The 5 All-Time Greatest Quotes About RespectThroughout April 2011, we’ll be working on the concept of “respect” as part of our Powerful Words character development curriculum.

All our discussions and activities will aim to help our students understand what it means to show care, consideration, concern and courtesy for others.

To inspire your own discussions at home, here are seven of our all-time favorite quotes about respect:

“Karate begins and ends with respect.”
~Anko Itosu

“Knowledge will give you power, but character respect.”
~Bruce Lee

“When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.”

“Men are respectable only as they respect.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

“If one doesn’t respect oneself one can have neither love nor respect for others.”
~Ayn Rand

“Leaders who win the respect of others are the ones who deliver more than they promise, not the ones who promise more than they can deliver.”
~Mark Clement

“He removes the greatest ornament of friendship, who takes away from it respect.”
