Better to die ten thousand deaths than wound my honor.
When vice prevails, and impious men bear sway, the post of honor is a private station.

Our own heart, and not other men's opinion, forms our true honor.
Honor is unstable, and seldom netthe same; for she feeds upon opinion, and is as fickle as her food. She builds a lofty structure on the sandy foundation of the esteem of those who are of all beings the most subject to change.
Honor is most capricious in her rewards.—She feeds us with air, and often pulls down our house to build our monument.
Woman's honor is nice as ermine; it will not bear a soil.
Honor is not a matter of any man's calling merely, but rather of his own actions in it.

If it be a sin to covet honor, I am the most offensive soul alive.
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
