is his refusal to do or say anything
that would damage his self-respect."

    I guess that would be subjective BUT, I like it a lot. There are those cases where an individual's lack of integrity is that which supports self-respect - Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin, Hitlery and Slick Willy for example. In the truest sense of morality though, very accurate.

    Some having No Self Respect exalt folly. " Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom: But, a man of understanding walketh uprightly." Proverbs 15:21

    By any measure, an uncertain, unreliable, measure.

    The nature of fallen human nature is such that the nominal self respect of many is rooted in that which is, objectively, wholly less than respectable.

    Many exhibit qualities of integrity in their venality, regrettably.
     -- Patrick Henry, Red Hill

    Always tell the truth, give without reward, help those in need, and above all, NEVER take what is not yours... That's integrity..
