Karmacology: Mindful Living, Sacred Practice

Honor Rejoices the Heart of Age

Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always, even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for?
-- William J. Bennett, lecture to the United States Naval Academy, November 24, 1997
