How to use respect in a sentence?

  1. Ehsan Sehgal:

    I highly respect freedom of press and speech, and I am sure you too. Whenever I read history, and try to understand a character of Vampire that survives in its Gloomy House after sucking the blood of a virgin; indeed, it defines an illusion. If I compare that with the White House, where ever, it exists; transparently, it demonstrates the same description; however, it falls not under an illusion; it verifies a reality of survival. The solution everyone knows, need only the courage for the peace of entire humanity on the blue planet.

  2. Nile Gardiner:

    [Kerry’s remarks are] a reflection of a broader disdain for Britain that runs through the Obama presidency, without a doubt the Obama administration has not treated Britain with the kind of respect America’s closest friend and ally deserves to be treated.

  3. Robert Amsterdam:

    In respect to Gulen's activities in the United States, (the ruling) has no relevance at all, we are waiting for the U.S. regulatory authorities in those states to get back to us. We are expecting reactions in the next few months.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Sharing a strange experience from my student years at Manchester, England, during late 1970's. I had just arrived in England from India, and was searching for an accommodation, basically a room to rent. I always used to call the English landlords by phnoe first, to ensure that a room was available, and then visit those addresses, located miles away, by taking the bus or a train. Upon my arrival, I was always told that either there was no room at all or that the room was just rented. After a dozen or so such frustrating experiences, it became clear to me that the room was always available - but those English landlords and landladies were reluctant to rent it to someone like me, an Indian or a non-white person. Interestingly, the room was always available to my voice on the phone, because my voice could not reveal either my skin color, or my race, or my national origin. The mystery was thus dispelled, and yet that realization was surely a rude awakening to the true color of English society. It was my first encounter with prejudice and discrimination, and the most shocking moment that shatters one's innocence completely - especially after coming from a noble culture and the best upbringing that takes pride in Equality. I shall always remain thankful to England for the best education that I received during my M.S. and Ph.D., as much as for such exposure to the dark side of the real world. Years later, after coming to America, I realized that America is a whole new wonderful world that welcomes all, and treats everyone with respect and dignity they deserve. God Bless America!

  5. Ted Cruz:

    Oh listen, I like and respect Donald Trump, i continue to like and respect Donald Trump. While other candidates in this race have gone out of their way to throw rocks at him, to insult him, I have consistently declined to do so and I have no intention of changing that now.
