Rosmini for August XVIII

Humility is a most lovable virtue. Everybody loves and wishes well to the humble man because he never gives offence, and willingly yields to the desires and feelings of others, even at the sacrifice of self. He is readily listened to, and his words like some sweet balm penetrate the heart.
Conferences on Ecclesiastical Duties ix.9 [SC]
