Weekend Wisdom: Respect

Respect goes hand-in-hand with kindness. I have dealt with lots of unkind and disrespectful this month. They’ve been disrespectful during phone conversations, in e-mails and on the internet.

It is because of my experience with disrespectful people that I went searching for respect quotes.

Here are a few of the many, many quotes I found.

Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.

Laurence Sterne

Respect your efforts, respect yourself. Self-respect leads to self-discipline. When you have both firmly under your belt, that’s real power.

Clint Eastwood

Everyone in society should be a role model, not only for their own self-respect, but for respect from others.

Barry Bonds

Now go out and show respect to people today. Imagine the joy you will bring to them and the respect you will get in return.

You want respect?  Give it!
