9 Shyness Quotes from Literature

Even the shyest of men can sometimes be quite audacious in moonlight. ~ Rainbow Valley by Lucy Maud Montgomery "There are many men in London, you know, who, some from shyness, some from misanthropy, have no wish for the company of their fellows. Yet they are not averse to comfortable chairs and the latest periodicals. It is for the convenience of these that the Diogenes Club was started, and it now contains the most unsociable and unclubable men in town. No member is permitted to take the least notice of any other one. Save in the Stranger's Room, no talking is, under any circumstances, allowed, and three offences, if brought to the notice of the committee, render the talker liable to expulsion." ~ The Greek Interpreter by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle There is safety in reserve, but no attraction. One cannot love a reserved person. ~ Emma by Jane Austen There is safety in reserve, but no attraction. One cannot love a reserved person. ~ Emma by Jane Austen "Silence and reserve will give anyone a reputation for wisdom." ~ Old Rose and Silver by Myrtle Reed My dear old doll! I was such a shy little thing that I seldom dared to open my lips, and never dared to open my heart, to anybody else. ~ Bleak House by Charles Dickens Such young men are often awkward, ungainly, and not yet formed in their gait; they straggle with their limbs, and are shy; words do not come to them with ease, when words are required, among any but their accustomed associates. Social meetings are periods of penance to them, and any appearance in public will unnerve them. They go much about alone, and blush when women speak to them. In truth, they are not as yet men, whatever the number may be of their years; and, as they are no longer boys, the world has found for them the ungraceful name of hobbledehoy. ~ The Small House at Allington by Anthony Trollope I have no one to whom I can talk upon such matters. I am all driven inwards, and thought turns sour when one lets it stagnate like that. ~ The Stark Munro Letters by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle There are many Beths in the world, shy and quiet, sitting in corners till needed, and living for others so cheerfully that no one sees the sacrifices till the little cricket on the hearth stops chirping, and the sweet, sunshiny presence vanishes, leaving silence and shadow behind. ~ Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
