On Self-respect



   When thou hast profited so much that thou respectest thyself, 
   thou mayest let go thy tutor. 
                                                          Seneca 




   Every one stamps his own value on himself.  Man is made great 
   or little by his own will. 
                                                         Schiller 

    
                       

   Above all things, reverence thyself. 
                                                 Pythagoras 




   Be noble-minded!  Our own heart, and not other men's opinions 
   of us, forms our true honor. 
                                                           Schiller 




   To have a respect for ourselves guides our morals;  and to have 
   a deference for others governs our manners. 
                                                             Sterne 




   Self-respect --- that corner-stone of all virtue. 

                                                  Sir John Herschel 




   No more important duty can be urged upon those who are entering 
   the great theatre of life than simple loyalty to their best 
   convictions. 
                                                    E. H. Chapin 




   The reverence of man's self, is, next to religion, the chiefest 
   bridle of all vices. 
                                                            Bacon 




   Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control, these three alone 
   lead life to sovereign power. 
                                                         Tennyson
