Pride quotes
Pride
Friends and neighbors, the taxes are indeed very heavy, and if those laid on by the government were the only ones we had to pay, we might more easily discharge them; but we have many others, and much more grievous to some of us. We are taxed twice as much by our idleness, three times as much by our pride, and four times as much by our folly; and from these taxes the commissioners cannot ease or deliver us by allowing abatement.

- Franklin, Benjamin
At the same time, as social beings, we are moved in the relations with our fellow beings by such feelings as sympathy, pride, hate, need for power, pity, and so on.

- Einstein, Albert
When science discovers the center of the universe a lot of people will be disappointed to find they are not it.

- Baily, Bernard
There is false modesty, but there is no false pride.

- Jules Reynard
Nothing is ever done beautifully which is done in rivalship: or nobly, which is done in pride.

- Ruskin, John
A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you're looking down, you can't see something that's above you.

- Lewis, C. S.
It is not enough for theory to describe and analyze, it must itself be an event in the universe it describes. In order to do this theory must partake of and become the acceleration of this logic. It must tear itself from all referents and take pride only in the future. Theory must operate on time at the cost of a deliberate distortion of present reality.

- Baudrillard, Jean
A self-made man? Yes, and one who worships his creator.

- Cowper, William
Swallow your pride occasionally, it's not fattening.

- Tyger, Frank
Who hateth me but for my happiness? Or who is honour'd now but for his wealth? Rather had I, a Jew, be hated thus, Than pitied in a Christian poverty; For I can see no fruits in all their faith, But malice, falsehood, and excessive pride, Which methinks fits not their profession.

- Christopher Marlowe
Pride does not wish to owe and vanity does not wish to pay.

- Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Nothing has been purchased more dearly than the little bit of reason and sense of freedom which now constitutes our pride.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
I am the greatest. Not only do I knock em out, I pick the round!

- Ali, Muhammad
God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble [James 4:6]

- Bible
Let your actions always speak for you, but be forever on guard against the terrible traps of false pride and conceit that can halt your progress. The next time you are tempted to boast, just place your fist in a full pail of water, and when you remove it, the hole remaining will give you a correct measure of your importance.

- Mandino, Og
The rich swell up with pride, the poor from hunger.

- Aleichem, Sholom
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
Almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

- Steve Jobs
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
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
