pride

A Quote by Zimmermann on ambition, egotism, good, imagination, indolence, luxury, nature, pride, principles, and rest

If you ask me which is the real hereditary sin of human nature, do you imagine I shall answer pride, or luxury, or ambition, or egotism? No; I shall say indolence. Who conquers indolence will conquer all the rest. Indeed all good principles must stagnate without mental activity.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on pride

in

"Not in vain" may be the pride of those who survived and the epitaph of those who fell. The eight thousand paratroopers of the First British Airborne Division who landed in Arnhem, Holland, behind the German lines and held the area for nine days and nights, with a loss of six thousand. [September 1944] Major General R. E. Urquhart, the division commander radioed to Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery: All will be ordered to break out rather than surrender.

A Quote by William Wordsworth on glory, joy, madness, mountains, poets, pride, soul, thought, and youth

I thought of Chatterton, the marvellous boy, The sleepless soul that perished in his pride; Of him who walked in glory and in joy, Following his plough, along the mountain-side. By our own spirits we are deified; We Poets in our youth begin in gladness, But thereof come in the end despondency and madness.

A Quote by William Shakespeare on age, beauty, death, deception, fear, friendship, perception, pride, and seasons

To me, fair friend, you never can be old, For as you were when first your eye I eyed, Such seems your beauty still. Three winters cold Have from the forests shook three summers' pride, Three beauteous springs to yellow autumn turn'd In process of the seasons have I seen, Three April perfumes in three hot Junes burn'd, Since first I saw you fresh, which yet are green. Ah! yet doth beauty, like a dial-hand, Steal from his figure and no pace perceived; So your sweet hue, which methinks still doth stand, Hath motion and mine eye may be deceived: For fear of which, hear this, thou age unbred; Ere you were born was beauty's summer dead.
