Honor is responding to the moral requirements another person’s qualities place on us when we accept their benefits. It’s keeping the covenant entered into when we receive someone’s kindness, friendship, loyalty, or trust. (I have failed in this miserably, and will not lower the bar to convince myself otherwise.)
