When a humble person forgets himself, he is united with God.
People who try to force circumstances become their slaves. Those who use them become their masters.
— The Talmud
There is nothing in this world more tender and more pliable than water, yet hard and rigid things cannot resist it.
Weakness defeats strength, tenderness defeats rigidity. Everyone knows this law, but no one acts upon it. The weakest in the world gain victory over the strongest; therefore, there is a great ad-vantage in humility and silence. Only a few people in this world are truly humble.
The more humble a person is, the freer and stronger he is.
