We talk about ourselves in ways
which could be said to brag,
and yet polite receptance,
is most that will be had.
But sometimes it is icy,
and then we surely know,
that boastfulness is rudeness;
our words in ego grown. 

Brag; verb: Say in a boastful manner; noun: A boastful statement; an act of talking boastfully; adjective: Excellent, first-rate (informal).
