Vanity and Humility

2 Dec

You know it is not the humble one

who says they do not want to blow

their own horn

It is the vain

They say this and then they go ahead

and blow

Vain people can be sneaky

I don’t even think humble people have a

horn to blow

Nevertheless vanity and humility are closely


Once I was told about all the ways this guy

helped out people without anyone ever knowing

But you know, I said

If you are impressed by someone’s humility

chances are this is someone quite vain

who wants you to notice

On the other hand, just because somebody is famous

does necessarily mean they are vain

they may wear their fame like a clown suit

they are forced to wear to school
