“But no matter how high in the clouds this arrow of pride may fly...

.. and no matter how exuberant one may feel while being carried up so high, let us remember that the lightest of these arrows still has a heavy iron head. High as it may fly, therefore, it inevitably has to come down and hit the ground. And sometimes it lands in a not very clean place.”

"he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble." from Mary's song in Lk1:51-52
