Delphic Maxim of the Week 4/10
Respect Yourself | Σεαυτὸν αἰδοῦ
This week’s Delphic Maxim is “Respect Yourself”, Greek- Σεαυτὸν αἰδοῦ.
“A man who does not respect himself can not expect others to respect him, and you can not trust him. It would be like building a house on quicksand. Therefore you must learn first and foremost to cultivate self-respect. It means not to fall to depraved and evil ways, not slander people, to stick to the virtues of the noble and the wise. You do these things out of self-respect. But it also means you do not allow others to treat your without respect.”
