Pride quotes by Jonathan Glover

Pride quotes by Cassandra Clare

Pride quotes by Pablo Neruda
#4. I do not love you as if you were salt-rose or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms,
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers.
Thanks to your love a certain fragrance,
risen darkly from the earth, lives darkly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride,
so I love you because I know no other way than this:
where "I" does not exist, nor "you,"
So close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
So close that your eyes close and I fall asleep. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Pride quotes by M.L. Forman
#5. Remember-doubts may check pride, but too much doubt will keep you from doing what must be done. #Quote by M.L. Forman
Pride quotes by Brian D. McLaren
#6. and somehow, the more we would face our own demons of pride, greed, and lust, the more gentle and kind we would become toward others, the less judgmental, the less harsh, the more empathetic, because we realize as never before that everyone is pitched in an invisible inner battle, and the battle isn't easy for anyone. #Quote by Brian D. McLaren
Pride quotes by Samuel Johnson
#7. I hate a fellow whom pride or cowardice or laziness drives into a corner, and who does nothing when he is there but sit and growl. Let him come out as I do, and bark. Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Pride quotes by Lucille Kallen
#8. My idea of success was to be a boy - possibly because my brothers, Leon and Arthur, were my father's pride and joy, whereas he had to be introduced to me several times before he got it firmly planted in his mind that I was part of the family ... #Quote by Lucille Kallen
Pride quotes by Sheryl Crow
#9. I pride myself on finding balance. I love making music and I love raising my boys - I find time to make both a priority. #Quote by Sheryl Crow
Pride quotes by Michelle Franklin
#10. The silver streaks in his hair, the deep curogations in his forehead, the estuaries at the corners of his eyes were marks of pride to one who had seen countless battles and fought many wars. The map of his features bespoke his many years of triumph and tribulation, and he was glad to wear the aspect of so accomplished a soldier, glad to earn the prize of old age. #Quote by Michelle Franklin
Pride quotes by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
#11. As Shantideva says, suffering has many good qualities because it purifies our negative karma, increases our renunciation and compassion, reduces our pride, and helps us to overcome our bad mental habits. If we think in this way we will feel that difficult circumstances are our best friends. When our mind is balanced in this way it becomes as stable as Mount Meru, and nothing can cause it to shake. #Quote by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Pride quotes by Brandon Bays
#12. From Freedom is:
"True forgiveness is one of the most healing relasing, and freeing gifts we give to ourselves."

