pride goeth before a fall - Google Search
My father's favorite quote to me growing up...and it was always used when I was being stubborn and unable to admit wrong doing. "Pride comes before the fall. There is always another side to the story and your pride isn't worth not learning something." I think the first part "pride comes before the fall" is from the Bible. I can't remember where though....

C.S. Lewis on pride. Not just pride, but selfishness, is the root of all sins. Lust, greed, envy, materialism, laziness, ... anything that puts only our needs and desires first. All the sins follow. Die to self and sin dies too!
Its hard to let go of pride at times, but sometimes it is needed.
