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
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.
That which we persist in doing becomes easier, not that the task itself has become easier, but that our ability to perform it has improved.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
This is the first test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him.

Standing Up For His FaithSubmitted by Dani Dorian
I was seventeen at the time and my grandma had just passed. It was one of the saddest things I've had to deal with.

No Bullying!Submitted by Alexys
As bullying gets worse and worse, I've come to realize how bad it actually is. Every time I see someone at school in the halls (popular-unpopular) getting bullied it just enrages me. There is one specific kid I can't stand to see bullied. He is an autistic kid named Caleb and is in my homeroom class. I have gone...

Jorge MSubmitted by
My hero is my husband, Jorge. I met Jorge when I was at a very difficult point in my life. I had just graduated high school and I didn’t know whether I was coming or going half of the time.

He is my one and only, my significant other, my hero. He was born and raised in a gang environment and chose not to join; he was told he would never make a good Marine, and he enlisted; he was told he would never walk again, after being severely wounded in Fallujah, Iraq, and today he walks without canes,...

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
