Life in Writing
This quote sounds like something you would read in a fortune cookie but that doesn't make it any less true. Dignity is one of those concepts that we often don't think about but is incredibly important. Dignity is defined as a state of being worthy of honor or respect. A state that all of us should strive to be in. Yet there are so many things that can strip us of our dignity. Jealousy, pride, or as Jack so aptly points out here, aggression.
Aggression is a purely selfish emotion and is actually the opposite of dignity. Selfishness has never brought honor or respect to anybody. So next time you're starting to feel a little angry or aggressive, remember the wise words of Samurai Jack and don't sacrifice your dignity for your aggression.
