If a man thinks he is not conceited, he is very conceited indeed.
Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him.
If I’m conceited enough to believe I’m invincible, then maybe it will take me doing the very thing I swore I would never do to understand that I’m not as wonderful as I thought I was.
Just because you're beautiful and perfect, it's made you conceited.
However strange it may well seem, to do one's duty will make any one conceited who only does it sometimes. Those who do it always would as soon think of being conceited of eating their dinner as of doing their duty. What honest boy would pride himself on not picking pockets? A thief who was trying to reform would. To be conceited of doing one's duty is then a sign of how little one does it, and how little one sees what a contemptible thing it is not to do it. Could any but a low creature be conceited of not being contemptible? Until our duty becomes to us common as breathing, we are poor creatures.
In contrast to your usual minions, I imagine, I’m a bit more awed by your conceit and arrogance than I am by your supposed magnificence.
But the conceited man did not hear him. Conceited people never hear anything but praise.
i was told i was conceited today.... but being conceited would imply that i see my self as being absolutely perfect.... but come on lets be real ........ EVERYONE KNOWS IM PERFECT.
An ordinary man gets arrogant with beauty, conceited with knowledge and ruthless with power.
Premature independence is the daughter of conceit.
