"respect or esteem that has been earned."
Contemplate that for a moment.
It would be very special to earn the respect and esteem

Those who are successful and happy earn their own
self-respect and self-esteem.

upon a definition of the word liberty;
and precisely the same difference
prevails today among us human creatures

your life won't work,
but if you keep tilting at windmills -
madly trying the same thing again and again,
your life also won't work.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
