    Pride usually carries negative connotations. It is an arrogant, malicious trait which can lead to a person's ruin. Pride, however, can also be a source of positive motivation. It can encourage its host to perform great feats and thus obtain honor. This duality possessed by pride can be examined in two famous Medieval poems, The Song of Roland and Beowulf.
