Legend has it  that Roman emperors had slaves who rode on their chariots during triumphal parades whispering “Respice te, hominem te memento.”

“Look behind you. Remember, you are only a man!”

Some of us, I reckon, would benefit from having a humility slave in our lives.

It’s so easy to get carried away with praise and plaudits.

It can be hard to keep our feet on the ground.

Sometimes it’s good to be reminded we are mere mortals!