"You can't fake it (forgivenss). It has to come from an open heart. It has to be real. Otherwise it is pointless. In order to fruly forgive, you must be willing to open your heart and face and release the pain there."
"It requires humility. It requites us to give up our rightenous indignation, get off our soapbox, let go of blame, and le go of th pride of being right. It means we have to be willing to drop our victim story, soften our stance, and if necessary, let our heart be broken wide open." Brandon Bays Chapter 8 on forgiveness. #Quote by Brandon Bays
Pride quotes by George R R Martin
#13. I am Cersei of House Lannister, a lion of the Rock, the rightful queen of these Seven Kingdoms, trueborn daughter of Tywin Lannister. And hair grows back. #Quote by George R R Martin
Pride quotes by John Le Carre
#14. Some fieldmen, and particularly the clever ones, take a perverse pride in not knowing the whole picture. Their art consists in the deft handling of loose ends, and stops there stubbornly. #Quote by John Le Carre
Pride quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#15. The walls weren't moving, and the room was open - gaping. No colors, but shades of darkness, of night . Only those star-flecked violet eyes were bright, full of color and light. He gave me a lazy smile before he leaned forward.
I pulled away, but his hands were like shackles. I could do nothing as his mouth met with my cheek, and he licked away a tear. His tongue was hot against my skin, so startling that I couldn't move as he licked away another path of salt water, and then another. My body went taut and loose all at once and I burned, even as chills shuddered along my limbs. It was only when his tongue danced along the damp edges of my lashes that I jerked back.
He chuckled as I scrambled for the corner of the cell. I wiped my face as I glared at him.
He smirked, sitting down against a wall. "I figured that would get you to stop crying."
"It was disgusting." I wiped my face again.
"Was it?" He quirked an eyebrow and pointed to his palm - to the place where my tattoo would be. "Beneath all your pride and stubbornness, I could have sworn I detected something that felt differently. Interesting."
"Get out."
"As usual, your gratitude is overwhelming. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Pride quotes by Richard Wilbur
#16. What is our praise or pride but to imagine excellence and try to make it? What does it say over the door of heaven; but, homo (sapiens) fecit? #Quote by Richard Wilbur
Pride quotes by Charley Pride
#17. There were no guarantees that country music, whose roots were in the South, were ready for Charley Pride. #Quote by Charley Pride
Pride quotes by Albert Einstein
#18. A true genius admits that he/she knows nothing. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Pride quotes by Audre Lorde
#19. We do not have to romanticize our past in order to be aware of how it seeds our present. We do not have to suffer the waste of an amnesia that robs us of the lessons of the past rather than permit us to read them with pride as well as deep understanding. We know what it is to be lied to, and we know how important it is not lie to ourselves. We are powerful because we have survived, and that is what it is all about - survival and growth. #Quote by Audre Lorde
Pride quotes by Louis MacNeice
#20. Let us thank God for valour in abstraction
For those who go their own way, will not kiss
The arse of law and order nor compound
For physical comfort at the price of pride #Quote by Louis MacNeice
Pride quotes by Red Auerbach
#21. Who could better motivate Bill Russell than Bill Russell? #Quote by Red Auerbach
Pride quotes by Christy Wright
#22. Three bricklayers were working on the same building. When asked what they were doing, the first answered grumpily, "I'm laying bricks." The second replied with a bit more vision, "I'm putting up a wall." The third bricklayer's response was different. He replied enthusiastically and with pride, "I'm building a beautiful cathedral. It will be the finest building in town, and it will be a place of peace and comfort for everyone who walks by it!" What a difference knowing why makes. When you know why you do it, even the most mundane work can become meaningful. #Quote by Christy Wright
Pride quotes by Alan Dean Foster
#23. A few, less constrained by pride and more resilient, survived and had children. Their offspring grew up with no illusions about the supremacy of humankind or anykind. They matured and observed the world around them through different eyes. Roll the log. Give and take. Bend with the wind. Adapt, adapt, adapt ... ! #Quote by Alan Dean Foster
Pride quotes by Samuel Rutherford
#24. It is the Lord's kindness that he will take the scum off us in the fire. Who know how needful winnowing is to us and what dross we have before we enter the kingdom of God? So narrow is the entry to heaven that our knots, lumps of pride, self-love, idol-love, and world-love must be hammered off us, that we may stoop low and creep through into that narrow entry. #Quote by Samuel Rutherford
Pride quotes by Alexis Carrel
#25. Those who desire to rise as high as our human condition allows, must renounce intellectual pride, the omnipotence of clear thinking, belief in the absolute power of logic. #Quote by Alexis Carrel
Pride quotes by Norman Mailer
#26. Poems should be like pins which prick the skin of boredom and leave a glow equal in its pride to the gate of the sadist who stuck the pin and walked away #Quote by Norman Mailer
Pride quotes by Alistair Begg
#27. Would anyone choose Hell over Heaven? YES! Why? Pride. They don't want to go in the only way you can go in, on your knees. They don't want to admit they are a failure, that their life is a mess. #Quote by Alistair Begg
Pride quotes by Jawaharlal Nehru
#28. Our lives are encumbered with the dead wood of this past; all that is dead and has served its purpose has to go. But that does not mean a break with, or a forgetting of, the vital and life-giving in that past. We can never forget the ideals that have moved our race, the dreams of the Indian people through the ages, the wisdom of the ancients, the buoyant energy and love of life and nature of our forefathers, their spirit of curiosity and mental adventure, the daring of their thought, their splendid achievements in literature, art and culture, their love of truth and beauty and freedom, the basic values that they set up, their understanding of life's mysterious ways, their toleration of other ways than theirs, their capacity to absorb other peoples and their cultural accomplishments, to synthesize them and develop a varied and mixed culture; nor can we forget the myriad experiences which have built up our ancient race and lie embedded in our sub-conscious minds. We will never forget them or cease to take pride in that noble heritage of ours. If India forgets them she will no longer remain India and much that has made her our joy and pride will cease to be. #Quote by Jawaharlal Nehru
Pride quotes by Nadia Hashimi
#29. Shekiba was born at the turn of the twentieth century, in an Afghanistan eyed lasciviously by Russia and Britain. Each would take turns promising to protect the borders they had just invaded, like a pedophile who professes to love his victim.
The borders between Afghanistan and India were drawn and redrawn from time to time, as if only penciled in. People belonged to one country and then the other, nationalities changing as often as the direction of the wind. For Great Britain and the Soviet Union, Afghanistan was the playing field for their "Great Game," the power struggle to control Central Asia. But the game was slowly coming to an end, the Afghan people ferociously resisting outside control. Chests expanded with pride when Afghans talked about their resilience.
But parts of Afghanistan were taken - little by little until its borders shrank in like a wool sweater left in the rain. Areas to the north like Samarkand and Bukhara had been lost to the Russian Empire. Chunks of the south were chipped away and the western front was pushed in over the years. #Quote by Nadia Hashimi
Pride quotes by Jane Austen
#30. May we take my uncle's letter to read to her? Take whatever you like, and get away. #Quote by Jane Austen
Pride quotes by George MacDonald
#31. I doubt if wickedness does half as much harm as sectarianism, whether it be the sectarianism of the church or of dissent, the sectarianism whose virtue is condescension, or the sectarianism whose vice is pride. Division has done more to hide Christ from the view of men, than all the infidelity that has ever been spoken. It is the half-Christian clergy of every denomination that are the main cause of the so-called failure of the Church of Christ. #Quote by George MacDonald
Pride quotes by W.P. Kinsella
#32. I am more than a little jealous that the wonder I am party to has been sprinkled over Salinger's gray head. #Quote by W.P. Kinsella
Pride quotes by Bruce Lee
#33. Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life! Do not be concerned with escaping safely- lay your life before him!! #Quote by Bruce Lee
Pride quotes by Patrick Dixon
#34. Connect with all the passions people have -for themselves, their families, their communities and wider world - and they will follow you to the ends of the earth, buy your products and services with pride, and may even be willing to work for you for next to nothing. #Quote by Patrick Dixon
Pride quotes by T. Kingfisher
#35. It is somehow easier to face things when one is not alone. Courage still does most of the heavy lifting, but Pride gets its shoulder in there, too, just to keep you from embarrassing yourself in front of the other person...or hedgehog, as the case may be. #Quote by T. Kingfisher
Pride quotes by Alfred Lansing
#36. In that instant they felt an overwhelming sense of pride and accomplishment. Though they had failed dismally even to come close to the expedition's original objective, they knew now that somehow they had done much, much more than ever they set out to do. #Quote by Alfred Lansing
Pride quotes by Joanna Baillie
#37. Tis ever thus: indulgence spoils the base;
Raising up pride, and lawless turbulence,
Like noxious vapors from the fulsome marsh
When morning shines upon it. #Quote by Joanna Baillie
Pride quotes by Kazuya Minekura
#38. With a strength I can be proud of, I live only for myself, and only die for myself. I'll never die for someone, cause I know the pain of who remains alive, this is my pride. #Quote by Kazuya Minekura
Pride quotes by Robert Walser
#39. I contemplated pride and love. All this contemplativeness. When will I be free of it? #Quote by Robert Walser
Pride quotes by Howard Schultz
#40. There is a word that comes to my mind when I think about our company and our people. That word is 'love.' I love Starbucks because everything we've tried to do is steeped in humanity.
Respect and dignity.
Passion and laughter.
Compassion, community, and responsibility.
Authenticity.
These are Starbucks' touchstones, the source of our pride.
Valuing personal connections at a time when so many people sit alone in front of screens; aspiring to build human relationships in an age when so many issues polarize so many; and acting ethically, even if it costs more, when corners are routinely cut
these are honorable pursuits, at the core of what we set out to be. #Quote by Howard Schultz
Pride quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#41. Moreover, I have boundary issues with men. Or maybe that's not fair to say. To have issues with boundaries, one must have boundaries in the first place, right? But I disappear into
the person I love. I am the permeable membrane. If I love you, you can have everything. You can have my time, my devotion, my ass, my money, my family, my dog, my dog's money, my
dog's time - everything. If I love you, I will carry for you all your pain, I will assume for you all your debts (in every definition of the word), I will protect you from your own insecurity, I will project upon you all sorts of good qualities that you have never actually cultivated in yourself and I will buy Christmas presents for your entire family. I will give you the sun and the rain, and if they are not available, I will give you a sun check and a rain check. I will give you all this and more, until I get so exhausted and depleted that the only way I can recover my energy is by becoming infatuated with someone else.
I do not relay these facts about myself with pride, but this is how it's always been.
Some time after I'd left my husband, I was at a party and a guy I barely knew said to me, "You know, you seem like a completely different person, now that you're with this new boyfriend. You used to look like your husband, but now you look like David. You even dress like
him and talk like him. You know how some people look like their dogs? I think maybe you always look like your men. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert
Pride quotes by V.S. Naipaul
#42. For the first time in his life he began to experience a kind of true pride. He felt himself, so to speak, taking up space when he walked in the streets; and he wondered whether this was how other people felt all the time, without effort, all the secure people he met in London and Africa. #Quote by V.S. Naipaul
Pride quotes by Gillian Flynn
#43. Nick Dunne took my pride and my dignity and my hope and my money. He took and took from me until I no longer existed. That's murder. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Pride quotes by Alexandra Robbins
#44. Studies have shown that, at least among students, popularity equals visibility. #Quote by Alexandra Robbins
Pride quotes by Ellen Kaplan
#45. A Puritan twist in our nature makes us think that anything good for us must be twice as good if it's hard to swallow. Learning Greek and Latin used to play the role of character builder, since they were considered to be as exhausting and unrewarding as digging a trench in the morning and filling it up in the afternoon. It was what made a man, or a woman -- or more likely a robot -- of you. Now math serves that purpose in many schools: your task is to try to follow rules that make sense, perhaps, to some higher beings; and in the end to accept your failure with humbled pride. As you limp off with your aching mind and bruised soul, you know that nothing in later life will ever be as difficult.

