Well, come, my Kate; we will unto your father's,
  Even in these honest mean habiliments.
    Our purses shall be proud, our garments poor,
      For 'tis the mind that makes the body rich;
        And as the sun breaks through the darkest clouds
          So honor peereth in the meanest habit.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Taming of the Shrew
         (Petruchio at IV, iii)

Dignity is often a veil between us and the real truth of things.

Lord Chatham and Napoleon were ns much actors as Garrick or Talma. Now, an imposing air should always be taken as evidence of imposition. Dignity is often a veil between us and the real truth of things.
      - Edwin Percy Whipple

True dignity abides with him alone
  Who, in the silent hour of inward thought,
    Can still suspect, and still revere himself,
      In lowliness of heart.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Lines left upon a Seat in a Yew-Tree

Revere thyself, and yet thyself despise.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts (VI, 128)
