A Quote by Baltasar Gracian on virtue, self-respect, integrity, and judgment

Never lose your self-respect, nor be too familiar with yourself when you are alone. Let your integrity itself be your own standard of rectitude, and be more indebted to the severity of your own judgment of yourself than to all external percepts. Desist from unseemly conduct, rather out of respect for your own virtue than for the strictures of external authority.

Baltasar Gracian (1601 - 1658)
