On Humility…

The intuition of the moral sentiment is an insight of the perfection of the laws of the soul. These laws execute themselves. They are out of time, out of space, and not subject to circumstance. Thus in the soul of man, there is a justice whose retributions are instant and entire. He who does a good deed is instantly ennobled…A man in the view of absolute goodness, adores, with total humility. Every step so downward, is a step upward. The man who renounces himself, comes to himself.

                                                      –Ralph Waldo Emerson
