Honour Quotes

Are you hero enough to unite yourself to one whom you know to be suspected and despised by all around you, and identify your interests and your honour with hers? Think! it is a serious thing.

Anne Bront

He who lives without discipline dies without honour.

Icelandic Proverb

The post of honour is a private station.

Joseph Addison

Better to die ten thousand deaths, Than wound my honour.

Joseph Addison

Peace I wish from the depths of my soul. My spiritual aim is that my people should have calmness, peace and honour in their lives.

Vellupillai Pirapakaran

The sense of honour is of so fine and delicate a nature, that it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble, or in such as have been cultivated by good examples, or a refined education.

Joseph Addison

Honour is but an itch in youthful blood Of doing acts extravagantly good.

Samuel Howard

A man of honour should never forget what he is because he sees what others are.

Baltasar Gracian

Few men have the natural strength to honour a friend's success without envy.


Our laws make law impossible; our liberties destroy all freedom; our property is organized robbery; our morality an impudent hypocrisy; our wisdom is administered by inexperienced or mal-experienced dupes; our power wielded by cowards and weaklings; and our honour false in all its points. I am an enemy of the existing order for good reasons

George Bernard Shaw

In everyone there is something precious, found in no-one else; so honour each man for what is hidden within him-- for what he alone has, and none of his fellows.

Hasidic Saying

The honour of a person lies in his needlessness from the people.

Muhammad ibn Al

One who does not use his intelligence will not succeed and one who does not use his knowledge will have no intellect. One who understands will attain nobility and excellence, and one who is tolerant will triumph. Knowledge is a shield (against evil), truth begets honour and ignorance disgrace, understanding is distinction, generosity is salvation and good manners command love and respect.

Jafar ibn Muhammad as-S

The best wealth is the one by which the honour of man is protected.

Ali al-Rida

In every nation thou beholdest unnumbered spiritual leaders who are bereft of true discernment, and among every people thou dost encounter myriads of adherents who are devoid of the same characteristic. Ponder for a while in thy heart, have pity on thyself and turn not aside thine attention from proofs and evidences. However, seek not proofs and evidences after thine idle fancy; but rather base thy proofs upon what God hath appointed. Moreover, know thou that neither being a man of learning nor being a follower is in itself a source of glory. If thou art a man of learning, thy knowledge becometh an honour, and if thou art a follower, thine adherence unto leadership becometh an honour, only when these conform to the good-pleasure of God.
