Famous quotes containing the word honor:

    Funeral pomp is more for the vanity of the living than for the honor of the dead.
    François, Duc De La Rochefoucauld (1613–1680)

    There is no question what the roll of honor in America is. The roll of honor consists of the names of men who have squared their conduct by ideals of duty.
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    ... until both employers’ and workers’ groups assume responsibility for chastising their own recalcitrant children, they can vainly bay the moon about “ignorant” and “unfair” public criticism. Moreover, their failure to impose voluntarily upon their own groups codes of decency and honor will result in more and more necessity for government control.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
