So to be only as good as your word is to say that if you do not keep your promises , then you are a bad person ; if you do keep your promises , then you are a good person .
“The good man is the man who, no matter how morally unworthy he has been, is moving to become better.” — John Dewey.
To make a serious promise, assurance, or vow (to someone ). I give you my word that I will do everything in my power to have this matter resolved by next week. You gave your word that you ‘d be there , so don’t even think about backing out now.

Quote by Rodd Thunderheart: “A man’s only as good as his word.”
Personality traits: Sense of humor , intelligence , passion (not the sexual kind, but an active enthusiasm in a pursuit), confidence , generosity. Practical skills: Listening (53 percent), romancing, being good in bed, cooking and cleaning, earning potential.
A good man is secure and confident, but not arrogant. That means he treats everyone with respect until they give him a reason not to. He knows that giving respect and agreement are not the same, and the key is to treat people with kindness, humility, and grace.
And when a man is loved correctly , he becomes ten times the man he was before.

To renege is to go back on your word or fail to keep a promise . Not quite lying, reneging is more a sin of omission — failing to do what you said you would. The Latin negāre means “to deny,” so by reneging on your word , you are denying someone whatever you promised them.
8. A Real Man’s Word Is His Bond. When a real man makes a promise, he keeps it. If he can’t keep a promise, he doesn’t give his word . Every man knows that his words are as powerful as his actions, and that they must be taken at face value.
A man , without his word is nothing. A man , without his word is nothing. If you want to be the kind of man who stands out from the crowd, you should be a man who keeps his word . This is a matter of honor.
: doing what one said one would do : keeping one’s promise He said he would help, and he was true to his word .
