Self-Respect Quotes


It’s funny how one’s own self-respect can so easily be taken away by another through their words and actions. As Antoine de Saint-Exupery once said in one of the more profound self-respect quotes, “I have no right, by anything I do or say, to demean a human being in his own eyes. What matters is not what I think of him; it is what he thinks of himself. To undermine a man's self-respect is a sin.” Self-respect quotes demonstrate that indeed, it’s what we think of ourselves, not what others think of us that matters. While many of the measures of our self-respect are outwardly turned, self-respect is a gift we give ourselves, and as such, it should never be taken away easily by anyone else.

inspirational    Quote of the Day    Self-respect   

.

"Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself - no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are - completely; the good and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think someone else wants you to be different." Stacey Charter

Self-respect   

.

"There comes a time when you have to stand up and shout:This is me damn it! I look the way I look, think the way I think, feel the way I feel, love the way I love! I am a whole complex package. Take me... or leave me. Accept me - or walk away! Do not try to make me feel like less of a person, just because I don't fit your idea of who I should be and don't try to change me to fit your mold. If I need to change, I alone will make that decision.When you are strong enough to love yourself 100%, good and bad - you will be amazed at the opportunities that life presents you." Stacey Charter

Confidence    Self-respect   

R. Ambedkar

"My religious conversion is not inspired by any material motive. This is hardly anything I cannot achieve even while remaining an Untouchable. There is no other feeling than that of a spiritual feeling underlying my religious conversion. Hinduism does not appeal to my conscience. My self-respect cannot assimilate Hinduism. In your case change of religion is imperative for worldly as well as spiritual ends. Do not care for the opinion of those who foolishly ridicule the idea of conversion for material ends. Why should you live under the fold of that religion which has deprived you of honor, money, food and shelter?" R. Ambedkar
