Quote of the Day
Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth.
Our parents deserve our honor and respect for giving us life itself. Beyond this they almost always made countless sacrifices as they cared for and nurtured us through our infancy and childhood, provided us with the necessities of life, and nursed us through physical illnesses and the emotional stresses of growing up.
Ezra Taft Benson
You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.

Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.
All the great things are simple, and many can be expressed in a single word: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.

Lana Del Rey
I love the name of honor, more than I fear death.
No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.
These fallen heroes represent the character of a nation who has a long history of patriotism and honor - and a nation who has fought many battles to keep our country free from threats of terror.
Michael N. Castle
Confidence... thrives on honesty, on honor, on the sacredness of obligations, on faithful protection and on unselfish performance. Without them it cannot live.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I would prefer even to fail with honor than win by cheating.
Leadership to me means duty, honor, country. It means character, and it means listening from time to time.
George W. Bush
Who sows virtue reaps honor.
Leonardo da Vinci
I take things like honor and loyalty seriously. It's more important to me than any materialistic thing or any fame I could have.

The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.
I have learned the hard way to mind my business, without judging who people are and what they do. I am more troubled by the lack of space being provided for the truth to unfold. Humans cannot seem to wait for or honor the truth. Instead, we make it up based on who we believe people should or should not be.
As young West Point cadets, our motto was 'duty, honor, country.' But it was in the field, from the rice paddies of Southeast Asia to the sands of the Middle East, that I learned that motto's fullest meaning. There I saw gallant young Americans of every race, creed and background fight, and sometimes die, for 'duty, honor, and their country.'
It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles.
Every good citizen makes his country's honor his own, and cherishes it not only as precious but as sacred. He is willing to risk his life in its defense and its conscious that he gains protection while he gives it.
The battle of life is, in most cases, fought uphill; and to win it without a struggle were perhaps to win it without honor. If there were no difficulties there would be no success; if there were nothing to struggle for, there would be nothing to be achieved.
Masculinity is not something given to you, but something you gain. And you gain it by winning small battles with honor.
Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.
I have a personal ambition to live my life honestly and honor the true love that I've had and also the people I've had around me.
