False.

I am humble because I have much to be humble about.

@roger,
I can't but agree and meekly concur with your sentiment.

It reminds me muchly of the less fortunate and more deserving.

Your gracious modesty is humbling.

That which seeks approval and praise is not humility. It is something else which is repulsive.

If there's one thing I can be proud of and brag about, it's my humility.

@Seizan,
Me too. I'm also very famous, but don't tell anybody. They don't know it yet.

There's a word, 'humblebragging' I seem to have heard a lot lately. Manufactured modesty as a guise for overt bragging.

@Tes yeux noirs,
Not me, man. My church has the highest steeple in town, not to mention the most humble congregation.

@Amel Mrissa,
Humility is a virtue - AND - A Virtue 'projected' is no Virtue at all.
A virtue 'reflected' is true.

Humility strives only to do the right thing, and go unnoticed.

@Amel Mrissa,
Good question and you can easily substitute "humble" with generous, compassionate etc

I don't think all people of good character are so because they appreciate recognition, but I think a lot are, and that's not necessarily a bad thing unless you are a stern judging God.
