“Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before stumbling.”

— Proverbs 16:18


“… The essential vice, the utmost evil, is Pride.  Unchastity, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that, are mere fleabites in comparison:  it was through Pride that the devil became the devil:  Pride leads to every other vice:  it is the complete anti-God state of mind.”

— C. S. Lewis, Mere Christianity


“It is in vain, O men, that you seek within yourselves the remedy for your ills. All your light can only reach the knowledge that not in yourselves will you find truth or good. The philosophers have promised you that, and have been unable to do it. They neither know what is your true good, nor what is your true state. How could they have given remedies for your ills, when they did not even know them? Your chief maladies are pride, which takes you away from God, and lust, which binds you to earth; and they have done nothing else but cherish one or other of these diseases.”

— Blaise Pascal, Pensees, 430


“Do not love the world, nor the things in the world.  If any one loves the world, the love of he Father is not in him.  For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world.”

     — 1 John 2:15, 16


They are  inclosed in their own fat:

With their mouth they speak proudly.”

 — Psalm 17:10
