  1. The point is that despite the Ravs position at the Mir, despite his elevation in learning and despite his yichus, he still doesn’t find it humbling to address a sanitation worker. This is certainly an onov.

    • there’s something wrong with anyone who thinks he’s too great to talk to someone who works in sanitation. This is not greatness, its just basic decency.

  2. *Swallow your pride occasionally, it’s non-fattening!
    *A modest man is usually admired, if people ever hear of him
    *Too much humility is pride.
    *Humility is like underwear; essential, but indecent if it shows.
