Respect. Respect is a feeling of deep admiration for someone that by their abilities, qualities, or achievements of doing something with high standards has been accomplished. My grandmother (abuela) used to say (Respeta la cabeza cana y respetado seras mañana) "Respect the white head and respected you'll be tomorrow". Therefore, I believe respect is something earned you must respect others to earn that respect back; like the old saying
"The respect for the right of others is peace"
