pride

When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudice, and motivated by pride and vanity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Writers must fortify themselves with pride and egotism as best they can. The process is analogous to using sandbags and loose timbers to protect a house against flood. Writers are vulnerable creatures like anyone else. For what do they have in reality? Not sandbags, not timbers. Just a flimsy reputation and a name.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A family on the throne is an interesting idea. It brings down the pride of sovereignty to the level of petty life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not enough for theory to describe and analyze, it must itself be an event in the universe it describes. In order to do this theory must partake of and become the acceleration of this logic. It must tear itself from all referents and take pride only in the future. Theory must operate on time at the cost of a deliberate distortion of present reality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Many people believe that humility is the opposite of pride, when, in fact, it is a point of equilibrium. The opposite of pride is actually a lack of self esteem. A humble person is totally different from a person who cannot recognize and appreciate himself as part of this worlds marvelsMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Losers have tons of variety. Champions just take pride in learning to hit the same old boring winning shots.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Earnestness is not by any means everything; it is very often a subtle form of pious pride because it is obsessed with the method and not with the Master.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The source of our actions resides in an unconscious propensity to regard ourselves as the center, the cause, and the conclusion of time. Our reflexes and our pride transform into a planet the parcel of flesh and consciousness we are.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
And the Devil did grin, for his darling sin is pride that apes humility.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is this paradox in pride -- it makes some men ridiculous, but prevents others from becoming so.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The pride of dying rich raises the loudest laugh in hell.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are taxed twice as much by our idleness, three times as much by our pride and four times as much by our foolishness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Death cancels everything but truth; and strips a man of everything but genius and virtue. It is a sort of natural canonization. It makes the meanest of us sacred --it installs the poet in his immortality, and lifts him to the skies. Death is the greatest assayer of the sterling ore of talent. At his touch the dropsy particles fall off, the irritable, the personal, the gross, and mingle with the dust --the finer and more ethereal part mounts with winged spirit to watch over our latest memory, and protect our bones from insult. We consign the least worthy qualities to oblivion, and cherish the nobler and imperishable nature with double pride and fondness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fame is the inheritance not of the dead, but of the living. It is we who look back with lofty pride to the great names of antiquity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing so obstinately stands in the way of all sorts of progress as pride of opinion. While nothing is so foolish and baseless.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The charity that hastens to proclaim its good deeds, ceases to be charity, and is only pride and ostentation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All money means to me is a pride in accomplishment.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By profession I am a soldier and take pride in that fact. But I am prouder -- infinitely prouder -- to be a father. A soldier destroys in order to build; the father only builds, never destroys. The one has the potentiality of death; the other embodies creation and life. And while the hordes of death are mighty, the battalions of life are mightier still. It is my hope that my son, when I am gone, will remember me not from the battle field but in the home repeating with him our simple daily prayer, Our Father Who Art in Heaven.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let your actions always speak for you, but be forever on guard against the terrible traps of false pride and conceit that can halt your progress. The next time you are tempted to boast, just place your fist in a full pail of water, and when you remove it, the hole remaining will give you a correct measure of your importance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Although most of us know Vincent van Gogh in Arles and Paul Gauguin in Tahiti as if they were neighbors -- somewhat disreputable but endlessly fascinating -- none of us can name two French generals or department store owners of that period. I take enormous pride in considering myself an artist, one of the necessaries.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The want of education and moral training is the only real barrier that exists between the different classes of men. Nature, reason, and Christianity recognize no other. Pride may say Nay; but Pride was always a liar, and a great hater of the truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no cure for the pride of a virtuous nation but pure religion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Reckoned physiologically, everything ugly weakens and afflicts man. It recalls decay, danger, impotence; he actually suffers a loss of energy in its presence. The effect of the ugly can be measured with a dynamometer. Whenever man feels in any way depressed, he senses the proximity of something ugly. His feeling of power, his will to power, his courage, his pride -- they decline with the ugly, they increase with the beautiful.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Misquotation is, in fact, the pride and privilege of the learned. A widely-read man never quotes accurately, for the rather obvious reason that he has read too widely.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
At every trifle take offense, that always shows great pride or little sense.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
So in your discussions of the nuclear freeze proposals, I urge you to beware the temptation of pride -- the temptation blithely to declare yourselves above it all and label both sides equally at fault, to ignore the facts of history and the aggressive impulses of an evil empire, to simply call the arms race a giant misunderstanding and thereby remove yourself from the struggle between right and wrong, good and evil.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In general, pride is at the bottom of all great mistakes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
That which is given with pride and ostentation is rather an ambition than a bounty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Poor nations are hungry, and rich nations are proud; and pride and hunger will ever be at variance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Swallowing your pride seldom leads to indigestionMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Temper gets you into trouble. Pride keeps you there.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Butch: [beating up Marsellus] You feel that sting, big boy, huh? That's pride FUCKIN' with you! You gotta fight through that shit!More [07/14/2005 12:07:00]
Marsellus: The night of the fight, you may feel a slight sting. That's pride fucking with you. Fuck pride. Pride only hurts, it never helps.More [07/14/2005 12:07:00]
Professor Snape: That is the second time you have spoken out of turn, Miss Granger. Are you incapable of restraining yourself, or do you take pride in being an insufferable know-it-all?
