Honor quotes
Honor
If courtesans and strumpets were to be prosecuted with as much rigor as some silly people would have it, what locks or bars would be sufficient to preserve the honor of our wives and daughters?

- Mandeville, Bernard
Content thyself to be obscurely good. When vice prevails, and impious men bear sway, the post of honor is a private station.

- Joseph Addison
I am eternally grateful.. for my knack of finding in great books, some of them very funny books, reason enough to feel honored to be alive, no matter what else might be going on.

Christopher Columbus, as everyone knows, is honored by posterity because he was the last to discover America.

- Joyce, James
All of Western tradition, from the late bloom of the British Empire right through the early doom of Vietnam, dictates that you do something spectacular and irreversible whenever you find yourself in or whenever you impose yourself upon a wholly unfamiliar situation belonging to somebody else. Frequently it's your soul or your honor or your manhood, or democracy itself, at stake.

- Jordan, June
Woman's honor is nice as ermine; it will not bear a soil.

- Dryden, John
The religion that is afraid of science dishonors God and commits suicide.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Flowers that are so pathetic in their beauty, frail as the clouds, and in their coloring as gorgeous as the heavens, had through thousands of years been the heritage of children -- honored as the jewelry of God only by them -- when suddenly the voice of Christianity, counter-signing the voice of infancy, raised them to a grandeur transcending the Hebrew throne, although founded by God himself, and pronounced Solomon in all his glory not to be arrayed like one of these.

- Quincey, Thomas De
Pay no attention to what the critics say... Remember, a statue has never been set up in honor of a critic!

- Jean Sibelius
What is left when honor is lost?

- Publilius Syrus

- Rabelais, Francois
Who ever enters here, honors me; who ever does not-- pleases me.

- Anatole France
Educating a son I should allow him no fairy tales and only a very few novels. This is to prevent him from having 1. the sense of romantic solitude (if he is worth anything he will develop a proper and useful solitude) which identification with the hero gives. 2. cant ideas of right and wrong, absurd systems of honor and morality which never will he be able completely to get rid of, 3. the attainment of ideals, of a priori desires, of a priori emotions. He should amuse himself with fact only: he will then not learn that if the weak younger son do or do not the magical honorable thing he will win the princess with hair like flax.

- Trilling, Lionel
With coarse rice to eat, with water to drink, and my bended arm for a pillow - I have still joy in the midst of these things. Riches and honors acquired by unrighteousness are to me as a floating cloud.

- Confucius
A good and faithful judge ever prefers the honorable to the expedient.

- Horace
What office is there which involves more responsibility, which requires more qualifications, and which ought, therefore, to be more honorable, than that of teaching?

- Martineau, Harriet
Honor is unstable and seldom the same; for she feeds upon opinion, and is as fickle as her food.

- Colton, Charles Caleb
Our young people have come to look upon war as a kind of beneficent deity, which not only adds to the national honor but uplifts a nation and develops patriotism and courage. That is all true. But it is only fair, too, to let them know that the garments of the deity are filthy and that some of her influences debase and befoul a people.

- Davis, Rebecca Harding
Books have a sense of honor. If they are lent out, they will not come back.

- Theodor Fontane
BONDSMAN, n. A fool who, having property of his own, undertakes to become responsible for that entrusted to another to a third. Philippe of Orleans wishing to appoint one of his favorites, a dissolute nobleman, to a high office, asked him what security he would be able to give. "I need no bondsmen," he replied, "for I can give you my word of honor." "And pray what may be the value of that?" inquired the amused Regent. "Monsieur, it is worth its weight in gold."

- Ambrose Bierce
