    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.

    My Code Has Eveolved With Wisdom Of Years

    I haven't always felt this way, but the older I get, the more I feel there are certain traits that define a good man. I say man but could easily be for a woman too for the most part, it is just that I use these to define the man I strive to be. My code of Honor consists of...

    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...

    I Will Never Alter It

    My Dad taught me what honor was. He was the most honorable man I have ever met. I have always wanted to be just like my Dad. I am incredibly thankful that I had a man like him to be my role model. He taught me to be honest, loyal, trustworthy, respectful, brave, and accepting of...

    My Code.

    I have for as long as I have been an adult striven to live by a largely unspoken code. First and foremost is to always speak the truth. To do what we feel is right. To respect everyone. To always be fair. To be reliable. To work with others. To bring positive influences to...

    I think morality is universal.  The 10 commandments are an emanation of it but such codes exist in every culture and they are similar. They reflect what we all know almost genetically about how to deal with others in a respectful way.  The subtext is invariably that...

    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...

    Code of Honor

     I have been taught to have a strict code of honor all my life. It seems that the majority of people that I encounter (especially yonega [that is Cherokee for "white people"]) do not even know what the meaning of honor is. Almost everyone that I encounter every...

    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.

    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 believe in living with a Code of Honour - of being the best person i can be, to treating others with respect, courtesy, kindness and friendship; to helping those who need it, from doing shopping, or giving to charity, to offering a shoulder to cry on, to arms to hug and protect...

    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...

    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...

    I am blessed and I found out how much today. I have a close friend whom I love very much. I have a boss that is incomparable to any man that I will probably ever meet. I have a healthy, beautiful, sarcastic daughter whom I adore to bits. What more could I ask for? I met this...

    ...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...
