Self-respect cannot be hunted. It cannot be purchased. It is never for sale. It cannot be fabricated out of public relations. It comes 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

“If you don’t have respect for yourself, you’re not gonna get it from anyone else.”-

Joe Clark

“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination are omnipotent.”– Calvin Coolidge
