It is better to die than preserve life by incurring disgrace. The loss of life only pains a moment, but disgrace every day of one's life.
Disgrace is immortal, and living even when one thinks it dead.
No one can disgrace us but ourselves.
To him who disgraces his family life is no life, and to such a person there is no one a friend, neither while living nor when dead.
PLATO, attributed, Day's Collacon
That only is a disgrace to a man which he has deserved to suffer.
To be wealthy and honored in an unjust society is a disgrace.
Lack of moderation is the father of disgrace.
Act with propriety, and disgrace will keep far from you.
CHUNG YEW, attributed, Day's Collacon
Dishonor is like the Aaron's Beard in the hedgerows; it can only poison if it be plucked.
OUIDA, attributed, Forty Thousand Quotations
The disgrace of the city is the fault of the citizens.
Come, Death, and snatch me from disgrace.
EDWARD BULWER LYTTON, Richelieu
PERIANDER, attributed, Day's Collacon
Disgrace does not consist in the punishment, but in the crime.
VITTORIO ALFIERI, Antigone
The rabble, as of old, truckles to success, and hates a favourite in disgrace.
