  Self-respect is the best of all.
Hosea Ballou.

  He who respects others is respected by them.
Mencius.    
  3
  The icy precepts of respect.
Shakespeare.    
  4
  Women seldom forfeit their claims to respect to men whom they respect.
Bovee.    
  5
  To be capable of respect is wellnigh as rare at the present day as to be worthy of it.
Joubert.    
  6
  He who has no pleasure in looking up, is not fit so much as to look down.
Washington Allston.    
  7
  Respect is a serious thing in him who feels it, and the height of honor for him who inspires the feeling.
Mme. Swetchine.

  Some men use no other means to acquire respect than by insisting on it; and it sometimes answers their purpose, as it does a highwayman’s in regard to money.
