Humility - a thought-provoking quote

C.S. Lewis says
Do not imagine that if you meet a really humble man he will be what most people call 'humble' nowadays: he will not be a...person, who is always telling you that...he is nobody. Probably all you will think about him is that he seemed a cheerful, intelligent chap who took a real interest in what you said to him. If you do dislike him it will be because you feel a little envious of anyone who seems to enjoy life so easily. He will not be thinking about humility: he will not be thinking about himself at all.

From Mere Christianity, page 128.
