Define honor

Preferably your own definition, not what some guy on tv tells you to think, or something copy and pasted from the dictionary that you don't even really understand.

  • Honor means upholding your principles.

    Answer by Bmat at 11:41 AM on Aug. 28, 2010

  • Honor ...Is recognising those who have decided to give all they have to do what is right.
    There are several biblical examples of honor
    The woman with the alabaster box
    The widow with only 2 mite
    In history
    Martin Luther King
    Rosa Parks
    What Former President Bush did when the troops came home in Dallas recently
    I cant think of a lot right now but there are a lot of people worth honoring! Some I dont even know about.
    In that post of mine NP .the people that are being honored, many are african americans, others who were born in other countries but live here now. one is a baseball player
    We are restoring Honor to them what was taken from them years ago
    We are giving back to those that honor and respect was taken from them
    When people are not giving honor and respect it tears down
    What your doing in that post NP is dishonoring ... there is no honor nor respect, just hateful comments. I am sorry but thats how it

  • my own definition of honor is someone who is honest. You can take their word and know it is their WORD or oath if you will. Someone who stands strong for what they believe is right, and against what they believe is wrong. It is a type of pride that others place upon you based on your actions, which at times includes bravery.

  • Upholding your principles while listening and possibly incorporating others ideals to refine your own principles in a forthright and honest manner.

  • To me, it's a thing of respect given or received due to good merit or actions which have displayed high values and morals.

  • I think honor can be easily framed in the one rule we have in our home. BE NICE. If you think about it, it covers pretty much everything. I tell my boys, "one rule, two words..if everyone lived by it the world would be much happier."

  • I didn't see anyone 'screamed' at because they weren't going to watch LOL..thats a bit of a fib..

    Answer by tnmomofive at 2:41 PM on Aug. 28, 2010

  • To me personally, honor means keeping my word, doing what is right regardless of who approves/disapproves or is even there to see, and standing up for what I believe in.

    Honoring someone else means treating them with courtesy at the very least, being proud of them for what they've accomplished, being thankful they are in my life or changed it somehow, and remembering them after they are gone.

    I can't remember the exact quote, but it goes something like ~ Honor is an island with no beach. Once you've left it, you can't return. To me this is very true.
