When writing your questions, or anything else, stay in the habit of capitalizing and punctuating properly. There is no missing verb here. It is 'respect'. The only way I would change this is to write 'of the river', and make friend's possesive. You are comparing the qualities of the river with the qualities of a friends.


I respect these qualities of the river as I would any good friend's.
