Quotes about Honor
Keep true, never be ashamed of doing right; decide on what you think is right and stick to it.
A lot of times when people make accusations like that about other people - "Oh, he can't really be doing this for principled reasons, he must have some corrupt, nefarious reason" - they're saying a lot more about themselves than they are the target of their accusations, because those people, the ones who make that accusation, they themselves never act for any reason other than corrupt reasons, so they assume that everybody else is plagued by the same disease of soullessness as they are, and so that's the assumption.
Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.
It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them.
