The Main Transgression against the Vain.  In society, he who gives another an opportunity of favourably setting forth his knowledge, sentiments, and experience sets himself above him.  Unless he is felt by the other to be a superior being without limitation, he is guilty of an attack upon his vanity, while what he aimed at was the gratification of the other man's vanity.
