Sometimes humility is a manifestation of pride.

Truly humble people don't concern themselves with these concepts.

That's my point: saying 'i'm humble' is a manifestation of pride.. Saying 'I'm proud' (and I am!) shows humility..

What if you say 'I'm humbly proud'?

Would you be proud or humble if you said that?

This is no biggie. You can replace humble/proud by any set of opposite concepts, and the statements will make sense, in a way.

Only the good can admit their evilness
Only the evil can believe in their goodness

Only the intelligent can admit their stupidity
Only the stupid can believe in their intelligence

Only the brave can admit their cowardice
Only the cowardly can believe in their bravery

Only the .....heck, you get the point.
You will say that I don't really know you
And it will be true.

No, because only God is good..

The brave and the coward both feel fear, it is how they ACT that defines them as either..

Another interesting paradox we can discuss:

"This is a paradox of man: compared to God, man is nothing; yet we are everything to God. While against the backdrop of infinite creation we may appear to be nothing, we have a spark of eternal fire burning within our breast."
Dieter F. Uchtdorf

What is your feelings on the above paradox?
Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today. - President Obama
