A Quote by Elizabeth Goudge on birds, civilization, contempt, life, respect, and time

Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life.

A Quote by Eliakim Hastings Moore on existence, principles, respect, and theory

We lay down a fundamental principle of generalization by abstraction: "The existence of analogies between central features of various theories implies the existence of a general theory which underlies the particular theories and unifies them with respect to those central features. . . ."

A Quote by Edward O. Sisson on admiration, character, conceit, danger, desires, idealism, losing, respect, self-esteem, self-respect, vanity, and worth

Self-respect is the very cement of character, without which character will not form nor stand; a personal ideal is the only possible foundation for self-respect, without which self-respect degenerates into vanity or conceit, or is lost entirely, its place being taken by worthlessness and the consciousness of worthlessness; and that is the end of all character. It is often said that if we do not respect ourselves no one else will respect us; this is rather a dangerous way to put it; let us rather say that if we are not worthy of our own respect we cannot claim the respect of others. True self-respect is a matter of being and never of mere seeming. As Paulsen says, "It is vanity that desires first of all to be seen and admired, and then, if possible, really to be something; whereas proper self esteem desires first of all to be something, and' then, if possible, to have its worth recognized."

A Quote by Dr. Paul W. Popenoe on automobiles, cheerfulness, children, day, fatherhood, good, justice, money, praise, respect, and responsibility

How you can prevent it! Set them a good example, keep cheerful, especially father's - let your children know you are pleased with them, (find something to praise them for even if it is only a hug at the end of the day) talk things over with your children, plat with them, respect them, give them responsibility, don't allow children to have too much money to just spend as they want, don't get them a car until they can pay for it and take care of the expenses.

Dr. Paul W. Popenoe