What a perverse fate for one of our kind's greatest triumphs! Think how absurd it would be were music treated this way (for math and music are both excursions into sensuous structure): suffer through playing your scales, and when you're an adult you'll never have to listen to music again. And this is mathematics we're talking about, the language in which, Galileo said, the Book of the World is written. This is mathematics, which reaches down into our deepest intuitions and outward toward the nature of the universe -- mathematics, which explains the atoms as well as the stars in their courses, and lets us see into the ways that rivers and arteries branch. For mathematics itself is the study of connections: how things ideally must and, in fact, do sort together -- beyond, around, #Quote by Ellen Kaplan
Pride quotes by Markus Zusak
#46. He's been to the brink and come back. I guess when you lose your pride, even for just a moment, you realise how much it means to you. #Quote by Markus Zusak
Pride quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#47. You see the grandmother down there with her son and grandson? They've probably been coming here for years together. Or maybe it's their first trip. Either way, it's three generations sitting down together, laying aside their differences for one night to be a family. This is humanity, Steele. This is what we're fighting for. Family. People. Pride. It's our differences that make up our strength. BAD isn't about patriotism. It's about saving individuals. Not just those in America, but all the ones who are out there going about their lives with little to no care about politics. Men, women, and children who only want to live peacefully while others are looking for ways to use them as pawns in a deadly game they don't even want to play. (Joe) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Pride quotes by Saleem Haddad
#48. In America the gay world touched my life at the margins, though references and images and occasional conversations with men and women who celebrated their homosexuality with pride. As far as I could see there was nothing to be proud about. There was only pain, humiliation and shame. If I were to join this group, I would have to act proud and hide my feelings of rejection and loneliness. If I were to show these men and women that I was terrified for my future, I would be regarded as misguided or a victim of Islam or Arabness. But if there was one thing I wsa certain of it was that there was nothing misguided about my feelings, and I did not feel that Islam or my Arabness was to blame. If I were to join this group, I would simply go from the repressiveness of secrecy to the repressiveness of pride. I didn't despise my shame. I had no reason to do so. My shame illuminated my intense attachment to the world, my desire to be connected with others. #Quote by Saleem Haddad
Pride quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#49. Both of us hope and trust that our daughters, whether married or single, will be the pride and comfort of our lives. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Pride quotes by W. Edwards Deming
#50. All anyone asks for is a chance to work with pride. #Quote by W. Edwards Deming
Pride quotes by Charley Pride
#51. People pay attention to lyrics, and the race matter was delicate. #Quote by Charley Pride
Pride quotes by Charley Pride
#52. My brothers and sisters all sang, too, and they all have good voices. #Quote by Charley Pride
Pride quotes by Robert Galbraith
#53. She thought of the day that Matthew had asked her out for the very first time and remembered walking home from school, her insides on fire with excitement and pride. She remembered Sarah Shadlock giggling, leaning against him in a pub in Bath, and Matthew frowning slightly and pulling away. She thought of Strike and Elin . . . what have they got to do with anything? #Quote by Robert Galbraith
Pride quotes by Shawn Achor
#54. Barbara Fredrickson, a researcher at the University of North Carolina and perhaps the world's leading expert on the subject, describes the ten most common positive emotions: "joy, gratitude, serenity, interest, hope, pride, amusement, inspiration, awe, and love. #Quote by Shawn Achor
Pride quotes by Pope Francis
#55. Humility saves man: pride makes him lose his way. #Quote by Pope Francis
Pride quotes by Timothy Keller
#56. Lord, there has never been a human society without overweening pride at the top and bitter envy at the bottom. That is why if the "have-nots" ever overthrow the "haves" they become the same. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Pride quotes by Ronald Reagan
#57. The glory of this land has been its capacity for transcending the moral evils of our past. For example, the long struggle of minority citizens for equal rights, once a source of disunity and civil war, is now a point of pride for all Americans. We must never go back. There is no room for racism, anti-Semitism, or other forms of ethnic and racial hatred in this country. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Pride quotes by Baron D'Holbach
#58. In Nature nothing; is mean or contemptible, and it is only pride, originating in a false idea of our superiority, which causes our contempt for some of her productions. In the eyes of Nature, however, the oyster that vegetates at the bottom of the sea is as dear and perfect as the proud biped who devours it. #Quote by Baron D'Holbach
Pride quotes by David Wright
#59. I take great pride in going out there and playing through pain. #Quote by David Wright
Pride quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#60. Only during a period of war does it become obvious how millions of people can be manipulated. People, millions of people, are filled with pride while doing things which those same people actually consider stupid, evil, dangerous, painful, and criminal, and they strongly criticize these things - but continue doing them. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Pride quotes by Joseph J. Ellis
#61. Because he could not afford to fail, he could not afford to trust. #Quote by Joseph J. Ellis
Pride quotes by Emmuska Orczy
#62. Had she put turned back then, she would have seen that which would have made her own sufferings seem but light and easy to bear-a strong man, overwhelmed with his own passion and his own despair. Pride had given way at last, obstinacy was gone: the will was powerless. He was but a man madly, blindly, passionately in love, and as soon as her light footstep had died away within the house, he knelt down upon the terrace steps, and in the very madness of his love he kissed one by one the places where her small foot had trodden, and the stone balustrade there, were her tiny hand had rested last. #Quote by Emmuska Orczy
Pride quotes by Jack London
#63. Seven days from the time they pulled into Dawson, they dropped down the steep bank by the Barracks to the Yukon Trail, and pulled for Dyea and Salt Water. Perrault was carrying despatches if anything more urgent than those he had brought in; also, the travel pride had gripped him, and he purposed to make the record trip of the year. Several things favored him in this. The week's rest had recuperated the dogs and put them in thorough trim. The trail they had broken into the country was packed hard by later journeyers. And further, the police had arranged in two or three places deposits of grub for dog and man, and he was travelling light. #Quote by Jack London
Pride quotes by Terry Pratchett
#64. Well,' said Tiffany, 'there's too much to be done and not enough people to do it.' The smile that the kelda gave her was a strange one. The little woman said, 'Do ye let them try? Ye mustn't be afraid to ask for help. Pride is a good thing, my girl, but it will kill you in time. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Pride quotes by Jeremy Aldana
#65. A man's spirit is free, but his pride binds him with chains of suffocation in a prison of his own insecurities #Quote by Jeremy Aldana
Pride quotes by Nicolas Gomez Davila
#66. The modern mentality is the child of human pride puffed up by commercial advertising. #Quote by Nicolas Gomez Davila
Pride quotes by Robert Levering
#67. A great place to work is one in which you trust the people you work for, have pride in what you do, and enjoy the people you work with. #Quote by Robert Levering
Pride quotes by Cassandra Clare
#68. Faeries are fallen angels," said Dorothea, "cast down out of heaven for their pride."
"That's the legend," Jace said. "It's also said that they're the offspring of demons and angels, which always seemed more likely to me. Good and evil, mixing together. Faeries are as beautiful as angels are supposed to be, but they have a lot of mischief and cruelty in them. And you'll notice most of them avoid midday sunlight - "
"For the devil has no power," said Dorothea softly, as if she were reciting an old rhyme, "except in the dark. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Pride quotes by Nuruddin Abdur-Rahman Jami
#69. Many of those who strive to overcome pride are hoping to puff themselves up with this triumph. #Quote by Nuruddin Abdur-Rahman Jami
Pride quotes by Ismail Haniyeh
#70. Israel no longer has allies in Egypt and in Tunisia, we are saying to the Zionist enemies that times have changed and that the time of the Arab Spring, the time of the revolution, of dignity and of pride has arrived. #Quote by Ismail Haniyeh
Pride quotes by J.C. Ryle
#71. Pride cast Adam out of paradise. He was not content with the place God assigned him. He tried to raise himself, and fell. Thus sin, sorrow and death entered into this world by pride. #Quote by J.C. Ryle
Pride quotes by A.L.O.E.
#72. Be on your guard against the Pride that repels advice, resents reproof, and refuses to own a fault. #Quote by A.L.O.E.
Pride quotes by Neil M. Gunn
#73. In a few moments he came into the core of himself, where he was alone, and felt strangely companioned, not by anyone or anything, but by himself. The rejected self found refuge here, not a cowed refuge, but somehow a wandering ease; as if it were indestructible, and had its own final pride, its own secret eyes. #Quote by Neil M. Gunn
Pride quotes by Jane Austen
#74. You are mistaken, Mr. Darcy, if you suppose that the mode of your declaration affected me in any other way, than as it spared the concern which I might have felt in refusing you, had you behaved in a more gentlemanlike manner. (Elizabeth Bennett) #Quote by Jane Austen
Pride quotes by Jamie O'Neill
#75. - Help these boys build a nation their own. Ransack the histories for clues to their past. Plunder the literatures for words they can speak. And should you encounter an ancient tribe whose customs, however dimly, cast light on their hearts, tell them that tale; and you shall name the unspeakable names of your kind, and in that naming, in each such telling, they will falter a step to the light.
- For only with pride may a man prosper. With pride, all things follow. Without he have pride he is a shadowy skulk whose season is night. #Quote by Jamie O'Neill
Pride quotes by James F. Cooper
#76. It is seldom men think of death in the pride of their health and strength. #Quote by James F. Cooper
Pride quotes by Clifton Adams
#77. It grows inside you, poisonous and festering, and it tells you its name is Pride, but it's a liar. Its name is Hate. #Quote by Clifton Adams
Pride quotes by S.J. Kincaid
#78. There's not a person in history who achieved greatness without choking back some pride, without ever smiling at someone they despised, without playing along even if they hated the very idea of it #Quote by S.J. Kincaid
Pride quotes by Mohammed Reza Pahlavi
#79. Pride comes before a fall- although in [Henry Kissinger's] case it's more conceit than pride. #Quote by Mohammed Reza Pahlavi
Pride quotes by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
#80. O be very sure That no man will learn anything at all, Unless he first will learn humility. #Quote by Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Pride quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#81. More faults are created than cured by professional teachers. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Pride quotes by Marquis De Sade
#82. The President was in seventh heaven when he heard himself being teased like this; he strutted about and thrust his chest out; never did a man of the robe stick out his neck so far, not even one who has just hanged a man. #Quote by Marquis De Sade
Pride quotes by Ziad K. Abdelnour
#83. Wealth creation is not a mathematical formula, as the truthseeking
quant geeks still want everyone to believe. In the end, their
lack of real-world experience and pride corrupted their mathematical
genius and destroyed them. You may be able to digitize a daVinci,
but that does not make it daVinci. Creating wealth is personal. It is
creating assets, creating value, or whatever act of self-perpetuation that
drives us to create a legacy. #Quote by Ziad K. Abdelnour
Pride quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#84. He never hears the truth about himself by not wishing to hear it. Pope Alexander #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Pride quotes by Rick Perlstein
#85. One of the ladies asked about that awful Bobby Kennedy, and Goldwater responded by speaking about the attorney general with touching affection. (Mary) McGrory recalled how Jack Kennedy behaved at a similar stage in his campaign: spouting statistics, attacking carefully chosen enemies and puffing all the right friends, quoting dead Greeks, never cracking a joke lest he remind the voters how young he was. #Quote by Rick Perlstein
Pride quotes by Christina Engela
#86. You are strong, tempered like steel in the fire and by the blows of the hammer of life. Nothing will break you again, only make you stronger and more whole. Perfection is the pride of those who have not lived, who know not these things in their arrogance. They remain the same - raw and without form. The hammer never touches them, and they lie on the shelf, gathering dust, slowly tarnishing and fading and crumbling. the blows of the hammer in the fire refine us into bright shining glory for the roles we play in life - until we are one with the anvil, becoming immune to the hammer's little knocks, and smile at it. #Quote by Christina Engela
Pride quotes by Toni Sorenson
#87. Success demands a price that only a few are willing to pay ... blood, flesh, time, money, pride, heartbreak and energy. Anyone who has ever succeeded has the battle scars to prove the sacrifices they've made. #Quote by Toni Sorenson
Pride quotes by Joseph Williams
#88. I find afflictions to be good for me. I have always found them so. Afflictions are happy means in the hands of the Holy Spirit to subdue my corruptions, my pride, my evil passions, my inordinate love to the creature. Afflictions soften my hard heart, bring me to my knees, increase faith, increase love, increase humility, increase self-denial. Afflictions make me poor in spirit, and nothing in my own eyes. #Quote by Joseph Williams
Pride quotes by George Washington
#89. Citizens by birth or choice of a common country, that country has a right to concentrate your affections. The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. #Quote by George Washington
Pride quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#90. Anger is rooted in our lack of understanding of ourselves and of the causes, deep-seated as well as immediate, that brought about this unpleasant state of affairs. Anger is also rooted in desire, pride, agitation, and suspicion. The primary roots of our anger are in ourselves. Our environment and other people are only secondary. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Pride quotes by Timothy Keller
#91. Pride is unstable because other people are absentmindedly or intentionally treating the proud man's ego with less reverence than he thinks it deserves. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Pride quotes by Scott Hildreth
#92. And maybe, just maybe, the ten hours of hot summer wind blowing past my face would dry the tears of pride which were beginning to roll down my cheeks. #Quote by Scott Hildreth
Pride quotes by Henry Miller
#93. A little later, strolling about the town, I, stopped into a shop near the museum, where they sold souvenirs and post-cards. I looked over the cards leisurely; the ones I liked best were soiled and wrinkled. The man, who spoke French fluently, offered to make the cards presentable. He asked me to wait a few minutes while he ran over to the house and cleaned and ironed them. He said he would make them look like new. I was so dumbfounded that before I could say anything he had disappeared, leaving me in charge of the shop. After a few minutes his wife came in. I thought she looked strange for a Greek woman. After a few words had passed I realized that she was French and she, when she learned that I hailed from Paris, was overjoyed to speak with me. We got along beautifully until she began talking about Greece. She hated Crete, she said. It was too dry, too dusty, too hot, too bare. She missed the beautiful trees of Normandy, the gardens with the high walls, the orchards, and so on. Didn't I agree with her? I said NO, flatly. "Monsieur!" she said, rising up in her pride and dignity, as if I had slapped her in the face.

