Friends:

Any Pride gives wounded Pride ending in Arrogance:

COOLED
One whose senses have been guarded & calmed,
like horses well tamed by the trainer, whose pride,
conceit & mental fermentation are all uprooted,
Even the Divine loves such one.
Dhammapada 94

CURED
The one who has shredded both lust, hate &
folly pride as the fallen seed, which never again
returns to the straw, such one is a Holy One.
Dhammapada 407

STILLED
One should cool any anger,
let go of any pride and
relinquish any attachment.
Such cooled one, not clinging neither
to identity, body, form nor any world
cannot ever suffer any pain...
Dhammapada 221

MY BODY
It is a bag held up by bones, plastered with flesh,
blood and skin. In it lives aging, sickness, death,
puffed pride & sleek self-deceit...
Dhammapada 150

TRANSMISSION
If a Bhikkhu masters his speech.
If he speaks exact, clever & wise.
If he is not of puffed up by pride.
If he expound both text, meaning & spirit.
Then exceedingly sweet will be his talks.
Dhammapada 363
