The Humility of Greatness

The was written by Wraith's father. It sums up what the Keepers want to be:

 

The Humility of Greatness

I want the humility of greatness.

And therein lies the challenge.

How do you seek greatness without seeking glory?

I have heard it said that heroes don't know they are being heroes until after the fact.

They are merely doing what they are surprised that no one else will do.

Significance is success, and leaving a legacy of beneficence to others is the

highest form of living.

Yet, when it is done right - without seeking attention, THEN the humility of greatness is fully bloomed. Our worth is shown by our actions and the memory of us is a treasure inherited

by those come after us.

What will you do that is worth leaving behind? What will they say at your funeral?

Isn't THAT the concern that can drive us to a life best lived?

Yet, not out loud. Make it your ambition to lead a quiet life and be a conduit for blessings.

Bless others with your blessings and comfort others with your comfort.

Do this without seeking fanfare or recognition and you will find that you have achieved

the Humility of Greatness.
