Words for You to Ponder Today


Modesty

  • "Modesty is more than a matter of avoiding revealing attire. It describes not only the altitude of hemlines and necklines but the attitude of our hearts. The word modesty means “measured.” It is related to moderate. It implies 'decency, and propriety … in thought, language, dress, and behavior'."

    —Susan W. Tanner, "The Sanctity of the Body"
