prided

  1. simple past tense and past participle of pride
    • 1820 The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Washington Irving
      "Ichobod prided himself upon his dancing as much as upon his vocal powers. Not a limb, not a fibre about him was idle; and to have seen his loosely hung frame in full motion and clattering about the room you would have thought Saint Vitus himself, that blessed patron of the dance, was figuring before you in person."
