    Help I need a Quote!!

    Advertisements
    Ok so I need some kind of quote for my FB.. kind of a jab at my ex for being so close minded and not respecting anyone (unless of course they're a fellow marine.. long story.. anyways). So I want something about Respect and maybe how you really aren't as high up on your horse as you think. Is anyone good at quotes or have some really good ones sitting around?

    This probably doesn't make as much sense as I want it to, so I apologize in advance!

    Why not completely ignoring the fact that he exists? By you making little jabs here and there about him, it's just going to show him that you still think about him; positive or not. Ultimately, if he's trying to one up you, your just letting him.

    be cool.

    It's really hard to explain. I have moved on.. I am at a really good part of my life, but every once in awhile that just bugs me that he thinks he's such hot shit and he really hasn't accomplished much and he looks down on everyone else.. including me after we had been friends for 6 years. I doubt he would even read it.. I'm just trying to find a good real quote from someone about respecting everyone... type of thing.

    If your ex is THAT much of a jerk, why do you even keep him on your Facebook friend's list?!?

    What's your trick! how did you find all of these? I love them! I'm stuck between two.. I may use both:

    Every human being, of whatever origin, of whatever station, deserves respect. We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves.

    and
