Benjamin Franklin
He that falls in love with himself will have no rivals.
C.S. Lewis
Pride gets no pleasure out of having something, only out of having more of it than the next man.
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.
Carl Jung
Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves. But deep down below the surface of the average conscience a still, small voice says to us, something is out of tune.
Charles Caleb Colton
There is a paradox in pride: it makes some men ridiculous, but prevents others from becoming so.
Frank Tyger
Swallow your pride occasionally, it's not fattening.
Fulton J. Sheen
Pride is an admission of weakness; it secretly fears all competition and dreads all rivals.
Henry Mencken
The essence of a self-reliant and autonomous culture is an unshakeable egoism.
Nachman Of Bratslav
The man who acts humble in order to win praise is guilty of the lowest form of pride.
