I look at this quote and laugh! I think this is a great way of viewing shyness. I consider myself to be shy, my friends on the other hand would say I am the weirdest person you will ever meet. I like this quote because I feel this is how it really is. Most people are shy because they don't know how to talk or act in front of people without being judged. When i am finally comfortable around someone I am awesome. Make friends with the shy kid odds are they are pretty awesome.