Ron: He's got a point, you know.
Harry: Thanks, Ron.More [07/27/2005 12:07:00]
Mae Braddock: Maybe I understand, some, about having to fight. So you just remember who you are... you're the Bulldog of Bergen, and the Pride of New Jersey, you're everybody's hope, and the kid's hero, and you are the champion of my heart, James J. Braddock.More [09/25/2005 12:09:00]

You kind of think, "Oh, well, I will just do kind of an American accent." But you have to try and be more specific than that, because there are differences which a lot of people might not notice but you, as a pro, your pride gets affected.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
Now, I had feelings of unworthiness before I walked onto the set, and I have feelings of pride and wonder and astonishment and disbelief when I see what we managed to achieve on the screen.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
So it's a source of fun and a source of pride to have been a part of this little movie that could.More [04/11/2006 12:04:00]
I do pride myself-I think it's important in a creative environment-on being generous.More [04/21/2006 12:04:00]

I talked to a porn actress in preparation for the film and the amazing thing I got from her was her sense of happiness and pride in what she does.More [09/26/2006 12:09:00]
I think that my exchange with Nightcrawler out in the campground was sort of the backbone of what the theme behind the X-Men is. That's what the message is all about, about tolerance and taking in pride in differences and not trying to blend in.More [10/04/2006 12:10:00]
“Hope remains when pride is gone,
And it keeps you moving on. . . .”More [11/13/2006 12:11:00]
I've proved before when Freeman has had a lot of personal turmoil, she's managed to keep it together on the track. I pride myself on that.More [11/14/2006 12:11:00]
I think that's one of the things we pride ourselves on the show is we've gone in different directions and we've done different episodes.More [11/19/2006 12:11:00]

Jack Sparrow: [upon seeing Elizabeth plunge into the ocean] Will you be saving her then?
Mullroy: I can't swim.
[Jack looks at Murtogg... no he won't do either]
Jack Sparrow: Pride of the King's navy you are. Do not lose these.More [02/19/2007 12:02:00]
Elrond: His strength returns.
Gandalf: That wound will never fully heal. He will carry it the rest of his life.
Elrond: And yet, to have come so far, still bearing the Ring, the hobbit has shown extraordinary resilience to its evil.
Gandalf: It is a burden he should never have had to bear. We can ask no more of Frodo.
Elrond: Gandalf, the enemy is moving. Sauron's forces are massing in the east, his eye is fixed on Rivendell. And Saruman, you tell me, has betrayed us. Our list of allies grows thin.
Gandalf: His treachery runs deeper than you know. By foul craft, Saruman has crossed Orcs with goblin men. He's breeding an army in the caverns of Isengard. An army that can move in sunlight and cover great distance at speed. Saruman is coming for the Ring.
Elrond: This evil cannot be concealed by the power of the Elves. We do not have the strength to withstand both Mordor and Isengard. Gandalf, the Ring cannot stay here. This evil belongs to all of Middle-Earth. They must decide now how to end it. The time of the Elves is over, my people are leaving these shores. Who will you look to when we've gone? The Dwarves? They toil away in caverns, seeking riches. They care nothing for the troubles of others.
Gandalf: It is in Men that we must place our hope.
Elrond: Men? Men are weak. The Blood of Numenor is all but spent, its pride and dignity forgotten. It is because of Men the Ring survives. I was there, Gandalf. I was there three thousand years ago. I was there the day the strength of Men failed.
Elrond: [scene switches to a flashback of Elrond and Isildur] Isildur, hurry, follow me.
Elrond: [voiceover] I led Isildur deep into the fires of Mount Doom, where the Ring was forged, the one place it could be destroyed.
Elrond: Cast it into the fire! Destroy it!
Isildur: No.
[walks away]
Elrond: Isildur!
[cuts back to present]
Elrond: Isildur kept the Ring. It should have ended that day, but evil was allowed to endure. There's no strength left in the world of Men. They're scattered, divided, leaderless.
Gandalf: There is one who could unite them. One who could reclaim the throne of Gondor.
