“Show respect to all people, but grovel to none.” Tecumseh
“I really like this quote by Tecumseh as it encapsulates the essence of respect. I agree that everyone should show respect to all people but as Tecumseh makes clear in this quote they should grovel to none. Anyone who expects you to grovel has no respect for themselves and they will never respect someone who grovels before them. Tecumseh is right on the money with this quote.” Stan Burman

An inspirational quote by Les Brown is the topic of this blog post.
“Other people’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality.” Les Brown
“I really love this quote. It reminds me of the old saying that opinions are like noses everybody has one. I know from my own experience that it can be hard not to let the opinions of others influence you to some extent. But other people’s opinion of you is not reality, it is just the opinion of someone and that is all that it is. It does not have to become your reality unless you allow it to become your reality. The choice is always in your hands, not anyone else. I wish I had taken this quotation to heart when I was much younger but that reminds me of another old saying that goes better late than never. I have taken this quotation to heart for several years now and I have found out that it gets easier the longer you stay with it.” Stan Burman
