Harland David "Colonel""" Sanders
It is better to fail in a cause that will ultimately succeed than to succeed in a cause that will ultimately fail.
A constructive, useful life, good works, and good relationships are as valid as writing poetry or inventing a machine. Anything that one does well and obtains satisfaction from is a good enough reason for living. To be a decent human being that people like and feel better for knowing is enough.
Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn't blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won't cheat, then you know he never will.
John D. MacDonald
That you may retain your self-respect, it is better to displease the people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong.
William J.H. Boetcker
If your success is not on your own terms, if it looks good to the world but does not feel good in your heart, it is not success at all.

Parking At The ZooSubmitted by Julius Caesar Robinson
I never told anyone this before, but I remember when my youngest daughter and I were leaving the Zoo, I had a great parking spot right in front of the entrance.

At one home I passed, I noticed a newspaper that was lying near the curb instead of near the doorstep. Thinking I...

Kathy ReinsagerSubmitted by Todd B. Reinsager
It's my Mother. My entire upbringing of respect, honesty, integrity, morality and treating people like I want to be treated is because of her.

"Integrity is the recognition of the fact that you cannot fake your consciousness."-Ayn Rand. Remember that your mind and body are permanently integrated. If your actions contradict your convictions you are on a path to self-disintegration, i.e. self-destruction.

Major Williams Tree, Michigan
Integrity is doing the right thing, not because you have to, but because you want to.
Kim N, Sacramento, CA
I think more people should start giving themselves "integrity checks". Then they may start thinking before speaking or acting out of emotion. Once you do or say something,you cannot take it back, so think first and ALWAYS BE HONEST in what you are doing. If your ashamed stop!
Sarah Mullen, the South
I think a big part of integrity is doing what you say you'll do...keeping promises to others and to yourself...being true to your committments. I agree with an earlier post. Integrity is becoming extinct.
Integrity is about looking in the mirror and holding yourself accountable to none other than... yourself.
Beau Hodson, Chicago, IL
The truth can hurt, but sometimes its worth the cleanse of our souls.

Integrity is an endangered species. It is almost extinct in the minds of people when contemplating their options to life's problems.

There is no "I" in team, but there is one in Integrity.
