It has been too long since I’ve participated in The Week in Words at Stray Thoughts, so I thought I’d jump back in this week. I’m still reading To Kill a Mockingbird for my own To Kill a Mockingbird Reading Challenge. I find this book immensely quotable, but I ran across a quote in the book the other day that I didn’t remember. I like it, so I’m sharing it here. It comes compliments of Miss Maudie, a very wise woman:
“People in their right minds never take pride in their talents.”
Miss Maudie shares this with Jem and Scout after the “One Shot” Finch episode.
Humility is a virtue that we can grasp only when we know from whence all our blessings come, right?
