(Back to all quotes.)
“All people want and have the right to be treated with Dignity and Respect, No Exceptions. The only way we can do this is by separating people from their behavior. Behavior is not always worthy of respect, but the person always is.” - Gail Pursell Elliott, The Dignity and Respect Lady
“The truest help we can render an afflicted man is not to take his burden from him, but to call out his best energy, that he may be able to bear the burden.” - Phillips Brooks, 1835-1893, American Minister & Poet
