I have been told, from time to time, that I am, or "are" arrogant...
I have addressed this issue in another post within this blog titled, HUMILITY.
It has occurred to me that although I did mention the word "Arrogance" in my article, I never defined it as I probably should have considering the importance of my use of the word in that particular blog-post.
I reprint the relevant portions of the definition of "Arrogant", according to dictionary.com, right here: 

Ar·ro·gant [ar-uh-guh nt] Show IPA
making claims or pretensions to superiorimportance or rights; overbearingly assuming;insolently proud: an arrogant public official.
characterized by or proceeding from arrogance:arrogant claims.

Arrogant is a PSAT word you need to know.
So is amass. Does it mean:

to come together; assemble

Pleased, esp. with oneself or one's merits, advantages, situation, etc., often without awareness of some potential danger or defect; self-satisfied a complacent smile.

I don't know exactly where it comes from, but the last paragraph here is what I identify with the most. And, with this definition in mind, I must gratefully acknowledge those people who have called me arrogant. I agree by this final definition, I am indeed arrogant.

Much love to all human beings and all other life on Earth!
