Saving self-respect

"For man in the troubled company of other men and things that disturb, in ways big or small, his self-respect, there are but two solutions. One, to avoid, altogether, the company of such men and things; or Two, pretend, with a total detachment of an untainted soul, to be just another man in the thick of such men and things, and pretend to convince himself that self-respect is over-rated. Any middle way is sure to cause harm, as it does to most men."
