I like the sound of it - this word also featured in the terrific novel, Charlotte's Web. I think that being humble is a dying personality trait in today's society. It is one of my goals to teach humility to my own children and to my students.
I don't hate any words, but I do hate that there is a growing sense of entitlement among people in today's self-obsessed world.There's nothing worse than someone who is always blaming others for their faults and fails to accept responsibility for their own learning or situation. The world owes you nothing!
