On Arrogance

 From Aristakes Lastivertci's History:

Sin is dreadful and sinners are denied the wisdom and adoption of God, but most unbearable of all is arrogance held by princes and kings, unschooled by the memory of arrogant folk in the past who were destroyed. That wicked disease destroys all who become affected by it, because the adversary of arrogance, according to the Proverbs, is none other than God himself.
