Examples of unassuming in a Sentence

  1. Jim Lee:

  2. Clifford Sloan:

    Stevenswas probably one of the least known justices publicly, and its ironic because he has had as big an impact of the Supreme Court and on American society as any justice, but his niceness and his unassuming manner should not be mistaken for any kind of softness.

  4. Lindsey Graham:

    Here is my understanding, if you lived a good life people would recognize it – like the American Bar Association has the gold standard, his integrity is absolutely unquestioned.

  5. Abraham Lincoln:

    When the conduct of men is designed to be influenced, persuasion, kind unassuming persuasion, should ever be adopted. It is an old and true maxim that 'a drop of honey catches more flies than a gallon of gall.' So with men. If you would win a man to your cause, first convince him that you are his sincere friend. Therein is a drop of honey that catches his heart, which, say what he will, is the great highroad to his reason, and which, once gained, you will find but little trouble in convincing him of the justice of your cause, if indeed that cause is really a good one.