"I don't miss anything," I said, pressing the point home. "I think this is marvellous. I don't like your gardens with their high walls, I don't like your pretty little orchards and your well-cultivated-fields. I like this …" and I pointed outdobrs to the dusty road on which a sorely-laden donkey was plodding along dejectedly. "But it's not civilized," sh #Quote by Henry Miller
Pride quotes by Thomas Aquinas
#94. The heads of the Church ought therefore to imitate Christ in being affable, adapting Himself to women, laying His hands on children, and washing His disciples' feet, that they also should do the same to their brethren. But we are such, that we seem to go beyond the pride even of the great ones of this world; as to the command of Christ, either not understanding it, or setting it at nought. Like princes we seek hosts to go before us, we make ourselves awful and difficult of access, especially to the poor, neither approaching them, nor suffering them to approach us. #Quote by Thomas Aquinas
Pride quotes by Chetan M. Kumbhar
#95. Winning cannot become your habit unless defeats have torn you apart
and you sit in the battle field
stitching back yourself
one piece at a time
laughing in the faces of all defeats. #Quote by Chetan M. Kumbhar
Pride quotes by Herbert V. Prochnow
#96. If you would like to live in a community in which you may have pride, then dedicate yourself in a spirit of humility and your responsibilities in that community. #Quote by Herbert V. Prochnow
Pride quotes by Julia Child
#97. To be able to serve and to eat a whole fish, especially a trout, is part of civilized dining. This applies particularly to the young, who should take to it as soon as they can handle knife and fork; this is a fine way for them to begin taking pride in themselves and their abilities. #Quote by Julia Child
Pride quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#98. Fair as a lily, and not only the pride of life, but the desire of his eyes #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Pride quotes by Christmas Humphreys
#99. We will not read of that which hurts our pride or fears or 'feelings'. We forget, or gloss over, or excuse, an experience which injured the tentacles of our personality. We forget the pscyhiatrist's definition of a neurosis as 'refused pain'. In the same way we escape from mental pain. We refuse to believe what we do not like. #Quote by Christmas Humphreys
Pride quotes by Ahmed Zewail
#100. Higher education should be based on quality, not quantity; receive merit-based funding; and be free of unnecessary bureaucracy. Not the least of the benefits of educational reform is to foster the pride of achievement at national and international levels. #Quote by Ahmed Zewail
Pride quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#101. It would be an existence rife with difficulties ... but of a pleasurable kind, difficulties they could take pride in, possess, value, as one would a family heirloom. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Pride quotes by Henry George Bohn
#102. If on creation's morn the king of heaven
To shrubs and flowers a sovereign lord had given,
O beauteous rose, he had anointed thee
Of shrubs and flowers the sovereign lord to be;
The spotless emblem of unsullied truth,
The smile of beauty and the glow of youth,
The garden's pride, the grace of vernal bowers,
The blush of meadows, and the eye of flowers. #Quote by Henry George Bohn
Pride quotes by Henry Home, Lord Kames
#103. The sordid meal of the Cynics contributed neither to their tranquillity nor to their modesty. Pride went with Diogenes into his tub; and there he had the presumption to command Alexander the haughtiest of all men. #Quote by Henry Home, Lord Kames
Pride quotes by Michele Sinclair
#104. It's too bad,my lord," she purred, "that you are too weak and vulnerable to satisfy me."
Ranulf grabbed her wrist and wrenched it from his skin. He pulled her closer so that she stood in between his legs,her face near his. "And just what was it you desired?"
Bronwyn licked her lips and Ranulf realized it was not his humiliation she sought,but to salvage some pride of her own. With his free arm,he reached up to pull on the shirt gathered around his neck. "Angel,I am getting up,and if the only thing I have on are my underclothes...so be it. #Quote by Michele Sinclair
Pride quotes by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
#105. About humility we speak with an analogy: When the branches are full of fruit, they just bow down. #Quote by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Pride quotes by Jane Austen
#106. If you were to give me forty such men, I never could be so happy as you. Till I have your disposition, your goodness, I never can have your happiness. No, no, let me shift for myself; and, perhaps, if I have very good luck, I may meet with another Mr. Collins in time. #Quote by Jane Austen
Pride quotes by Lawrence Durrell
#107. The loved object is simply one that has shared an experience at the same moment of time, narcissistically; and the desire to be near the beloved object is at first not due to the idea of possessing it, but simply to let the two experiences compare themselves, like reflections in different mirrors. All this may precede the first look, kiss, or touch; precede ambition, pride, or envy; precede the first declarations which mark the turning point - for from here love degenerates into habit, possession, and back to loneliness. #Quote by Lawrence Durrell
Pride quotes by Arlie Russell Hochschild
#108. For many of us, work is the one place where we feel appreciated. The things that we long to experience at home - pride in our accomplishments, laughter and fun, relationships that aren't complex - we sometimes experience most often in the office. Bosses applaud us when we do a good job. Co-workers become a kind of family we feel we fit into. #Quote by Arlie Russell Hochschild
Pride quotes by Kathleen Kent
#109. I took a step. And then another. And so it went as we followed Father, who had come to take us forever away from Salem. And with every step I thought of my mother's courage as she faced her judges. With every step I thought of her cleaving to the truth even as she fell the short distance of the rope. With every step I thought of her pride, her strength, her love.
And with every step I thought, I am my mother's daughter, I am my mother's daughter ... #Quote by Kathleen Kent
Pride quotes by Rebecca Manley Pippert
#110. We tend to be taken aback by the thought that God could be angry. how can a deity who is perfect and loving ever be angry? ... We take pride in our tolerance of the excesses of others. So what is God's problem? ... But love detests what destroys the beloved. Real love stands against the deception, the lie, the sin that destroys. Nearly a century ago the theologian E.H. Glifford wrote: 'Human love here offers a true analogy: the more a father loves his son, the more he hates in him the drunkard, the liar, the traitor.' ... Anger isn't the opposite of love. Hate is, and the final form of hate is indifference ... How can a good God forgive bad people without compromising himself? Does he just play fast and loose with the facts? 'Oh, never mind ... boys will be boys'. Try telling that to a survivor of the Cambodian 'killing fields' or to someone who lost an entire family in the Holocaust. No. To be truly good one has to be outraged by evil and implacably hostile to injustice. #Quote by Rebecca Manley Pippert

