I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.

Albert Einstein


It’s about respect

My father taught me that reputation, not money, was the most important thing in the world.

Give and recieve

Our attitude towards others determines their attitude towards us.

Earl Nightingale


Principles and respect

I’m not too emotional of a guy. People say I have a good heart, but they’re wrong. I have principles. The heart is a fickle thing. There’s no way I can love everybody. So I’m not even going to try. But I can respect everyone whether I love them or not. And that I try to do.


Make choices [picture]

I used to walk into a room full of people and wonder if they liked me…

Now I look around and wonder if I like them.

It is important to make your mind up about who you want to hang around with.

The people closest to you have the greates influence on your character, you should choose them wisely. It is not your job to please everybody, nor is it your job to please random people.

First thing: Please yourself by being yourself. Become comfortable with who you are or form your character untill you are comfortable and content with who you are and what you stand for. Then you can decide wether you like people or not on your own standards.

This is how you should determine who to hang out with and whose words to listen to. Don’t let others dictate your behaviour but make conscious choices and listen only to the word of people you respect and trust for good reasons.

He who tries to please everybody will never succeed and loose his integrity as well as his happiness along the way.



Respect yourself

Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you hbappy.

Robert Tew

It is hard in the first place, but worth the effort and you will enjoy it a lot in the long run.



Never trade respect for attention

You do not always have to be the loudest person, the center of attention.

Feel good being modest. Respect seldom growls out loudly, it is silent appreciation, it is people talking about you when you are not around.
