    You could not let it go because your vanity was stronger.

    Hello.

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct?

    "You could not let it go because your vanity was stronger."

    Thanks.

    Re: You could not let it go because your vanity was stronger.

    It's grammatically correct but it doesn't sound right.

    'Strong' is not the right word to use with 'vanity'. And "stronger" than what?
