English term or phrase:piques himself on commendations
If the praise conferred upon [the humble man] is not just, he will not think himself warranted to lay any stress upon it, for it is an evidence of pride when a man despises undeserved reproaches, and yet ***piques himself on commendations*** which are equally groundless, and therefore equally vain.
