A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Honor, as it is understood by cadets and those responsible for training them, is a fundamental attribute of character.  Its underlying principle is truth; the cadet is truthful both by act and by implication.  The cadet honor code has, as its objective, fearless honesty in setting forth the truth regardless of consequences.  Quibbling, cheating, evasive statements or recourse to technicalities to conceal guilt or defeat the ends of justice are not tolerated.  The Corps of Cadets is responsible that all cadets meet the standards of the code.  Cadets are expected to adhere to the spirit of this code at all times and without reservation.
recourse to technicalities to conceal guilt or defeat the ends of justice are not tolerated.  The assumption is clear: it is that each man knows when he is guilty, knows when he quibbles and evades, knows what justice is.  Law is not a matter of procedure, evidence, extenuating circumstance, shades of gray.  It is Duty Honor Country, and those are plain enough.  A man knows when he has sinned.  He knows right from wrong.  American society may change its rules, the Supreme Court may make sociological law, but not West Point.  For an Army officer, morals and ethics do not change.
