Pride quotes
Pride
The sculptor will chip off all unnecessary material to set free the angel. Nature will chip and pound us remorselessly to bring out our possibilities. She will strip us of wealth, humble our pride, humiliate our ambition, let us down from the ladder of fame, will discipline us in a thousand ways, if she can develop a little character, Everything must give way to that. Wealth is nothing, position is nothing, fame is nothing, manhood is everything.

- Marden, Orison Swett
If I had only one sermon to preach it would be a sermon against pride.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.
By ignorance is pride increased; those must assume who know the least.

- Gay
The English are predisposed to pride, the French to vanity.

- Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Pride sullies the noblest character.

- Claudianus
Vanity is a mark of humility rather than of pride.

- Swift, Jonathan
I can trace my ancestry back to a protoplasmal primordial atomic globule. Consequently, my family pride is something inconceivable. I canít help it. I was born sneering.

- Sir William Schwenk Gilbert
Idleness and pride tax with a heavier hand than kings and governments.

- Franklin, Benjamin
Who does not know that kings and rulers sprang from men who were ignorant of God, who assumed because of blind greed and intolerable presumption to make themselves masters of other men, their equals, by means of pride, violence, bad faith, murder, and almost every other kind of crime? Surely the devil drove them on.

- Pope Gregory VII
Swallow your pride, you will not die, it's not poison.

- Bob Dylan
There is false modesty, but there is no false pride.

- Jules Reynard
By profession I am a soldier and take pride in that fact. But I am prouder -- infinitely prouder -- to be a father. A soldier destroys in order to build; the father only builds, never destroys. The one has the potentiality of death; the other embodies creation and life. And while the hordes of death are mighty, the battalions of life are mightier still. It is my hope that my son, when I am gone, will remember me not from the battle field but in the home repeating with him our simple daily prayer, Our Father Who Art in Heaven.

- Macarthur, Douglas
The actors today really need the whip hand. They're so lazy. They haven't got the sense of pride in their profession that the less socially elevated musical comedy and music hall people or acrobats have. The theater has never been any good since the actors became gentlemen.

- Auden, W. H.
If wild my breast and sore my pride, I bask in dreams of suicide, If cool my heart and high my head I think "How lucky are the dead.

- Dorothy Parker
Where there are no tigers, a wild cat is very self-important.

- Proverb, Korean
The Landlord is a gentleman who does not earn his wealth. He has a host of agents and clerks that receive for him. He does not even take the trouble to spend his wealth. He has a host of people around him to do the actual spending. He never sees it until he comes to enjoy it. His sole function, his chief pride, is the stately consumption of wealth produced by others.

- George, David Lloyd
To know a man, observe how he wins his object, rather than how he loses it; for when we fail, our pride supports; when we succeed; it betrays us.

- C. C. Colton
OBLIVION, n. The state or condition in which the wicked cease from struggling and the dreary are at rest. Fame's eternal dumping ground. Cold storage for high hopes. A place where ambitious authors meet their works without pride and their betters without envy. A dormitory without an alarm clock.

- Ambrose Bierce
There are many kinds of smiles, each having a distinct character. Some announce goodness and sweetness, others betray sarcasm, bitterness and pride; some soften the countenance by their languishing tenderness, others brighten by their spiritual vivacity.

- Lavater, Johann Kaspar
At every trifle take offense, that always shows great pride or little sense.

- Pope, Alexander
