I can’t tell if I belabored the point or was unnecessarily dramatic, though part of that uncomfortable feeling is because I’m not terribly comfortable yet making strong assertions that have to do with myself. Perhaps I’m uncomfortable reconciling humility or modesty with confidence and “passion”. I’ve heard it said that humility is a virtue—I wonder, who wanted that to be known; what were their motivations; is it really; and what’s the purpose of virtue anyway?
