She’s looks respectable, all dressed up in a skirt and suit jacket with a perfectly ironed crease-free shirt on, white as snow and just as pure.
He’s scruffy and dirty and needs a shave, and probably a bath too, judging by the colour of his fingernails and the state of his hair.
He’s touched her and held her and done all sorts of things to her he knows he shouldn’t have done.
But she needed him to.
She needed him to.

Of dignity and pride
Standing there like a pillar
Holding all things of justice;
(the face of humanity)
You are the light that shines
brighter than the Sun.

I want to be a respectable person. I do what I think is right. I keep my word. I speak truthfully. But sometimes, I stumble. Sometimes I lose respect for myself. Sometimes it’s not so easy to do the things I always swore I would.

Now tired beyond respectable. That sort of behaviour should be forbidden by the moral police.

I know not one respectable human being. For in being a human being, we forge our rights to be anything but awful.

My mother is a very respectable woman. She used to tell me how the world worked. Now, when I’m a man, I see that she often was wrong. But that’s ok, because i’m a man.

“I don’t,” I replied, “as a rule, trust people who say ‘trust me’.”
“You don’t?” he asked with that same smile.
“Only con men HAVE to say it; respectable people don’t NEED to.”
“A very astute observation. And like most astute observations, sometimes inaccurate.”
I was starting to enjoy this banter between us. Was it just because I had been alone, missing companionship… or was it something else?

The only thing respectable in this world is value itself.

respect dont expect just respect every aspect.

I think people. People deserve to be respected. Doesn’t matter if they are famous, or if they are an everyday person like you and me. If you respect other people, you will be respectable.
By PollyAnna on 01.08.2011
Being respectable should be a key ingredient in live. But not all people are respectable. The dont deserve it. The first thing one should look at is themselves. If you respect yourself, others will too.

It is perfectly respectable to bring a guest to our weekly dinner.
What is not respectable?
Crashing your car through the dining room window strung out on coke with a dead hooker in the front seat.
Your parents did not appreciate that lapse in your otherwise ‘respectable’ behavior, Son.
By tHG URL on 01.08.2011
He was a respectable man. What did that even mean, she wondered? The kind of man you could respect, whether he deserved it or not.
By electronicmily URL on 01.08.2011
I am not sure that I want to be considered a respectable person. The picture of a respectable person in my mindi s one who wears a very dull hat and gray clothes. Respectable is one who takes all responsibilities seriously and never lets go and just bes wild sometimes, which is what I’d rather be. That’s what living out loud is, maybe not respectable, I don’t know. I do think I deserve respect though.

Those who deserve respect. People who are of a certain character that should be treated with a high level of respect.

He was a respectable man; in his tailored suit and italian shoes. But behind the grin, I could see he was hurting. I said hello. No answer. And then it went black.

Why can’t I think of anything to write for the word ‘respectable’?
By Emily Duvall URL on 01.08.2011
I am a respectable person. I give and receive it. I don’t really understand what this is all about. Why am I writing this bull? Am I done yet? Yes, I am done. r e s p e c t a b l e .
By Coty on 01.08.2011
I’m far too knackered to worry about being respectable right now – though what my excuse is most of the time I’ve no idea. It seems such a waste of energy, worrying about what other people think. Now, where’s the wine
By joey URL on 01.08.2011
As a vicar’s wife, Sheila projected the very epitome of respectability. As a Bishop’s mistress, she eschewed such niceties, preferring instead to proceed along an outwardly masochistic trajectory.

Respectable. You are a respectable source of good advice, but in the end I must make my own decisions, and run my own life.

The woman walked down the hall with dignity, never faltering her glance from the door at the end of the path. To each side, her co-workers we scattered and watched as she strutted with her usual grace. Though her heart was utterly broken, she remained respectable.
By Nanase URL on 01.08.2011
Respectable is a word most people don’t understand. People don’t act respectable, people don’t treat other people respectable. They know the definition of the word, they know how to use it in context, however they don’t know how to put it into action. To respect…to be respected.
By Rachel on 01.08.2011
respectable and dignified
we all need to be treated that way no matter who we are or even where we live
all humans need to be treated with care and concern because we are all brothers
By shelly on 01.08.2011
that’s a respectable word…earning respect….how do you earn respect? how do you become respectable. I think it’s a trust issue, one that can be proven and earned over time. it’s hard to earn respectability after losing trust
By phpea URL on 01.08.2011
Ja, das muss ein Mann sein, mit den Falten am rechten Platz im Gesicht, gelocktes Haar, kurz geschnitten, und dann dieser Blick und diese gewisse Art zu reden, mit schnarrender Stimme, so dass man sich gar nicht traut zu sagen, dass man anderer Meinung ist. Auch anderen gegenüber nicht.

