11 Vanity Quotes from Literature

Aunt Polly asked him questions that were full of guile, and very deep—for she wanted to trap him into damaging revealments. Like many other simple-hearted souls, it was her pet vanity to believe she was endowed with a talent for dark and mysterious diplomacy, and she loved to contemplate her most transparent devices as marvels of low cunning. ~ The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain "Had I been in love, I could not have been more wretchedly blind! But vanity, not love, has been my folly." ~ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen No insect hangs its nest on threads as frail as those which will sustain the weight of human vanity. ~ The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton Miss Bart was discerning enough to know that the inner vanity is generally in proportion to the outer self-depreciation. ~ The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton Our vanities differ as our noses do. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot It is less mortifying to believe one's self unpopular than insignificant, and vanity prefers to assume that indifference is a latent form of unfriendliness. ~ The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton "Vanity plays lurid tricks with our memory." ~ Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad Vanity is as ill at ease under indifference as tenderness is under a love which it cannot return. ~ Daniel Deronda by George Eliot Vanity working on a weak head, produces every sort of mischief. ~ Emma by 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." ~ Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
