On the highest throne in the world, we still sit only on our own bottom.
– Michel de Montaigne –
I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.
– Abraham Lincoln –
As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on thing and people: and, of course, as long as you are looking down you cannot see something that is above you.
– C.S. Lewis –
