Honors achieved far exceed those that are created.
      - Solon

I would prefer even to fail with honor than to win by cheating.
      - Sophocles

Honor is but the reflection of a man's own actions shining bright in the face of all about him, and from thence rebounding upon himself.
      - Bishop Robert South

To contemn all the wealth and power in the world, where they stand in competition with a man's honor, is rather good sense than greatness of mind.
      - Sir Richard Steele

No man of honor, as the word is usually understood, did ever pretend that his honor obliged him to be chaste or temperate, to pay his creditors, to be useful to his country, to do good to mankind, to endeavor to be wise or learned, to regard his word, his promise, or his oath.
      - Jonathan Swift

What is left when honour is lost?
      - Syrus (Publilius Syrus), Maxims

His honor rooted in dishonor stood,
  And faith unfaithful kept him falsely true.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson,
        Idylls of the King--Lancelot and Elaine
         (l. 886)

Unblemished honor is the flower of virtue! the vivifying soul! and he who slights it will leave the other dull and lifeless dross.
      - James Thomson (1)

The nation's honor is dearer than the nation's comfort; yes, than the nation's life itself.
      - Thomas Woodrow Wilson, in a speech
