Just 4 tweet #4: On Humility

  • “No man can attain to the knowledge of God but by humility. The way to
    mount high is to descend.” – Blessed Giles of Assisi
  • “You must ask God to give you power to fight against the sin of pride
    which is your greatest enemy – the root of all that is evil, and the
    failure of all that is good. For God resists the proud.” – St. Vincent de Paul
  • “Whatever you do, think not of yourself, but of God.” – St. Vincent Ferrer
  • “What will be the crown of those who, humble within and humiliated
    without, have imitated the humility of our Savior in all its fullness!” – St. Bernadette
  • “Pride is an admission of weakness; it secretly fears all competition and
    dreads all rivals.” – Archbishop Fulton Sheen
  • “Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.
    Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor
    vexation. Where there is poverty and joy, there is neither greed nor
    avarice. Where there is peace and meditation, there is neither anxiety
    nor doubt.” – St. Francis of Assisi
  • “If you are discouraged it is a sign of pride because it shows you trust
    in your own power. Your self-sufficiency, your selfishness and your
    intellectual pride will inhibit His coming to live in your heart because
    God cannot fill what is already full. It is as simple as that.” – Bl. Mother Teresa
  • “Without the necessary humility to worship, I subconsciously desired to
    be worshiped, not in a crazy Napoleanic manner, but like a modern-day
    celebrity.” – Tarek Saab
