My senior year in college, I took a philosophy course. I was an International Business major but needed the social science hours to complete my degree. I thought philosophy sounded like a pretty low key course where I could show up and get the “C” I needed to get the hours and as they say ” get the degree”. To get out of the course, I had to write a paper and the subject the professor gave us to write about was “pride”. I turned the paper in and when I got it back from the professor I was astonished. He gave me an A+! I had never received an A+ for any paper I had ever written so I went to the professor to ask him how and why I got the A+. He told me he had never had a student take the position and understand at such a young age that the fatal flaw of most people is their hubris.
