Respect; such a humble word that holds so much weight and meaning. A single person’s simple deed out of respect can outweigh a nation’s action out of greed. Without respect, humanity will be like a stack of paper scattered by the wind into a chaotic pile, therefore it have the power to uphold order, making a humane society out of humanity. With a little respect to the environment, the earth would be a greener place and with a little more respect for life, so much suffering will be lifted amongst us. Even in times of conflict, with respect nothing can’t be settled in a peaceful manner.
Listed below are interpretations and quotations about respect.
