[ Also see Conscience Depravity Dignity Pride Respect Self ]

Self-respect is, next to religion, the chiefest bridle of all vices.
      - Francis Bacon

The truest self-respect is not to think of self.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Have not too low thoughts of thyself. The confidence a man hath of his being pleasant in his demeanor is a means whereby he infallibly cometh to be such.
      - Robert Burton

In order to preserve your self-respect, it is sometimes necessary to lie and cheat.
      - Robert Byrne

No more important duty can be urged upon those who are entering the great theater of life than simple loyalty to their best convictions.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

All must respect those who respect themselves.
      - Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield

Content to do the best work he could, to preserve his own dignity, and leave the rest to future.
      - Philip Gilbert Hamerton

Be and continue poor, young man, while others around you grow rich by fraud and disloyalty; be without place or power, while others beg their way upwards; bear the pain of disappointed hopes, while others gain theirs by flattery; forego the gracious pressure of the hand, for which others cringe and crawl. Wrap yourself in your own virtue, and seek a friend and your daily bread. If you have, in such a course, grown gray with unblenched honor, bless God and die.
      - Richard Heinzelmann

Self-respect,--the corner-stone of all virtue.
      - Sir John Frederick William Herschel, 1st Baronet Herschel

It may be no less dangerous to claim, on certain occasions, too little than too much. There is something captivating in spirit and intrepidity, to which we often yield as to a resistless power; nor can we often yield as to a resistless power; nor can he reasonably expect the confidence of others who too apparently distrusts himself.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

The pious and just honoring of ourselves may be thought the radical moisture and fountain-head from whence every laudable and worthy enterprise issues forth.
      - John Milton

I care not so much what I am in the opinion of others as what I am in my own; I would be rich of myself and not by borrowing.
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

Never violate the sacredness of your individual self-respect. Be true to your own mind and conscience, your heart and your soul; so only can you be true to God.
      - Theodore Parker

Let us respect gray Lairs, but, above all, our own.
      - Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn

Above all things, reverence yourself.
      - Pythagoras

Let a man use great reverence and manners to himself.
      - Pythagoras

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

Every man stamps his value on himself; the price we challenge for ourselves is given us.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller

Self-respect governs morality: respect for others governs our behavior.
      - Joseph Alexandre Pierre, Vicomte de Segur

I will have a care of being a slave to myself, for it is a perpetual, a shameful, and the heaviest of all servitudes; and this may be done by moderate desires.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

When thou hast profited so much that thou respectest even thyself, thou mayst let go thy tutor.
      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

No man who is occupied in doing a very difficult thing, and doing it very well, ever loses his self-respect.
      - George Bernard Shaw

Who will adhere to him that abandons himself?
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

Self-respect is the noblest garment with which a man may clothe himself,--the most elevating feeling with which the mind can be inspired. One of Pythagoras' wisest maxims, in his Golden Verses, is that in which he enjoins the pupil to "reverence himself."
      - Samuel Smiles

A man can do without his own approbation in much society, but he must make great exertions to gain it when he lives alone.
      - Sydney Smith
