Loving humility is a terrrible force

"At some ideas you stand perplexed, especially at the sight of human sins, uncertain whether to combat it by force of by humble love. Always decide, 'I will combat it with humble love.' If you make up your mind about that once and for all, you can conquer the whole world. Loving humility is a terrible force; it is the strongest of all things and there is nothing like it."

Dostoyevski in The Brothers Karamazov
