honor

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on character, habits, honor, independence, men, privacy, self-esteem, simplicity, solitude, and world

Self Esteem::"It is very easy in the world to live by the opinion of the world. It is very easy in solitude to be self-centered. But the finished man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude. I knew a man of simple habits and earnest character who never put out his hands nor opened his lips to court the public, and having survived several rotten reputations of younger men, honor came at last and sat down with him upon his private bench from which he had never stirred.

A Quote by Price Pritchett, Ph.D. on agreement, behavior, certainty, day, ethics, honor, jobs, life, needs, rest, rules, songs, value, and war

"You, who are on the road, must have a code that you can live by-"* You'll find universal agreement on the value of a behavior code, on the need for some sort of ethical system. Even the crooks count on "honor among thieves," and countries actually wage war according to certain rules. On the job and in the rest of our day-to-day living, we each need a "code for the road." *Crosby, Stills & Nash in a hit song.

A Quote by Philip D. Reed on action, america, constitution, debt, economics, freedom, government, honor, people, respect, separation, speech, understanding, and worship

A PRIMER OF AMERICAN SELF-GOVERNMENT I. Understand, honor and preserve the Constitution of the United States. 2. Keep forever separate and distinct the legislative, executive and judicial functions of government. 3. Remember that government belongs to the people, is inherently inefficient, and that its activities should be limited to those which government alone can perform. 4. Be vigilant for freedom of speech, freedom of worship, and freedom of action. 5. Cherish the system of Free Enterprise which made America great. 6. Respect thrift and economy, and beware of debt. 7. Above all, let us be scrupulous in keeping our word and in respecting the rights of others.
