On thinking too highly of oneself...

"It will not hurt you to consider yourself worse than others, even if this is not really so; but it will hurt greatly if you prefer yourself above another, although that person might be a great sinner.  A humble person is a peaceful person; but the hearts of the proud are full of envy and resentment."

The Imitation of Christ, Book One, Chapter Seven
