To stand on one's own convictions

Here is the stalwart poll watcher, making sure no hanky-panky is going on at the polls after such a nasty campaign season. Notice how calm he looks, how resigned--or maybe that's just relief that it's finally over.

Of course, he'll have to endure the commentary of various political pundits for the next few weeks as they analyze and re-analyze what "really" happened during today's election. Even so, he knows where he stands--and what he stands for.

The hallmark of courage in our age of conformity is the capacity to stand on one's own convictions.
-- Rollo May
