"The only humility that is really ours is not that which we try to show before God in prayer, but that which we carry with us, and carry out, in our ordinary conduct; the insignificances of daily life are the importances and the tests of eternity, because they prove what really is the spirit that possesses us.
It is in our most unguarded moments that we really show and see what we are. …Humility before God is nothing if not proved in humility before men."
-Andrew Murray, Humility: The Beauty of Holiness
