honor

If you were to go, and hopefully someday you will, you would see a lot of paintings of dead people. You’d see Jesus on the cross, and you’d see a dude get stabbed in the neck, and you’d see people dying at sea and in battle and a parade of martyrs. But Not. One. Single. Cancer. Kid. Nobody biting it from the plague or smallpox or yellow fever or whatever, because there is no glory in illness. There is no meaning to it. There is no honor in dying of.

John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Winston Churchill

You think my life is such a precious thing to me, that I would trade my honour for a few more years… of what?

A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers.

John F. Kennedy

I love the name of honor, more than I fear death.
