'Do not imagine that if you meet a really humble man he will be what most people call "humble" nowadays: he will not be the sort of greasy, smarmy person, who is always telling you that, of course, he is nobody. Probably all you will think about him is that he seemed a cheerful, intelligent chap who took a real interest in what you said him.  If you do dislike him it will be because you felt a little envious of anyone who seems to enjoy life to easily. He will not be thinking about humilty: he will not be thinking about himself at all.'
CS Lewis in Randy Newman, Bringing the Gospel Home, p.147.
