Sincerity is not a spontaneous flower nor is modesty either.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Modesty is the color of virtue.
Grateful daughters of God guard their bodies carefully, for they know they are the wellsprings of life, and they reverence life. They don't uncover their bodies to find favor with the world. They walk in modesty to be in favor with their Father In Heaven. They know he loves them dearly.
Margaret D. Nadauld
The delicate balance between modesty and conceit is popularity.
True it is that covetousness is rich, modesty starves.
I'm a religious woman. And I feel I have responsibility. I have no modesty at all. I'm even afraid of it - it's a learned affectation and it's just stuck on me like decals. Now I pray for humility because that comes from inside out.
A just and reasonable modesty does not only recommend eloquence, but sets off every great talent which a man can be possessed of.
Modesty is not only an ornament, but also a guard to virtue.
Modesty and unselfishness - these are the virtues which men praise - and pass by.
Conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long; even if it is, the consciousness of possessing and using it well should satisfy one, and the great charm of all power is modesty.
Louisa May Alcott
Modesty is my best quality.
If modesty disappeared, so would exhibitionism.
Modesty in dress and language and deportment is a true mark of refinement and a hallmark of a virtuous Latter-day Saint woman.
Ezra Taft Benson
Modesty is a vastly overrated virtue.
John Kenneth Galbraith
Bling is over. Red carpet covered with rhinestones is out. I call it 'the new modesty.'
It is strange that modesty is the rule for women when what they most value in men is boldness.
Ninon de L'Enclos
We must watch over our modesty in the presence of those who cannot understand its grounds.
I don't look in the mirror; don't like what I see; never have. I am not my idea of a beauty. Never was. This is not false modesty. I've just never been enamoured of my face, which of course is magnified umpteen times on screen.
I have often wished I had time to cultivate modesty... but I am too busy thinking about myself.
Modesty seldom resides in a breast that is not enriched with nobler virtues.
Remember that with her clothes a woman puts off her modesty.
At least I have the modesty to admit that lack of modesty is one of my failings.
Modesty is the only sure bait when you angle for praise.
Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
First and foremost, the monk should own nothing in this world, but he should have as his possessions solitude of the body, modesty of bearing, a modulated tone of voice, and a well-ordered manner of speech. He should be without anxiety as to his food and drink, and should eat in silence.
No education can be of true advantage to young women but that which trains them up in humble industry, in great plainness of living, in exact modesty of dress.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
John F. Kennedy
