I have often wondered how it is everyone loves himself more than the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinions of himself than the opinions of others.
Let a man then know his worth, and keep things under his feet. Let him not peep or steal, or skulk up and down with the air of a charity-boy, a bastard, or an interloper.

Whatever your job, it is important if it is what God wants you to do.
Study to be what you wish to seem.
Never violate the sacredness of your individual self-respect.
We feel good about ourselves to the exact degree we feel in control of our lives.
Never say anything about yourself you do not want to come true.

An individual's self-concept is the core of his personality. It affects every aspect of human behavior: the ability to learn, the capacity to grow and change . . . . A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success in life.
Nothing profits more than self-esteem, grounded on what is just and right.
Don't compromise yourself. You are all you've got.
I have just about all I can take of myself.
