On Self-Respect Quotes (showing 1-3 of 3)
“Character — the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life — is the source from which self-respect springs.”
Joan Didion, On Self-Respect
“Innocence ends when one is stripped of the delusion that one likes oneself.”
Joan Didion, On Self-Respect
“To assign unanswered letters their proper weight, to free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves--there lies the great, the singular power of self-respect. Without it, one eventually discovers the final turn of the screw: one runs away to find oneself, and finds no one at home.”
Joan Didion, On Self-Respect
