I can be forced to live without happiness, but I will never consent to live without honor
But without money honor is nothing but a malady
Those are most desirous of honor and glory who cry out the loudest of its abuse and the vanity of the world
Honour and shame from no condition rise; act well your part, there all the honour lies
A man of honor should never forget what he is because he sees what others are
Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life
A person dishonored is worst than dead
What is left when honor is lost?
It is better to deserve honors and not have them than to have them and not deserve them
What he feels and not what he does honors a man

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
