Enjoyed your column. Three more quotes: "I'd be perfect if I just had a little humility" Ted Turner "Humility is thinking less ABOUT yourself, not thinking less OF yourself." Peter Kreeft "Don't be so humble - you are not that great." Golda Meir (1898-1978) to a visiting diplomat

On a VERY politically incorrect note, the Krispy Kreme donut calendars are good. Just google "krispy kreme donut calendar" for some examples. Not from KK, and it must drive them nuts, but as someone once said, bad publicity is better than no publicity....

In the U.S., the donut prize goes to Krispy Kreme, IMHO. As for humility, at least in an engineering context, it can take many different forms. It centers on who gets the blame for the failures and who gets the credit for the victories...and humble engineers know how to do that dance and take their fair share of both.

Re: In America we are each entitled to believe that a particular kind [of donut] is the best Well, who amongst us could argue with that?

The times when being right is most enjoyable are those when you don't need to remind others about it, but instead find that they are reminding you about being right. The problem come in that the more times that you are right, the worse the results when you are wrong. And as for the donuts, the truth is in the mouth of the consumer. IN America we are each entitled to believe that a particular kind is the best.
