Vanity quotes

William Makepeace Thackeray
People who do not know how to laugh are always pompous and self-conceited.

George Eliot
It is possible to have a strong self-love without any self-satisfaction, rather with a self-discontent which is the more intense because one's own little core of egoistic sensibility is a supreme care.

Blaise Pascal
Vanity is so secure in the heart of man that everyone wants to be admired: even I who write this, and you who read this

Bertrand Russell
I observe that a very large portion of the human race does not believe in God and suffers no visible punishment in consequence. And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that he would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence.

Robert Frost
Man that is of woman born is apt to be as vain has his mother.

William Hutton
The charity that hastens to proclaim its good deeds, ceases to be charity, and is only pride and ostentation.

Jane Austen
Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves vanity, to what we would have others think of us.

Hebbel
Religion is the highest vanity.
