Humbled Females: new forum reply to A random question…


New reply from liawahine

<p>@ee,</p>
<p>i'm feeling quote-y today ;)</p>
<div class="wps_wp_editor_quote">Do you think failure is what creates humility?</div>
<div> </div>
<div>i think that failure is just one way humility is created in a person. For me, i've felt humbled by failure,but it is not the main source of humility for me. </div>

<div><em>"Losing is a learning experience. It teaches you humility. It teaches you to work harder. It’s also a powerful motivator. Yogi Berra"</em></div>
<div> </div>
<div>Understanding my place brings humility, the sort that swells the heart and lifts you up. To know how small and insignificant one is in the universe is the "bigger picture" application of this. On the minuet, personal level, real knowledge of ones inferiority to ones master is ever humbling and uplifting at once. </div>
<div> </div>
<div><em>"There is something in humility which strangely exalts the heart. Augustine of Hippo"</em></div>
<div> </div>
<div>To love,to unconditionally love another is humbling. How one loves their master may well fall in this category, as it surly does for me. To put his happiness ahead of mine, his comfort, his goals.. this is love … </div>

<div><em>""Whoever loves becomes humble. Those who love have , so to speak , pawned a part of their narcissism. Sigmund Freud"</em></div>
<div> </div>
<div><em>"The obedience is what brings the blessing. The way to be obedient is to walk in humility. Joel Osteen"</em></div>
<div> </div>
<div>Being shown gratitude, for me, is also deeply humbling. i think many people go the route of ego inflation here though, but i was taught to take a different view of it, and i'm grateful now for it! What is a dancer without an audience? What is a chef without mouths to feed? When people appreciate the things you have worked hard at doing, it gives those things purpose. Without them, the dance and the meal is meaningless. So, leaving the stage, i am genuinely touched with a feeling of humility that i stirred a person enough to come up to me and tell me, or track me down after a meal to do the same.  </div>

<div>i have worked with children and animals most of my life, and there are moments when the uncluttered innocence of a child's statement evokes humility and wonder in me. Same with animals, especially the ones with issues from past neglect or abuse. Watching an animal process past its fear and trust again, showing  how vital an urge trust is, humbles me to.</div>

<div><em>"Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children. Kahlil Gibran"</em></div>
<div> </div>
<div>Being a female is to be humble, though not many see this anymore. When a girl lives her life through this lens, happiness follows – from my experience.</div>
<div> </div>
<div><em>"I long to accomplish a great and noble tasks, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble. The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker. Helen Keller"</em></div>
<div> </div>
<div><em>"These are the few ways we can practice humility: To speak as little as possible of one’s self. To mind one’s own business. Not to want to manage other people’s affairs. To avoid curiosity. To accept contradictions and correction cheerfully. To pass over the mistakes of others. To accept insults and injuries. To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked. To be kind and gentle even under provocation. Never to stand on one’s dignity. To choose always the hardest. Mother Teresa"</em></div>
