Oddly enough, John never thought of Walter Raleigh when writing this, and was amused when pointed its similarity to him...

Thank you. It's been a long time since a poem moved me to tears.

I looked up "honor" on 'freedictionary.com:

[http://www.thefreedictionary.com/honor]

"Reverence" was listed as a synonym for "honorer" and one of the notes included a quote by Ayn Rand:

[ Reverence is a feeling of deep respect and devotion: "Kill reverence and you've killed the hero in man" -Ayn Rand. ]

There's that word "hero" again...

And "reverence", I didn't know Ayn Rand ever used the word. Does anyone know where this quote came from?
