He is humble who has a lowly feeling of himself as compared with others, modest who places a low estimate upon his own qualifications and will not thrust himself forward, submissive who is yielding and has respect to others.

A king governs by wise and judicious laws; a despot rules by arbitrary decision and is autocratic.

An argument is convincing that directs one's reasoning; conclusive that prevents further discussion ; decisive that puts an end to all wavering and determines one's will. Both convincing and conclusive arguments assist in decisive action.

“No man is born into the world whose work

Is not born with him; there is always work,
And tools to work withal, for those who will;
And blessed are the horny hands of toil!
The busy world shoves angrily aside
The man who stands with arms akimbo set,
Until occasion tells him what to do;
And he who waits to have his task marked out
Shall die and leave his errand unfulfilled.
Our time is one that calls for earnest deeds.”

- Lowell. “ The important thing in life is to have a great aim with the determination to attain it.” — Goethe.

6 Great truths are portions of the soul of man;

Great souls are portions of eternity; Each drop of blood that .e'er through true heart ran

With lofty message, ran for thee and me; For God's law since the starry song began,

Hath been, and still forevermore must be, That every deed which shall outlast life's span,

Must goad the soul to be erect and free.” Lowell.
