respect

A Quote by Richard David Bach on admiration, chance, hell, ideas, learning, love, respect, thought, time, and women

"Do you know what I learned from you? I learned what is possible, and now I must hold out for what I thought we had. I want to be very close to someone I respect and admire and have somebody who feels the same way about me. That or nothing. I realized that what I'm looking for is not what you're looking for. You don't want what I want."

"What do you think I want?" I asked.

"Exactly what you have. Many women you know a little and don't care very much about. Superficial flirtations, mutual use, no chance of love. That's my idea of hell. Hell is a place, a time, a consciousness, Richard, in which there is no love. Horrible! Leave me out of it."

Richard Bach (1936 -)

A Quote by Richard David Bach on independence, loneliness, love, privacy, and respect

Respect for sovereignity, for privacy, for total independence. Gentle alliances against loneliness, they were, cool rational love-affairs without the love.

A Quote by René Descartes on desires, good, and respect

Of all things, good sense is the most fairly distributed: everyone thinks he is so well supplied with it that even those who are the hardest to satisfy in every other respect never desire more of it than they already have.

A Quote by R.C. Samsel on character, justice, reputation, respect, and weakness

Character is the foundation stone upon which one must build to win respect. Just as no worthy building can be erected on a weak foundation, so no lasting reputation worthy of respect can be built on a weak character.

A Quote by Rebecca Hall on animals, communication, compassion, emotion, equality, and respect

We cannot talk with [animals] as we can with human beings, yet we can communicate with them on mental and emotional levels. They should, however, be accorded equality in that they should receive both compassion and respect; it is unworthy of us to exploit them in any way.

Rebecca Hall (1947 -)

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on affection, appreciation, beauty, betrayal, children, enthusiasm, friendship, garden, health, honesty, intelligence, laughter, life, people, respect, and world

To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the approbation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To give of one's self; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - This is to have succeeded.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on appreciation, beauty, children, earth, failure, intelligence, laughter, life, love, people, poetry, respect, soul, success, and world

Those are a success who have lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who have gained the respect of intelligent people and the love of children, who have filled their niche and accomplished their task, who leave the world better than they found it, whether by a perfect poem or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of the earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best they had.
