pride

A Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge on coaching, devil, humility, and pride

He saw a cottage with a double coach-house, A cottage of gentility; And the Devil did grin, for his darling sin Is pride that apes humility.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772 - 1834)

A Quote by Dr. Samuel Johnson on celebrity, enemies, happiness, power, pride, quiet, and satisfaction

When once a man has made celebrity necessary to his happiness, he has put it in the power of the weakest and most timorous malignity, if not to take away his satisfaction, at least to withhold it. His enemies may indulge their pride by airy negligence and gratify their malice by quiet neutrality.

A Quote by Samuel Francis Smith on authors, country, fatherhood, freedom, god, heart, liberty, love, mortality, music, nobility, pride, silence, and songs

My country, 'tis of thee, Sweet land of liberty, Of thee I sing: Land where my fathers died, Land of the pilgrims' pride, From every mountainside Let freedom ring. My native country, thee, Land of the noble free, Thy name I love; I love thy rocks and rills, Thy woods and templed hills. My heart with rapture thrills Like that above. Let music swell the breeze And ring from all the trees Sweet freedom's song; Let mortal tongues awake; Let all that breathe partake; Let rocks their silence break, The sound prolong. Our fathers' God, to thee, Author of liberty, To thee I sing; Long may our land be bright With freedom's holy light; Protect us by thy might, Great God, our King!

A Quote by Saint Augustine of Hippo on art, boldness, earth, possessions, and pride

An apt and true reply was given to Alexander the Great by a pirate who had been seized. For when that king had asked the man what he meant by keeping hostile possession of the sea, he answered with bold pride. "What thou meanest by seizing the whole earth; but because I do it with a petty ship, I am called a robber, whilst thou who dost it with a great fleet art styled emperor."

A Quote by Saint Anselm of Canterbury on anguish, beauty, children, compassion, death, despair, fear, forgiveness, goodness, grace, hatred, heaven, hope, jesus, joy, life, love, mercy, motherhood, people, preparation, pride, purity, songs, sorrow, and te

A Song of Anselm Jesus, as a mother you gather your people to you: you are gentle with us as a mother with her children; Often you weep over our sins and our pride: tenderly you draw us from hatred and judgement. You comfort us in sorrow and bind up our wounds: in sickness you nurse us, and with pure milk you feed us. Jesus, by your dying we are born to new life: by your anguish and labour we come forth in joy. Despair turns to hope through your sweet goodness: through your gentleness we find comfort in fear. Your warmth gives life to the dead: your touch makes sinners righteous. Lord Jesus, in your mercy heal us: in your love and tenderness remake us. In your compassion bring grace and forgiveness: for the beauty of heaven may your love prepare us.

Saint Anselm of Canterbury (c. 1033 - 1109)

A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on children, facts, freedom, history, honor, individuality, pride, prosperity, respect, responsibility, schools, truth, and world

Regarding Ronald Reagan: In point of fact, the image of Ronald Reagan, the man responsible for shaping that decade (the 1980s), should be carved into Mount Rushmore, minted into coins, and emblazoned in a place of honor in every school child's history text as a constant reminder of this great man's contributions to world freedom, national pride, and individual prosperity. With the truth, the term 'Reaganomics' will be used only as a term of endearment and respect.

He passed a cottage with a double coach-house, A cottage of gentility! And he owned with a grin That his favourite sin Is pride that apes humility.
