John R. Wooden
If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.
Henry David Thoreau
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
We were taught to respect everyone, especially those who were older and wiser than we were from whom we could learn.

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 -...

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,...

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. When I was 18, and my grandmother had just died, I needed a place to live. This man, without me having to ask, offered to let 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

Without respect there will be no peace.
