Miguel de Cervantes

The delicate balance between modesty and conceit is popularity.

Nothing so soothes our vanity as a display of greater vanity in others; it make us vain, in fact, of our modesty.

It is strange that modesty is the rule for women when what they most value in men is boldness.

Ninon De L'Enclos

I have met some highly intelligent believers, but history has no record to say that [s]he knew or understood the mind of god. Yet this is precisely the qualification which the godly must claim—so modestly and so humbly—to possess.

Charles Williams

As in all his subsequent dealings with France, Ho Chi Minh's demands were a model of modesty.

Wilfred Burchett

I knew I was a winner back in the late sixties. I knew I was destined for great things. People will say that kind of thinking is totally immodest. I agree. Modesty is not a word that applies to me in any way - I hope it never will.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

A just and reasonable modesty does not only recommend eloquence, but sets off every great talent which a man can be possessed of.

Joseph Addison

You have a good many little gifts and virtues, but there is no need of parading them, for conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long, and the great charm of all power is modesty.

Louisa May Alcott

One of the problems with sex education... is that it also strips kids - especially girls - of their modesty to have every detail of anatomy, physiology and condom usage made explicit.

James Dobson

Our life is half natural and half technological. Half-and-half is good. You cannot deny that high-tech is progress. We need it for jobs. Yet if you make only high-tech, you make war. So we must have a strong human element to keep modesty and natural life.

Nam June Paik
