This is a conversation from the novel Love finds the way by Barbara Cartland.

"And that is something that you cannot make me unsay by any argument.”
“I don’t want you to unsay it,” she told him at last. “You have told me that you will always be true to the highest in yourself and that is all I ask.”

Would you like to give me the meaning of "be true to the highest in yourself" in this case? Thanks.

    Hullo Duc. Very loosely: "You will always be the [morally] best person you can possibly be" / "You will always be as [morally] good as you can possibly be."
