vanity

A Quote by Abbot Nikon on god, vanity, humility, good, hope, victory, help, self, enlightenment, and holiness

In the battle with vanity, cling to the Gospel and example of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.  Do not rely on yourself, but on the Lord, not only in important matters, but even in seemingly insignificant ones.  Without the Lord, we are unable to do anything truly good for ourselves, and even that which initially seems good will turn out to be harmful if we haven't asked the Lord for help or prayed about it.

A Quote by Huston Smith on egotism, pride, and vanity

'Blessed are the poor in spirit, for they shall see God' suggested to me a heavenly welfare program for the meek. Today that saying reveals an astute insight into egotism, about how those with swollen pride or vanity cannot see anything larger than themselves.

A Quote by Kedar on nobility, selfishness, man, purity, action, happiness, god, vanity, uqv theory, and philosophy

Every noble action is selfish. Some selfish actions are nobler than others. But they are all selfish. And as such there can be no action purely noble anyway. Even the nobility in God's great philosophical intentions is bounded by his vanity.

A Quote by Kedar on god, man, humanity, sin, pain, misery, religion, christ, krishna, questioner, philosophy, semi-solipsism, vanity, vile, existence, and uqv theory

If God were to exist for the entire humanity, he would be profoundly vile, as he allows the existence of unfathomable sin, stupidity, madness, and misery for no reason than his own despicable enjoyment. God exists though, not for all humanity, but for a one chosen man - a philosopher - who is bound to answer the greatest philosophical question, the question about the nature of the questioner's existence, which progressively quenches the divine vanity.
