UNDERSTANDING THE SIGNIFICANCE OF RESPECT




"Without feelings of respect, what is there to distinguish men from beasts?"


  CONFUCIUS

  JACKIE ROBINSON


"Civilization is a method of living, an attitude of equal respect for all men."


  JANE ADDAMS


"We learned about gratitude and humility - that so many people had a hand in our success, from the teachers who inspired us to the janitors who kept our school clean... and we were taught to value everyone's contribution and treat everyone with respect."


   MICHELLE OBAMA


"To the living we owe respect, but to the dead we owe only the truth."


   VOLTAIRE


"To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater."


   BONO


"Democracy arises out of the notion that those who are equal in any respect are equal in all respects; because men are equally free, they claim to be absolutely equal."


  ARISTOTLE


"Be kind, don't judge, and have respect for others. If we can all do this, the world would be a better place. The point is to teach this to the next generation."


  JASMINE GUINNESS


"Everyone should be respected as an individual, but no one idolized."


  ALBERT EINSTEIN


"Moral authority comes from following universal and timeless principles like honesty, integrity, treating people with respect."


  STEPHEN COVEY


"When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect toward others."


  THE DALAI LAMA


"This world of ours… must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect."


  DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER







"There is no respect for others without humility in one's self. "