Pride quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#113. Extravagant sartorial display had a purpose. It created the impression of wealth and power on the opponent and pride in the wearer which has been lost sight of in our nervously egalitarian times. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Pride quotes by Michele Sinclair
#114. So if it wasn't fear or embarrassment,then it had to have been pride spurring her abrupt departure...and her parting words. At least,it better have been,because whether Bronwyn knew it or not, he was the last man she would ever know or touch. #Quote by Michele Sinclair
Pride quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#115. The majority of people have successfully alienated themselves from change; they tediously arrange their lives into a familiar pattern, they give themselves to normalcy, they are proud if they are able to follow in auspicious footsteps set before them, they take pride in always coloring inside the lines and they feel secure if they belong to a batch of others who are like them. Now, if familiar patterns bore you, if normalcy passes before you unnoticed, if you want to create your own footsteps in the earth and leave your own handprints on the skies, if you are the one who doesn't mind the lines in the coloring book as much as others do, and perchance you do not cling to a flock for you to identify with, then you must be ready for adversity. If you are something extraordinary, you are going to always shock others and while they go about existing in their mundaneness which they call success, you're going to be flying around crazy in their skies and that scares them. People are afraid of change, afraid of being different, afraid of doing things and thinking things that aren't a part of their checkerboard game of a life. They only know the pieces and the moves in their games, and that's it. You're always going to find them in the place that you think you're going to find them in, and every time they think about you, you're going to give them a heart attack. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Pride quotes by Deirdre-Elizabeth Parker
#116. I have spent my whole life preparing to be William Wallace's wife. The choices I make are defined by the person I am.
I am Mrs. William Victor Wallace. I am married to a federal felon whom I love unconditionally.
I hold my head high, I take pride in my life and I walk this world without regret.
I will be the perfect wife and my husband deserves nothing less. #Quote by Deirdre-Elizabeth Parker
Pride quotes by C.S. Lewis
#117. There is one vice of which no man in the world is free; which every one in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else; and of which hardly any people, except Christians, ever imagine that they are guilty themselves. [ ... ] There is no fault which makes a man more unpopular, and no fault which we are more unconscious of in ourselves.[ ... ]The vice I am talking of is Pride or Self-Conceit: and the virtue opposite to it, in Christian morals, is called Humility. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Pride quotes by E'yen A. Gardner
#118. The truth is I love you but you reject my love. You would rather be right than loved. #Quote by E'yen A. Gardner
Pride quotes by Dolly Parton
#119. Be the alligator girl. Be whatever your dreams and your luck will let you be. Wear your green cornflakes with pride. Snarl at the crowds, and do your best to make them flinch. Give them a quarter's worth of wonder. #Quote by Dolly Parton
Pride quotes by Hajime Isayama
#120. Some were filled with pride. Some were filled with hope. Some were filled rage. But all of them screamed #Quote by Hajime Isayama
Pride quotes by Lisa Bedrick
#121. Some people only go to church for the social life. They like having all the friends in church or getting the praises of men by doing certain things, but they don't go there to actually worship God. They go there so others can worship THEM instead. #Quote by Lisa Bedrick
Pride quotes by Baudelaire-C
#122. Must one suffer eternally, or eternally flee from beauty? Nature, pitiless enchantress, always victorious rival, let me be! Tempt no longer my desires and my pride! The study of beauty is a duel in which the artist screams with fear before being vanquished. #Quote by Baudelaire-C
Pride quotes by Paramahansa Yogananda
#123. The rains of Life's Blessings cannot gather on mountaintops of pride, but flow easily into valleys of humbleness. #Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda
Pride quotes by Horace Mann
#124. The experience of the ages that are past, the hopes of the ages that are yet to come, unite their voices in an appeal to us; they implore us to think more of the character of our people than of its vast numbers; to look upon our vast natural resources, not as tempters to ostentation and pride, but as means to be converted, by the refining alchemy of education, into mental and spiritual treasures-and thus give to the world the example of a nation whose wisdom increases with its prosperity, and whose virtues are equal to its power. #Quote by Horace Mann
Pride quotes by Edward Gibbon
#125. On the slightest touch the unsupported fabric of their pride and power fell to the ground. The expiring senate displayed a sudden lustre, blazed for a moment, and was extinguished for ever. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Pride quotes by P. Chidambaram

