arrogance

Christianity has operated with an unmitigated arrogance and cruelty -- necessarily, since a religion ordinarily imposes on those who have discovered the true faith the spiritual duty of liberating the infidels.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For all his learning or sophistication, man still instinctively reaches towards that force beyond. Only arrogance can deny its existence, and the denial falters in the face of evidence on every hand. In every tuft of grass, in every bird, in every opening bud, there it is.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sometimes a neighbor whom we have disliked a lifetime for his arrogance and conceit lets fall a single commonplace remark that shows us another side, another man, really; a man uncertain, and puzzled, and in the dark like ourselves.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is nothing less to our credit than our neglect of the foreigner and his children, unless it be the arrogance most of us betray when we set out to Americanize him.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Arrogance on the part of the meritorious is even more offensive to us than the arrogance of those without merit: for merit itself is offensive.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We wanted to do a film called The Hellfire Club, and we set it up to try to achieve that, really. With all our arrogance and bravado we wanted to make films our way - we were lucky to be making them at all really. But we wanted to do them our way - we want character driven work, not plot-driven.More [05/09/2006 12:05:00]
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]
Mary Bennet: The glories of nature. What are men compared to rocks and mountains?
Elizabeth Bennet: Believe me. Men are either eaten up with arrogance or stupidity. If they are amiable, they are so easily led they have no minds of their own whatsoever.
Mrs. Gardiner: Take care, my love. That savors strongly of bitterness.More [04/25/2007 12:04:00]
Tim the Gate Guard: [Rodney and Fender are flambouyantly dressed and trying to get into the Bigweld Ball by getting past Tim the Gate Guard] Uh, can I help you?
Fender: I think-a maybe you can. This is the Count Roderick von Broken Zipper. Formerly, Count Velkro! Where are the trumpets? We were promised trumpets to announce the Count's arrival. Beat me until you are happy.
[Rodney slaps him]
Fender: He's happy. And I'm not feeling to bad myself.
Tim the Gate Guard: Uh, you're not on the list.
Fender: What? Once again.
[Rodney slaps him again]
Fender: Fine! We will go! You will explain to your superiors why were not able to attend your little luau! But we are leaving in a huff!
Tim the Gate Guard: No, no! Go right in! In fact, would the Count like to hit me?
Fender: The Count hit you? The arrogance of some people. I shall hit you on his behalf.
[Hits Tim, knocking him to the ground]
Tim the Gate Guard: Thank you, your grace!More [05/24/2007 12:05:00]
All too often arrogance accompanies strength, and we must never assume that justice is on the side of the strong. The use of power must always be accompanied by moral choice.More [05/20/2008 12:05:00]
Jesus: You're here to trick me.
The Cobra, voice by Satan: Trick you? To love and care for a woman, to have a family? This is a trick? Why are you trying to save the world? Aren't your own sins enough for you? What arrogance to think you can save the world. The world doesn't have to be saved: save yourself. Find love
Jesus: I have love.More [07/09/2008 12:07:00]
Macaulay Connor:
You've got all the arrogance of your class, haven't you?



Tracy Lord:
What have classes to do with it? What do they matter except for the people in them? George comes from the so-called lower class, Dexter, the upper. Well?



Macaulay Connor:
Well...



Tracy Lord:
Mac the night watchman is a prince among men, Uncle Willie is a... pincher. Upper and lower my eye. I'll take the lower, thanks.



Macaulay Connor:
If you can't get a drawing room.



Tracy Lord:
What does that mean?



Macaulay Connor:
My mistake.



Tracy Lord:
Decidedly. You're insulting!



Macaulay Connor:
Sorry.



Tracy Lord:
Oh, don't apologize!



Macaulay Connor:
Well, who's apologizing?



Tracy Lord:
I never knew such a man.



Macaulay Connor:
You wouldn't be likely to, from where you sit!



Tracy Lord:
Talk about arrogance.



Macaulay Connor:
Tracy.



Tracy Lord:
What do you want?



Macaulay Connor:
[pause] You're wonderful.

Lord Birkenhead:
Liddell, he is your future king, are you refusing to shake his hand? Does your arrogance extend that far?



Eric Liddell:
My arrogance, sir, extends just as far as my conscience demands.



Lord Birkenhead:
Fine, then let's hope that is wise enough to give you room to maneuver.

Yoda:
I hear a new apprentice you have, Emperor... or should I say "Darth Sidious"?



Darth Sidious:
Master Yoda... you survived.

Surprised?

Kain:
Thirty years hence, I am presented with a dilemma... let's call it a two-sided coin. If the coin falls one way, I sacrifice myself and thus restore the Pillars... but as the last surviving vampire in Nosgoth, this would mean the annihilation of our species... Moebius made sure of that. If the coin lands on the reverse, I refuse the sacrifice and thus doom the Pillars to an eternity of collapse. Either way, the game is rigged.



Raziel:
We agree then that the Pillars are crucial and must be restored.



Kain:
Yes, Raziel, that is why we've come full-circle to this place.



Raziel:
So after all this, you make my case for me. To end this stalemate, you must die so that new Guardians can be born.



Kain:
The Pillars don't belong to them, Raziel... they belong to us.



Raziel:
Your arrogance is boundless, Kain.



Kain:
There's a third option, a monumental secret hidden in your very presence here. But it's a secret you have to discover for yourself. Unearth your destiny, Raziel. It's all laid out for you here.



Raziel:
You said it yourself, Kain... there are only two sides to your coin.



Kain:
Apparently so, but suppose you throw a coin enough times... suppose one day, it lands on its edge.

Elder God:
Your arrogance will spell your demise, Raziel. Deny my will, and the arc of your destiny will reach a sudden conclusion.



Raziel:
Your threats are unmoving. Even now I'm beyond your reach.



Elder God:
My reach is longer than you realize.

Sister Miriam Godwinson:
Men in their arrogance claim to understand the nature of creation, and devise elaborate theories to describe its behavior. But always they discover in the end that God was quite a bit more clever than they thought.

Merideth Van Aitken:
[on the phone with Cold after a hitman tried to jump him] Mr. Cold, I can assure you that the least I am is naive.



Jonathon Cold:
Naivity is not what I accuse you of, Miss Van Aitken. However, arrogance does come to mind. So I'll leave you with this in mind: trying to kill me was your first and last mistake.

What annoys the hell out of me is the arrogance of some people.More [11/14/2011 10:11:35]
The human understanding is no dry light, but receives infusion from the will and affections; which proceed sciences which may be called "sciences as one would." For what a man had rather were true he more readily believes. Therefore he rejects difficult things from impatience of research; sober things, because they narrow hope; the deeper things of nature, from superstition; the light of experience, from arrogance and pride; things not commonly believed, out of deference to the opinion of the vulgar. Numberless in short are the ways, and sometimes imperceptible, in which the affections color and infect the understanding.More [12/12/2011 02:12:21]

[From our side] our relation to God is unrighteous. Secretly we are ourselves the masters in this relationship. We are not concerned with God, but with our own requirements, to which God must adjust Himself.
