Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher.
The man is a success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.
Bessie Stanley quotes
It is not desirable to cultivate a respect for law, so much as a respect for right.
Henry David Thoreau quotes
This is the first test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him.
William Makepeace Thackeray quotes
Respect for the fragility and importance of an individual life is still the mark of an educated man.
Norman Cousins quotes
Yet have thou respect unto the prayer of thy servant, and to his supplication, O LORD my God, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which thy servant prayeth before thee to day. (1 Kings 8:28)
The Bible quotes
If we were all determined to play the first violin we should never have an ensemble. Therefore, respect every musician in his proper place.
Robert A. Schumann quotes
Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves.
Ulysses S. Grant quotes
Respect your fellow human being, treat them fairly, disagree with them honestly, enjoy their friendship, explore your thoughts about one another candidly, work together for a common goal and help one another achieve it.
Bill Bradley quotes
We must respect the other fellow's religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.
John Gay quotes
