  1. Arrogance

    Arrogance is a rock band from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In the 1970s and early 1980s it was one of the most popular local bands in the state. The group has released six full length albums in its history and an early non-LP single. In 1983 the group entered a dormant period and the members did not perform together again until 2000, when the band reunited for a few select concerts and gigs in the Triangle area in celebration of Arrogance's 30th anniversary. The most notable was the "Reunion" concert at the North Carolina Museum of Art Amphitheatre in Raleigh in 2000. After large turnouts at the band's 2000 performances, Arrogance began performing again in local clubs, bars, and at special events, averaging about one show a year. The band's current lineup consists of Rod Abernethy, Don Dixon, Scott Davison, Robert Kirkland, and Marty Stout.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Many people misconstrue confidence with arrogance and vice versa, although the two are truly distinct and quite different IMHO. Confident person knows that no one is above him/her, and treats everyone with equality. Arrogant person believes that everyone is below her/him, and doesn't treat others with equality, respect and dignity. And that's what differentiates Confidence from Arrogance!

  3. Howard Ross:

  4. Janice Baker-Kinney:

    Your arrogance sparked a movement that has grown to thousands of women taking back their self esteem and proudly standing up for what is morally right, thank you for your enormous ego and arrogance, for without it we might not be here today.

  5. Robert F. Kennedy, 1966 speech to South African young people:

    Our future may lie beyond our vision, but it is not completely beyond our control. It is the shaping impulse of America that neither fate nor nature nor the irresistible tides of history, but the work of our own hands, matched to reason and principle, that will determine our destiny. There is pride in that, even arrogance, but there is also experience and truth. In any event, it is the only way we can live.
