RESERVE
[ Also see Bashfulness Candor Concealment Dignity Distance Evasion Modesty Ostentation Secrecy Silence ]

Reserve may be pride fortified in ice; dignity is worth reposing on truth.
      - William R. Alger

Reserve is the truest expression of respect towards those who are its objects.
      - Thomas De Quincey ("The Opium Eater")

There is nothing more allied to the barbarous and savage character than sullenness, concealment, and reserve.
      - Parke Godwin

Reserve is no more essentially connected with understanding than a church organ with devotion, or wine with good-nature.
      - William Shenstone

There would not be any absolute necessity for reserve if the world were honest; yet even then it would prove expedient. For, in order to attain any degree of deference, it seems necessary that people should imagine you have more accomplishments than you discover.
      - William Shenstone
