9 Respect Quotes from Literature

"I care for myself. The more solitary, the more friendless, the more unsustained I am, the more I will respect myself. " ~ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte His socks compelled one's attention without losing one's respect. ~ The Chronicles of Clovis by Saki "I would not send a poor girl into the world, unarmed against her foes, and ignorant of the snares that beset her path; nor would I watch and guard her, till, deprived of self-respect and self-reliance, she lost the power or the will to watch and guard herself." ~ The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte "The more things a man is ashamed of, the more respectable he is." ~ Man And Superman by George Bernard Shaw "My meaning is, that no man can expect his children to respect what he degrades." ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens He was obeyed, yet he inspired neither love nor fear, nor even respect. He inspired uneasiness. That was it! ~ Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad "A startled or surprised look from one of you when I spoke sharply rebuked me more than any words could have done, and the love, respect, and confidence of my children was the sweetest reward I could receive for my efforts to be the woman I would have them copy." ~ Little Women by Louisa May Alcott "Money is a needful and precious thing, and when well used, a noble thing, but I never want you to think it is the first or only prize to strive for. I'd rather see you poor men's wives, if you were happy, beloved, contented, than queens on thrones, without self-respect and peace." ~ Little Women by Louisa May Alcott "If you could say, with truth, to your own solitary heart, to-night, 'I have secured to myself the love and attachment, the gratitude or respect, of no human creature; I have won myself a tender place in no regard; I have done nothing good or serviceable to be remembered by!' your seventy-eight years would be seventy-eight heavy curses; would they not?" ~ A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
