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
We were taught to respect everyone, especially those who were older and wiser than we were from whom we could learn.
Look at what you've got and make the best of it. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
Evelyn Beatrice Hall
A little less hypocrisy and a little more tolerance towards oneself can only have good results in respect for our neighbor; for we are all too prone to transfer to our fellows the injustice and violence we inflict upon our own natures.
Carl Gustav Jung
The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life.
Richard David Bach
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.

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.

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