Pride quotes by E.K. Johnston
#127. If you are clever and you are good, the monster will not have you.
You should not believe everything you hear.
Good men fall to monsters everyday. Clever men are tricked by their own pride or by pretty words. #Quote by E.K. Johnston
Pride quotes by Mark Batterson
#128. Self-consciousness isn't just A curse. It is part of THE curse. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Pride quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#129. To forgive, there must have been a wound; and to be wounded, there must have been the gatherings of pride. There is no generosity of heart as long as there is a referential memory, the "me" and the "mine. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Pride quotes by Josephine Winslow Johnson
#130. The question we do not see when we are young is whether we own pride or are owned by it. #Quote by Josephine Winslow Johnson
Pride quotes by Stephen Fry
#131. What other developed democracy has such a ridiculous and squalid history of intolerance? From the imprisonment and roasting of heretics, witches and poachers, to the censorship of literature, art and television: from St Alban through Wilde, Joyce and Lawrence I think we can point with pride to as grim a catalogue of intemperate, bigoted repression as any nation on earth ... #Quote by Stephen Fry
Pride quotes by Edmund Spenser
#132. When I bethinke me on that speech whyleare,
Of Mutability, and well it way:
Me seemes, that though she all vnworthy were
Of the Heav'ns Rule; yet very sooth to say,
In all things else she beares the greatest sway.
Which makes me loath this state of life so tickle,
And loue of things so vaine to cast away;
Whose flowring pride, so fading and so fickle,
Short Time shall soon cut down with his consuming sickle.

Then gin I thinke on that which Nature sayd,
Of that same time when no more Change shall be,
But steadfast rest of all things firmely stayd
Vpon the pillours of Eternity,
That is contrayr to Mutabilitie:
For, all that moueth, doth in Change delight:
But thence-forth all shall rest eternally
With Him that is the God of Sabbaoth hight:
O that great Sabbaoth God, graunt me that Sabbaoth sight. #Quote by Edmund Spenser
Pride quotes by Richard E. Byrd
#133. At the end only two things really matter to a man, regardless of who he is; and they are the affection and understanding of his family. Anything and everything else he creates are insubstantial; they are ships given over to the mercy of the winds and tides of prejudice. but the family is an everlasting anchorage, a quiet harbor where a man's ships can be left to swing to the moorings of pride and loyalty. #Quote by Richard E. Byrd
Pride quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#134. The idea became rooted in my mind that I had a special right to Surabala above that of people in general. So it happened that, in the pride of ownership, at times I punished and tormented her; and she, too, fagged for me and bore all my punishments without complaint. The village was wont to praise her beauty; but in the eyes of a young barbarian like me that beauty had no glory; - I knew only that Surabala had been born in her father's house solely to bear my yoke, and that therefore she was the particular object of my neglect. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Pride quotes by Gerald Weaver
#135. Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice should create in the discerning male reader a deeply rooted concupiscence for Elizabeth Bennet that springs not from her vivacity or from her wit but from her unerring instinct to follow the deeply moral directives of her own character even against the influences and arguments of society, of convention, of seeming necessity, and of her friends and family. Properly read, Austen should be a form of pornography for the morally and spiritually discriminating man. #Quote by Gerald Weaver
Pride quotes by Eric Hoffer
#136. The impression somehow prevails that the true believer, particularly the religious individual, is a humble person. The truth is the surrendering and humbling of the self breed pride and arrogance. The true believer is apt to see himself as one of the chosen, the salt of the earth, the light of the world, a prince disguised in meekness, who is destined to inherit the earth and the kingdom of heaven too. He who is not of his faith is evil; he who will not listen will perish. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Pride quotes by Keshia Knight Pulliam
#137. I think Mr. Cosby has always been very much an activist and a big proponent of African-American pride. That's how 'The Cosby Show' came about. I think in his older years, he has gotten a lot more direct and vocal about it. But I think he only wants the best for all of us. #Quote by Keshia Knight Pulliam
Pride quotes by Erwin Raphael McManus
#138. Attitude is an accurate monitor of where we fall on the spectrum of pride and humility. #Quote by Erwin Raphael McManus
Pride quotes by Maria V. Snyder
#139. He wanted to name the horse we're taking with us 'Beach Bunny,' after some stuffed rabbit he had growing up, and I said it was a stupid name for a horse. Then he claimed, if it was his horse, he could name it anything he wanted, and I said he should ride The Madam because she's the easiest to handle, and - "

"You offended his pride and he stalked away in a huff," Yelena finished.

"Yup. #Quote by Maria V. Snyder
Pride quotes by Aristotle.

Pride quotes by Adrienne Rich
#141. Things take us hard, no question.
How do you make it, all the way
from here to morning? I touch
you, made of such nerve
and flare and pride and swallowed tears.
Go home. Come to bed. The skies
look in at us, stern.
And this is an old story. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Pride quotes by Madeleine De Souvre, Marquise De ...
#142. Those who foolishly pride themselves on their nobility mistake that which makes them noble, for it is only the virtue of their ancestors that gives them noble blood. #Quote by Madeleine De Souvre, Marquise De ...
Pride quotes by Laurence Overmire
#143. No matter who our ancestors are, our own personal and monumental task is to become the best person that we can possibly be - someone in whom our own descendants in times to come can take great pride and find inspiration. #Quote by Laurence Overmire
Pride quotes by Nora Roberts
#144. When people break your heart, pride's all you've got left.

Pride quotes by Sophocles
#147. Reason is God's crowning gift to man, and you are right
To warn me against losing mine. I cannot say
I hope that I shall never want to say! - that you
Have reasoned badly. Yet there are other men
Who can reason, too; and their opinions might be helpful.
You are not in a position to know everything
That people say or do, or what they feel:
Your temper terrifies them - everyone
Will tell you only what you like to hear. #Quote by Sophocles
Pride quotes by Terry Pratchett
#148. The Death of the Disc was a traditionalist who prided himself on his personal service and spent most of the time being depressed because this was not appreciated. He would point out that no one feared death itself, just pain and separation and oblivion, and that it was quite unreasonable to take against someone just because he had empty eye sockets and a quiet pride in his work. He still used a scythe, he'd point out, while the Deaths of other worlds had long ago invested in combine harvesters. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Pride quotes by Charles Darwin
#149. Man may be excused for feeling some pride at having risen, though not through his own exertions, to the very summit of the organic scale; and the fact of his having thus risen, instead of having been aboriginally placed there, may give him hopes for a still higher destiny in the distant future. #Quote by Charles Darwin
Pride quotes by Rudyard Kipling
#150. As he stood in the red light of the oil-lamp, strong, tall, and beautiful, his long black hair sweeping over his shoulders, the knife swinging at his neck, and his head crowned with a wreath of white jasmine, he might easily have been mistaken for some wild god of a jungle legend. -"Son," she said at last, - her eyes were full of pride, - "have any told thee that thou art beautiful beyond all men?"
"Hah?" said Mowgli, for naturally he had never heard anything of the kind. #Quote by Rudyard Kipling

Pride quotes by Allen Iverson
#153. We got to stop people. We go ahead and we score 100 points every night, but we give up more. Our whole thing was, we know we can score, and we have to start having some kind of fun on the defensive end. Everybody want to play offense. Not too many people want to play defense. Defense is ego, pride, and that's the way we've been coming out, just taking the challenge. Man-on-man first, and having each other's back when a guy gets beat. #Quote by Allen Iverson
Pride quotes by Charley Pride
#154. I think there's enough room in country music for everybody. #Quote by Charley Pride
Pride quotes by Odd Borretzen
#155. B National Pride - Is located on top of the head, under the hair, and for this and other reasons may be difficult to detect.
C Mouth - Is used for the intake of food and drink, and, to some extent, for talking. (See: Norwegian Conversations (Do they occur?)).
G Craving for Freedom - Located in the heart.
H Right Hand - Open, ready to accept friendship and/or sales contracts. #Quote by Odd Borretzen
Pride quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#156. Just as in a clock, the result of the complicated motion of innumerable wheels and pulleys is merely a slow and regular movement of the hands which show the time, so the result of all the complicated human activities of 160,000 Russians and French - all their passions, desires, remorse, humiliations, sufferings, outbursts of pride, fear, and enthusiasm - was only the loss of the battle of Austerlitz, the so-called battle of the three Emperors - that is to say, a slow movement of the hand on the dial of human history. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Pride quotes by Letitia Elizabeth Landon
#157. I have a respect for family pride. If it be a prejudice, it is a prejudice in its most picturesque shape. But I hold it is connected with some of the noblest feelings in our nature. #Quote by Letitia Elizabeth Landon
Pride quotes by Walter Lang
#158. This solution may not appeal to our human pride, but the problem is that our human pride in itself is sinful. #Quote by Walter Lang
Pride quotes by Criss Jami

