Self Confidence

“Self-confidence is inseparable from submission to the creedal order, and through that order, to the supreme authority expressed in that order. … Deep individualism cannot exist except in relation to the highest authority. No inner discipline can operate without a charismatic institution, nor can such an institution survive without that supreme authority from a relation to whom self-confidence derives. Without an authority deeply installed, there is no foundation for individuality. Self-confidence thus expresses submission to supreme authority.” – Philip Rieff
