Fame Vs. Honor

Dr. John Lukacs

Dr. John Lukacs

“In our times, toward the end of the Modern Age, the difference―indeed, the dependency―between fame and honor has become so great that in the character of presidents, and in those of public figures in all kinds of endeavor, the passion for fame has well-nigh obliterated the now remote and ancient sense of honor.” ― Remembered Past; On History, Historians, and Historical Knowledge, by John Lukacs, Chapter V, Page 614, edited by Mark G. Malvasi and Jeffrey O. Nelson, ISI Books, Wilmington, Delaware, © 2005 ISI Books.