#160. Pride starts with the penis. #Quote by Rodney Ross
Pride quotes by Joseph De Maistre
#161. How strange is the blindness of men in our age. They boast of their knowledge, and are ignorant of everything, since they are ignorant of themselves. They know not what they are, nor what they can do. An invincible pride bears them on continually to overthrow every thing which they have not made; and in order to work out new creations, they separate themselves from the source of all existence. #Quote by Joseph De Maistre
Pride quotes by Terry Pratchett
#162. It was a stamp. It was a yellowy-green color. It showed - Moist peered - a field of cabbages, with some buildings on the horizon. He sniffed. It smelled of cabbages. Oh, yes. "Printed with cabbage ink and using gum made from broccoli, sir," said Stanley, full of pride. "'A Salute to the Cabbage Industry of the Sto Plains,' sir. I think it might do very well. Cabbages are so popular, sir. You can make so many things out of them!" "Well, I can see that - " "There's cabbage soup, cabbage beer, cabbage fudge, cabbage cake, cream of cabbage - " "Yes, Stanley, I think you - " " - pickled cabbage, cabbage jelly, cabbage salad, boiled cabbage, deep-fried cabbage - " "Yes, but now can - " " - fricassee of cabbage, cabbage chutney, cabbage Surprise, sausages - " "Sausages?" "Filled with cabbage, sir. You can make practically anything with cabbage, sir. Then there's - " "Cabbage stamps," said Moist terminally. #Quote by Terry Pratchett

Pride quotes by F. Sionil Jose
#164. I did not hesitate to tell them that I not only had the authority of facts, but that it was my conviction that our worst enemy was ourselves, our vanity, our pride and our desire for honor. #Quote by F. Sionil Jose
Pride quotes by Lord Chesterfield
#165. Wrongs are often forgiven, but contempt never is. Our pride remembers it forever. It implies a discovery of weakness, which we are more careful to conceal than a crime. Many a man will confess his crimes to a friend; but I never knew a man that would tell his silly weaknesses to his most intimate one. #Quote by Lord Chesterfield
Pride quotes by Wylie Dufresne
#166. Fish butchering means a lot to me as a chef; I take pride in it and get a lot of joy from filleting fish, working with fish, breaking down fish, trying to understand fish. #Quote by Wylie Dufresne
Pride quotes by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
#167. I prayed that the Lord would help me to see my life from his point of view. It was then that I noticed it: as I looked around my house, I had dozens of PRIDE posters, T-shirts, coffee mugs. The flag that waved in the breeze at my porch was a PRIDE flag. Pride had become my best friend. In the LGBT world, we defined pride as a healthy self-esteem. But something started to crack a little and I dared to just ask the question: was I domesticating a tiger? #Quote by Rosaria Champagne Butterfield
Pride quotes by Kathryn Smith
#168. My requirements in a husband are simple," she informed him smoothly. "All I want is a man who will hold me above everything else, including his horse, his fortune, and his pride."
Hearing that simple yet seemingly impossible declaration was like a blow to Grey's solar plexus. She was going to be so disappointed, the poor thing. How perverted was it of him to secretly rejoice over her wants? She might find a man who could love her more than his horse, perhaps even more than his fortune, but never would she find a man willing to sacrifice his pride-not without that same man coming to hate her for it eventually.
"More than his horse?" he joked. "My dear girl, you ask too much. #Quote by Kathryn Smith
Pride quotes by Edward Irving
#169. I perceive two things in Scotland of the most fearful omen: ignorance of theological truth, and a readiness to pride themselves in and boast of it. #Quote by Edward Irving
Pride quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#170. A Decalogue of Canons for Observation in Practical Life:
1. Never put off to tomorrow what you can do to-day.

Pride quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#171. O God of earth and altar,

The swords of scorn divide,
Take not thy thunder from us,
But take away our pride. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton

#176. The typical American of today has lost all the love of liberty, that his forefathers had, and all their disgust of emotion, and pride in self- reliance. He is led no longer by Davy Crocketts; he is led by cheer leaders, press agents, word mongers, uplifters. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Pride quotes by T. Coleman Andrews
#177. The income tax is bad because it was conceived in class hatred, is an instrument of vengeance and plays right into the hands of the communists. It employs the vicious communist principle of taking from each according to his accumulation of the fruits of his labor and giving to others according to their needs, regardless of whether those needs are the result of indolence, or lack of pride, self-respect, personal dignity or other attributes of men. #Quote by T. Coleman Andrews
Pride quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#178. in language man has placed a world of his own beside the other, a position which he deemed so fixed that he might therefrom lift the rest of the world off its hinges, and make himself master of it. Inasmuch as man has believed in the ideas and names of things as aeternae veritates for a great length of time, he has acquired that pride by which he has raised himself above the animal; he really thought that in language he possessed the knowledge of the world. The #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Pride quotes by Eugene H. Peterson
#179. And yet I decide, every day, to set aside what I can do best and attempt what I do very clumsily
open myself to the frustrations and failures of loving, daring to believe that failing in love is better than succeeding in pride. #Quote by Eugene H. Peterson
Pride quotes by Horace Mann
#180. Generosity during life is a very different thing from generosity in the hour of death; one proceeds from genuine liberality and benevolence, the other from pride or fear. #Quote by Horace Mann
Pride quotes by Jeff Zentner
#181. What you call pride, I call courage. #Quote by Jeff Zentner
Pride quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#182. I gesture with the jacket. "Do you want me to leave this somewhere?" I only ask it because it's polite. I don't want him to say yes. I don't know what exactly it is I want him to say, only for it to be something that gives me an excuse to stay here watching him for a few more minutes. Admitting this to myself is a sharp blow to my pride, as, with the exception of my six-year-old self's desire to marry Dr. Halsal, I'd always thought I was above being fascinated by anyone but myself.

On the other side of the stall door, Sean looks up and down the aisle, as if he's scouting for a place for me to hang the jacket, but then he frowns at me as if that wasn't what he was looking for at all. "I'm nearly done. Can you wait?"

I try not to stare at where his hand rests on the red stallion's neck. It's a warning, the way his fingers lean into his skin, telling Corr to keep his distance, but it's a comfort as well, the way that I would touch Dove to remind her just that I'm there. The difference, though, is that Corr killed a man yesterday morning.

I say, "I suppose I have one minute or two to put together."

Sean does the sweep of his eyes that he does, the one that goes from my head to my toes and back again and makes me feel that he's scanning the depths of my soul and teasing out my motivations and sins. It's worse than confession with Father Mooneyham. At the end of it, he says, "If you help, this will go faster."

There is a little #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater
Pride quotes by Diane Zahler
#183. Boys were so proud - you always had to let them think they were good at things. #Quote by Diane Zahler
Pride quotes by Susan Ee
#184. Dee checks to make sure his mic is turned off. 'It's not about common sense.' Dee surveys the crowd with some pride.

Dum also checks to make sure his mic is off. 'It's not about logic or practicality or anything that makes a remote amount of sense.' He sports a wide grin.

