Weekend Wisdom

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!



America’s Respect Revolution


It is something that is and has been lacking in this country for a long time.

I do not get respect as a widow.  Most people can not get away from me fast enough.

I did not get it when I was unemployed either.  Putting the unemployed back to work requires people willing to help but most of society treats the unemployed with contempt.  They are nice to your face but once your back is turned, look out here come the knife.  Even your closest friends, family members and fellow church folk will turn on you.

What is the cure or at least part of the cure?

America’s Respect Revolution

My friend Katherine Miracle started a grass-roots campaign America’s Respect Revolution. (Click on the link to be taken to the Facebook page). 

It is…

A campaign to change culture and help Americans respect themselves and respect everyone…everyday. We believe you cannot have success without respect!!!

She is right, you can not achieve success without respecting yourself and others.

This link will take you to their Indiegogo crowd-funding page where you can find out more about America’s Respect Revolution and how you can help fund the documentary Katherine and her team are working on.

I urge you to become part of the revolution.  It is just as important if not more so than the revolution which founded this country.

So click on this link to read more about the campaign and watch the video.

Hopefully you will help America’s Respect Revolution spread like wildfire across the country.

Remember –

“Everyone wants it, not enough people give it, so not enough people receive it.”

Together we can change America so we once again respect ourselves and each other.

Join The Revolution!
