Respect denotes both a positive feeling of esteem for a person or other entity (such as a nation or a religion), and also specific actions and conduct representative of that esteem. Respect can be a specific feeling of regard for the actual qualities of the one respected (e.g., "I have great respect for her judgment"). It can also be conduct in accord with a specific ethic of respect.

It’s my belief that we are all created equal, hence I respect all human beings regardless of race, color or creed.  Respect and dignity go hand in hand.
