Vanity is searching for transitory riches and  your hope in them.

Vanity is to seek honour and social advancement.

Vanity is following the desires of the flesh and desiring that for which you must later be severely punished.

Vanity is to desire a long life and to have little concern for a good life.

Vanity is to only see the present life and not to provide for the future.

Vanity is to love that which passes quickly and not hasten towards that where eternal joy is to be found.

Thomas Kempis
