The practice of Humility - 9

Refrain from haughty and proud words denoting an attitude of superiority; avoid affected expressions and sarcastic remarks; silence anything that would lead you to be considered witty, or worthy of esteem. In a word, never speak of yourself without a just reason, and avoid doing anything just to gain honor and praise.

J. Pecci (later Pope Leo XIII)
