You should respect each other and refrain from disputes; you should not, like water and oil, repel each other, but should, like milk and water, mingle together.
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.
We were taught to respect everyone, especially those who were older and wiser than we were from whom we could learn.
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.
Adlai E. Stevenson
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
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.

Personal Stories About ‘Respect’
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. There is one specific kid I can't stand to see bullied. He is an autistic kid named Caleb and is in my homeroom class. I have gone...
Funeral ProcessionSubmitted by Anonymous
My grandmother taught me several things before she passed away and many of them have stayed with me to this day. One of the things that she taught me was that when a funeral procession is going by, that you should pull over to the side of the road and let the grieving pass. As I was driving down a road one...
Two Wrongs Don't Make A RightSubmitted by Geri

Live by the golden rule - DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE DONE UNTO YOU. If we were all to show respect to others -...
Stories About Everyday Heroes Who Portray ‘Respect’
Jorge MSubmitted by
My hero is my husband, Jorge. I met Jorge when I was at a very difficult point in my life. I had just graduated high school and I didn’t know whether I was coming or going half of the time. I was all about the party and not at all about responsibility. Before meeting Jorge, I never thought it was possible for...

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...
My hero is my father. He cares, loves, and even respects me. At times, he asks my views. He controls any situation easily with practical solutions and works hard for us. He gives us advice at the right time in right manner with utmost care.

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
