Honour is a concept that Suzanne finds comes in at interactions between people that are non-regular. It’s more likely to be evidenced in situations that you don’t face every day – situations that may be at the extremes of human behaviour in the modern day. You can act honourably in any situation you face, but honour is subjective to your own interpretation, and how the people around you view what you have done (and to a lesser extent, why you have done it).
