bord, i didn't read poverty in this thread, i was comparing the similarities of your answer here to what you have said in the noble poverty thread and you know that..if you don't want to debate you could just say so.

Egd, I never shy away from a good debate, but I think that you interpreted somethin I said back in the "noble poverty" thread differently from anyone else who read it. What exactly did you take away from that noble poverty thread?

Well said.
I will take on your first statement though, lol. I don't think that there is such a thing as *too humble*. And I don't think that rolling over and playing dead is a sign of humility. I think that *true* humbleness is a balance, knowing and using your own gifts, w/out the attitude (out right or underlying) that said gifts make you more worthy than others.

I have also seen, and desire to avoid, false humility, where people take a certain amount of pride in what they don't have (hmm, sounds familiar..).

Yes, I do see what you mean and I think that you are right that it is a balance.

It would be really nice if she would explain what she means instead of making veiled insults directed to me.
