    Bob told Maria her new dress

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    Bob told Maria her new dress made her look smaller, but she caught a hint of insincerity in his voice.

    By 'smaller' did you mean 'slimmer'?
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    Yes.
    Should I have written "slimmer" instead?

    It would make more sense.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”
