Humility

“God will have a humble people. Either we can be humble or we can be compelled to be humble?Let us choose to be humble. We can choose to humble ourselves by conquering our enmity toward our brothers and sisters, esteeming them as ourselves, and lifting them as high or higher than we are?Let us choose to be humble. We can do it. I know we can.”(Ezra Taft Benson: Saturday Morning, 1st of April 1989)

“The worst fear that I have about [members of the Church] is that they will get rich in this country, forget God and his people, wax fat, and kick themselves out of the Church and go to hell. This people will stand mobbing, robbing, poverty, and all manner of persecution, and be true. But my greater fear for them is that they cannot stand wealth; and yet they have to be tried with riches, for they will become the richest people on this earth.” (Brigham Young: in Preston Nibley, Brigham Young: The Man and His Work [1936], 128)

He that is down, needs fear no fall;He that is low, no pride;He that is humble ever shallHave God as his guide.-John Bunyan“If the Lord was meek and lowly and humble, then to become humble one must do what he did in boldly denouncing evil, bravely advancing righteous work, courageously meeting every problem, becoming the master of himself and the situations about him and being near oblivous of personal credit….Humility is not pretentious, presumptuous or proud. It is not weak, vacillating, or servile.” (Spencer W. Kimball)”Modesty is a shining light. It prepares the mind to receive knowledge, and the heart for truth. Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.” (David O. McKay)
