But that was just because I conceded the battle to my betters.

"Humility" comes originally from the Latin humus, soil. It suggests 
someone who is lowly, close to the soil. In Swedish the word is instead 
"ödmjuk", which means something that easily becomes soft. German "Demut" 
on the other hand comes from "mentality of a servant".
