How to use boastful in a sentence?

  1. Bible, Paul, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7:

    Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

  3. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I like this insightful Japanese proverb "Nou aru taka wa tsume wo kakusu- meaning a talented Hawk hides her/his talons. In my view, either downplaying or concealing your strengths, not showing off your talents in boastful manner, and being modest in life are always respected - not only in Japan but also anywhere in the world. I have also realized that those who are truly knowledgeable seldom show off, while the empty vessel always makes too much noise. Modesty is surely the great virtue that differentiates you as the "cut above the rest" in the society.

  4. Charles Haddon Spurgeon:

    It will be an ill day when our brethren take to bragging and boasting and call it 'testimony to the victorious Christian life.' We trust that holiness will be more than ever the aim of believers, but not the boastful holiness which has deluded some of the excellent of the earth into vain glory, and under which their firmest friends shudder for them.

  5. Little Rock:

    Civilization culminates in the power-press. It is the grand total of the difference between a boastful United Statian and a beastly Hottentot, —between Yankee Doodle and Timbucktoodle
