“The only cure for vanity is laughter, and the only fault that is laughable is vanity.” –Henri Bergson
Like a blowhard, windbag or stuffed shirt, a vain ego is inflated by hot air.
“Flattery is a kind of bad money, to which our vanity gives us currency.” –Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Vain egos lack a sense of humor.
“A sense of humor is the ability to understand a joke – and that the joke is oneself.” –Clifton Fadiman
Blowing off one’s ego is like pricking a balloon.
“Letting go of your ego opens the door to taking a new and creative course of action.” –Suzanne Mayo Frindt
It only hurts if you don’t laugh.
