When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you.
We were taught to respect everyone, especially those who were older and wiser than we were from whom we could learn.
William Butler Yeats
To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.
Respect for intellectual excellence, the restoration of vigor and discipline to our ideas of study, curricula which aim at strengthening intellectual fiber and stretching the power of young minds, personal commitment and responsibility—these are the preconditions of educational recovery in America today; and, I believe, they have always been the preconditions of happiness and sanity for the human race.
Adlai E. Stevenson
There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Two Wrongs Don't Make A RightSubmitted by Geri
I have always tried to live by the rule "TWO WRONGS DO NOT MAKE A RIGHT"! If some wrong is done to you, you cannot correct that action with a like reaction. That only feeds the "flame". Live by the golden rule - DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE DONE UNTO YOU. If we were all to show respect to others -...

I would like to tell you about someone who is not a hero because he is a fireman or in the National Guard, or is running a charity. The person I am writing about is an everyday hero.

Good parenting is many things but none greater than giving the gift of a grandparents wisdom and love. if you have been through a broken relationship, do not take it out on the grandparents of your ex-spouse just for spite. You will leave a void in your children's lives they can never get back. Teach your children to respect the elders just as would every other important thing and encourage them to love their grandparents, no matter what side they come from.
I believe that respect should be honored and cherished, not taken for granted.
I'd like to be the kind of person that when people come in contact with me and leave my presence, they feel better, not worse.
Respect is just another way to say I value and care for you.
Respect should be shown to all living things, not just to humans. The non-human animals that this planet are too often overlooked when we talk about respect. What a lonely place this would be if we didn't have them.
you can spend your whole life telling yourself how much you love someone but it's not really love until you give it away!
Respect = (honor + dignity + value + recognition + esteem) - apathy
Respect must be the foundation of all relationships ... ALL
