Quotable Sunday

I'm thinking its time to participate in Toni's Quotable Sunday again!!
Each Sunday, Toni hosts Quotable Sunday- you can participate too, head over and link up!!

This week I want to do a few quotes about respect. I feel like I like to give everyone respect unless they give me a reason not to. I was disrespected, in my eyes- very seriously, by a family "friend" last weekend at my own childrens birthday party, so respect has been weighing heavy on my mind all week long.

"Be beautiful if you can, Wise if you want... But be respectful- that is essential" ~Anna Gould

Sorry to have you were disrespected at your child's birthday party.

I like the Jackie Robinson quote -"I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me... All I ask is that you respect me as a human being."

Hopefully, the person who disrespected you will read it.

I totally agree and have the same outlook, until you give me a reason to I will respect you, no matter who you are but once I lose respect it's hard for me to give it back to someone :)

Love this quote, sums it up well

Love this quote: I'm not concerned with your liking or disliking me... All I ask is that you respect me as a human being." I am sorry you had a tough week, I am big on respect too and it just sucks that you had that kind of week. Hope your week is better!
