St. Ambrose on Being an Example of Modesty

"Let your moderation be known to all men [Phil. 4:5]. That is to say, your holiness of life must be evident, not only in the sight of God, but also in the sight of men. It must give an example of moderation and self-control to all your contemporaries on earth and serve also as a memorial of goodness before God and men."
