Amen to that.  Humility, Love and Moderation are the Three Great Treasures elucidated by Lau Tzu in the Tao te Ching.  Too many associate humility with being a pushover, however, nothing could be farther from the truth:

The humbleness of a warrior is not the humbleness of the beggar. The warrior lowers his head to no one, but at the same time, he doesn’t permit anyone to lower his head to him. The beggar, on the other hand, falls to his knees at the drop of a hat and scrapes the floor to anyone he deems to be higher; but at the same time, he demands that someone lower than him scrape the floor for him. 
—Don Juan Matus - Tales of Power by Carlos Castaneda
