The meaning of "humility"

Humility is something that I have always struggled to understand. What is the essence of humility and how is it properly demonstrated?

Well, G.K. Chesterton briefly comments on humility in his own way in his book "Orthodoxy" (1908):

Humility was largely meant as a restraint upon the arrogance and infinity of the appetite of man.
