Arrogance blocks honor either by seeking it or by rejecting it. (Dan Rockwell, fitness enthusiast)
We are often disappointed by someone who is a successful winner but who is arrogant. Pride is a strong turn off for lots of people. Rockwell also says, “Arrogance yields agonizing emptiness,” and he notes this contrast, “Humility welcomes others.” To win friends, shun pride and be humble.
Haughtiness goes before destruction; humility precedes honor. (Proverbs 18:12)
