William Cowper Quote
True modesty is a discerning grace
And only blushes in the proper place;
But counterfeit is blind, and skulks through fear,
Where 'tis a shame to be asham'd t' appear:
Humility the parent of the first,
The last by vanity produc'd and nurs'd.
Poems: By William Cowper,... In Two Volumes.... (ed. 1790)
