Thought for today: Modesty

-Karthik Gurumurthy

At a luncheon with photographer Yousuf and his wife, Neil Armstrong, the  late astronaut who became the first human to set foot on the moon, politely asked the couple about the many places they had visited. Photographer Yousuf responded : "Mr. Armstrong, you have walked on the moon. We would much rather hear about your travels." "But that's the only place I have ever been," remarked Armstrong, apologetically.

Most of us get too excited and go out of the world with little accomplishment but Armstrong actually went out of the  world (I mean earth:) but was still grounded. So much to learn from the late astronaut about modesty.
