C. S. Lewis on pride:
“The Christians are right; it is Pride which has been the chief cause of misery in every nation and every family since the world began…. In God you come up against something which is in every respect immeasurably superior to yourself. Unless you know God as that…you don’t know God at all. As long as you are proud you cannot know God. A proud man is always looking down on things and people, and, of course, as long as you are looking down, you cannot see something that is above you.”
Heck, when I am looking down on people, I can’t even see the people that are on my level. Wait, aren’t we all on the same level?
