Who is an honorable man?

The following is an excerpt from a samvaad (dialogue) session with Acharya Prashant.

Question: What is the definition of ‘an honorable man’? Is being honorable good or bad?

Acharya Prashant (AP): सम्मान=सम्यक्+मान

सम्यक मानने का अर्थ है समझना ।

तो जो समझ सकता है, वो सम्माननीय। जो नासमझ है उसका कोई सम्मान नहीं।