I can be that respectable girl, the one who you bring home to your parents and smile as I shake their hands. I can be that smart girl, the one who is able to argue against you and be right. I can be that feisty girl, the one who pushes you against the bathroom wall and kisses you. I can be the dependable girl, the one who is there to talk when the world is on your shoulders and its hard. I can be the perfect girlfriend, the one who compliments you so nicely. I can be all of these things so effortlessly but all you wanted from me was a good fuck. I hope you realize what you lost and thats why you won’t look at me in class.
By lilldeh URL on 01.08.2011
I knew I could never be respectable. No matter how I tried to cover it up with high street labels and american cosmetics, it would always be there, detectable to those who cared to really look.

He ran toward the stretch of green, a small oasis in the middle of the gray artificial foundation of the city around it. He ran so fast it was chaotic, unbalanced, and drew looks of mild curiosity mingled with irritation. Dressed in the canary yellow of his college football team and baggy shorts, he stood out from the black suits and lavish designer clothing that dominated the big city. He ran toward the sprinklers with one goal in mind. He was more respectable than any of the spectators rushing past, their dark looks dissolving into looks of contempt.
By Reid URL on 01.08.2011
My writings have always been respectable. It’s like… where people know that they should respect it! I know! It is worthy of resect. Some peoplpe think that others aren’t respectable and so they don’t respect them.

All I want is to bury him in a respectable manner! I loved him…
You asked me to help get rid of the body and I’m doing it. What do you want, aftercare and a ******** warranty?
For the amount I’m paying you that wouldn’t be unreasonable, Cedric….
Don’t ***** call me that!
You know there’s a zoo near here. Did you ever see the movie Goodfellas?
They fed the dead guy to the lions….
That would be one ****** of a send-off, wouldn’t it, Marjorie!
I can think of none better. Come on – let’s get that hamster back into the glovebox!
By MibbiTheDoorman URL on 01.08.2011
respectable is a weird word. and my dad likes it. and you need to respect yourself to be resectable because if you’re a whore you can’t be respectable because you do’t respect yourself. waaaah is the noise i won’t make till i’m married cuzz i respect myself so i am a respectable person. to be respectable you need to respect others around you

Well dressed, a pillar of the community, Reginald was always regarded as a respectable member of society… perhaps it was because of his wit, perhaps the grace with which he carried himself or his social demeanour; on balance, it was probably his connections with easily manipulated police officers and the concealed firearm he would swing around brazenly when the whiskey kicked in. For sure it wasn’t his dangerous and virulent nosehair.

That lady was absolutely respectable, she fucked them all in a neat, nice position.

Does that mean deserving to be respected? Or able to be respected? Or allowed to be respected? Or all or none of the above?

It was a respectable wool coat she wore for ten years or more, but the pockets were stained with the vomit of seven babies who had been carried over her arm while she hoisted a toddler with the other, each in turn spilling their guts time and again into the pocket of her respectable wool coat.

My elders are respectable. They’re my elders, which means they’ve lived longer than me. They’re respectable for just still being alive.
By Tyler URL on 01.08.2011
Being respectable mean shaping yourself to what others want you to be. They want you to be somewhat perfect and being somewhat perfect in today’s society isn’t that great. However, if you don’t live up to peoples beliefs then you are “hardly respectable.” What you think is respectable is the only thing that matters.
I’m not a respectable person. Sadly everyone likes to think I am, which is really a shame. With a few, well placed lies I can get myself anywhere. And I can become anyone. Everyone seems to feel the need to put their trust in me. Sad thing is, I manipulate them without their even knowing. Silly humans.
