"It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom.
It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest
might weaken and the wisest might err."
Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi
(1869-1948) Leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India

    Humility is a cardinal Virtue.

    Ultimately, in the absence of humility, there is no humanity.

    It brings to mind another place where the foolish things of the world confound the wise; and chosen weak things of the world confound the things which are mighty.

    " Wisdom is the principle thing, but with all thy getting, get understanding." American's should take note, the wisdom of the world has been made foolishness with God. " But we speak the Wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom which God ordained Before the world began to our glory." " He who wins souls is wise." likewise, " knowledge of the holy is wisdom." " The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and to depart from evil is understanding." Liberty and Freedom are of such hidden knowledge, seeing their means, not known, till exposed upon our Tree of Liberty. Then the earth was moved and the heavens shook. " With a Firm reliance upon Divine Providence " knowing, it is a fool who puts his trust in man. It is an honor for man to cease from strife, then humility before honor. This our founding fathers knew, and through their experience, as guide, the grace of God was revealed to mankind in due season. I was fond of them who sought me not. A people zealous of good works. This wisdom Gandhi did not possess, otherwise he would have spoken of such hidden wisdom, that God provides to the least of the children of men.
