“Act well your part; there all honor lies.”
When you do something right and just it is honorable because you did not cheat or lie. Everything we do good heartedly should be honored and praised because not everyone is honorable and good. Very few of us nowadays do things with integrity. We often do things without integrity which on its own deserves no respect or honor. If you win by cheating, you are bringing dishonor upon yourself. Do things how they are intended to be done is an honorable thing. If you do something right you yourself feel honor and pride within you. When firefighters rescue lives they feel honored to recieve medals for their heroic deeds.
