When you admire someone, especially because of their personal qualities, knowledge, or skills.

When you regard something or someone as important and are careful not to harm them or treat them rudely.

Example Usage:  I have the greatest respect for my teacher; The boys showed a complete lack of respect for authority.

Did you know...?  The word 'respect' was the Oxford Dictionary's 97th most-viewed word last year.
