View quotes by Tom Wolfe

Vanity, like murder, will out (The Belle's Strategem)
View quotes by Hannah Cowley

A terrible vanity, really, but as you get older... [on employing a personal trainer]
View quotes by Simon Schama

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

Curiosity is but vanity. Oftenest one wishes to know but to talk of it. Otherwise one would not go to sea if he were never to say anything about it, and for the sole pleasure of seeing, without hope of ever communicating what he has seen.
View quotes by Blaise Pascal

God how I hate new countries: They are older than the old, more sophisticated, much more conceited, only young in a certain puerile vanity more like senility than anything.
View quotes by D H Lawrence

Possibly, more people kill themselves and others out of hurt vanity than out of envy, jealousy, malice or desire for revenge
View quotes by Iris Murdoch

And the fruit of my vanity is shame, and repentance, and the clear knowledge that whatever the world finds pleasing, is but a brief dream.
View quotes by Petrarch

We Caskodens take great pride in our ancestry. Some persons, I know, hold all that to be totally un-Solomonlike and the height of vanity, but, they, usually, have no ancestors of whom to be proud
View quotes by Charles Major

There is nothing can pay one for that invaluable ignorance which is the companion of youth, those sanguine groundless hopes, and that lively vanity which makes all the happiness of life.
View quotes by Mary Wortley

View quotes by Iris Murdoch

Our civilization survives in the complacency of cowardly or malignant minds - a sacrifice to the vanity of aging adolescents. In 1953, excess is always a comfort, and sometimes a career.
View quotes by Albert Camus

Pleasure is a shadow, wealth is vanity, and power a pageant; but knowledge is ecstatic in enjoyment, perennial in frame, unlimited in space and indefinite in duration.
View quotes by De Witt Clinton

Most frequently we make confidants from vanity, a love of talking, a wish to win the confidence of others, and to make an exchange of secrets
View quotes by Duc De La Rochefoucauld

Whatever talents I possess may suddenly diminish or suddenly increase. I can with ease become an ordinary fool. I may be one now. But it doesn't do to upset one's own vanity.
View quotes by Dylan Thomas

View quotes by Aristotle

Beauty is a great gift of heaven; not for the purpose of female vanity, but a great gift for one who loves, and wishes to be beloved
View quotes by Maria Edgeworth

'Vanitas vanitatum' has rung in the ears
Of gentle and simple for thousands of years;
The wail still is heard, yet its notes never scare
Either simple or gentle from Vanity Fair
View quotes by Frederick Locker-Lampson
