The Great Power

Joan Didion quote

“To free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves – there lies the great, singular power of self-respect.”

“Self-respect is a question of recognizing that anything worth having has a price.”

“Character — the willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life — is the source from which self-respect springs.”
