"Quicksand" is something one gets trapped in. "Vanity" can be metaphorically the same.
Student or Learner
Could you please teach me what is the meaning of the following saying:
Vanity is the quicksand of reason (George Sand)
Thank you so much for your help.
Yes. Quicksand (did you look it up?) is deep mud that sucks you under and suffocates you. So vanity is deep mud that kills reason.
yuheci, you have been a member long enough to know that a better title would have been Vanity is the quicksand of reason.
