Winning Respect

18. One who is wise and disciplined,
Kindly always and intelligent,
Humble and free from pride –
One like this will win respect.

Rising early and scorning laziness,
Remaining calm in time of strife,
Faultless in conduct and clever in actions –
One like this will win respect.

Being able to make friends and keep them,
Welcoming others and sharing with them,
A guide, philosopher and friend –
One like this will win respect.

Being generous and kindly in speech,
Doing a good turn for others
And treating all alike –
One like this will win respect.

Digha Nikaya III.
