    in modesty is strength

    What does this sentence mean:
    1-In modety is strength.

    That strength is in modesty. That that is the only place you can find strength.
    Or that there is strength in modesty. (There might be strength elsewhere also).

    There might be strength elsewhere, but the speaker thinks this is a good source.
