"Nobody speaks humbly of being humble."- Nietszche

The Pharisee said to God, "thank you for not making me like this publican". The publican said, "God have mercy on me, a sinner." Christians now pray, "God thank you for making me like the publican.", which, of course, misses the point. God can make you humble, but you cannot know God has made you humble.

  1. Lewis it seems hit on how to deal with humility: to treat it humorously and not seriously. To laugh at oneself's incipient pride at humility and leave it alone.
