Famous quotes containing the word proud:

    That title of respect
    Which the proud soul ne’er pays but to the proud.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    So cruel prison how could betide, alas,
    As proud Windsor, Where I in lust and joy
    With a king’s son my childish years did pass
    In greater feast than Priam’s sons of Troy?
    Where each sweet place returns a taste full sour;
    Henry Howard, Earl Of Surrey (1517?–1547)

    Our ability to fall in love requires enough comfort with our masculinity to join it with someone’s femininity and feel enhanced. . . . If our mother made us feel secure and proud in our masculinity, then we want to find that again in our wife. If we are really comfortable with our mother, we can even marry a woman who is a friend rather than an adversary, and form a true partnership.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)
