~ C.S. Lewis:  “Well, now, we have come to the center.  According to Christian teachers, the essential vice, the utmost evil, is pride.  Unchastity, anger, grief, drunkenness and all that are mere flea bites in comparison.  It was through pride that the devil became the devil.  Pride leads to every vice.  It is a complete anti-God state of mind.”
