Pride and arrogance - Will they always go together?One should always be humble and polite even after reaching new heights in life and people feel proud of their achievements. We are always alerted like this by our teachers and elders since our childhood. But when it comes into reality, some of the people appear to be arrogant and it sometimes overshadows their glory.
I would like to recall the quote by John Austin in his famous book 'Pride and Prejudice' - "Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us."
But those who achieve name and fame appear to be more arrogant which is shown in their actions and reactions. We observe the tendency in popular celebrities in the area of sports, film industry and politics or even some spiritual gurus.
Do you think that pride and arrogance go together always?
