“There is no respect for others without humility in one’s self.”
— Henri Frederic Amiel, philosopher and poet

Today’s Excerpt:

Think of an object that is important to you.


  • Does this object carry special memories? What feelings does this object spark in you?
  • What do you do to make sure this object doesn’t break or get lost?

Now think of places that are important to you.


  • How do you behave differently when you are in this place? What do you feel when you’re there?
  • How would you feel if someone disrespected the things or places you value?

Respecting objects and places that other people value is just one way to show respect to other people.
