respectability

Respectability quotes
Respectability
Eminence without merit earns deference without esteem.

- Chamfort, Sebastien-Roch Nicolas De
Nothing is more despicable than respect based on fear.

- Camus, Albert
The seven deadly sins... food, clothing, firing, rent, taxes, respectability and children. Nothing can lift those seven millstones from Man's neck but money; and the spirit cannot soar until the millstones are lifted.

- Shaw, George Bernard
Respect commands itself and it can neither be given nor withheld when it is due.

- Cleaver, Eldridge
A mere literary man is a dull man; a man who is solely a man of business is a selfish man; but when literature and commerce are united, they make a respectable man.

- Johnson, Samuel
The inquiry in England is not whether a man has talents and genius, but whether he is passive and polite and a virtuous ass and obedient to noblemen's opinions in art and science. If he is, he is a good man. If not, he must be starved.

- Blake, William
INCOME, n. The natural and rational gauge and measure of respectability, the commonly accepted standards being artificial, arbitrary and fallacious; for, as "Sir Sycophas Chrysolater" in the play has justly remarked, "the true use and function of property (in whatsoever it consisteth -- coins, or land, or houses, or merchant- stuff, or anything which may be named as holden of right to one's own subservience) as also of honors, titles, preferments and place, and all favor and acquaintance of persons of quality or ableness, are but to get money. Hence it followeth that all things are truly to be rated as of worth in measure of their serviceableness to that end; and their possessors should take rank in agreement thereto, neither the lord of an unproducing manor, howsoever broad and ancient, nor he who bears an unremunerate dignity, nor yet the pauper favorite of a king, being esteemed of level excellency with him whose riches are of daily accretion; and hardly should they whose wealth is barren claim and rightly take more honor than the poor and unworthy."

- Ambrose Bierce
We owe respect to the living. To the dead we owe only truth.

- Voltaire
One of the surprising things in this world is the respect a worthless man has for himself.

- Howe, Edgar Watson
It seems to me that the god that is commonly worshipped in civilized countries is not at all divine, though he bears a divine name, but is the overwhelming authority and respectability of mankind combined. Men reverence one another, not yet God.

- Thoreau, Henry David
I believe in human beings, and that all human beings should be respected as such, regardless of their color.

- Malcolm X
Without feelings of respect, what is there to distinguish men from beasts?

- Confucius
A celebrated people lose dignity upon a closer view.

- Bonaparte, Napoleon
Respect for ones parents is the highest duty of civil life.

- Proverb, Chinese
Your home is regarded as a model home, your life as a model life. But all this splendor, and you along with it... it's just as though it were built upon a shifting quagmire. A moment may come, a word can be spoken, and both you and all this splendor will collapse.

- Ibsen, Henrik
The myths have always condemned those who looked back. Condemned them, whatever the paradise may have been which they were leaving. Hence this shadow over each departure from your decision.

- Hammarskjold, Dag
If you have some respect for people as they are, you can be more effective in helping them to become better than they are.

- Gardner, John W.
I must respect the opinions of others even if I disagree with them.

- Lehman, Herbert Henry
I hate victims who respect their executioners.

- Sartre, Jean-Paul
In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.

- Dali, Salvador
