Ashes, dust to dust or humility?

Ewtn/morning glory said its to remind us of what we return to. Our deacon at Sunday’s mass said its to remind us to be humble.
Who’s right?

I don’t see it as an either/or. After all, remembering what we will return to, remembering that we are finite, mortal beings in desperate need of God’s grace, fosters humility.
