Quote of the Day

View quotes by Ellen Terry

The world tolerates conceit from those who are successful, but not from anybody else.
View quotes by John Blake

A strong conceit is rich; so most men deem:
If not to be, 'tis comfort yet to seem
View quotes by John Marston

A certain amount of distrust is wholesome, but not so much of others as of ourselves; neither vanity not conceit can exist in the same atmosphere with it.
View quotes by Suzanne Curchod Necker

Conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long; even if it is, the consciousness of possessing and using it well should satisfy one, and the great charm of all power is modesty.
View quotes by Louisa May Alcott

View quotes by John Dewey
