RESPECT QUOTATIONS
“Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves.”

U Thant

“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.”

Nelson Mandela

“In recognizing the humanity of our fellow beings, we pay ourselves the highest tribute.”

Thurgood Marshall

“The capacity for getting along with our neighbor depends to a large extent on the capacity for getting along with ourselves. The self-respecting individual will try to be as tolerant of his neighbor's shortcomings as he is of his own.”

Eric Hoffer

“Respect is one of the greatest expressions of love.”

Don Miguel Ruiz

“Treat people the way you want to be treated. Talk to people the way you want to be talked to. Respect is earned, not given.”

King Hussein Nishah

“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

“Respect is love in action.”

Bangambiki Habyarimana

Respect is important for all people to show and give.

Pre'Ha from Brunswick,Georgia AUGUST 25, 2015
Respect something we need into our country to make this world seem better and healthier.

Rachelle Perez Pascual from Balian, Pangil, Laguna, Philippines JULY 7, 2014
thanks for the infos. Respect is very important indeed! :)

Exactly Mary and ILima!

Paula from Montana DECEMBER 27, 2013
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.

Toni from Ohio DECEMBER 24, 2013
I believe that respect should be honored and cherished, not taken for granted.

Jamie from Maui OCTOBER 18, 2013
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.

lLima from Trinidad JULY 8, 2013
Respect is just another way to say I value and care for you.

Mary from Utah JUNE 17, 2013
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.

john from honold MAY 8, 2013
you can spend your whole life telling yourself how much you love someone but it's not really love until you give it away!

LCD from California MARCH 21, 2013
Respect = (honor + dignity + value + recognition + esteem) - apathy

Terri North from Home MARCH 7, 2013
Respect must be the foundation of all relationships ... ALL

Katlego from You have to respect your self FEBRUARY 8, 2013

Macy from Reedley,CA NOVEMBER 13, 2012
Without respect there would be conflict everywhere, its the reason we get along with each other.

Robert Stewart from Bethel, Alaska  NOVEMBER 8, 2012
Without respect there will be no peace.

Respect is a part of everything that we do. As long as we can say "Well done" or "Keep going", we will all succeed.

carmen from somewhere texas OCTOBER 21, 2012
Respect is your #1 priority.

kelsey mcbride from swansboro nc JULY 7, 2012
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.

Anderson from Colatina-ES, Brasil MAY 10, 2012
Moro em um país até agora muito bom, mas a corrupção é a raiz da falta de respeito generalizada, mas espero por um futuro melhor. I live in a country so far very good, but corruption is the root of the widespread lack of respect, but I hope for a better future.

Bruce Willingham from Warner Robins Ga APRIL 12, 2012
Respect is to treat a person as valuable even if you disagree with them.

D Zerger from Moundridge, KS MARCH 12, 2012
Maybe we can nurture respect in our kids so they can be an example of maturity to some adults?

Holly S from Bay City MARCH 7, 2012
Passive < Voice < Respect

Allison Cox from Hamilton, Ohio MARCH 2, 2012
understand and never stop listening. eyes on them and ears always open. that's what respect is. respect your teachers, preachers, and parents, and always friends.

Jorge S. from Canada JANUARY 9, 2012
Hello. First of all, my best wishes to you all. I wholly support your intent. Thank you for making a difference. You have undertaken a most noble cause. Continued success to you all for helping to re-connect us to the source of what we all can be and do, for the good of us all. May whichever version of God (and they are all one) you worship bless you.

Shara from Provo NOVEMBER 5, 2011
My oldest daughter and I were in your bus television spot several years ago. We were quite excited in fact to become a part of what I believe to be one of the greatest ideas to pass on to future generations what is needed, in order to continue to be our best and do our best! I thank God for everyone involved taking part in this wonderful idea of teaching values and spreading them in such positive ways! Please continue on your good works! Thank you for allowing me to share!

Linda W from Sarasota, Florida APRIL 2, 2011
Respect is a quality that must be carefully nurtured in relation to oneself and to others. Every individual has the capacity to treat oneself and all those in his/her environment with kindness and dignity. The world would be a better place if all humans valued respect and lived that way in their daily lives.

Regina from Maryland MARCH 22, 2011
Respect is being understanding and kind to others who are like you, or the opposite of you. I always like to say no amount of money can buy you respect, but kindness surely can.

Ed W, Jr. from Jonseboro, Tennessee NOVEMBER 7, 2010
Ifa a day of your life passes and you don't learn something, you lost that day!

Kristel . ATENCIO from PHILIPPINES OCTOBER 10, 2010
Respect yourself after others.
