A man is never so proud as when striking an attitude of humility. C. S. Lewis (1898–1963)

A proud man is always looking down on things and people; and, of course, as long as you’re looking down, you can’t see something that’s above you. C. S. Lewis (1898–1963)

A vain man can never be utterly ruthless; he wants to win applause, and therefore he accommodates himself to others. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749–1832)

Absalom was vain about his hair, therefore was he hanged by his hair. Talmud

An egotist is a man whose self-importance makes his mind shrink while his head swells.

And the devil did grin, for his darling sin Is pride that apes humility. Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)
