Finally, we came to the end of another fruitful week discussing about pride and arrogance. Though the size of readers is less this week but we did have some good write-ups posted throughout.
All the previous articles can be found HERE together starting from the Mega Article to Final Words.
Tonight, I am bit arrogant to write anything on arrogance… Lol 😉
But actually I don’t want to talk about it when the great people and the people around the world have spoken so much about arrogance. I have mentioned them as follows:
“You never really learn much from hearing yourself speak.” ― George Clooney
“Arrogance is a creature. It does not have senses.
It has only a sharp tongue and the pointing finger.” ― Toba Beta
“There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. ‘Good pride’ represents our dignity and self-respect. ‘Bad pride’ is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance.” ― John C. Maxwell
“Arrogance, ignorance, and incompetence. Not a pretty cocktail of personality traits in the best of situations. No sirree. Not a pretty cocktail in an office-mate and not a pretty cocktail in a head of state. In fact, in a leader, it’s a lethal cocktail.” ― Graydon Carter
The last quote by George Eliot was my favourite from the lot above. What arrogance can do to the people, we really can’t imagine. Is there any comparison between a cock and the sun? Yet, arrogance made the cock to think that the sun rises to hear it crow. Funny, isn’t it?
Friends, keep reading, keep pondering on these articles, snippets and quotes…
