To be wealthy and honoured in an unjust society is a disgrace.  Confucius, The Analects 

 

 

And I admit fully that my judgment was probably coloured by my tendency to be too honourable  but that’s just the way it is.  Prince Andrew & the Epstein Scandal, BBC 2019

 

 

For ’tis the mind that makes the body rich,

And as the sun breaks through the darkest clouds,

So honour peereth in the meanest habit.  William Shakespeare, The Taming of the Shrew IV iii 170-172, Petruccio

 

 

By heaven methinks it were an easy leap

To pluck bright honour from the pale-faced moon,

Or dive into the bottom of the deep,

Where fathom-line could never touch the ground,

And pluck up drowned honour by the locks.  I Henry IV I iii 201

 

Can honour set-to a leg?  No.  Or an arm?  No.  Or take away the grief of a wound?  No.  Honour hath no skill in surgery, then?  No.  What is honour?  A word.  What is the word ‘honour’?  What is that ‘honour’?  Air.  A trim reckoning!  Who hath it? ... Honour is a mere escutcheon.  ibid.  IV V i 131-140, Sir John to self

 

 

The purest treasure mortal times afford

Is spotless reputation; that away,

Men are but gilded loam or painted clay.

A jewel in a ten-times-barred-up chest

Is a bold spirit in a loyal breast.

Mine honour is my life; both grow in one;

Take honour from me, and my life is done.  William Shakespeare, Richard II I i 177

 

 

For let the gods so speed me that I love the name of Honour more than I fear Death.  Julius Caesar starring Paterson Joseph & Ray Fearon & Cyril Nri & Adjoa Andoh & Jeffery Kissoon et al, director Gregory Duran RSC production ***** Brutus, 2012

 

Honour is the subject of my story.  ibid.  Cassius

 

 

Set honour in on eye and death i’ in other,

And I will look on both indifferently.  William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar I ii 86

 

Well, honour is the subject of my story.

I cannot tell what you and other men

Think of this life: but, for my single self,

I had as life not be as live to be

In awe of such a thing as I myself.  ibid.  I ii 92

 

For Brutus is an honourable man;

So are they all, all honourable men.  ibid.  III ii 88

 

Thy life hath had some snatch of honour in it.  ibid.  V v 46

 

 

If we are marked to die, we are enough

To do our country loss, as if to love,

The fewer men, the greater share of honour.  William Shakespeare, Henry V IV iii 20-22, King Harry

 

 

Rightly to be great

Is not to stir without great argument,

But greatly to find quarrel in a straw

When honour’s at the stake.  William Shakespeare, Hamlet IV iv 53 William Shakespeare

 

 

An honourable murderer, if you will

For naught did I in hate, but all in honour.  William Shakespeare, Othello V ii 293

 

 

Your father shall learn Mr Fabian is not an honourable man.  Night and the City 1950 starring Richard Widmark & Gene Tierney & Googie Withers & Hugh Marlowe & Francis L Sullivan & Herbert Lom & Stanislaus Zbyszko & Mike Mazurki et al, director Jules Dassin, Phil to Kristo

 

 

Nothing except honour.  Gone with the Wind 1939 starring Clark Gable & Vivien Leigh & Leslie Howard & Olivia de Haviland & Thomas Mitchell & Barbara Mitchell & Evelyn Keyes & Ann Rutherford & George Reeves & Fred Crane & Hattie McDaniel & Alicia Rhett et al, director Victor Fleming, Ashley

 

Nothing to live for.  ibid.  Scarlett

 

 

It is now for you to reclaim our lost honour.  Enter the Dragon 1973 starring Bruce Lee & John Saxon & Ahna Capri & Shih Kien & Robert Wall & Angela Mao & Bolo Yeung & Peter Archer et al, director Robert Clouse, Master to Lee

 

 

I say Japan was made by a handful of brave men … A forgotten word – Honour.  The Last of the Samurai 2003 starring Tom Cruise & Ken Watanabe & Bill Connolly & Shin Koyamada & Tony Goldwyn & Masato Harada & Shichinosuke Nakamura & Timothy Spall & Seizo Fukumoto et al, director Edward Zwick

 

 

He taught me to appreciate life in ways I’d never thought about before.  He taught me about art, and science and diplomacy.  Whatever sense of honour I have today, he nurtured.  Star Trek: Deep Space Nine s1e8: Dax, Sisko re Dax

 

 

Where honour should be, in me there is only a void.  Becket 1964 starring Peter O’Toole & Richard Burton & John Gielgud & Paolo Stoppa & Donald Wolfit & David Weston & Martita Hunt & Pamela Brown & Felix Aylmer & Gino Cervi & Christopher Rhodes et al, director Peter Glenville

 

 

And honour sinks where commerce long prevails.  Oliver Goldsmith

 

 

Better to die ten thousand deaths,

Than wound my honour.  Joseph Addison, Cato, A Tragedy I iv

 

Content thyself to do obscurely good.  When vice prevails, and impious men bear sway, the post of honour is a private station.  ibid.  IV iv

 

 

Who sows virtue reaps honour.  Leonardo da Vinci

 

 

Honour is the reward of virtue.  Marcus Tullius Cicero

 

 

Honour means that a man is not exceptional; fame, that he is.  Fame is something which must be won; honour, only something which must not be lost.  Arthur Schopenhauer

 

 

Rather fail with honour than success with fraud.  Sophocles

 

 

Remember, you’re fighting for this woman’s honour … which is probably more than she ever did.  Duck Soup 1933 starring Groucho Marx & Harpo Marx & Chico Marx & Zeppo Marx & Margaret Dumont & Louis Calhern & Raquel Torres & Edgar Kennedy & Edmund Breese & Edwin Maxwell & William Worthington et al, director Leo McCarey

 

 

Nothing is more honourable than a grateful heart.  Seneca

 

 

Nobody can acquire honour by doing what is wrong.  Thomas Jefferson

 

 

Honour is simply the morality of superior men.  H L Mencken

 

 

The greatest way to live with honour in this world is to be what we pretend to be.  Socrates

 

 

Honour is purchas’d by the deedes wee do.

Believe me Hero, honour is not won,

Until some honourable deed be done.   Christopher Marlowe, Hero and Leander

 

 

Virtue is the fount whence honour springs.  Christopher Marlowe, Tamburlaine the Great, 1590

 

 

Honour, without money, is just a disease.  Jean Racine, Les Plaideurs, 1668

 

 

It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.  Proverbs 20:3

 

 

Leave not a stain upon thine honour.  Ecclesiasticus 33:22

 

 

Honour is like a match, you can only use it once.  Marcel Pagnol, Marius, 1946

 

 

In honour I gained them, and in honour I will die with them.  Horatio Nelson
