Pride comes before a fall

May 23, 2016

This you must always remember and never ever forget.

————————————————————-

‘A man once lamented to me. They don’t respect me…if they really have respect for me. They would not have done what they did to me. I asked of this man, why even expect anything from people who you hardly know….don’t you think, you’re setting yourself up for the fall? Don’t you think that sort of lofty expectation of others who you hardly know speaks of false pride?

In this world, a wise man can really only expect to control what goes on between his ears….it is foolish and unrealistic to try to impose control over others…to hold such an attitude is to be needlessly proud.’
