Humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.

Rick Warren

This quote is from pastor and author Rick Warren’s 2002 book “The Purpose Driven Life.” Variations of the quote, however, have appeared in many other sources — and no wonder, as it’s a resonant message. There’s a misperception that to be humble means you shouldn’t regard yourself highly. But to practice true humility requires a shift in perspective, to put others first.
