Blush Quotations

One is never so dangerous when one has no shame, than when one has grown too old to blush.
Marquis de Sade

After the first blush of sin comes its indifference.
Henry David Thoreau

Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive, half wishing they were dead to save the shame. The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow; They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats, and flare up bodily, wings and all. What then? Who's sorry for a gnat or girl?
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

We should often blush for our very best actions, if the world did but see all the motives upon which they were done.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld

If I were the blushing kind, I would blush to be called a hero.
Aung San Suu Kyi
