Pride
etymology

From gay pride

noun
- An festival primarily for LGBT people, usually organized annually within a city.

Arrogance is an overbearing pride evidence by a superior manner to inferiors. Pride is a feeling of high esteem and derivation of pleasuring in measuring self-worth. Such people see themselves as lord overall and feel they can trample over others and nothing happens, alas Pride is in them and God hates it.

The good book says – pride goes before destruction, and if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. And you should let another praise you and not your own mouth, a stranger and not your own lips.
A man who says “I AM KING” is no true KingTywin Lannister

God himself opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble. When pride comes, then comes disgrace but with humility comes wisdom and honor. People who are very proud often forget that a tree cannot make a forest and with their arrogance they step on toes of people who did no wrong in order to preserve their pride. But they forget – What goes around, comes around

Avoid Pride and Arrogance. – For the fall of a man begins when pride arrives.
