Deference \Def"er*ence\, n. [F. d['e]f['e]rence. See 3d
{Defer}.]
A yielding of judgment or preference from respect to the
wishes or opinion of another; submission in opinion; regard;
respect; complaisance.
[1913 Webster]

Deference to the authority of thoughtful and sagacious
men. --Whewell.
[1913 Webster]

Deference is the most complicate, the most indirect,
and the most elegant of all compliments. --Shenstone.

Syn: {Deference}, {Reverence}, {Respect}.

Usage: Deference marks an inclination to yield one's opinion,
and to acquiesce in the sentiments of another in
preference to one's own. Respect marks the estimation
that we have for another, which makes us look to him
as worthy of high confidence for the qualities of his
mind and heart. Reverence denotes a mingling of fear
with a high degree of respect and esteem. Age, rank,
dignity, and personal merit call for deference;
respect should be paid to the wise and good; reverence
is due to God, to the authors of our being, and to the
sanctity of the laws.
[1913 Webster]
