If you die with honor you still die which is problematic. If you do enough fricked up shite and are forced to forgive yourself in order to move forward you kind of become shameless after a while actually.

Honor's a fickle thing, and has committed many a man to his grave. But the dead don't bask in the glory of their unsullied honor. They bathe in graveworms. Sure, their songs may be sung for a while, but they are sung by men with enough sense to live.
Honor is all well and good, but never underestimate the power of cunning, for it will fell the honorable man far more often than righteous stands. And it's the living who write the histories.
