Respect quotes remind us to be grateful of those whom we admire. We admire the people who we consider worthy because of their good qualities. These people are impressive for many reasons. They can be in a position of authority like a cop, or a teacher, or an older person. One should always honor the people who have valuable qualities. Holding such people in high esteem is the way to show your gratitude towards the services they provided for other people. It is also a famous saying that to have respect one must give it first. We cannot expect others to respect our wishes and rights when we neglect their rights and wishes. Respect is a mutual thing. It is a two way road in which all parties must participate equally.
