"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."


- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry


I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

The Charm of Humility.




I've had just the time to...   learn a little about humility.


Taken in Bali where I learned about the great charm of humility.



Humility does not mean thinking less of yourself than of other people, nor does it mean having a low opinion of your own gifts. It means freedom from thinking about yourself at all.
~ William Temple

Talent is God given. Be humble. Fame is man-given. Be grateful. Conceit is self-given. Be careful.
 ~ John Wooden
_____

We come nearest to the great when we are great in humility.
~Rabindranath Tagore

True humility that comes from the heart rather than mere gestures is not as apparent or as easy to achieve. Somtimes, it is even often misunderstood for something else.
