Anger the Gods

The English language picked up both the concept of Hubris and the term for that particular brand of cockiness from the ancient Greeks, who considered Hubris a dangerous character trait capable of provoking the wrath of the gods. Typically, overconfidence led the hero to attempt to overstep the boundaries of human limitations and assume a godlike status, and the gods inevitably humbled the offender with a sharp reminder of his or her mortality.
