Honor quotes
Honor
When the will defies fear, when duty throws the gauntlet down to fate, when honor scorns to compromise with death -- that is heroism.

- Ingersoll, Robert Green
The time-honored bread-sauce of the happy ending.

- James, Henry
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
Not the owner of many possessions will you be right to call happy: he more rightly deserves the name of happy who knows how to use the godsí gifts wisely and to put up with rough poverty, and who fears dishonor more than death.

- Horace
Honor does not have to be defended.

- Robert J. Sawyer
Meditation is the life of the soul: Action, the soul of meditation. and honor the reward of action.

- Quarles, Francis
No labor, however humble, is dishonoring.

- Talmud, The
Since an intelligence common to us all makes things known to us and formulates them in our minds, honorable actions are ascribed by us to virtue, and dishonorable actions to vice; and only a madman would conclude that these judgments are matters of opinion, and not fixed by nature.

- Cicero, Marcus T.
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
Next to theology I give to music the highest place and honor. And we see how David and all the saints have wrought their godly thoughts into verse, rhyme, and song.

- Luther
Honor and shame from no condition rise; Act well your part, there all the honor lies.

- Pope, Alexander
The most spiritual human beings, assuming they are the most courageous, also experience by far the most painful tragedies: but it is precisely for this reason that they honor life, because it brings against them its most formidable weapons.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
War is a profession by which a man cannot live honorably; an employment by which the soldier, if he would reap any profit, is obliged to be false, rapacious, and cruel.

- Niccolo Machiavelli
HIBERNATE, v.i. To pass the winter season in domestic seclusion. There have been many singular popular notions about the hibernation of various animals. Many believe that the bear hibernates during the whole winter and subsists by mechanically sucking its paws. It is admitted that it comes out of its retirement in the spring so lean that it had to try twice before it can cast a shadow. Three or four centuries ago, in England, no fact was better attested than that swallows passed the winter months in the mud at the bottom of their brooks, clinging together in globular masses. They have apparently been compelled to give up the custom and account of the foulness of the brooks. Sotus Ecobius discovered in Central Asia a whole nation of people who hibernate. By some investigators, the fasting of Lent is supposed to have been originally a modified form of hibernation, to which the Church gave a religious significance; but this view was strenuously opposed by that eminent authority, Bishop Kip, who did not wish any honors denied to the memory of the Founder of his family.

- Ambrose Bierce
I have always recognized that the object of business is to make money in an honorable manner. I have endeavored to remember that the object of life is to do good.

- Peter Cooper
Wealth lost is something lost, honor lost is something lost: Courage lost all is lost.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Christopher Columbus, as everyone knows, is honored by posterity because he was the last to discover America.

- Joyce, James
