Self-Respect

img_7618

“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.”

Alfred Whitney Griswold, 1906-1963
Historian and educator
President of Yale University
