P - R - I - D - E

There is one vice of which no person in the world is free; which every one in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else; and of which hardly anyone ever imagines that they are guilty themselves. 

There is no fault which makes a person more unpopular, and no fault which we are more unconscious of in ourselves. And the more we have it ourselves, the more we dislike it in others. I pointed out a moment ago that the more pride one had, the more one disliked pride in others. 

It is because I wanted to be the big noise at the party that I am so annoyed at someone else being the big noise. The point is that each person's pride is in competition with every one else's pride. CSLewis
