Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for February 11, 1992
Calvin: See, Hobbes, we shouldn't need accomplishments to feel good about ourselves. Self-esteem shouldn't be conditional. That's why I've stopped doing homework. I don't need to learn things to like myself. I'm fine the way I am. Hobbes: So the secret to good self-esteem is to lower your expectations to the point where they're already met? Calvin: Right. We should take pride in our mediocrity. Hobbes: Remind me to invest overseas. Calvin: I think this snowman is good enough, don't you?
