Could you eat respect, if you were hungry? Would respect keep you warm at night when you were freezing? If a sword were held to your throat, could respect block it?
When the laughter of your enemies filled your ears, could the respect of a single man let you ignore it? Did it really matter so much, to have someone see you as you truly were and to still decide you were worth something?
…yes. It seemed that it did.
(in which Meng Yao, who'd never met a single moral in his life, decides nevertheless to be a good person)
