Letter "H" » Honor
«All honor to him who shall win the prize,'The world has cried for a thousand years;But to him who tries and fails and dies,I give great honor and glory and tears.»
«A man has honor if he holds himself to an ideal of conduct though it is inconvenient, unprofitable, or dangerous to do so.»
«Be honorable yourself if you wish to associate with honorable people.»
«But an officer on duty knows no one -- to be partial is to dishonor both himself and the object of his illadvised favor. What will be thought of him who exacts of his friends that which disgraces him? Look at him who winks at and overlooks offences in one, which he causes to be punished in another, and contrast him with the inflexible soldier who does his duty faithfully, notwithstanding it occasionally wars with his private feelings. The conduct of one will be venerated and emulated, the other detested as a satire upon soldiership and honor.»
«Could I have but a line a century hence crediting a contribution to the advance of peace, I would gladly yield every honor which has been accorded me in war»
Author: Douglas MacArthur

«A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon.»
«For neither birth, nor wealth, nor honors, can awaken in the minds of men the principles which should guide those who from their youth aspire to an honorable and excellent life, as Love awakens them»
