On self-esteem

…for there are still in you a thousand lovely qualities which your self-esteem alone can preserve, and which too much shame, with the abjection it would cause, would unfailingly destroy, and it is by what you believe you are still worth that you will indeed maintain worthiness.

– Claire to Julie in Rousseau, Julie, ou la Nouvelle Heloise
