I have tremendous respect for each and every one of you. Not for you greatness or wisdom or talent, but for the very person you are. I respect everyone totally, so I can never lose respect for anybody, however they may be. Someone does not need to be great in order to be respected. Respecting life makes you great. Do not look for respect from others – that makes you weak. Have respect for the self and no one can take away your self respect.
~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
