Respect is the time when people give an ethical value to a person in a way of recognizing them with high esteem in a personal perspective. On the other hand, honor is characterized more by the process of assessing a person’s degree and social status. The basis of giving respect to an individual is his/her qualities that is commendable and which is also a trait that defines the personality of the person. While the honor’s basis is the person’s notable works or achievements in the society which deserves a proper recognition and applause.

In providing respect, the character of a person is transcended but is also being involved in the way a person gives respect to his culture, society, and history. Honor is mostly recognized by people as higher than respect because every honored person is respected but not every respected people were honored.
