The practice of Humility - 27

Perform all your actions, no matter how small they may be, as attentively, precisely and diligently as possible; acting lightly and rashly is the result of presumption.  The truly humble person is always vigilant to avoid failing, in even the smallest things.

For the same reason always practice ordinary exercises of piety; shun the unusual practices suggested by your nature.  The proud seeks always to stand out, the humble, on the contrary, is glad doing what is common and ordinary.

J. Pecci (later Pope Leo XIII)
