Honor

Famous quotes containing the word honor:

    Let fame, that all hunt after in their lives,
    Live registered upon our brazen tombs,
    And then grace us in the disgrace of death;
    When spite of cormorant devouring Time,
    Th’ endeavor of this present breath may buy
    That honor which shall bate his scythe’s keen edge,
    And make us heirs of all eternity.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    To save our imperiled honor everything must be sacrificed, even virtue.
    Jean Racine (1639–1699)

    I understand the phrase “Honor the Women” all too well: the poet has probably a wife of his own, but he prefers to honor another.
    Franz Grillparzer (1791–1872)
