Q: What is the difference between pride and vanity. ?
A: If i am 'vain' then that means i look in the mirror A LOT. Too much. It is used to describe people who take selfies all day and put on makeup every hour and do their hair. "vanity project", the term i used in my previous example, describes how people or companies will create something big that just looks good on the outside, but is often empty/not good underneath. It describes how something looks. How it appears.

Pride is completely different because it is more like an emotion than a description of something... "i have pride in my work" means i feel like i did a great and good job. If i did a vanity job then it means i made it look good on the outside but actually it's a lot of rubbish, no one would use this to describe themselves or their work.
