Verbal request by Allison Windrom
“When honor dies, when faith is lost, the man is dead.”
Paladin quoting John Greenleaf Whittier
“When faith is lost, when honor dies, the man is dead.”
John Greenleaf Whittier
“Who hath honor? He who died o’ Wednesday. Doth he feel it. No! Therefore, I’ll none of it.”
Paladin quoting Falstaff
“Tis not due yet; I would be loath to pay him before
his day. What need I be so forward with him that
calls not on me? Well, ’tis no matter; honour pricks
me on. Yea, but how if honour prick me off when I
come on? how then? Can honour set to a leg? no: or
an arm? no: or take away the grief of a wound? no.
Honour hath no skill in surgery, then? no. What is
honour? a word. What is in that word honour? What
is that honour? air. A trim reckoning! Who hath it?
He that died o’ Wednesday. Doth he feel it? no.
Doth he hear it? no. ‘Tis insensible, then. Yea,
to the dead. But will it not live with the living?
no. Why? detraction will not suffer it. Therefore
I’ll none of it. Honour is a mere scutcheon: and so
ends my catechism.”
William Shakespeare, Henry IV Part 1 Act V Scene 1
