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.
This is the first test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him.
William Lyon Phelps
My actual life is a fact, in view of which I have no occasion to congratulate myself; but for my faith and aspiration I have respect. It is from these that I speak.
Henry David Thoreau

There are other measures of self-respect for a man, than the number of clean shirts he puts on every day.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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
William Butler Yeats
It is worth the while to live respectably unto ourselves. We can possibly get along with a neighbor, even with a bedfellow, whom we respect but very little; but as soon as it comes to this, that we do not respect ourselves, then we do not get along at all...
Henry David Thoreau
Set your expectations high; find men and women whose integrity and values you respect; get their agreement on a course of action; and give them your ultimate trust.
John Fellows Akers
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
There is overwhelming evidence that the higher the level of self-esteem, the more likely one will be to treat others with respect, kindness, and generosity.

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
