Ezra Taft Benson

Pride is concerned with who is right. Humility is concerned with what is right.

Ezra Taft Benson


"Humility is royalty without a crown."

Spencer W. Kimball  (Improvement Era, August 1963, Page 704)


"[Humility is:] Greatness in plain clothes"

Spencer W. Kimball (Improvement Era, August 1963, page 704)


"I firmly believe that no man who honestly bows down every day of his life and supplicates God in sincerity for the light of his Holy Spirit to guide him will ever become proud and haughty.  On the contrary, his heart will become filled with meekness, humility, and childlike implicity."

Heber J. Grant (Doctrines From The Prophets, page 246)


"Be humble.  There is no place for arrogance in our lives.  There is no place for conceit in our lives. There is no place for egotism in our lives."

President Gordon B. Hinckley  - Ensign, Mar. 2001, 64


"The more I see of life, brethren, the more I see why there is such a scriptural stress on submissiveness, meekness, and humility. The dangers flowing from an excess of ego are so constant and real. If we would but place an ego screen over all our thoughts, words, and actions before they hurt others or embarrass us! If we are steadily becoming more and more 'the man of Christ,' the mesh in that ego screen will become finer and finer, and fewer and fewer things will slip through to harm."

Neal A. Maxwell, "I Will Arise and Go to My Father," -  Ensign, Sept. 1993, 66
