THE PROUD MAN AND TALK
The proud man will scarcely ever talk too much. He will lie in wait and drop in the epigram where it is exactly needed. He will feast upon speechless superiority, while the modes and unconscious man goes on like Niagara explaining the principles of socialism or the humours of his eldest son. The humble man will be always talkative; for he is interested in his subject and knows that it is best shown in talk. But the proud man will be generally silent; for he is not interested in his subject but in himself. And he knows that he looks best when he is not talking. G. K. Chesteron, A Handful of Authors, page 152.
