Famous quotes containing the word honorable:

    Since an intelligence common to us all makes things known to us and formulates them in our minds, honorable actions are ascribed by us to virtue, and dishonorable actions to vice; and only a madman would conclude that these judgments are matters of opinion, and not fixed by nature.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero (106–43 B.C.)

    An honorable murderer, if you will,
    For naught I did in hate, but all in honor.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The most useful and honorable science and occupation for a woman is the science of housekeeping. I know some that are miserly, very few that are good managers.
    Michel de Montaigne (1533–1592)
