Richard P. Feynman

T. S. Eliot
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.

The next time you feel unworthy, inadequate or inferior, remember that these experiences have nothing to do with humbleness, any more than lowering yourself to connect with another individual has to do with humbleness.
