Humility and conviction

What we suffer from today is humility in the wrong place. Modesty has moved from the organ of ambition. Modesty has settled on the organ of conviction; where it was never meant to be. A man was meant to be doubtful about himself and undoubting about the truth; this has been exactly reversed.

G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
