In addition to litteacher8's examples, we can say that this quote relates to John Proctor's situation in the last act of the play. He has two options there: to falsely confess and avoid death by hanging or to truthfully deny any participation in witchcraft and die.
Proctor considers the "wisdom" of the quote here and ultimately decides that honor is better than wisdom.
