Pride before a fall

Pride doesn’t come before a fall and the intimation that it does is actually very negative.

It seems to suggest that we shouldn’t take pride in what we do, so a half-arsed job is good enough… Also, I’ve fallen many times when I’ve felt a bit crap about myself (possibly more so than when I’ve been proud, because I haven’t really been looking where I’m going).

So if someone sneerily tells you that “Pride comes before a fall!” they are not only wrong, but I would suggest probably also not very happy about their own current situation.

I’d recommend tripping the bugger up!
