Pride quotes
Pride
Begin with small things--you cannot enter into the presence of another human being without finding there more to do than you or I or any soul will ever learn to do perfectly before we die. Let us be content to do little if God sets us little tasks. It is but pride and self-will which says, "Give me something huge to fight and I shall enjoy that--but why make me sweep the dust?"

- Letters and Memories. 1854.
He that toucheth pitch shall be defiled therewith; and he that hath fellowship with a proud man shall be like unto him. [Ecclesiasticus 13:1]

- Bible
I pride myself on the fact that my work has no socially redeeming value.

- John Waters
He didn't come out of my belly, but my God, I've made his bones, because I've attended to every meal, and how he sleeps, and the fact that he swims like a fish because I took him to the ocean. I'm so proud of all those things. But he is my biggest pride.

- Lennon, John
The pride of youth is in strength and beauty, the pride of old age is in discretion.

- Democritus
The God of this world is riches, pleasure and pride.

- Luther, Martin
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.

- Johann Kaspar Lavater
Pride is seldom delicate; it will please itself with very mean advantages.

- Johnson
The nobler the blood the less the pride.

- Proverb, Danish
I am done with great things and big plans, great institutions and big success. I am for those tiny, invisible loving human forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, which, if given time, will rend the hardest monuments of pride.

- James, William
Pride sullies the noblest character.

- Claudianus
I would not unduly praise the virtue of restraint. It is often merely temperamental. But it is not always a sign of coldness. It may be pride. There can be nothing more humiliating than to see the shaft of one's emotion miss the mark of either laughter or tears. Nothing more humiliating! And this for the reason that should the mark be missed, should the open display of emotion fail to move, then it must perish unavoidably in disgust or contempt.

- Conrad, Joseph
Although most of us know Vincent van Gogh in Arles and Paul Gauguin in Tahiti as if they were neighbors -- somewhat disreputable but endlessly fascinating -- none of us can name two French generals or department store owners of that period. I take enormous pride in considering myself an artist, one of the necessaries.

- Michener, James A.
Pride is the chief cause in the decline in the number of husbands and wives.

- Neil Diamond
The owl of ignorance lays the egg of pride.

- Proverb
Pride goeth before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall. [Proverbs 16:18]

- Bible
Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.

- Kahlil Gibran
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.
It's a fine thing to rise above pride, but you must have pride in order to do so.

- Bernanos, Georges
I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed. [Luke 16:3]

- Bible
