It is not our purpose to become each other; it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is: each the other's opposite and complement.

A Quote by Confucius on generosity, trust, respect, tolerance, leadership, and responsbility

If a man is respectful he will not be treated with insolence. If he is tolerant he will win the multitude. If he is trustworthy in his word his fellow man will entrust him with responsibility. If he is quick he will achieve results. if he is generous he will be good enough to be put in a position over his fellow men.

A Quote by Pema Chodron on lovingkindness, self, brilliance, life, respect, and buddhism

Learning how to be kind to ourselves, learning how to respect ourselves, is important. The reason it's important is that, fundamentally, when we look into our own hearts and begin to discover what is confused and what is brilliant, what is bitter and what is sweet, it isn't just ourselves that we're discovering. We're discovering the universe.

A Quote by Octave Mirbeau on obligation, respect, institutions, fashion, convention, moral, social, foundation, contradiction, formality, conflict, intolerable, poisoned, wound, powers, and personality

You're obliged to pretend respect for people and institutions you think absurd.  You live attached in a cowardly fashion to moral and social conventions you despise, condemn, and know lack all foundation.  It is that permanent contradiction between your ideas and desires and all the dead formalities and vain pretenses of your civilization which makes you sad, troubled and unbalanced.  In that intolerable conflict you lose all joy of life and all feeling of personality, because at every moment they suppress and restrain and check the free play of your powers.  That's the poisoned and mortal wound of the civilized world.

A Quote by Adolf Hitler on faith, knowledge, love, change, respect, hate, aversion, impetus, upheaval, earth, fanaticism, and hysteria

Faith is harder to shake than knowledge, love succumbs less to change than respect, hate is more enduring than aversion, and the impetus to the mightiest upheavals on this earth has at all times consisted less in a scientific knowledge dominating the masses than in a fanaticism which inspired them and sometimes in a hysteria which drove them forward.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on hug, correction, children, teacher, education, modesty, and respect

Of course you will insist on modesty in the children, and respect to their teachers, but if the boy stops you in your speech, cries out that you are wrong and sets you right, hug him!

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on children, nature, parents, respect, and solitude

Respect the child.  Wait and see the new product of Nature.  Nature loves analogies, but not repetitions.  Respect the child.  Be not too much his parent.  Trespass not on his solitude.

A Quote by Shinjo Ito on buddhism, valuing, harmony, unity, respect, embrace, denounce, and true buddhism

The spirit of Buddhism is, more than anything, about valuing harmony and unity, in which others are respected and embraced rather than denounced. This has been the way of Buddhism since the beginning, and this is true Buddhism.
