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.
To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; to be credible we must be truthful.
Edward R. Murrow
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
Dr. Wayne Dyer
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
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
Life is an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get. What you see in others, exists in you. Remember, life is an echo. It always gets back to you. So give goodness.

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.
