Honor

Famous quotes containing the word honor:

    Lord, what a thoughtless wretch was I,
    To mourn, and murmur and repine,
    To see the wicked placed on high,
    In pride and robes of honor shine.
    But oh, their end, their dreadful end,
    Thy sanctuary taught me so,
    On slipp’ry rocks I see them stand,
    And fiery billows roll below.
    Isaac Watts (1674–1748)

    The most spiritual human beings, assuming they are the most courageous, also experience by far the most painful tragedies: but it is precisely for this reason that they honor life, because it brings against them its most formidable weapons.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    I was just glad to get the Grammy. I didn’t know what the thing was. It’s the honor what I loved.
    Elizabeth Cotten (1892–1987)
