Define Humble

Ryan Gosling seems to think humble means that someone wouldn't brag.

Neil Armstrong was not a braggart.

He never claimed to do anything he'd never done.

That's as humble as a fighter pilot gets.

Both Chuck Yeager and Buzz Aldrin, men who knew Armstrong well, have both called bullshit on Mr Gosling's take on how Neil would have characterized the landing.

I knew better than to think what Gosling was saying because I'd bothered to read Mr Armstrong's book.

  1. I didn't know he'd written a book. I shall have to look it up. And what little I know about Neil Armstrong, the man, makes me think that not only was he an absolutely elite pilot, but a class act all the way. I'd rather have had him for POTUS than anybody in my lifetime.
