        Forgive me for appealing to the prosaic authority of a
dictionary, but a few seconds with give me
        humility - The quality or condition of being humble.
        humble -
        1. Marked by meekness or modesty in behavior, attitude, or
spirit; not arrogant or prideful.

        This, in asserting that arrogance and humility are opposites,
I would conclude Phillip is using the words as they are generally
understood, while Eli's useage tends towards redefinition in the
cause of his argument.
