A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on decisions, dignity, ethics, excellence, pride, respect, self-respect, and vanity

A Quote by June Jordan on facts, feminism, life, love, meaning, respect, self-love, and self-respect

I am a feminist, and what that means to me is much the same as the meaning of the fact that I am Black: it means that I must undertake to love myself and to respect myself as though my very life depends upon self-love and self-respect.

A Quote by Joseph R. Garber on achievement, bitterness, equality, good, happiness, harmony, libraries, police, politics, power, respect, self-respect, speech, superiority, thought, tolerance, truth, and women

I cannot feel good about being a woman unless you feel bad about being a man. I cannot be proud of being black unless you are ashamed of being white. I cannot respect myself for being gay unless you are embarrassed that you are straight. Tolerance has been put by the boards; it is a stale and bitter thing and we will have none of it. Equality, likewise; is condescending at best and in truth intended to demean. If I am to achieve the inner harmony and self-respect that is my due, it will not suffice for you and I to be equals. No! Nothing less than superiority will make me happy. And to ensure that I make my point, I shall commend your libraries to the flames, rewrite your histories, purge your dictionaries, and arm the thought police with power to enforce political correctness in all speech and apprehension.
