A Quote by Alexander Pope on angels, errors, lies, men, and pride

In pride, in reasoning pride, our error lies; All quit their sphere, and rush into the skies. Pride still is aiming at the blest abodes: Men would be angels, angels would be gods. Aspiring to be gods, if angels fell, Aspiring to be angels, men rebel.

Alexander Pope (1688 - 1744)
