"Pride is not all of one kind"

Biddy says of Joe Gargery in Great Expectations "he may be too proud to let any one take him out of a place that he is competent to fill, and fits well and with respect"

Also, there is loyalty to Pip in which pride wouldn't let Joe ruin Pip's great expectations by trying to become more sophisticated himself and make Pip's acceptance depend on his acceptance.

Karen Horney was right and pride is the mark of the nuclear complexes.

There is no writer with an eye for ugliness but with such liveliness and exuberance as Dickens.
