Pride Comes Before the Fall

There is one vice of which no man in this world is free, which everyone in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else, and which hardly any people except Christians ever imagine they are guilty of themslves. The only people who do not see it that way are Christians. There is no fault that makes a man more unpopular, no fault which we are more conscious of in ourselves. And the more we have it in ourselves, the more we dislike it in others. According to the Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is pride. Unfaithfulness, anger, greed, drunkenness, and all that are mere flea bites in comparison. It was through pride that the devil became the devil. Pride leads to every other vice. It is a completely anti-God state of mind.
