Pride is a Spiritual Cancer

C.S. Lewis のprideに関しての考察

Pride does not mean self-respect or self-love. Pride means self-conceit, the need to feel superior to others.

Pleasure in being praised is not pride. The problem develops when you pass from thinking ' I have pleased him; all is well,' to thinking, 'What a fine person I must be to have done it.'

The more you delight in yourself and the less you delight in the praise, the worse you are becoming.

When you delight wholly in yourself and do not care about the praise at all, you have reached bottom.

Pride eats up the very possibility of love, or contentment, or even common sense.

A proud man is always looking down on things and on people: and of course, as long as you are looking down, you can not see something above you.
