Lee had another word that was the Hallmark for his life. That word was DUTY. He said that Duty was the most sublime word in the english language. That a man should strive to do no less than his duty. Put those two words together "Duty" and "Honor" as a life practise and you have a fulltime occupation. Very few people have mastered that occupation over the course of a lifetime. Robert E. Lee and George Washington DID and that is what made them Great.
