Give and receive respect

White Hat Awareness Quote: Day 29

“To give and receive RESPECT is the highest honor there is”

30 days of life lesson quotes. Respect it appears is nothing but good! I could not find a single negative definition or reference to the word that was not full of positive attributes. When you have courage you earn the respect of others. When you keep your promises you gain respect. When you make hard choices and do the right things, you can hold your head high and have respect for yourself.

If you hold someone or something in high regard and appreciate its value, people will respect it. Lose that respect and people are likely to treat it, or you, with total disregard. But it goes even further. We should honor our environment and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us every day. We need to be more supportive and courteous to those less fortunate, and we need to be respectful and appreciative of the possessions we are privileged to own.  

To me respect is very simple. Honor and appreciate the things you value.
