To me they are not directly interrelated . Modesty can make a man a gentleman but not a great man .
I think there are 3 types of great people
- those who are born great like mother Teresa, Sachin ,Newton etc
- those who achieve greatness by paying price for their risk taking ability , misunderstanding and opposition from common people like Galileo , Picasso etc
- those who hire public relations officers to project them as great like our politicians :)
My vote goes for 2nd type because if you are not born great , it is not your fault but if you die miniature , it's solely your responsibility
