Pride and Arrogance

“There is all the difference in the world between pride and arrogance. Arrogance is the belief that you are better than others. Jews have sometimes been guilty of this, and it is inexcusable. Pride is simply knowing that each of us is different and being at ease with that fact, never “desiring this man’s gift and that man’s scope.” Arrogance diminishes others, and therefore diminishes us. Pride values others, because we have learned to value ourselves.”
