External displays of arrogance and conceit are signs of an inner feeling of weakness. An insecure person tries to hide that insecurity by bluffing strength.

The arrogant person should realize that all he has, even wisdom, is a gift from the Almighty. It is a gift entirely undeserved, since it comes from the source of all wisdom, given over to a being without any original intelligence.

Is there any basis for someone who receives a large gift to feel conceited, compared to someone who received a smaller gift?
