Leo Tolstoy Quote
He who exalts himself shall be humbled; and he who humbles himself shall be exalted. (Matthew 23:12) The person who exalts himself … will be humbled, because a person who considers himself to be good, intelligent, and kind will not even try to become better, smarter, kinder. The humble person will be exalted, because he considers himself bad and will try to become better, kinder, and more reasonable.
