“There is a form of eminence which does not depend on fate; it is an air which sets us apart and seems to portend great things; it is the value which we unconsciously attach to ourselves; it is the quality which wins us deference of others; more than birth, position, or ability, it gives us ascendancy.”

in François de La Rochefoucauld, Self-Worth, Writers

-François de La Rochefoucauld
