A Quote by Richard Brinsley Sheridan on attitude, heart, ideas, justice, men, mercy, mind, pride, and purity

Justice-august and pure, the abstract idea of all that would be perfect in the spirits and the inspirations of men!-where the mind rises; where the heart expands; where the countenance is ever placid and benign; where her favorite attitude is to stoop to the unfortunate; to hear their cry and to help them; to rescue and relieve; to succor and save; majestic, from its mercy; venerable, from its Lutility; uplifted, without pride; firm without obduracy; beneficent in each preference; lovely, though in her frown!

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on ambition, art, character, genius, mistakes, poetry, pride, sensuality, talent, and truth

The peril of every fine faculty is the delight of playing with it for pride. Talent is commonly developed at the expense of character, and the greater it grows, the more is the mischief. Talent is mistaken for genius, a dogma or system for truth, ambition for greatest, ingenuity for poetry, sensuality for art.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on decisions, dignity, ethics, excellence, pride, respect, self-respect, and vanity

Live according to the ethics of excellence, and you can always stand proud. Pride - not vanity, but dignity and self-respect - should carry a lot of weight in helping you make decisions. Let pride help you decide.
