Shyness has a strange element of narcissism, a belief that how we look, how we perform, is truly important to other people.

Andre Dubus

Jane Austen

Shyness is just egoism out of its depth.

Penelope Keith

The bashful are always aggressive at heart.

Charles Horton Cooley

The level of shyness has gone up dramatically in the last decade. I think shyness is an index of social pathology rather than a pathology of the individual.

Philip Zimbardo

It is only through timidity that states are lost.


What difference is there between us, save a restless dream that follows my soul but fears to come near you?

Kahlil Gibran

You know what my greatest personal stumbling block is? My shyness.

Susan Lucci

Don Rickles

Happiness hates the timid! So does science!

Eugene O'Neill

Shyness is just egotism out of its depth.

Penelope Keith

I used to hang out by the food table at parties because you don't have to talk to anybody. If you do then you can talk about the food.

Jennifer Jason Leigh

There is a shyness about me, and I really need to get out more.

Priscilla Presley

I started studying shyness in adults in 1972. Shyness operates at so many different levels. Out of that research came the Stanford shyness clinic in 1977.

Philip Zimbardo

What troubles me is the Internet and the electronic technology revolution. Shyness is fueled in part by so many people spending huge amounts of time alone, isolated on e-mail, in chat rooms, which reduces their face-to-face contact with other people.

Philip Zimbardo

In talking, shyness and timidity distort the very meaning of my words. I don't pretend to know anybody well. People are like shadows to me and I am like a shadow.

Gwen John

I think I had a shyness about me, I think I discovered acting as a way to break out of that and as a way of belonging, a sense of being special.

Michael C. Hall

The shy man does have some slight revenge upon society for the torture it inflicts upon him. He is able, to a certain extent, to communicate his misery. He frightens other people as much as they frighten him. He acts like a damper upon the whole room, and the most jovial spirits become, in his presence, depressed and nervous.

Jerome K. Jerome

I think we all have blocks between us and the best version of ourselves, whether it's shyness, insecurity, anxiety, whether it's a physical block, and the story of a person overcoming that block to their best self. It's truly inspiring because I think all of us are engaged in that every day.

Tom Hooper

I was passionate. I found something that I loved. I could be all alone in a big old skating rink and nobody could get near me and I didn't have to talk to anybody because of my shyness. It was great. I was in my fantasy world.

Dorothy Hamill

Scientists have found the gene for shyness. They would have found it years ago, but it was hiding behind a couple of other genes.

Jonathan Katz

Shy and proud men are more liable than any others to fall into the hands of parasites and creatures of low character. For in the intimacies which are formed by shy men, they do not choose, but are chosen.

Sir Henry Taylor

Timidity is a fault for which it is dangerous to reprove persons whom we wish to correct of it.

Francois de la Rochefoucauld
