Pride is the Stone

Pride is not just the stone
     that trips us up and
          makes us fall,
Pride is the stone we see
     that keeps us from looking up
          and seeing God at all.
Pride is the stone, you see,
     that looks forward to nothing
          more than the next time
               it makes us crawl.*

*C.S. Lewis in Mere Christianity
