A Quote by Dalai Lama on dalai lama, discernment, truth, authenticity, and respect

On love, not harming others, and respecting all beings.  Even animals have these elements in their behavioral patterns.  We should start by observing how animals act.  They are honest and appreciate it when we are honest with them.  If you present something nice to an animal in one hand while hiding a rope in the other, the creature will know your intention.  Yet animals have no religion, no constitution.  Basic nature has endowed them with the faculty of discernment.  It is the same for humans.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on politics, death, nature, respect, worldview, interrelated, connections, unconnected, conscience, neglect, patience, and imagination

Only in a thoroughly unrelated world can we poison nature without conscience, neglect our children and the poor, and righteously slay thousands of enemy soldiers because we don't have the patience or imagination for negotiation.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on resentment, envy, respect, and adulation

Miss Taggart, do you know the hallmark of the second - rater?  It's resentment of another man's achievement.  Those touchy mediocrities who sit trembling lest someone's work prove greater than their own -- they have no inkling of the lonliness that comes when you reach the top.  The lonliness for an equal - for a mind to respect and an achievement to admire.  They bare their teeth at you from out of their rat holes, thinking you take pleasure in letting your brilliance dim them - while you'd give a year of your life to see a flicker of talent anywhere among them.  They envy achievement, and their dream of greatness is a world where all men have become their acknowledged inferiors.  They don't know that that dream is infallible proof of mediocrity, because that sort of world is what the man of achievement would not be able to bear.  They have no way of knowing what he feels when surrounded by inferiors - hatred?  No, not hatred, but boredom - the terrible, hopeless, draining, paralyzing boredom.  Of what account are praise and adulation from men whom you don't respect?  Have you ever felt the longing for someone you could admire?  For something, not to look down at, but up to?

A Quote by Sir Crispin Tickell on nature, outside, ourselves, frontiered, foreign, separate, lost, follows, achieve, society, harmony, guided, and respect

As long as Nature is seen as something outside ourselves; frontiered and foreign, separate, it is lost both to us and in us. It follows that to achieve a society in harmony with Nature, we must be guided by respect for it.

A Quote by Gail Purcell Elliott on culture, biosphere, supports life, ethic, individuality, creativity, imagination, inspiration, respect, understanding, awareness, and peace

When it comes to environments in which people live, work, and learn try thinking of creating not a ‘culture' but a
‘biosphere.'   By definition, the biosphere is the part of the earth's crust that supports life.   The concept of a ‘biosphere' has to do with subscribing to an ethic that goes beyond ‘culture.'   It promotes individuality, creativity, imagination, inspiration, respect, understanding, awareness, and above all - peace.

A Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi on respect, organization, suspicion, and hostility

Without respect, the subtle alchemy that binds an organization or that serves as the impetus for a business transaction would dissolve into mutual suspicion and hostility.
