Key to honest love: respect

   The key to honest love is respect.  The prerequisite to true 
   affection for someone is respect.  The necessary condition for 
   true friendship is respect and regard.  To truly like someone 
   else you must first respect him.  To truly like yourself you 
   must first of all respect yourself.  This is the First Law of 
   Mental Health.  It is because of this law that it is so 
   important to live a life of principle, to live according to the 
   highest that lies within you.  To achieve respect one must 
   merit respect.  There is no other way.  You can't fake it.  
   People can see right through you.  You are more transparent 
   than you think.  To respect yourself you must merit it.  You 
   can't fool yourself.  You must be what you know you should be.  
   There is no other way.
