“To do something well is so worthwhile that to die trying to do it better cannot be foolhardy. It would be a waste of life to do nothing with one's ability, for I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.”
Have more than you show and speak less than you know. Humility doesn't mean you need to put yourself down or lack confidence. It means putting yourself last and not feel long the need to outdo someone else.
