"One thought more, I wish you all to lay to heart, practicing yourselves and teach it to your children. It is this: neither we nor any other people will ever be respected until we respect ourselves, and we will never respect ourselves until we have the means to live respectably. An exceptionally poor and dependent people will be despised by the opulent surroundings, and despise themselves."
