“Pride is faith in the idea that God had, when he made us. A proud man is conscious of the idea, and aspires to realize it. He does not strive towards a happiness, or comfort, which may be irrelevant to God’s idea of him. His success is the idea of God, successfully carried through, and he is in love with his destiny…Love the pride of God beyond all things, and the pride of your neighbor as your own.”
-Isak Dinesen from Out of Africa
