And since shame is an impression about dishonor, and
that for its own sake and not for its results; and since no one heeds the
opinion of others except on account of those who hold it, it follows that men
feel shame before those whom they esteem.
Aristotle in 23 Volumes, Vol. 22, translated by J. H. Freese. Aristotle. Cambridge and London. Harvard University Press; William Heinemann Ltd. 1926.
