    ...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...

    When flirting with women,

    I have 2 rules. If she's in a relationship, she's off limits. If I'm in a relationship, everyone is off limits.

    If my friend gets into a fight,

    I'll do 1 of 2 things. If my friend starts the fight, I'll try to break up the fight by pulling my friend away, but I won't fight his opponents. I feel that if my friend starts the fight, his injuries are his own fault. If the other person starts the fight, I will defend 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...

    My Own

    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...

    Knightly Code

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Aristocracy

    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...

    My Code Has Eveolved With Wisdom Of Years

    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...

    Too Bad Others Do Not
