Quotes about respect

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

Laurence Sterne

When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.

Lao Tzu

One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.

Bryant H. McGill

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

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

Several quotes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This post is relevant today especially for many black leaders in our country who incite hatred and divisiveness instead of following wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men.

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, ‘Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!’ 

Means we use must be as pure as the ends we seek.

Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
