Humility gets a bad rap. But in truth, the humble see reality as it is, without the illusions or distortions of the ego. They recognize their limits and act in good conscience.

How can we avoid falling into pride and arrogance? Consider the wisdom of the saints, whose advice encourages us to cultivate humility in daily life.
