Edmund Burke: Reflections on the Revolution in France.    
  Shame is a painful sensation occasioned by the quick apprehension that reputation and character are in danger, or by the perception that they are lost.
Dr. Thomas Cogan.    
  Where there is shame there may yet be virtue.
Dr. Samuel Johnson.    
  Ingenuous shame and the apprehensions of displeasure are the only true restraints: these alone ought to hold the reins, and keep the child in order.
John Locke.    
  Is there anything that more embitters the enjoyments of this life than shame?
Robert South.    
  Shame contracts the spirits, fixes the ramblings of fancy, and gathers the man into himself.
Robert South.    
  There are two restraints which God hath put upon human nature, shame and fear: shame is the weaker, and hath place only in those in whom there are some remainders of virtue.
John Tillotson.
