Humility from others' faith

Was reading some memorable quotes of Dag Hammarskjold, the second Secretary-General of the UN and here's one that really caught my attention:

I found this quote quite confusing. In fact, a bit contradictory too. However, reading his life and his thoughts, I realized that it only those with a depth of character can state so.  For every common or mean person, others having faith in you is a dangerous position.  Elevated to that level of trust, one either feels above others or suppressed by their expectations.  Rarely does one feel humbled and strengthened, unless very balanced.
Dag Hammarskjold
