True humility is to recognize your value and others value while looking up. It is to see there is far greater than ourself into who we can become, who others can become, and how much more we can do and be.

To be humble is to serve others and be for their good as well as your own

To be humble is to have a realistic appreciation of your great strengths, but also of your weaknesses
Moses is an example of a man possessing true humility. He realizes his grandeur and importance as a leader of an entire nation, but also looked up to something greater than himself in G-d and realized how much more there is than who we are.

There are way better definitions about humility than this. I don't even kow why you're still reading this. There are plenty of more interesting words to look up. I reccomend irony or cynical.They're far better than this...

Humility \hu-mil-ity\

1) The art or state of being humbled.

2) To study 30 years to show your-self approved, when at the end of 30 years finding your-self knowledgeable with information to answer most of the questions that no one is looking for the answers to.

3) To offer your services to others for free, and have them turn and walk away.

4) To spend a life gaining the whole world, and at the end, giving everything gained to someone who didn’t work for it, and will most likely throw it all away.

5) To try to live a life of integrity, only to have it stolen from you in the end. And that, by someone who doesn’t have integrity.

6) To find out that the definition of humility probably came from the root word “futility.”
