I don’t have disguised arrogance.
And when I get quiet with a gentle smile on my face, you can bet that I am thinking about how humble I am.
I’m making a point, of course.
See, many arrogant people enjoy rubbing it in your face – but silence is not always a virtue either.
Few vices are as unattractive as pride, if you want to know the truth.
Most of what they call humility is successfully disguised arrogance.
