There was once upon a time a parrot. It sometimes repeated what it heard.
I think vanity is not a sin, it is infact a double edged sword. All your wonders of the world are manifestations of a rich & powerful person's desire for immense glory.Yeah! We love flattery. We carry it long after it has lost its meaning.
Love the second part of your comment! Touché!!You should read the whole of the quote tho, and not just the clipped version that I have put up here.I would not agree with ALL wonders of the world being manifestation of that desire... I think, only MANY wonders or even MOST wonders are expressions of that desire. Dont you think there is some satisfaction in a job well done or that curiosity could also motivate? After all da Vinci’s papers were found quite a few years after his death. SO perhaps the desire that you talk about makes people advertise the achievement as well, while so many great things have just passed unsung.
