A Quote by Dr. Samuel Johnson on acquaintance, generosity, love, men, people, and respect

I love the acquaintance of young people, because, in the first place, I don't like to think myself growing old. In the next place, young acquaintances must last longest, if they do last; and then young men have more generous sentiments in every respect.

A Quote by Samuel Butler on existence, god, past, and respect

It has been said that though God cannot alter the past, historians can; it is perhaps because they can be useful to Him in this respect that He tolerates their existence.

A Quote by Salvador Dali on good, love, order, respect, society, talent, and youth

In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.

A Quote by Rush H. Limbaugh III on children, facts, freedom, history, honor, individuality, pride, prosperity, respect, responsibility, schools, truth, and world

Regarding Ronald Reagan: In point of fact, the image of Ronald Reagan, the man responsible for shaping that decade (the 1980s), should be carved into Mount Rushmore, minted into coins, and emblazoned in a place of honor in every school child's history text as a constant reminder of this great man's contributions to world freedom, national pride, and individual prosperity. With the truth, the term 'Reaganomics' will be used only as a term of endearment and respect.

A Quote by Roger Bacon on body, excellence, mathematics, men, purity, remedies, respect, tennis, understanding, and wit

In the mathematics I can report no deficience, except that it be that men do not sufficiently understand the excellent use of the pure mathematics, in that they do remedy and cure many defects in the wit and faculties intellectual. For if the wit be too dull, they sharpen it; if too wandering, they fix it; if too inherent in the sense, they abstract it. So that as tennis is a game of no use in itself, but of great use in respect it maketh a quick eye and a body ready to put itself into all postures; so in the mathematics, that use which is collateral and intervenient is no less worthy than that which is principal and intended.

A Quote by Roger L. Welsch on agreement, behavior, culture, negotiation, perception, respect, restaurants, rules, sex, television, trust, violence, and women

In some cultures, the sight of a woman's nose and mouth are considered irresistibly seductive. In others, the soles of a person's feet are perceived as disgusting beyond comprehension. In mainstream American culture, sex is obscene but violence is television fare for preschoolers. What is acceptable in swimwear is unacceptable in a restaurant. In an elevator we condone contact that would otherwise be actionable incriminal court. Rules of behavior are not absolute; we negotiate them constantly. . . . Immodesty, indecency, obscenity are cultural factors, mutually agreed upon and negotiable. We are enjoined to "cover our nakedness," but there's considerable disagreement about what our nakedness is. Our noses and mouths? The bottoms of our feet? A lack of trust or mutual respect?

A Quote by Robert Schumann on determination, musicians, play, and respect

If we were all determined to play the first violin we should never have an ensemble. Therefore, respect every musician in his proper place.

A Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson on impossibility, love, posterity, respect, and spirit

It is not likely that posterity will fall in love with us, but not impossible that it may respect or sympathize; so a man would rather leave behind him the portrait of his spirit than a portrait of his face.

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 - 1894)
