THOUGHT: It occurs to me that the best test of whether one is qualified to lead, is to find out if any one is following. D.E. Dixon Hoste . Pride is the king of vices…it is the first of the pallbearers of the soul…other vices destroy only their opposite virtues, as wantonness destroys chastity; greed destroys temperance; anger destroys gentleness; but pride destroys all virtues. Fulton Sheen.
