The more steadfastly we behold, and the more persistently we pursue, the concepts of divine goodness, the more certainly will we grow in greatness, in true magnitude of genuine survival character.  Nobility itself is always an unconscious growth. 
The highest moral choice is the choice of the highest possible value, and always—in any sphere, in all of them—this is to choose to do the will of God. If man thus chooses, he is great, though he be the humblest citizen.  Greatness lies not so much in possessing strength as in making a wise and divine use of such strength. 
The manifestation of greatness on a world like Urantia is the exhibition of self-control. The great man is not he who “takes a city” or “overthrows a nation,” but rather “he who subdues his own tongue.”. 
When the spiritual tests of greatness are applied, the moral elements are not disregarded, but the quality of unselfishness revealed in disinterested labor for the welfare of one’s earthly fellows, particularly worthy beings in need and in distress, that is the real measure of planetary greatness. 
Spiritual greatness consists in an understanding love that is Godlike and not in an enjoyment of the exercise of material power for the exaltation of self.  Greatness is synonymous with divinity.
