In reality, there is, perhaps, no one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride.

“In reality, there is, perhaps, no one of our natural passions so hard to subdue as pride. Disguise it, struggle with it, beat it down, stifle it, mortify it as much as one pleases, it is still alive, and will every now and then peep out and show itself… for, even if I could conceive that I had comple…tely overcome it, I should probably be proud of my humility.” – Benjamin Franklin
