Shyness Quotes

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

Shyness is just egotism out of its depth. Penelope Keith

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

The way you overcome shyness is to become so wrapped up in something that you forget to be afraid. Lady Bird Johnson
