On Respect

Respect is recognition of worth.
I would rather have someone hate me and respect me than someone contempt me and find me likable.

An enemy that I respect is an adversary. A friend that I don't respect is a utility.

Respect can be given or acknowledged. To the degree that I esteem someone who doesn't deserve it, I lose my own esteem.
