The worst viper in the human heart!

(
Jonathan Edwards)

Pride is the worst viper in the human heart!
 
Pride is the greatest disturber of the soul's
peace, and of sweet communion with Christ.

Pride is with the greatest difficulty rooted out.

Pride is the most hidden, secret, and deceitful
of all lusts!

Pride often creeps insensibly into the midst of
religion, even, sometimes, under the disguise
of humility itself!
