Interesting... Spoken like a true egotistical showoff.

Its like the cynic saying that there is no such thing as altruism.  Self-justifying.

I know truly modest people - one reason they are modest is because they actually hate being recogniized.

I'm practicing to be modest and getting to be good at it,

modesty is not a virtue i value anymore...though i grew up believing it to be morally valuable. don't give a rat's patootie about it, now. IME, the pursuit of modesty is tied closely to its shadow quality, hubris.

i found the antidote to both modesty & hubris to be the same thing: to just be true and present to the reality of "what is", both strengths & weakenesses, without the need to hide or undermine either. Smiley
