As I have observed if you mention honour in a conversation, people will usually do one of two things these days.
* change the subject as fast as possible
* walk away really fast
What does honour mean in my books?
Well its a code of living. Its not about looking pretty to the outside world, it means a lot more than that. I think in this superficial society, thats why the idea makes people scurry off.
Honour is, among other things,
* telling the truth
* being trustworthy
* being true to yourself
* keeping your word - if you find something is impossible for you to do as agreed, then you make it clear, up-front.
* trying to do things that are helpful and useful to your community
* respecting, and in turn expecting respect.
* having an open mind
And sticking by those principles come what may.
