HELP! Need proverb on having pride in yourself!

Posted by Vinitha Nair on April 04, 2001

I am looking for a colorful proverb, saying, or idiom that reflects the same meaning as "to thine own self be true." I was using "a leopard can't change it's spots" but was told the origin of that phrase had a negative connotation, like someone who does evil can't necessarly change. I want a phrase that shows you can be proud of who you are and NOT HAVE TO change.
