Grades of Concealing It

In heaven I yearn for knowledge, account all else inanity;
On earth I confess an itch for the praise of fools - that's vanity.   ~ Robert Browning

I loathe narcissism, but I approve of vanity.  ~ Diana Vreeland

Vanity is so secure in the heart of man that everyone wants to be admired; even I who write this, and you who read this.  ~ Blaise Pascal

There are no grades of vanity; there are only grades of concealing it.  ~ Mark Twain

Or, rather, let us be more simple and less vain.   ~ Jean-Jacques Rousseau
