My Comment: This is inherent to all great people who perceive themselves not as something existing, but as existing for the sake of something. They live for the sake of the upper idea. Therefore, they do not perceive an individual as having value of its own.
A leader is humble because he understands that the leadership qualities are given to him by nature, and therefore does not attribute them to himself.
Not perceiving anything in the world to be higher than the idea, he sees himself as its conductor to the masses. And the masses can only be its implementers.
