He Was Humble, Too

Posted by
In doing a little research on William Wilberforce this week (in anticipation of this week's release of the film Amazing Grace, which marks the 200th anniversary of the slave trade in the British Empire), I stumbled across a quotation that confirms the truth of Carl's recent post on humility.

Arthur Wellesley, First Duke of Wellington, wrote the following after meeting with Wilberforce: "You have made me so entirely forget you are a great man by seeming to forget it yourself in all our intercourse."
