Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed,
Irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
It is to have a blessed home in myself
Where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father in secret
and be at peace,
As in a deep sea of calmness,
When all around and about is trouble.
~Andrew Murray

(This tidbit serves as a marker in my Bible.  A good reminder for me.)
