Here's something I read by CS Lewis today in his book called "The Joyful Christian"
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 are not conceited, it means you are very conceited indeed.
Interesting huh? Straight to the point.
