I’m more interested in what I discover than what I invent. (Paul Simon, singer, song-writer)

Simon’s comment suggests something about the personality of creative people. Certainly, they are proud of what they produce, whether it’s music, art, or a device of some kind. They seem to recognize that there is a lot more to learn, to discover, and build upon. Pride in one’s work is one thing; humility to recognize there is still more to discover is another.

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom (Proverbs 11:2).
