P - R - I - D - E
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
