'Humility will make a man have high thoughts of others and low thoughts of a man's self; it will make a man see much glory and excellency in others, and much baseness and sinfulness in a man's self; it will make a man see others rich, and himself poor; others strong, and himself weak; others wise, and himself foolish. Humility will make a man excellent at covering others' infirmities, and at recording their gracious services, and at delighting in their services; it makes a man joy in every light that outshines his own, and every wind that blows others good.'
Thomas Brooks, Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices, p.210.
