noun: a disposition to be humble; a lack of false pride

"Order is virtue. And order isn't a thing to be cultivated; you can't say I will be orderly, I will do this and I won't do that - then you are merely disciplining yourself, becoming more and more rigid, mechanical. Such a mind is totally incapable of coming upon this beauty that has no name, no expression. Order, like virtue, cannot be cultivated - if you cultivate humility you are obviously not humble; you can cultivate vanity, but to cultivate humility is not possible any more than to cultivate love. So order which is virtue cannot be practiced. All that one can do is to see this total disorder within and outside oneself - see it! You can see this total disorder instantly and that is the only thing that matters - to see it instantly." - [J. Krishnamurti]

Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth
"WE will leave you with these thoughts which we beg you will receive deeply into your consciousness and make good use of them in your daily lives. We strongly urge you to band together, irrespective of religious beliefs, in small groups to use the Letters as guide lines for your daily lives. Shed, if you can, your conditioning, and come together in true humility, as people willing to agree they know little of true spirituality - but are strongly desirous of learning how to enhance and spiritualise their lives." [Christ Returns - Speaks His Truth, Letter 4, page 22]

Rudolf Steiner
"Only a person who has passed through the gate of humility can ascend to the heights of the spirit." [Rudolf Steiner]

T. S. Eliot
'The only wisdom we can hope to acquire is the wisdom of humility: humility is endless.' [T. S. Eliot Born in St Louis 1888]
