Politics is too partisan, and sometimes patriotism is cast aside. Patriotism is honor and love of your country and your brothers and sisters. With politics I get the impression that it's all about what's good for the party and not necessarily what's good for the country.
If we are marked to die, we are enough to do our country loss; and if to live, the fewer men, the greater share of honor.
Our soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen volunteer to protect and defend this country and all its citizens, and do so with honor, integrity and excellence. Our nation continually asks them to do more and more, with less and less.
For though we love both the truth and our friends, piety requires us to honor the truth first.
The difference between a moral man and a man of honor is that the latter regrets a discreditable act, even when it has worked and he has not been caught.
H. L. Mencken
Great eagerness in the pursuit of wealth, pleasure, or honor, cannot exist without sin.
If honor were profitable, everybody would be honorable.
When faith is lost, when honor dies, the man is dead.
John Greenleaf Whittier
It's always an honor to be ranked high, but whatever is said about you, you take it and then take a realistic look at yourself and who you are.
And the university's reputation will only continue to grow as stories like Elaine's are spread. Delaware State University's motto 'a past to honor, a future to insure,' couldn't be any more fitting for this transitional period you are going through.
Michael N. Castle
To the Master's honor all must turn, each in its track, without a sound, forever tracing Newton's ground.
Piety requires us to honor truth above our friends.
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
Honor your commitments with integrity.
Honor means that a man is not exceptional; fame, that he is. Fame is something which must be won; honor, only something which must not be lost.
I can't tell you what an honor it is, to even be mentioned in the same breath with Arthur Ashe. This is something I certainly will treasure forever.
Titles of honor are like the impressions on coins, which add no value to gold or silver, but only render brass current.
If you seek Hamilton's monument, look around. You are living in it. We honor Jefferson, but live in Hamilton's country, a mighty industrial nation with a strong central government.
At my funeral, if one said, 'Nick was a generous person,' trust me I won't be doing cartwheels in my coffin. Recognition from people is never and never will be a goal. Some people strive for that respect or honor. Living a life to just reach for the position and status is vanity and sin.
I never make a movie for awards consideration. I will use the hope of getting an Academy Award a) to honor the people who work so hard and also b) it's the greatest Good Housekeeping seal in the world. It's the greatest brand. It's as good as Louis Vuitton and Dior in the world of moviemaking. It's the Super Bowl.

America's honor, your honor is at stake. Go out and preserve the greatest country in the history of the world.
I try to be respectful about getting an honor or recognition, but I don't really know what the Rock Hall actually is. In my experience with the people who run it, I don't see it having to do with anything other than them making money.
We wish that all countries around the world honor our wishes and our Jihad, and we avoid interfering in their business.
Honor is a gift a man gives himself. You can be as good as anyone that ever lived. If you can read, you can learn everything that anyone ever learned. But you've got to want it.
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
