Calvin on Pride

"And let it be understood that, by his being made of earth and clay, a restraint was laid upon pride; since nothing is more absurd than for creatures to glory in their excellence who not only inhabit a cottage of clay but who are themselves composed partly of dust and ashes"

John Calvin, On the Christian Faith (New York: Bobbs-Merrill, 1957), 37.
