"If honor be your clothing, the suit will last a lifetime;
but if clothing be your honor, it will soon be worn threadbare."

Reader comments about this quote:
A great catch-all mind movie there. Very well stated. It brings to mind a recent political event where, Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin's threadbare patrons sent in paid politicos to Sandy devastated areas, telling them to get out and vote for him; while, his opponent sent in volunteers to aid in the relief. Two socialists, one with some sense of honor, the other with a new publicly paid for suit of clothes.

    Our present Emporor has no clothing.
    Very well said.

    A man of honor can include one who does not know he is wrong. Obama knows very well the lies he tells -- not sure Romney does, and that makes him similar to Reagan in my book. But both candidates are pro-Big Government and that is why they are our choices. Had the people really been given a choice, Ron Paul would have taken this election hands down.

    Socialist put stock in what is seen, honor is a suit best worn by Patriots of Liberty and Freedom who seeing not, are kept warm in the long dark night.
