Dignity consists not in possessing honors, but in the consciousness that we deserve them.
Dignity of position adds to dignity of character, as well as to dignity of carriage.—Give us a proud position, and we are impelled to act up to it.
True dignity is never gained by place, and never lost when honors are withdrawn.
Dignity and love do not blend well, nor do they continue long together.
Lord Chatham and Napoleon were as much actors as Garrick or Talma.—An imposing air should always be taken as evidence of imposition.—Dignity is often a veil between us and the real truth of things.
