“Arrogance is the armor worn by hollow men.”
—Missouri Governor, Eric Greitens in his book, Resilience
How true, how pathetically sad and how all-too-obvious. You can see this being verified in pulpits, pews and throughout the public at large week after week. Arrogance really is the armor of hollow men; men who try to compensate for, and cover-up, their own personal incompetencies and insecurities with an air of superiority and a colossal rudeness towards and mistreatment of other people. These are pompous, petty people, characterized by hard-heartedness, soft-headedness and thin skins. My experience has been that it’s difficult to help people like this, and dangerous to try.
