a slice of humbility pie

Life is a long lesson in humility. -James M. Barrie, novelist, short-story writer, and playwright (1860-1937)
Yo, you girls be sportin’ mad humbility in the corner ova here.  -drunk snugs patron (sometime after that)

ideas worth trying:  don’t ignore the ridiculous in yourself, pick it up and put it under a light and stare at it, until no one knows your flaws better than you do.  don’t trick yourself into thinking you’re smarter or more enlightened or a better person; in my experience those who think so are the farthest from it.  and most of all, don’t ever stop questioning everything you knew yesterday, don’t ever settle into some inflexible way that you see the world, or all you’ll see is the model you made for it, and none of the infinite rest that is going on outside of it.  only once you accept that you’re a baby, an idiot, a hopeless clueless fuck, can you really begin to see truth in anything.
