A Quote by Fred Robert Tiffany, D.D. on appreciation, honor, liberty, people, sacrifice, and suffering

People generally do not appreciate what they do not suffer for. A thing is held to be cheap if it did not cost dearly. Honor is lightly worn if it was easily attained. Inherited liberty is too often carelessly used until it is repossessed through sacrifices.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on action, country, deception, economics, honor, individuality, politics, and responsibility

You must keep your honor! You can't speak for the country; you can do little about the national economy or actions of moral weaklings who excuse themselves with the expression, "That is politics; nor can you be responsible for deception in others. But you are responsible for yourself! There are no collective panaceas - only individual ones.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on character, cheating, deception, honor, judgment, learning, lies, and women

An honorable man or woman is one who is truthful; free from deceit; above cheating, lying, stealing, or any form of deception. An honorable man or woman is one who learns early that one cannot do wrong and feel right. A man's character is judged on how he keeps his word and his agreements.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on character, civilization, god, happiness, honor, meaning, poets, and trust

If there is one word that describes the meaning of character, it is the word honor. Without honor, civilization would not long exist. Without honor, there could be no dependable contracts, no lasting marriages, no trust or happiness. What does the word honor mean to you? To me, honor is summarized in this expression by the poet Tennyson, "Man's word [of honor] is God in man."

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on character, honor, and words

"On my honor" - what an ennobling phrase! Three short words, nine letters, but the summation of all we call character. From the Boy Scout's Oath.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on character, compromise, honesty, honor, lies, strength, and temptation

Have you ever asked yourself why one person is honorable and another dishonorable; why one is honest, another dishonest; why one is moral, another immoral? Most individuals do not intend to be dishonest, dishonorable, or immoral. They seem to allow their characters to erode by a series of rationalizations, lies, and compromises. Then when grave temptation presents itself, they haven't the strength of character to do what they know to be right.
