After having seen a man of pride,
a great teacher told one of his students, "If you ever see me acting in a manner
such as that - with such pride - please do me a favor and kick me in the behind."
The student looked at the teacher and asked if he really meant that. The teacher responded
that of course he meant it, as he never wanted to be so full of ego.
The student, looking the teacher in the eye, said, "Bend over!"
