PostSubject: Pride   Sat 4 Mar - 10:22

What they said about Pride:

"Though pride is not a virtue, it is the parent of many virtues."

Author: George Chapman

"Pride is an admission of weakness; it secretly fears all competition and dreads all rivals."

Author: Fulton John Sheen

"Pride breakfasted with Plenty, dined with Poverty, supped with Infamy."

Author: Benjamin Franklin

"Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us."

-Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

"Avarice, envy, pride,
Three fatal sparks, have set the hearts of all
On Fire."

-TheDivine Comedy, Dante Alighieri

The only magic is perseverance
