I Believe In a Code of Honor

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 594 People

    Honour is a lost art.

    The honour that was prevalent in Greek and Roman times, the honour of knights of old is an en empty word these days. My code of honour has some unbendable rules. 1. Always keep your word and mean what you say. 2. Protect people you love and if anyone messes with any of them...

    It Defines Who I Am

    I've always considered it to be the most important thing. Behaving honorably has been my top priority throughout life. But it's also what frustrates me most about the world. I don't see honor anywhere. There may be other things that irritate me about people, but I absolutely can...

    Out of everything it's what I believe in fully

    and let rule me. Even if it is not appreciated. I feel honor is a must, and I will always aim for it at my worst and happiest moments. I have no doubt that it is the right thing to do. Even though I may fail by lack of perfection, and others may do better. I will always try my...

    Let honor rule my body

    and my mind. Let it fuel my heart and guide my choices. Let honor be branded to my soul. I am for honor and all it's relations. Hated or loved. Let me live in honor. Amen.

    I Live By the Code...

    I live by the code and will die by the code. I do have a very intense code of honor, some of it instilled by my military upbringing.. some gathered by my own choice of beliefs. But this is pretty much my whole code of ethics and honor, which I hold close to my heart! ...

    When you honor people,

    when you go out of your way to make them feel special, all that honor you’re pouring in will come back to you or your family.

    ...though I'll Be Damned If I Know What It Is.

    I suppose I really just believe in the concept of a CoH. The idea that you have a clear line in your own head and heart that you will not cross. I couldn't honestly tell you if I have one myself though. I spend too much time seeing the world in shades of grey that it makes it...

    Code of Honor

    What I Believe

    One of the reasons I believe in a code of honor is because of who I belive in. Also if you don't honor yourself, don't expect other people too. I also believe that you reap what you sow. So I try to watch how I treat people and even if people aren't kind at least I know I'm...

    Always Followed, Never Written

    This is probably the first time I've ever thought to write down my code. And will probably will be revised till its as close to 'perfection' as I can make it. 1. Every promise kept unless requested to be released. A person's word should be worth more then gold. 2. Stand up for...

    Aristocracy

    Too Bad Others Do Not

    From the time I was a child I was taught about honor. Let me change that ...Honor. To keep my word. To champion those with less than I, or weaker than I. To buoy the spirit and hope of others. To be dependable. I was carefully taught, that fear is not just a mind...

    Code of Honor

    There needs to be a Code of Honor in everything in order to maintain justice and fairness. Just think about it. The United States of America's Code of Honor(USACH)is the law. Get it??? I don't think you do.
