In my day, we didn’t have self-esteem, we had self-respect, and no more of it than we had earned.

Jane Haddam

Never violate the sacredness of your individual self-respect.

Theodore Parker

If you want to be respected by others the great thing is to respect yourself.  Only by that, only by self-respect will you compel others to respect you.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Self-respect cannot be hunted.  It cannot be purchased.  It is never for sale.  It cannot be fabricated out of public relations.  It comes to us when we are alone, in quiet moments, in quiet places, when we suddenly realize that, knowing the good, we have done it; knowing the beautiful, we have served it; knowing the truth we have spoken it.

Whitney Griswold
