With MONEY, you get RESPECT-without it, you get NONE!
LOL The only respect money can get you is recognition that you can play the game well. But respect for you as a human being, exhibiting traits we respect and admire; not a single one comes from having money.
What world are you living in, man!?
In this postmodern world- it has been this way since the 1960s, if you don't have money, you aren't going to get respect. People respect those w/money more than they respect those w/o money. Without money, one is NOTHING.......A LITTLE PERSON............INCONSEQUENTIAL.......With money, one is a MENSCH......BIG SHOT......SOMEBODY...............Money divides people into SOMEBODIES......& NOBODIES......Somebodies get the respect, even the love & nobodies.....forget about it(New York accent).....get out of here(New York accent)..........
Worth as a human being is NOTHING w/o socioeconomic proof. Worth as a human being in itself is a total fantastical notion. In this society, money proves how worthy a person is. Your comments must be a hoot. If you said that around certain circles, you would be laughed at or thought to be insanely naive!
"if you don't have money, you aren't going to get respect"
You may not gaze past the fancy suit of clothes and Mercedes, but I tend to look just a wee bit deeper at what's under all the flash. As a very general statement, I tend to have a lot more respect for people that don't have wads of money than I do for those that do. They are, to put it bluntly, just better people.
because money is directly proportional to respect now a days.
i would go for respect for sure but as already stated these days having money is directly proportional to getting respect!
Money is very important in life, but respect is much more important. Respect is all about dignity. There is an African proverb which says "if you are going in search of money and met respect on the road it is a very good thing because if you eventually get the money, you will use it to buy respect"
Respect. That remains still even when I die. I'd rather die without money than to die without respect.
respect by a long shot. i make a pretty decent living but if i didn't care about respect i could triple my income easily. i actually don't care about money other then for the reason that i have a family to support.
Respect first. I love Joseph Noble and romaris' response. True respect is based on character.. money cant that.
Where there is respect, their money flows automatically, but where there is money, their respect does not float, we will have to get it, depending upon the society we have nearby.
I think I'll go for what tribhuban said, even though the truth about it is a sad state of affairs.
RESPECT money can be found anywhere but its hard to earn genuine RESPECT.
It is enough that mostly the rich people suffer to discover, when thay build any new relationship, if the other side respect them or respect their money.
When money goes they go wtiht it.
respect. everyone has money. a little or a lot. all has money. all don't have respect and hardly many people give respect to all which is the right thing to do to all people
..if you have respect, you have everything,
to have too much money is just at bad as
not hav ing any.
Respect is better.Money go too fast.Sliver and gold i might have none,but stability cannot be bought with it...and neither can it buy love.
Truthfully, I do not seek either of these.
Money is simply a medium of trade.
Respect should be earned.
So what, if someone does not respect that I raise chickens, or trade stocks, sell insurance, write books, assist families in need, etc, etc, etc,
Peace of mind and a clear conscience............THAT is the goal.
