"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."
"A lady's imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony, in a moment."
"Nothing is more deceitful ... than the appearance of humility. It is often only carelessness of opinion, and sometimes an indirect boast."
"The power of doing anything with quickness is always prized much by the possessor, and often without any attention to the imperfection of the performance."
"You expect me to account for opinions which you choose to call mine, but which I have never acknowledged."
"We must not be so ready to fancy ourselves intentionally injured. We must not expect a lively young man to be always so guarded and circumspect. It is very often nothing but our own vanity that deceives us. Women fancy admiration means more than it does."
Thanks Mark and Lala for our very elegant dresses, which we have worn since they arrived!
