3.7 Pride (Latin, superbia)
In Dante's Divine Comedy, the penitent were forced to walk with stone slabs bearing down on their backs in order to induce feelings of humility
I dont want to go that far.
Why do people say "take PRIDE in your work" and "Proud Parent" and "be proud of who you are"?
What ever you do dont do it. It seems like a good idea and you feel good about your slef. Soon you will starve for attention and do more to get it. It will be an addiction.
Life is an addiction
Everyting you do you have to do in moderation.
Eat too much you will get fat and die. (of course other things come along with that)
Learn to live with your addiction.
Thus suicide was deemed as the ultimate, albeit tragic, expression of wrath directed inwardly, a final rejection of God's gifts.
Use "Gods" gifts in moderation.
Sloth (Latin, acedia)... of America. Not quite, but close. They just work to work so they can make money to survive the addicton to greed they envy thoese who have big TVs and Vacations.... in turn they need Pride in their work to be good at what they do. You dont see that sin around much any more.
and Lust but not least
Wrath (Latin, ira) Where the fuck is all the gas?!?!!? Go on and Fuck your gas tank hole and set your dick on fire!
