Don"t imagine that if you meet a really humble man he will be what most people call "humble" nowadays: he won"t be a sort of greasy, smarmy person, who"s always telling you that, of course, he"s nobody. Probably all you"ll think about him is that he seemed a cheerful, intelligent chap who took a real interest in what you said to him. If you do dislike him, it will be because you feel a bit envious of anyone who seems to enjoy life so easily. He won"t be thinking about himself at all. If anyone would like to acquire humility, I can, I think, tell him the first step. The first step is to realize that one is proud. And a biggish step, too. At least, nothing whatever can be done before it. If you think you"re not conceited, it means you are very conceited indeed.
