"It has been remarked that the modest deportment of really wise men, when contrasted to the assuming air of the vain and ignorant, may be compared to the difference of wheat, which, while its ear is empty, holds up its head proudly, but as soon as it is filled with grain bends modestly down and withdraws from observation."

Hi Fred,

Wonderful parable. A lovely photo to illustrate the point. A lesson to be remembered by all of us.
