Wise and Humble . . . and Really Old

Rock solid

 

 

Let’s go back 1600 years for this week’s advice:

 

 

“If you plan to build a tall house of virtues,
  you must first lay deep foundations of humility.”
St. Augustine of Hippo (354-430)

I know of a couple presidential candidates who could benefit from this advice. Come to think of it, couldn’t we all?bless humble
