Yes. Trying to leave the world and each situation and person better of than they were when he found them would be a way I might describe this man.

Reminds me of what we were taught in the boy and girl scouts. We were always taught to leave a place better than we found it. biggrin

LOVE when men are focused and grounded. Maybe that's because I often feel like a kite being tossed around by the wind. I am attracted to someone who helps me be grounded and centered so I don't get carried away!

you dont lie

you dont cheat

you dont steal

you always hold the door for a lady.

ABSOLUTELY. I think it is so wonderful to see people go the extra mile and to participate in that process to make this world better and to help where it is needed. We needs to pray for those who serve in this way. That includes you and me Dawn and many others who do the work we do. wink hug

EXCELLENT! I agree with Dawn that honor is something that is passed down. I would be proud of your Dad too as I am proud of mine for the same reasons!!!

Honor is a matter of your yes meaning yes and your no meaning no


Honor is embracing
God's principles and beliefs by bring them to life in ones life

I read a profile recently where the gentleman listed this about himself stating that he is a man of honor. I was very impressed and wanted to know more. What types of qualities would a man of honor possess? How would you describe him and how he lives? Thank you ahead of time for the discussion we will have!

Honor is a word we do not hear a lot these days. Do certain actions, qualities or behaviors and beliefs come to mind?

I have been teaching and I notice that in the public schools there is a serious attempt to teach values and morals as well as an attempt to help children promise to graduate from high school by having them make this pledge daily along with pledging to reach for other positive goals. They review the rules of good behavior each day as well. I am so impressed with this.

What do you think of this?


In an adult what constitutes honor?

I would agree with Ray that a man of honor highly values integrity, but I think integrity is the driving force. I believe that a man of honor is someone who lives a virtuous life and finds the virtues to be the guidepost in his life. I would bring together the theological (faith, hope, love) and the cardinal (prudence, justice, fortitude, temperance) virtues in describing the virtues he lives. I believe integrity is what keeps him living those virtues. That he finds the virtues to be the core of his very self and to violate any of them is to violate his very self.
