Think of how tiny our planet is when viewed from outer space. It is so small and insignificant, that any person who demands honor from others is making a fool of himself.
Think about the leaders of countries who wage wars to gain more honor for themselves. From the perspective of the minuteness of our planet in relation to the entire universe, a person's seeking honor is ridiculous.
(Gesher Hachayim, vol.3, p.39; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p. 277)
