Respect is risk-free

There’s no risk involved in addressing people as if they’re intelligent beings capable of intelligent conversation.

If others decide not to accept what you have to say, that is their right. But you have suffered no loss by treating them as if they were worthy of the highest standard of communication.

Speaking with respect, compassion, and self-control will never cost you any opportunities that are worth having.
