"Modestly is not walking around in complete silence, wrapped up in a burlap sack, a big floppy hat, and four layers of sweaters so that no one can see there's a human girl underneath. That's not modesty. That's overkill. And if you grew up in the New Mexican desert like I did, it's practically suicide. St. Teresa of Avila knew this. She once wrote to one of the nuns in her convent: "With regard to the woolen tunic that you desire to wear throughout the summer, it is folly. Do me the favor of leaving it off."

"Modesty is a virtue that I use to remind myself and other people of how valuable and dignified and important and lovely I am. Modesty means showing in my words, thoughts, and actions, and in the way I look and dress, that the most important thing about myself is LOVE. It's not my body. It's not my legs, or my skin, or my hair (thank goodness). The most important thing about me is not even my athletic ability, my intellectual skills, or my ability to speak in public. The most important thing about me is LOVE. "Modesty means avoiding everything that causes people to forget that LOVE is the most important thing about me. It means my helping you to know that the most important about you, is LOVE, too." -- from the booklet, Modestly Yours ...
