Respect for self and others plays a central role in everything we do in life. Respect is also a great respector of Karma: we get what we give. Respect costs nothing, and every single person we meet qualifies to receive it from us.
The following quotes will testify as to why. Hope you enjoy reading them even as you reflect on their meaning.
- “I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.” ― Albert Einstein
- “Treat everyone you meet as though they are the most important person you’ll meet today.” – Roger Dawson
- “Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too.” – Voltaire
- “Being brilliant is no great feat if you respect nothing.” – Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
