5th Day of Yule – Remembering the Noble Virtue of Honor
"Honor is the ability to hold your head high in all situations. We set standards for ourselves and live according to those standards. We are not encouraged to set low standards, rather, set high standards and work toward them continually, even behind closed doors."
