Item description for Humility: The Quiet Virtue by Everett L. Worthington, Jr....

Overview
Humility is a virtue that can be difficult to describe because of its paradoxical nature: claiming authority about humility suggests a lack of humility. Yet, in Humility, Everett L. Worthington Jr. is able to talk about humility and to inspire people to be more humble-with humility. He begins with a reader self-assessment exercise, inviting people to assess themselves and recognize humility in those among them. He suggests people as examples: Jesus, Siddhartha, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, and Martin Luther King. He examines the characteristics of humility they share and, in doing so, formulates a working definition of humility. Science has made few attempts to measure humility, Worthington points out, and humility is not a skill we can learn. But people can be inspired to be humble, and hey can aspire to humility. "Great people-and ordinary people acting nobly-can inspire us," Worthington writes. "When we catch the spirit, we can transfer that spirit from ourselves to others." Quotations interspersed throughout the book reinforce the message that the unassuming virtue of humility transforms lives.

Reviews - What do customers think about Humility: The Quiet Virtue?

A short book, with valuable insights  Feb 7, 2010
Simple, generally pretty non-religious (a few Christian references, but I wouldn't call it a "Christian" book) with valuable insights on the value and virtues of humility. This book includes short stories and anecdotes about humility and explains that it can't just be willed. It's something we have to practice. I liked it and got a lot out of reading it.
