This makes me think...

Humility rests on an interior decision of the will. Furthermore, humility is not primarily an attitude that pertains to the relationship of man to man: it is the attitude of man before the face of God.  Humility is the knowledge and acceptance of the inexpressible distance between Creator and creature.  It is, in a very precise sense... as Gertrud von le Fort once said, "man's true and proper worth before God."

---Josef Pieper, On Hope
