(Story.Line)
Quote #1

With their snoots in the air, [the Star-Bellies] would sniff and they'd snort / "We'll have nothing to do with the Plain-Belly sort!" (Sneetches.11-12)

Too much pride = jerk. This law is universal, defying all races, religions, and creeds.

Quote #2

When the Star-Belly children went out to play ball, / Could a Plain Belly get in the gameā€¦? Not at all. (Sneetches.13-14)

Pride sometimes passes from parent to child, like it's genetic or something.

Quote #3

"I'm a North-Going Zax and I always go north. / Get out of my way, now, and let me go forth!" (Zax.10-11)

Extreme pride and common decency are like oil and water. One just slides through the other no matter how hard you shake.
