Vanity or Pride

Is vanity a pain that holds you in contempt, watching the time has never spent, the time you will never have a chance to use it again? All that is lost will never again be.

Is vanity making us tired, tired of hesitation, hesitation that leads nowhere?

Because of vanity we tell words that are not to be told. Because of vanity we are not able to look at the truth. Because of vanity the people become strangers.

Everyone is vain.

But, at the end we are all the same, but our soul that reflects us. This is that counts. It remains for all time.

Is vanity the same as pride?

The pride makes us respect ourselves, the vanity asks for respect from others – Author unknown

    "Pride is a very common failing I believe. By all that I have ever read, I am convinced that it is very common indeed, that human nature is particularly prone to it, and that there are very few of us who do not cherish a feeling of self-complacency on the score of some quality or other, real or imaginary.

    Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonimously. 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."

    – Jane Austen, Pride & Prejudice

"Vanity dies hard; in some obstinate cases it outlives the man." - Robert Louis Stevenson

"Pride does not wish to owe and vanity does not wish to pay." François de la Rochefoucauld
