Benjamin Franklin's dilemma- one he passed onto the young United States- was how to achieve both greatness and humility, all at once. The careful line of greatness and humility was walked by a few historical leaders. The humility James Madison learned as a legislator helped him mold a nation. The humility of Abigail Adams fed her impossible resilience. Humility of all kinds is deeply ingrained in our American DNA. Our challenge is to rediscover and reawaken this utterly indispensable, alarmingly dormant national virtue.

In Humility: An Unlikely Biography of America's Greatest Virtue, Dr. David J. Bobb traces the "crooked line" that is the history of humility in political thought. From Socrates to Augustine to Machiavelli to Lincoln, passionate opinions about a "humble ruler" are collected and compared in Humility: An Unlikely Biography of America's Greatest Virtue.
