For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Respect for the fragility and importance of an individual life is still the mark of an educated man.
Tolerance implies a respect for another person, not because he is wrong or even because he is right, but because he is human.
John Cogley Commonweal
That you may retain your self-respect, it is better to displease the people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong.

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

Respect is your #1 priority.
carmen, somewhere texas
Respecting yourself is a main thing in life. So your family, friends, and animals know who you are. Don't give up on that respect, keep it going, but mainly don't lose faith on your respect of others. Life is worth living, so why not live it.
