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 in a
lecture to the U. S. Naval Academy, Nov 24, 1997
