Meaning of Pride Goes before a Fall?

Answer

This is actually a common mis-quote from the Bible. Proverbs 16:18 'Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall'. Pride and haughty have similar definitions. I believe this scripture tells the reader that their pride will be what brings them into destruction. Pride leads one into destruction, and being haughty will lead to a (spiritual) fall.
