Vanity Quotes

Five of the best book quotes about vanity
  1. #1
    “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.”
  2. #2
    “Man is the vainest of all creatures that have their being upon earth.”
  3. #3
    Vanity working on a weak head produces every sort of mischief.
  4. #4
    “Vanity was stronger than love at sixteen and there was no room in her hot heart now for anything but hate.”
  5. #5
    “Why then, O brawling love! O loving hate!
    O any thing, of nothing first create!
    O heavy lightness, serious vanity,
    Misshapen chaos of well-seeming forms,
    Feather of lead, bright smoke, cold fire, sick health,
    Still-waking sleep, that is not what it is!
    This love feel I, that feel no love in this.”
