There are so many things to lower a man's top-sails--he is such a dependent creature--he is to pay such court to his stomach, his food, his sleep, his exercise--that, in truth, a hero is an idle word. Man seems formed to be a hero in suffering, not a hero in action. Men err in nothing more than in the estimate which they make of human labor.
      - Richard Cecil

As for environments, the kingliest being ever born in the flesh lay in a manger.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Let pride go afore, shame will follow after.
      - George Chapman, Eastward Ho!

It is hardly possible to overvalue ourselves but by undervaluing our neighbors.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

Men very rarely put off the trappings of pride till they who are about them put on their winding-sheet.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

The disesteem and contempt of others is inseparable from pride. It is hardly possible to overvalue ourselves but by undervaluing our neighbors.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

The seat of pride is in the heart, and only there; and if it be not there, it is neither in the look nor in the clothes.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

Without the sovereign influence of God's extraordinary and immediate grace, men do very rarely put off all the trappings of their pride, till they who are about them put on their winding-sheet.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

Though pride is not a virtue, it is the parent of many virtues.
      - John Churton Collins

It is with nations as with individuals, those who know the least of others think the highest of themselves; for the whole family of pride and ignorance are incestuous, and mutually beget each other.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Of all the marvelous works of the Deity, perhaps there is nothing that angels behold with such supreme astonishment as a proud man.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Pride differs in many things from vanity, and by gradations that never blend, although they may be somewhat indistinguishable. Pride may perhaps be termed a too high opinion of ourselves founded on the overrating of certain qualities that we do actually possess; whereas vanity is more easily satisfied, and can extract a feeling of self-complacency from qualifications that are imaginary.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Pride requires very costly food--its keeper's happiness.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Pride, like the magnet, constantly points to one object, self; but, unlike the magnet, it has no attractive pole, but at all points repels.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

The most ridiculous of all animals is a proud priest; he cannot use his own tools without cutting his own fingers.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

There is this paradox in pride--it makes some men ridiculous, but prevents others from becoming so.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

The proud are ever most provoked by pride.
      - William Cowper

How poor a thing is pride! when all, as slaves,
  Differ but in their fetters, not their graves.
      - Alfred Daniels

Pride, the first peer and president of hell.
      - Daniel Defoe

Dignity and pride are of too near relationship for intermarriage.
      - Dorothee DeLuzy

Pride, of all others the most dangerous fault,
  Proceeds from want of sense, or want of thought.
      - Wentworth Dillon, 4th Earl of Roscommon

Pride (of all others the most dang'rous fault)
  Proceeds from want of sense, or want of thought.
      - Wentworth Dillon, 4th Earl of Roscommon,
        Essay on Translated Verse (l. 161)

As soon as there was two there was pride.
      - Dr. John Donne

Lord of human kind.
      - John Dryden, Spanish Friar (act II, sc. 1)

The pride of the heart is the attribute of honest men; pride of manners is that of fools; the pride of birth and rank is often the pride of dupes.
      - Charles Pineau Duclos
