‘Tis nobler to lose honour to save the lives of men than it is to gain honour by taking them. - David Borenstein

Better to die ten thousand deaths than wound my honour. - Joseph Addison

Honor is like an island, rugged and without shores; once we have left it, we can never return. - Nicolas Boileau-Despreaux

Honour and shame from no condition rise; Act well your part, there all the
honour lies. - Alexander Pope

Honour has not to be won; it must only not be lost. - Arthur Schopenhauer

Honour is the inner garment of the Soul; the first thing put on by it with the flesh, and the last it layeth down at its separation from it. - Akhnaton

Honour lies in honest toil. - Grover Cleveland

It is better to deserve honours and not have them than to have them and not deserve them. - Mark Twain

No person was ever honoured for what he received. Honour has been the reward for what he gave.
- Calvin Coolidge

Rather fail with honour than succeed by fraud. - Sophocles

Say not that honour is the child of boldness, nor believe thou that the hazard of life alone can pay the price of it: it is not to the action that it is due, but to the manner of performing it. - Akhnaton

The shortest and surest way to live with honor in the world is to be in reality what we would appear to be; and if we observe, we shall find that all human virtues increase and strengthen themselves by the practice and experience of them. - Socrates

You can be deprived of your money, your job and your home by someone else, but remember that no one can ever take away your honour. - William Lyon Phelps
