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.
Honor is simply the morality of superior men.
To those whose God is honor; only disgrace is a sin.
A hundred years cannot repair a moment’s loss of honor.
Why should honor outlive honesty?
He who has lost honor can lose nothing more.
No one ever lost his honor, except he who had it not.
It is the dissimilarities and inequalities among men which give rise to the notion of honor; as such differences become less, it grows feeble; and when they disappear, it will vanish too.
It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them.
For one who has been honored, dishonor is worse than death.
