26 Modesty Quotes to Remind You Not To Boast

Modesty Quotes
Be inspired by our collection of Modesty Quotes. Modesty is a trait that we all should have a bit of, but try not to take it too far. I believe personally that if you are too modest then your great works will never be showcased, and the world will not know what you have done. Obviously, there is a fine line between pride in your work and boasting so be careful how far you venture down the pride path as too much is going to be harmful.

Throughout history the term modesty has been widely used against women, encroaching on the way they want to display their bodies. In modern times this is no longer acceptable and for good reason! A woman should be able to dress how they want, it is the other person’s problem if they don’t like it. Today we are doing away with harmful ideologies, and I completely support and appreciate the way society is heading in regards to a woman’s image. So these modesty quotes are about humility and understanding that boasting can be harmful to your career, so learning to balance pride with modesty is the way to go in modern times.

I hope you find what you are looking for!