'That's the whole point of a talent show,' says Dee, doing a spin onstage. 'It's illogical, chaotic, stupid, and a whole hell of a lot of fun.' Dee nods to Dum. 'It's what sets us apart from monkeys. What other species puts on talent shows? #Quote by Susan Ee
Pride quotes by Bernard Cornwell
#185. I knew it was stupid, knew I would probably die if I went again, but we were warriors and warriors will not be beaten. It is reputation. It is pride. It is the madness of battle. I began beating Serpent-Breath against my half-broken shield, and other men took up the rhythm, and the Danes, so close, were inviting us to come and be killed, and I shouted that we were coming. #Quote by Bernard Cornwell
Pride quotes by Debra Anastasia
#186. She watched with a crashing surge of pride as he reached up and pulled the mask off - he was in full sunlight. The orangey red light of the setting sun outlined him. Poughkeepsie's dusk set the mood. No matter how much Blake healed, Livia had a feeling nighttime would always be their favorite. He disappeared from view, but she knew he was strong. So much stronger so much sooner than she could ever have hoped. #Quote by Debra Anastasia
Pride quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#187. Then what do you want?" she asked softly.
He shook his head without answering. But Sara knew. He wanted to be safe. If he were rich and powerful enough, he would never be hurt, lonely, or abandoned. He would never have to trust anyone. She continued to stroke his hair, playing lightly with the thick raven locks. 'Take a chance on me," she urged. "Do you really have so much to lose?"

He gave a harsh laugh and loosened his arms to release her. "More than you know."

Clinging to him desperately, Sara kept her mouth at his ear. "Listen to me." All she could do was play her last card. Her voice trembled with emotion. "You can't change the truth. You can act as though you're deaf and blind, you can walk away from me forever, but the truth will still be there, and you can't make it go away. I love you." She felt an involuntary tremor run through him. "I love you," she repeated. "Don't lie to either of us by pretending you're leaving for my good. All you'll do is deny us both a chance at happiness. I'll long for you every day and night, but at least my conscience will be clear. I haven't held anything back from you, out of fear or pride or stubbornness." She felt the incredible tautness of his muscles, as if he were carved from marble. "For once have the strength not to walk away," she whispered. "Stay with me. Let me love you, Derek."

He stood there frozen in defeat, with all the warmth and promise of her in his arms ... and he couldn't allow him #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Pride quotes by Laura M. Hughes
#188. You say glory, necessity, pride; I say barbarity, greed, arrogance. War is a search for glory, for that particular sense of joy and satisfaction that comes from staking one's life on the outcome of a gamble. The search for a cheap thrill, with a cost too dear for Midas, and on a pretext that, more or less, amounts to 'My neighbour has a thing. I want it. #Quote by Laura M. Hughes
Pride quotes by Jane Austen
#189. Of this she was perfectly unaware; to her he was only the man who had made himself agreeable nowhere, and who had not thought her handsome enough to dance with. #Quote by Jane Austen
Pride quotes by William, Saroyan
#190. There is little pride in writers. They know they are human and shall some day die and be forgotten. Knowing all this a writer is gentle and kindly where another man is severe and unkind. #Quote by William, Saroyan
Pride quotes by Joseph Conrad
#191. 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. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Pride quotes by Giorgos Seferis
#192. Every man of action has a strong dose of egoism, pride, hardness, and cunning. But all those things will be regarded as high qualities if he can make them the means to achieve great ends. #Quote by Giorgos Seferis
Pride quotes by Charles Horton Cooley
#193. If the man succeeds in becoming indifferent to the opinions of his neighbors he runs into another danger, that of a distorted and extravagant self of the pride sort, since by the very process of gaining independence and immunity from the stings of depreciation and misunderstanding, he has perhaps lost that wholesome deference to some social tribunal that a man cannot dispense with and remain quite sane. #Quote by Charles Horton Cooley
Pride quotes by Salman Rushdie
#194. As I look back, I feel a touch of pride at my younger self's dedication to literature, which gave him the strength of mind to resist the blandishments of the enemies of promise. The sirens of ad-land sang sweetly and seductively, but I thought of Odysseus lashing himself to the mast of his ship, and somehow stayed on course. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Pride quotes by D.L. Moody
#195. I believe firmly, that the moment our hearts are emptied of pride and selfishness and ambition and self-seeking, and everything that is contrary to God's law, the Holy Ghost will come and fill every corner of our hearts; but if we are full of pride and conceit, and ambition and self-seeking, and pleasure and the world, there is no room for the Spirit of God; and I believe many a man is praying to God to fill him when he is full already with something else. Before we pray that God would fill us, I believe we ought to pray Him to empty us. There must be an emptying before there can be a filling; and when the heart is turned upside #Quote by D.L. Moody
Pride quotes by Mark Driscoll
#196. In treadmill religion, we have to work hard and perform at a high level for God to take notice of us.
The problem with treadmill performance religion is that it leads to either pride or despair. If you keep the rules of your religious team, you become arrogant. Conversely if you fail to keep the rules of your religious team, you despair. Justifying grace gives us full assurance that God will love us no more if we perform well and love us no less if we perform poorly. By justifying grace, our acceptance before God and the grounds for our righteousness are solely Jesus' works of sinless living, substitutionary death, and bodily resurrection and therefore are not in any way contingent upon what we do or do not do. #Quote by Mark Driscoll
Pride quotes by Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
#197. On the first of May, with my comrades of the catechism class, I laid lilac, chamomile and rose before the altar of the Virgin, and returned full of pride to show my blessed posy. My mother laughed her irreverent laugh and, looking at my bunch of flowers, which was bringing the may-bug into the sitting-room right under the lamp, she said: Do you suppose it wasn't already blessed before? #Quote by Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Pride quotes by Jacquelyn Frank
#198. Gideon rose up to his full height, watching their progress as they faded into the night. He then turned his diamondlike eyes until they narrowed on the female Demon who had remained so still and quiet that she had gone unremembered. An interesting feat, considering the remarkable presence of the beauty.
"You have grown strong, Legna," he remarked quietly.
"In only a decade? I am sure it has not made much of a difference."
"To teleport me from such a great distance took respectful skill and strength. You well know it."
"Thank you. I shall have to remember to feel weak and fluttery inside now that you complimented me."
Gideon narrowed his eyes coldly on her. "You sound like that acerbic little human. It does not become you."
"I sound like myself," Legna countered, her irritation crackling through his thoughts as the emotion overflowed her control. "Or have you forgotten that I am far too immature for your tastes?"
"I never said such a thing."
"You did. You said I was too young to even begin to understand you." She lifted her chin, so lost in her wounded pride that she spoke before she thought. "At least I was never so immature that Jacob had to punish me for stalking a human."
Gideon's spine went extremely straight, his eyes glittering with warning as she hit home on the still-raw wound. "Maturity had nothing to do with that, and you well know it. It is below you to be so petty, Magdelegna."

Pride quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#199. He's not wanting to fight," she assured the captain.
"He is driven by curiosity?" Deudermont asked.
"By loyalty," Catti-brie answered. "And nothing more. Drizzt is bound by friendship to ye and to the crew, and if a simple contest against the man will make for an easier sail, then he's up to the fight. But there is no curiosity in Drizzt. No stupid pride. He's not for caring who's the better at swordplay."
Deudermont nodded and his expression brightened. The young woman's words confirmed his belief in his friend. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Pride quotes by Jim O'Connor
#200. Gettysburg is still considered the most famous battle of the war. Why? At Gettysburg, the tide turned. Up until then, the South had been winning. After Gettysburg, the Confederates were no longer sure their army was unbeatable. And after two years of losing battles, the Northern forces gained pride and confidence. They believed the war was theirs to win. And they were right. Gettysburg was a prosperous market town of 2,400 people. A network of ten roads extended out from town like the spokes of a wheel. Until July 1863, Gettysburg was not well known like other cities in Pennsylvania such as Philadelphia or Harrisburg. #Quote by Jim O'Connor
