Honor, capabilities and rivalry are intertwined.
We often praise things that we are hardly capable of doing ourselves.
Take Courage, patience and integrity as 3 examples that are the corners of such a behavior. If Lata Mangeshkar could paint as well as M. F. Hussein he would not praise her for her arts. He might not even praise her for music either. Thats where rivalry sets in. A rivalry is when you forget all other strength and weakness because there is only one thing that pricks you hard about someone.
Rivalry is a bridge that acts to promote your selfish motives. When water is deep that does not work.
