By the side of honor, humiliation waits. When honored, one ought not be high-spirited. Behind poverty, prosperity follows. When impoverished, why should one by low-spirited.
To those whose God is honor; only disgrace is a sin.
Honor is simply the morality of superior men.
Honor has not to be won; it must only not be lost.
The only thing of weight that can be said against modern honor is that it is directly opposite to religion. The one bids you bear injuries with patience, the other tells you if you don’t resent them, you are not fit to live.
A hundred years cannot repair a moment’s loss of honor.
For one who has been honored, dishonor is worse than death.
Why should honor outlive honesty?
Honor lies in honest toil.
He who has lost honor can lose nothing more.
