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.
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.
Dr. Wayne Dyer
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.
W. Clement Stone
Peter F. Drucker
I am resolved that I will not through humility become the devil's attorney. I will endeavor to speak a good word for the truth.

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.
