H.u.b.r.i.s Another Spelling of C.l.i.n.t.o.n

If you were born Somewhere, hubris would come easy. But if you are Nowhere's child, hubris is an import, pride a thing you decide to acquire. 

To the Greeks, hubris referred to extreme pride; especially pride and ambition so great that they offend the gods and lead to one's downfall. Hubris was a character flaw often seen in the heroes of classical Greek tragedy, including Oedipus and Achilles.
