Arrogance Vs. Humility
Get a little taste of what the Congress might have looked and sounded like in this clip from the HBO miniseries, John Adams. What do you think of John Adams' demeanor here?
Contrast his mood with George Washington's as portrayed by these actors. How were they each perceived by their peers in the Congress? What lesson about humility vs. pride can we learn?
Watch heavy-weight boxer Muhammad Ali, described as the "King of Trash Talk" present himself to the press.
Ali's big talk was part of his charm most of the time, but can you imagine George Washington telling the Second Continental Congress how he was "the greatest" and most qualified for the task. I wonder what that would have looked like. Would arrogance have earned Washington the position of commander-in-chief, or was humility part of his charm?
and the kind of pride people should have in themselves or their work?
