The world is a great mirror. It reflects back to you what you are. If you are loving, if you are friendly, if you are helpful, the world will prove loving and friendly and helpful to you. The world is what you are.
Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.
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.
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
Respect for the fragility and importance of an individual life is still the mark of an educated man.
We were taught to respect everyone, especially those who were older and wiser than we were from whom we could learn.
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
Character - the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life - is the source from which self-respect springs.
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.

Live by the golden rule - DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE DONE UNTO YOU. If we were all to show respect to others -...

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
