Every person you meet deeply desires to be treated with respect. If you listen carefully, you will hear them cry: "Please consider me an important person. Don't embarrass or insult me. Please listen to me when I speak."
If you learn to treat every person you meet with respect, you will have many friends throughout your life. Upon meeting another person, ask yourself, "What can I say to this person to show him respect?"
(Daat Chochmah Umussar, vol.3, p.68; Rabbi Pliskin's Gateway to Happiness, p.138)
