    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteThou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will? / Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus? / Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour? / What if God, willing to shew his wrath, and to make his power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath fitted to destruction: / And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, / Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles? / As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.

    I Like this quote I dislike this quoteIMMODEST, adj. Having a strong sense of one's own merit, coupled with a feeble conception of worth in others.



There was once a man in Ispahan Ever and ever so long ago, And he had a head, the phrenologists said, That fitted him for a show.



For his modesty's bump was so large a lump

(Nature, they said, had taken a freak) That its summit stood far above the wood Of his hair, like a mountain peak.



So modest a man in all Ispahan, Over and over again they swore -- So humble and meek, you would vainly seek; None ever was found before.



Meantime the hump of that awful bump Into the heavens contrived to get To so great a height that they called the wight The man with the minaret.



There wasn't a man in all Ispahan Prouder, or louder in praise of his chump: With a tireless tongue and a brazen lung He bragged of that beautiful bump



Till the Shah in a rage sent a trusty page Bearing a sack and a bow-string too, And that gentle child explained as he smiled:

"A little present for you."



The saddest man in all Ispahan, Sniffed at the gift, yet accepted the same.

"If I'd lived," said he, "my humility Had given me deathless fame!" --Sukker Uffro
