Respect others; do this by shutting up. 

Respecting — it’s not over-directing. 

Over-respecting ourselves results in under-respecting others. 

Even total respect is no blank check.  

It is by keeping the private, private that we respect the public.

Deep respect lies in the shallows of a good plan. 

Death — it’s the late road to respect.

We tend to respect those above us and inspect those beside us.

Listening is the second highest form of respect; doing what we are told is the first.