Elrond: He turned from that path a long time ago. He has chosen exile.More [03/21/2007 12:03:00]
Frank Costello: Good day, father.
Older Priest: Good day, Francis.
Frank Costello: You recall our chat? Little boys. Sucking on their peckers, etc... and so forth. I am as God made me. Is that your rationale? May I remind you - in this archdiocese, God don't run the bingo.
Young Priest: May I remind you - that pride comes before the fall.
Frank Costello: How's Sister Mary Teresa doing? Had a tasty relationship before she took her vows.
[Costello hands the priests a nude drawing of the nun]
Frank Costello: Enjoy your clams, cocksuckers.More [03/22/2007 12:03:00]
Gen. George C. Marshall: I have here a very old letter, written to a Mrs. Bixby in Boston. "Dear Madam: I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant-General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom. Yours very sincerely and respectfully, Abraham Lincoln."More [04/07/2007 12:04:00]
Gen. George C. Marshall: My dear Mrs Ryan: It's with the most profound sense of joy that I write to inform you your son, Private James Ryan, is well and, at this very moment, on his way home from European battlefields. Reports from the front indicate James did his duty in combat with great courage and steadfast dedication, even after he was informed of the tragic loss your family has suffered in this great campaign to rid the world of tyranny and oppresion. I take great pleasure in joining the Secretary of War, the men and women of the U.S. Army, and the citizens of a grateful nation in wishing you good health and many years of happiness with James at your side. Nothing, not even the safe return of a beloved son, can compensate you, or the thousands of other American families, who have suffered great loss in this tragic war. I might share with you some words which have sustained me through long, dark nights of peril, loss, and heartache. And I quote: "I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the somlemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the alter of freedom." -Abraham Lincoln. Yours very sincerely and respectfully, George C. Marshall, General, Chief of Staff.More [04/07/2007 12:04:00]
Fouchet: I like it when a woman takes pride in her appearance. Don't you?
Casper: Yeah, I hate it when a bitch lets herself slide.More [04/09/2007 12:04:00]
[Sebastian has just caught Greg in bed with Blaine]
Greg McConnell: This could ruin my career.
Sebastian: Well, not just your career, Greg. Think about your family. Can you imagine the pain and humiliation your father is going to feel when he finds out that his only son, his pride and joy, is a fudgepacker?
Greg McConnell: Valmont, please! Don't tell anyone. Let's just forget about this.
Sebastian: No. Sorry, can't help you there. After all, it is you who's been bad-mouthing me to Annette Hargrove.
Greg McConnell: Annette Hargrove? I don't know what you're talking about.
Sebastian: You wrote a letter a few months ago to Annette Hargrove back in Kansas telling her all about me. You're the only one who knows her. The truth will save you.
Greg McConnell: I never said a word to her about you. I promise!
Sebastian: Yeah, right.
Blaine: Come to think of it, Valmont, he is probably telling you the truth. As I remember, this guy can barely write out a grocery list, let alone a letter. What was I thinking?More [04/18/2007 12:04:00]
Mr. Darcy: So this is your opinion of me. Thank you for explaining so fully. Perhaps these offences might have be overlooked had not your pride been hurt by my honesty...
Elizabeth Bennet: My pride?
Mr. Darcy: ...in admitting scruples about our relationship. Could you expect me to rejoice in the inferiority of your circumstances?
Elizabeth Bennet: And those are the words of a gentleman. From the first moment I met you, your arrogance and conceit, your selfish disdain for the feelings of others made me realize that you were the last man in the world I could ever be prevailed upon to marry.
[they look at each other for a long time as though about to kiss]
Mr. Darcy: Forgive me, madam, for taking up so much of your time.More [04/25/2007 12:04:00]
Elizabeth Bennet: Are you too proud, Mr. Darcy? And would you consider pride a fault or a virtue?
Mr. Darcy: That I couldn't say.
Elizabeth Bennet: Because we're doing our best to find a fault in you.
Mr. Darcy: Maybe it's that I find it hard to forgive the follies and vices of others, or their offenses against me. My good opinion, once lost, is lost forever.
Elizabeth Bennet: Oh, dear, I cannot tease you about that. What a shame, for I dearly love to laugh.
Caroline Bingley: A family trait, I think.More [04/25/2007 12:04:00]
Hyrax: Aaahh! Doesn't anyone ever knock anymore?
Samson: Hey, where's my son? Did he come through here?
Hyrax: Yeah, now that I think about it, he did come through here.
[turns to toilet]
Hyrax: Hello? Come out of there, baby lion, your dad's here! well, what do you know, it's a whole pride of lions down here!More [05/02/2007 12:05:00]
