Quotes to Consider:

John Calvin on pride: "Whoever proudly arrogates to himself more than is his due, will almost necessarily treat others with contempt ... That man can never be rightly framed to obey Christ whose looks are lofty, and whose heart is proud."

John Calvin on providence: "Let us ... learn to see ... by the eyes of faith, both in accidental circumstances (as they are called) and in the evil designs of men, that secret providence of God, which directs all events to a result pre-determined by himself ... When the faithful represent God as the author of their calamities, it is not in the way of murmuring against him, but that they may, with greater confidence, seek relief, as it were, from the same hand which smote and wounded them."
