If "familiarity breeds contempt" than "arrogance breeds hate" and people do not forget.
"The Times They Are A-Changin" says or rather sings Bob Dylan.Some people think not.They live in the past.
Those siting high on the pedestal think they would be there forever.They forgot "what comes up must come down"
It does not pay to be arrogant no matter how successful you are.There will be a time when things will be a changing and you may have to eat the humble pie.
There will be a time when it's payback time from those you treat with contempt.
