thoughtful thursday: modesty defined

But modesty is not defined by, or even primarily about, how much of one’s body is covered. It is about comportment and behavior. It is about recognizing that one need not be the center of attention. It is about embodying the prophet Micah’s call for modesty: learning “to walk humbly with your God.” ~Dov Linzer

Beautiful, just beautiful. I found this article in the NYTimes very thought provoking, and loved how he summed up modesty. It's one of the best descriptions I've come across.
