 between humility 
and humiliation.

Yogi Berra had a way with aphorisms. Great pics!

Amen to this sentiment!

"It's hard to be humble, when you're perfect in every way." Ha. These lyrics just came to my mind.
But I agree with you - too many punks out there.
Have a great day.

Cloudia’s quote isn’t bad either.

To be a fly on the wall in that second shot...

Pixie's looking rather royal.

Pixie: Orangya missing an orange shirt?
Aww, but Pixie's not a punk, she's a princess, and knows it. But do you?
We've come to expect your own written quotes, as is the case with your entire quotable book. More quotes! More books!?!

Cloudia,
I would love it if posts such as this one were in a book. I would order it as a text for my classroom. Do you have a book version of your blog? I want it!

Cloudia said...

Yes! How did you two know?????

I do want to make a small book from this blog, and only recently decided! You two show me it's a worthwhile idea!

Thanks <3
