We the unwilling, led by the unknowing,
Doing the unnecessary for the ungrateful,
Have done so much with so little for so long,
Now we can do anything with nothing.

"This above all:
to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man."

The fact that pride is universal is undeniable. Haughtiness, arrogance, conceit, inordinate self-esteem, vanity, and vainglory are as common as the air we breathe. You and I both know that this is true. Ours is a proud, defiant age! Yes, internationally, nationally, socially, and personally. The sin of pride is responsible for so much of the confusion, sorrow, heartache, and tragedy in our world today. Yes, pride in its various guises is an evidence that we are living in the last days, as we are told in II Tim. 3:2,4:“Men shall be lovers of their own selves...boasters, proud...heady, highminded.” So I believe this is a timely message, warning men of the sin of pride, of God’s hatred for it and His judgment against it.

That was something quoted many times by those of us in the military during the Vietnam era. Seems very appropriate.

You are close.
The quote is attributed to 2 people. Mother Teresa is one of them.
But the other one was Konstantin Josef Jireček (July 24, 1854, in Vienna — January 10, 1918, in Vienna), a Czech historian, diplomat and slavist.
Since Mother Teresa wasn't born until 1910, looks like Jirecek was the first to say it.
