I remember recently reading a members signature that had a great quote that had to do with arrogance and confidence. I cannot locate the quote as I don't remember the user.

If the user is you or you know what I'm referring to, please reply.

Thank you.

Could the quote be

"My confidence is often mistaken for arrogance. That's fine, I'd rather be mistaken for arrogant than treated like a pushover.”

My favorite is -

"Stay silent and let them think you are stupid don't risk confirming it."

Perhaps it was not arrogance but ignorance:

[I]gnorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science.

—Charles Darwin, as quoted in Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World (1995)


All you need is ignorance and confidence and the success is sure.
Mark Twain

How's about ?

"Arrogance is thinking you are better than everyone else, while Confidence is knowing no one else is better than you." -Me ;) https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-announce/2010-October/000139.html
