Great post Marian.... there are a lot of men on this site who share those characteristics and it fills me with hope. Seems to me that a man of honour has honesty, gentleness and humility of soul and someone who sticks to his principles (a man who acts like Christ to others) but prepared to listen to both sides of an arguement and make a reasoned decision.

I am glad you like the topic. I think it has been positive and that is good.

(Quote) Michael-756537 said: The first thing I thought when I read this is that it is a little arrogant and not very honorable to describe yourself as a man of honor. It would be more honorable to say that honor is something we strive for but do not presume to have.

I understand what you are trying to say. Perhaps the man who wrote it has studied what it means to have honor. There are books on virtue although I don't know if that is what we are talking about when we say honor. There have been very diverse opinions shared so wed have to study it further to see what it could mean to define onesself that way. I think if a man has military experience and works in a feild where he is called on to rely on ethical principles, he may term himself as a man of honor. Does that definition or explanation change your thoughts any?

Now that I think about it, I see it as a man who works and lives by a set of ethical principles.

What a great topic! Thanks for posting! wave

I came across one honorable man in particular the other day. He's a young man, married, a child on the way. This young man is related to me and after greeting me, stepped back, looked into my eyes and offered a heartfelt 'thank you' for something I recently did to help his family. The look he gave me was one of deep gratitude and Christ-like love. I was so touched and impressed by this.

It struck me as very honorable because he made a wonderful effort to express his gratitude to me. knight-errant

Remembering to express gratitude and taking the time tolook into your eyes and then to do so would be a quality of a man of honor! That is beautiful Maia! rose
