Self-respect is the most important aspect of human life. Never lose it and never allow anyone to violate its sacredness. If anyone treats you as an option, narrow her/his choices by removing yourself out of her/his equation, because being there is simply not worth it.
– Deodatta V. Shenai-KhatkhateRate it:
Self-respect is the solid foundation of your self, your existance, and how you're perceived by the world.

Respect yourself first, and treat your fellow humans and animals with the same respect, and the world will begin to respect you, before you realize it.

– George Bernard ShawRate it:
Self-sacrifice is an obvious proof of true love and true leadership i.e. giving up one’s own life, interests or comfort just to help others or to advance a cause. Now, that is exactly what Jesus Christ gave up for us on the cross of Calvary (over 2,000 years ago). Yes! he (Jesus Christ) gave up his own precious life, well-being, comfort and interest so that humanity can be saved through his one and only sacrifice. Nevertheless, what have you given up for him (Jesus Christ) in return? Anyway, I guess that's worth thinking about (individually), isn't it? ~Emeasoba George
