Honor

Famous quotes containing the word honor:

    One should still honor the enemy in his friend. Can you go up close to your friend without going over to him?
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    Wherever I look, I see signs of the commandment to honor one’s parents and nowhere of a commandment that calls for the respect of a child.
    Alice Miller (20th century)

    This monument, so imposing and tasteful, fittingly typifies the grand and symmetrical character of him in whose honor it has been builded. His was “the arduous greatness of things done.” No friendly hands constructed and placed for his ambition a ladder upon which he might climb. His own brave hands framed and nailed the cleats upon which he climbed to the heights of public usefulness and fame.
    Benjamin Harrison (1833–1901)
