“The word humility actually comes from the Latin word for earth or soil, humus—which sounds a lot like but should not be confused with the simple but delicious Middle Eastern chickpea dip, hummus. Humility literally brings us back down to earth, sometimes with a thud.”

— The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, et al.
