Can anyone tell me the difference between "admire" and "respect" in this sentence:
Pettineo has become a sort of domestic art museum in which any visitor can ring a door
bell, go into a house and admire a paiting.
Why I can't use "respect" instead?
respect a painting? no no no
You can respect people, culture, beliefs and such, but what has a painting done to earn your respect? Exactly,.....nothing
