(p.iii) Lack of respect, though less aggressive than an outright insult, can take an equally wounding form. No insult is offered another person, but neither is recognition extended; he or she is not seen– as a full human being whose presence matters. (Richard Sennett, 2003)

Once you leave behind such class concerns as how to balance the peas on the back of a fork, all the important rules surely boil down to one: remember you are with other people; show some consideration. (Lynne Truss, 2005)

… preventing crime for me also means all of us as a community setting boundaries between what is acceptable and unacceptable behaviour – with clear penalties for stepping over the line. Boundaries that reflect the words I was taught when I was young – words upon which we all know strong communities are founded: discipline, respect, responsibility. (Gordon Brown, 2007)

There was no respect for youth when I was young, and now that I am old, there is no respect for age – I missed it coming and going. (Attributed to J.B. Priestley) (p.iv)
